It's Time for a Hoedown!

I have been loving doing this concept art for the Big Squid game!

Why? you ask.

Because the west is just so awesome! Been doing research on the lives of outlaws and lawmen which has been very interesting. I've also been reading up about weapons from the civil war period. They had quite the range of technology in use at the time, gatling guns to single shot, muzzleloading pistols!

Anyway, this has been a blast!

Draw!... Dwarf...

Here is the latest piece of concept art for the Big Squid Studios game.

I have to say that this was truly fun. I love Dwarves, I love the Western setting, and I love comic book art. mmmmmmmmmm yeah.

So, anyway. I did this piece in a comic book style... duh. If you haven't noticed I've been experimenting a lot with different styles and techniques to find the one, or combination of styles that I like. So, enjoy the stylistic roller-coaster, and raise your arms on the drop.

Value Study Time

So, I need to up my art game. I've become far to dependent on line to hold a drawing together. No More I say! So, I've decided to start doing little value studies on a regular basis. I did this one last night while watching Support Your Local Sheriff with the Misses. The expression on the face tickles me every time. yep... still does.

Anyway, hope your enjoyment level is ≥ off the hizzy.

Alright everybody... here is another piece of concept art for Big Squid Studios' first game.
These have easily been the most fun pieces to do and I look forward to doing more of these field note sketches.
It's always fun to create something from scratch... creation of ideas in it's various forms is definitely my passion.

Jared Salmond Blog Swap!

Remember those good old fashion swap meets? Well, this is nothing like those... take it away Jared.

Hey Cameronites! 
Jared Salmond here, schoolmate of Mr Kendell. Cameron and I are both lovers of tmnt, tentacles, and cool stuff in general. Last semester in school Cam and I competed in one of Will Terry's classes to see who could garner more of Will's love. Cam won as usual. But someday I vow to be Will's favorite student. Or not. At least I got Will to tell me to 'suck it' in one of his videos . So anyway, Cam has the cahones to go out into the art world and show his talent with his new awesome projects! He told me I should throw out a design for an native american inspired elf, so here they are. The images on bottom are more of my exploration as I searched here and there for native americans on google. It was tough and my fingers still hurt! Make sure to check out my blog: for Cam's post on my blog!

oh yeah! Thanks Jared... These are truly fantastic. Your style is always enjoyable to behold.
Hopefully you have all enjoyed being graced by the artistic glory that is Jared Salmond. Make sure to go check his blog for more sweetness in the key of the above posted images. Oh, and as you may have guessed, this has something to do with the Big Squid Studios project.

Senior Esqueleto

yeah.... that kind of stuff is always weird. Oh, sorry, didn't see you reading there...

here is a quick, macabre reminder about Zombies Ate My Teacher. The Kickstarter project by Samuel Brigham Coates that I've singed up to do illustrations for. Time is almost up! He has already reached his goal but I thought I'd let you know that time is almost up to get your zombie likeness in the book!
