Previously Unfinished and Unreleased: Star Wars

Like all artists I have some stuff that I never finished because I got caught up doing something else; didn't like it; or I didn't know how to finish. I also have some stuff that I never released because I didn't like it or I felt like something was lacking.
Sometimes I end up at the folder of an unfinished piece that I really like and has potential and I try to think of of ways to finish, but I rarely find a way or inspiration at that time.
So here is the Star Wars related work that I've done that is Unfinished and/or Unreleased.

 Here is the Star Wars gang. The problem was getting a background done good enough for this. I love the way the characters came out, especially Chewbacca, I'm sure this will be finished sometime soon.

Here's The Tattooine mountains with Luke's landspeeder. I got the idea from an old record cover of the Grand Canyon. I don't know why but It just didn't turn out as great as I had hoped.

Here's another attempt at Tattooine, this time it's Luke, Obi-Wan and the droids looking over Mos Eisley Space Port. This one is better, but I feel that it's still lacking something.

with this semester wrapping up, I'm sure I'll be posting more, I have a lot of previously unfinished and unreleased work that I want to show, and maybe get some advice, ideas or suggestions on how to finish. Also I have some more new work that I'd like to post.

Happy Mother's Day

This mother's day I made this piece for my mother-in-law in NY. It's her family and the family dogs. Dad walking Rufus, Mom walking Logan, and my fiance walking Chloe.

Happy Mother's Day!

Sniper Wolf fan art


I'm a huge Metal Gear fan. I saw that The Metal Gear Art Studio was holding a Females of Metal Gear Art Contest, so I made a fan art piece of Sniper Wolf from Metal Gear Solid on the PlayStation. It turns out that you have to draw from the website. Oh well, at least I made out with a cool fan art piece.

Tart Magazine

I've been working with my best buddy from high school, and together we have formed,"RazBarrie Studio!"
Around December we thought it would be cool to release a magazine with our work every quarter. This magazine is about what we draw best, girls. It's an illustrated "girlie" or "stag magazine" which ever you prefer.

We are selling the magazine on Magcloud.com
10$ analog
2$ digital
10$ for both

Here's the link

I've also got a few sketches ready to be vectored for the next issue (No. 2 Vol. 1) to be released in June. Here's one.

Bettie Momo and Tabby Talbain

As I was looking through this blog and my various other works that I created recently I noticed that I didn't have a recent "common" outfit done of Bettie and especially Tabby. So here they are, the two BFF's in their common attire.
This will also come in handy as I'm working on a small book that will contain most of my character designs that I've worked on the past 20 years.

Solid Bettie

Lately I've been playing A LOT of Metal Gear. In the past month and a half I bought Metal Gear (NES); Metal Gear Solid (PS1); Metal Gear Solid: VR Missions (PS1); Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty (PS2); Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance (PS2); Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater (PS2); Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence (PS2); and Metal Gead AC!D (PSP)

I completed MGS (Twice) and MGS2:SOL. I began Metal Gear for the MSX on the MGS3: Subsistence second disc. and play VR Missions whenever I get the urge to play MGS.

This Bettie (err... "Raccoon Girl") piece is inspired by the North American release cover for MGS2:SOL. It's a tribute to Metal Gear's 25th anniversary AND Halloween.

I love the way I made Raccoon Girl's eyes and since she has to be stealth, instead of a tail, her rings are around her leg. This is also a peek at a project I'm working with my good friend Barrie for RazBarrie Studio.

This is the original North American box art for MGS2:SOL that inspired my color choices.
