Ryu's Dragon Fury

Fall 1994 - This one just started out as a doodle and my hand just went into autopilot with the lines and shading. Ryu's nemesis, Akuma has the kanji for "heaven" on the back of his gi, so I felt Ryu should have the character for "dragon" on his.

Vega vs. Ryu

Fall 1994 - I referenced a photo of the Van Damme movie Street Fighter for this, but replaced the actors with the anime versions of Vega (Balrog) and Ryu. The Street Fighter  video games have always had good figure art. The characters are properly proportioned and aren't overly muscular like many other games.

Knightfall Batman

Winter 1994 - Knightfall was one of my favorite Batman stories of all time. The new costume introduced in that arc was a great way to practice figure drawing with a cape and some armor pieces. In this particular series, I was testing my color pencil technique on different paper textures.

Gung Li Chuan BETA

Winter 1996 - This is an uncolored cel from the completed Gung Li Chuan animation featuring Alyssa Goldenblade. This character has been recently updated since I started playing Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning on PS3. I'll be trying to get back into figure drawing and hopefully can come up with some new pieces of Alyssa inspired by the recent game.

Fire and Gold BETA

Fall 1996 - These are a couple of sketches that eventually lead to the Fire and Gold Photoshop piece. The first was a back view of Shadow Dragon and then the front view that I eventually went with.
