Boeing F4B4

I am really lucky to be able to work on such a wide variety of topics and subject matter at my job. On any given day, I might be working on a rendering a very famous parrot. Or I might be designing a candy dish or character coffee mug. I have worked on a hula girl with a grassy skirt and a flirtatious grin. I even got the chance to stretch my graphic design skills by working on various concepts for Indian Motorcycles. That was very cool.

Here, I had the chance to render the F4B4 fighter that was used in the climatic ending to the original King Kong movie. You would never think that this might come up in an M&M illustration. Yet, there it is...plane as day.

Elvgren Study

This is a study after the great pin up artist Gil Elvgren. I wanted to try an emulate his painting style using nothing but Photoshop. Getting a computer to approximate the richness of oil paint is a great exercise! Copying a master stretches the skill set. I didn't really do the original justice, but I did learn alot.
