Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom

Here is a t-shirt design I designed for Sony Online to help promote the Playstation 3 and their new game "Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom."





It was great seeing how the project evolved to the final product. This was one of my first tshirt designs and hopefully I'll get a chance to do more someday. They gave these away to kids waiting in line to get the new Playstation 3. It always fills good to see someone have a product in their hand that you helped create!

Old Concepts, New Paintings

Here is a couple of new paintings i just did. They were done originally a couple of years ago and I dug them up from the grave and reworked them. I was trying to see how much I progressed since then. Anyway I enjoyed redoing them because I thought the idea was there already, but it could be improved alot more visually.
cheers,

Ben

Fun With Numbers

Here are some quick animations I did for a videogame trailer countdown show on www.GameNetTV.com, which should be debuting soon. The main theme is trailers so I put each number in the countdown into a quick situation that I came up with given the particular background trailer that I choose for them. I did these in premiere, I would have used flash but I just got really comfortable using Premiere. I hope you guys enjoy, I had a lot of fun creating them!:)

Hard 8 Vol. 2 (Coming soon)

Hello there, and welcome to my little blogspot. I have been procrastinating too long to put a blog together, so now that I am between jobs I have the opportunity to start one.

I finished this pinup a couple of months ago for my friends at Hard 8. The comic takes place in Las Vegas and the main characters name is Hard 8 who is an ex mobster who got his two index fingers chopped off and now he is out to seek revenge. Hard 8 is a compilation of different artist and its very fascinating to see different peoples rendition of the character and his adventures in Las Vegas!

They told me I could do anything I want so I came up with this idea of is that in poker there is different names for sets of cards (i.e suicide kings and etc.) So I put the main character in a very special poker game where the fate of the players lies in the cards literally. The direction I took was that my main character Hard 8, in a position where he has one of the deadliest hands he could possibly receive, Dead Man's Hand! These last moments of the game could mean life or death depending on his decision.




Thanks for stopping by, I will have some new animation coming soon so stay tooned!!!
