Cliff Lake

Wanted to try out some different ways of approaching environments. This particular approach I took is from Eytan Zana. The approach is not too foreign but its something I wanted to explore a little bit more. He recently posted some psd files from the massive black workshop . I was able to take a look at the layers and break em down and try my own attempt. 

Since I took my time and kept all the layers I will post a tutorial soon of how I approached this paintinginting

Sci-Fi Demo

Quick Sci-Fi Demo done for my students . I usually do not post these because half of the time I do not like them . But as much as I like to think that every painting I do is a success , thats def not the case ( especially when done live and in front of students )

But I will start posting them more , I need to be more efficient about this stuff anyway

hope all is well

Rest In Peace Grandpa

As many of you know my grandfather recently passed away . It was definitely a hard time for the family , but also a great for us to come together to celebrate his life . I was able to meet a lot of people from my Hawaiian side who I have not seen since I was a child , and some I have never met in my life. I will always remember the good times with my grandfather. So I hope you are resting in peace!

This one is for you grandpa, I hope the waves and fish are plentiful in heaven :)

Quick Break

Quick break from work , this year I barely post anything. Sorry for the lack of posts guys . I have been kind of burnt out. Hopefully with this mini vacation I will be taking to go home and see old friends and familiy is exactly what I need to get back into it. I am too young to be burnt out haha.

plus I am getting a new computer too!! so that means I will be trying out more 3d and other avenues of art. My comp is mac pro 2007 haha so I think I earned an upgrade!!

hopefully that means making cool videos too for you guys!!

anyways gotta get back to it!! Thanks for all the support you guys give me . I probably don't say that enough but it really does motivate me when I don't feel like doing work!!

These are a couple of the backgrounds I did for a side scroller called Rush Brothers. Not sure how the game came out , but it was fun to work on side scroller backgrounds . I have always appreciated good side scroller art.

Sorry for the Lack of Streams . I recently took on a Teaching position at A.I. in Sunnyvale. Its been pretty fun thus far and students seem to be excited which is good. 

Our class we are redesigning one of our favorite IP's whether it be games , film , tv show , etc 

I am choosing game of thrones for the glass . So my first painting is a redesign of Kings_Landing. Unfortunately I cannot upload hi_res images or psd since those are restricted for my students . But I just wanted to show you guys I was not dead haha.
