But once he dis­cov­ered art books for the Star Wars pre­quels, he im­me­di­ately knew that he wanted to move into the field of con­cept art.

“I stud­ied tra­di­tional artists such as John Singer Sar­gent and Al­bert Bier­stadt,” the Texan says, “and dig­i­tal artists like Sparth and Craig Mullins. I try to look at as many artists as pos­si­ble for in­spi­ra­tion. I also try to find ev­ery­day things in my en­vi­ron­ment that might in­spire ideas for paint­ings.”

1 Morn­ing Hunt “Two city guards are out at dawn track­ing down an as­sas­sin. I ex­per­i­mented with colour sat­u­ra­tion and mood light­ing, and used some photo tex­tures, but most of the im­age is hand-painted.”

2 Faster Than Light “I wanted to de­pict a fu­tur­is­tic cityscape where hu­man be­ings can travel at the speed of light by be­ing trans­formed into light. This is mostly hand-painted, al­though I used some photo tex­tures for the win­dows on the build­ings.”

3 Spring Thaw “This is an im­age of the spring thaw in the south­ern king­dom. I painted it in Pho­to­shop us­ing tra­di­tional paint­ing meth­ods, look­ing at im­ages of Patag­o­nia and gla­cial melts for ref­er­ence.”
