Contrary to popular belief, a Mimic is not a monster, but a man who lives inside a treasure chest and wants to beat you up for disturbing his home.

Here is something I forgot to post. My cousin got married recently and she asked me to do an illustration of herself and her maid of honor as super heroes, along with their cat and favorite stuffed bear. I never really drew super heroes much before so it was fun!

Mothers day card

Here is an example of the meaningful, heartfelt cards I make my mom for mothers day. Also I have been listening to a lot of Comedy Bang Bang lately, and it is quickly becoming one of my new favorite podcasts. Here is a clip. I recommend any episode with Andy Daly in it.

Alien Character and Environment

Here is some stuff I did! It was fun!

Also while I was doing these, I started watching this British show called Utopia which I think is pretty good, but the thing I really really like is its soundtrack. I have been listening to it non stop for the past few days. Here is a good track from it, and if you are into it you can give the full thing a listen HERE.

infantry thumbnails

Its been a while since I last posted! I got really sick and have spent the past 2 weeks recovering. I am pretty much all good now though so back to art! Here are some little character thumbnails for another game idea I got kinda excited about, so I think the plan will be to do both and just switch off whenever I get bored of working on one. anyways these are some thumbnails trying to come up with a basic infantry unit design for a tactics type game.

Color update

Here is an updated version. Still WIP but I'm getting pretty close to done I think. Its hard to get the right material for the level 2 guys armor, rusted and beat up but still with a little specular to it.

WIP Boar guy

Here is an update, I had the flats done for all of them but they just weren't right so I have been spending a while trying to fix them. This guy is the first one that I feel like is getting somewhere I want to be.

A good prez

Found an old painting of George Washington that I did on my hard drive that I remember liking, so this is the follow up! And presidents day was a few days ago so I guess you could say this is for that too.

Boar Monster designs

Finally getting back to the project I started a while back before I got sidetracked by other stuff. I think I want to go a bit more ornate with the level 3 guys helmet but nothing I have tried thus far has really fit.

There is something about Konstantin Pogorelov's art that I really like, just too bad he doesn't update too often. You can see his site here

Blog problems

If you are reading this without getting any warning signs then that's good! Apparently my blog got hacked and I had to completely nuke it and then upload it again.  So anyway I guess if this is all over with i'll get back to posting art.

Bandage Face

This was inspired by another customer that came in to my work the other day. He was dressed in old fashioned clothes, and had a bandage on his nose. He looked like some old school detective that got beat up by some thugs. However he drove away in a PT Cruiser, which kinda ruined the effect..

Bengal has a tumblr!

2014 post

Hi there, its 2014 now, so its time for an art update. I have been working on a few prop designs for a potential job related thing, and its all pretty different from how I normally work.It has to be a lot more realistic and has to incorporate photos and whatnot, so it has been an interesting challenge. I got another one coming soon but in the mean time if you are interested in seeing more, there are some supplemental pieces on my website HERE.

One other thing I am going to try and start doing when I manage to post is link to something I am really liking at the moment, whether its another artist or music or something else. I really enjoy it when I see what other stuff people are into so I am gonna do that too. Anyways here is an album I have really been into recently. I haven't really spent much time listening to music from japan, but I can say I think this album is pretty good all the way through even though I don't know what they are saying.
