God of War Ascension Concepts

About two and a half years ago I started working on a new God of War game with my friends and former professors. I never thought I would get to work with such good friends so soon out of school, together a lot of blood and sweat was pored into this game and I could not be more proud of the end result. Here are a few of the concepts I did for the game; If you would like to see more of my art or the art of my friends swing over to amazon and pick up the book. Its a monster coming in at almost 400 gold tipped pages... because over at Sony Santa Monica were all about being subtle! The book was also crafted by the amazing Section Studios led by Cecil Kim, the man who helped create God of War from the very start.

I'm Still Alive!

Its been a while since I have painted for myself, I forgot how relaxing it is to have no expectations. Thank my friend Andrew for per-pressuring me into it!

inspired by M83
and this poem:
And in the element of light
The sun reflected from the waves
Inshore it spangles
The child of air is borne upon the wind that blows across the sea
And in the element of summer
The cliffs suspended in the heat
The air in columns...

I wish I knew who wrote this.

While I am at it here is a randome collection of things that never made it... one day they will never be finished!


First attempt at digital plain air painting, all in the field.
Red Engine gallery show submission.
Photo and painting demo from my class at Red Engine

Thanks for looking, hopefully I will update again soon.
