Haunted forrest environments.

I love jungle terrain and overgrown roots...I think creating an environment that actually feels appealing is one of the biggest challenges I face. There arnt any facial expressions or body language to rely on..One of my favorite things is to try and create an environment a player would want to run in and explore for its own sake..at least thats the attempt anyway...

Friar Sand...celestial ogre.

Got a bunch of new stuff coming up for Khrysalis when all of that goes live- but in the meantime heres a few very early concepts I did for Friar Sand in Pirate101. I think these were the first characters I concepted for Kingsisle...about 3 years ago.''

Marlybone sketches

Trash piles and broken props. I know everyone has a secret desire to smash up old English furniture. Quick sketching like this is the most fun for me. I get to explore a lot of ideas quickly without getting bogged down in rendering. The challenge is to always make this stuff appealing. Whether its a pile of fish bones or a wooden chair Im always trying to find a way to give this stuff personality. Every element of the world should have as much personality as the characters.

More Marleybone

Scrooge concept and a few other pieces from Marleybone. The props were fun- trying to get as much personality in a piece of furniture or weapon as we do in a character.

Wizard101 Avalon

When we start a new zone in Wizard101 we will sometimes do "map" concepts that just indicate the general geography and color mood. these two are from Avalon. And a couple magic mushrooms too. You cant have a fantasy world without magic mushrooms.
