Ellia asked me to do some pages for her ABC book and I was totally flattered to be included on a fun project.
These are the first pieces of art I finished in 2008.
The Letter D: Watercolor and inks
The Letter M: Watercolor and inks
The Letter Q: Watercolor and inks
After finishing these three paintings for Greenbean, I couldn't wait until I actually did some work for myself. I think every artist understands the joy of creating something that you have total control of. Well a hobby of mine is gaming. I have been a gamer since about the age of 6 or 7. I have always been good at it and I loved the challenge of some of those old school games like contra, or ninja gaiden, even the original metal gear! It made perfect sense for me to mix my art, with another passion of mine: Video Games!
My love of games has carried over to wife as she plays Halo 3 more than me now... I just launched a beta version of my site. On my site I will dislay some of my work, but I hope to showcase artwork of gamers all over the world. It could be from anyone, any age and from any game.
Gamersdigart.com is the site. I will be having contest monthly (for now) that will give away a brand new game for a lucky artist. I hope the site can bring some gamers and artist together and have a good time.
The site is not just for guys as many women play games now a days, but ladies do tell your husbands/boyfriends if they have any interest in art and games to check it out.
I will be starting a blog soon to discuss being a father/gamer/artist and the challenges of juggling all three. And I just started a Flickr account as well: gamersdigart(I will be adding more images soon.)
Here is a sample: This a character from BIOSHOCK.

Please stop by my site Gamersdigart.com, my blog Gamersdigart.wordpress.com well as my Flickr . (All three are in early stages this moment but I am looking forward to feedback! I hope to have full color illustrations up soon, as well as works from other gamers who dig art and artist who dig games!
Thank you Greenbean for sharing your wonderful blog audience with me!
