Destiny inspired character sketch

Love the look of the up coming game Destiny, so thought I'd do an inspired character sketch.  Really enjoy the functional and applied arts within the destiny designs.  Might have to drop some colour into this guy to have some fun with the material mash up in the future.


Jinx fan art

Started playing League of legends recently and decided to do my take on some characters starting with Jinx.

Had a visit from a good friend and great artist Deseo this afternoon.  Super inspiring to see him sketch.  I was inspired to do the following costume doodles.

Gun Mech sketch

Was watching a trailer for a new game called Titan Fall, looks so rad. So thought I'd sketch some Mechs.  Nothing original but fun all the same.  Will try and finish this chap off later in the week.

Okami Tattoo Design





A friend of a friend wanted to see some tattoo designs for his favorite game Okami. I have no idea if this is possible with a tattoo machine but it was a fun exercise.
