New Post!!!!! Whaaaat!!!

I really have no excuse for not posting more often...and for those you who are still out there who check in from time to time - THANK YOU and I appreciate it!

I promise to do better.

This is a  book cover I recently did for my friend and rising star in the literary art world Norlita Brown. This is either the third or fourth time for me working with her and I'm pretty proud and happy with this latest piece I did for her series. It was a nice change of pace to do some digital painting for a change, since most of what I do these days have been involving motion graphics and 3D. I did this in Painter and Photoshop, I kind of like working between the two because both programs have good things I like about 'em so I try to utilize both of their strengths through my workflow.

Hope you like...

Hey guys-
It's been awhile...but I just wanted to share this model that I recently built based off of Illustrator Guy Allen's 'Resurget Ceneribus' knight character from our Skidmore Studio poster from last June.

This was also for me a 'refresher' in the digital sculpting program Zbrush.  It's currently been upgraded with a whole lotta new cool it's my goal this year to master this excuses!

Stills from Alltel Endtag

This is about all I can show for this project...once the commercial airs I'll show the whole piece :-)

Doodle Home Art for motion graphic video

It's been quite awhile since my last post (again)...but I thought that this project I've been working on for Doodle Home warrants some attention and focus.  I'm pretty proud and happy of how this project turned out (I'll show the video in another post in the upcoming days) because it was a real collaborative effort within the studio.  Sometimes when you work on projects it's always good to get a fresh eye from  others to give you feedback.

Concert Trailer

Fresh Music Festival concert trailer from Skidmore Studio on Vimeo.

Hey all-
Here's a concert trailer I worked on for the Fresh Music Festival tour.  This is a tour that has some of the best known acts from the early to late '90's. Everyone still looks pretty damn good!

But never mind the fact that Guy is still minus one Teddy Riley...come on man.

I got to work in Adobe Premiere CS6 more exclusively with this project instead of Final Cut Pro (my usual) and I have to say I'm loving Premiere waaayyy more!  A lot of nice workflows between my other Adobe software (After Effects, Photoshop) definitely makes a huge difference. I was able to cut through a large amount of footage from these shows with no problem.

Doug E. Fresh Concert Video

This is just one of six full CG concert video intros that I made for one of the true pioneers of Hip Hop...Doug E. Fresh.  Much thanks to Ozone for really making this come to life.
