I used books of the Dogon people as reference for these establishing shots. In these books, the oranges, gold, and brown melt together to make a very warm colors. Very Vibrant.
These are layouts from my recent film. The pan to reveal the desert and the heat took me two days to plan and two weeks to paint. These images are digital paintings but I tried to use the medium like a pastel drawing.

This is the early color script to Dusk- The image includes scenes both deleted and not created yet. The color is basically the same. I tried to capture the warmth of the desert. The biggest challenge is whether the characters will silhouette properly. I thank Pat Harpin for a good idea of making the characters purple. :)

When Ceasar returned to Rome around 50 BCE. He was both a hero of the people and a villain to the senate. Whether this is true or not is moot. What is real is this man killed many, hands dirty with blood of others and came back with a heros reception. Enough pseudo history, this is another water color.
The story I came up with this is a robot destroys all society to the brink. In the mist of the chaos it runs out of energy and becomes a huge monolith. Though this monolith is not made of Stone, still the idea humans build a home on its destroyer. A paradox that I can see happening. The "black balloons" are really trash hurled from Trebuchets build on the robot.

Fine art? Let you decide...
This is a small sample of my portfolio. These were taken out of my artbooks arranging sizes from 11"x18" to 4"x6". I tried my best to catalog my pieces and to give them a title.
The image on the left was done while Corny Cole III of Calarts was still reachable. I still think he is doing fine
When I was in San Diego, CA I painted these images. They can be found in this notebook I made.
The Beach head in La Jolla during overcast can make for some insightful scenes.
These are quick 10 sec sketches of my cube and work area. To talk about those times in the past tense of scary/ calming.
