Legend of Korra Book 2

After we finished up on Book One and before we got layouts for Book Two, us background painters got a chance to do some sketches based on the scripts for Book Two.  These are some of the sketches and things I did. 

This ones an actual background though

frozen sacred forest

updated southern air temple area and sky bison cave

This is an part of an ongoing project along with the painting in a previous post.  The project has to do with animals eating one another, being a hunter, and being prey.

Up until recently, I drove back and forth between LA and San Francisco pretty frequently. This is based on the Harris Ranch feed yard off I-5.

Waterfall down from the Mountains, and Prints for WonderCon

 a river tumbling along tonight.

These are the paintings I printed for WonderCon all lined up. I didn't make prints of very many images and i didn't make too many of any of them.  I think I had an "in it for the experience" sort of mentality going in, but it was really fun! I'm pretty sure I'll be doing that again.

I realize its usually before a con that people announce that they're going to have a table, but i suppose its better late than never.  I am in the middle of having a booth at wonder-con with Priscilla Wong. We're in artist alley for the rest of the day. This is my first time having a table at a convention of any kind and really my first time selling personal work.

some nervousness may have worked its way out before hand
(The Thing is one of my favorite horror movies. It's a truly terrifying concept and there is something amazing about the creative practical special effects shot intelligently. To me it might look more fake than CG but it feels more real.  I was thinking about that movie and I think that's what happened here)

but it has actually been great. People are really nice and I really enjoy chatting with everyone who comes up to the table  :D

White Bull

Ariadne and her brother in his labyrinth

     Ya gotta love Greek mythology. Its such a crazy soap opera.  I've been a fan at least since seeing Ray Harryhausen's work in Jason and the Argonauts, and Clash of the Titans on t.v. when I was little.  I thought it would be nice to have some Russian poster melodrama here. 

Ryu ki hyun (an amazing draftsman, all around coolguy, and one of the directors on Korra )  Drew a group caricature of the whole crew and we decided to all draw caricatures of him. This is mine. He is un-phased by his skillz. 



a sketch related to the Minotaur, sort of
