Frost Ronin

Epic Greek Stuff part 2

Here is a bit more about the previous cyclops concept.

Master Chief Helmet variations

Those were done for fun, before Halo 4 got out. (fan art.)
I always liked the design of the helmet and decided to make a few iterations, that could be worn by other Spartans.

Here is a take on what I think Gollum would look like if he kept the ring hidden in his cave for an extra 500 years.

Ariel as Pestilence

"Fairy tale as rider of apocalypse"

Here is Ariel as Pestilence. I had this whole idea where she would be riding an undead seahorse and all, but time only permitted me to go with this portrait. I will try to go back to it later, since my idea for her mount is very clear and I think could be great.

Spike-Bearded Alien

Getting back at concepting, trying to catch up for the last 3 weeks spent in sculpture-land.

Here is a portrait for an alien with a spiked beard.

Anatomytools.com workshop

I just came back from an intensive 3 weeks anatomy/sculpture workshop at AnatomyTools.com in Alameda, CA.
I had the best, most intensive learning experience of my career. Thanks to Andrew Cawrse and his fellow instructors as well as the ATC crew that worked non-stop to make this an unforgettable experience for the attendees.

I had the opportunity to meet a lot of amazing people and I am grateful to have crossed their path and shared these memorable weeks with them.

Thank you.

Here is a picture of myself in the middle of a session, drawing John, one of my favorite model here in Chicago. (Picture taken by David Jamieson for their website.)

Portait drawing - Laura

Here is a portrait drawing I did 2 weeks ago at the Vitruvian Fine Art Studio. This was done in one sitting with charcoal on white paper.

Alien Zombie Apocalypse

A few thumbnails I created this week. I tried to approach the topic on two sides; Earth zombie apocalypse infested by aliens and a zombie apocalypse on an alien planet.

Eye of the Beholder

Here is a 3d concept I worked on last week. The idea was to re-design the classic Beholder into something new and creepier.

New Blog!

Welcome to my new blog! I decided to transfer  my previous one here instead, Blogger being more suited to my needs.

I will keep this blog updated as much as possible, as well as conceptcombat.blogspot.com, a blog I have been running with an artist friend of mine, Lyle Moore. Check it out too!
