Promotional artwork done for Reach Robotics.
You can see the art briefly in this promotional video:

Worked with these guys from the very early stages and I'm excited to see them actually create this product and get it developed.

Charnyx (Charizard and Onyx)

My entry for Jazza's Pokemon Challenge. Cutting it close to the deadline, but I'm happy with where it's at. I usually lurk on the challenges and love seeing other's work, but I felt this one was worth a shot. Combining Charizard and Onyx, into...Charnyx? Yeah, let's go with that. I really wanted to capture the "epicness" and utter heat you'd feel just being in it's presence.

I grew up on Pokemon and I still have a lot of the cards I wasted all my money on. Had a lot of fun with this challenge and it was great dipping back into that nostalgia for a while.
Here's a mid progress link posted to the forum:…

If I'm not mistaken, you attended PCA&D?

I saw your artwork at the college and was infatuated with it instantaneously.
I knew it looked familiar, haha, so I had to make sure you actually had a Deviantart

Yep! By the end of my time there I got really involved with the school and stepped up my "art game." lol. I wish I liked using DA more, but I mostly keep my work updated through my new site, ( or social media. Are you going to PCAD currently?

I'm not going there yet, but it is one of my current choices.
I am stuck between PCAD and Millersville honestly.
I'm still in highschool, but I'm graduating in may, so I need to check out good colleges.
In your opinion, do you think PCAD is a pretty good college for the aspiring digital artist?
I have intentions to lead my career down a digital media path
and I've seen their great digital media labs with the cintiqs and everything!

Well it's a pretty small art school. It doesn't have a huge campus or a bunch of students, but it can be good because you'll easily know everyone. When I went there the teachers where the beat part. They became my friends 'til this day. No art school will guarantee you an art career, it's not about the school it's about you. So if you think you can succeed even if you didn't go to school, then  having a good support system is always a benefit.
