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.”
