I'm thinking of changing things up with my daily concept posts. I'd like to take a few of the previous rough drawings for my project, and turn them into more refined, full color concept art, and post one per week. Or maybe alternate between the two. 

57 deviants said I would prefer you alternate between one week of once a day sketches followed by one finished piece for the next week, and so on.
7 deviants said I would prefer only finished pieces, posted once a week.
4 deviants said I would prefer that you stick with the once a day rough sketches.
Hey all,

  Just thought I should let you know the first episode of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles that I did storyboards on just aired! Best of all, its currently up on Nickelodeon's website so you can watch it for free! I worked on the second half,(***SPOILER WARNING*** mainly the sequence where the turtles escape Shredder's lair and also the part where April, Casey and Donnie take on the worm in the sewer and it barfs on them). I worked on this episode about a year ago, so its exciting to finally have it come out. Anyway, here's a link to the show:… Hope you enjoy it!

I got my start drawing comics professionally in 2004 under the tutelage of Michael Turner at Aspen Comics. My first published work was pencilling Soulfire: Dying of the Light. Following this I worked on several series at Aspen, including Shrugged, Dellec, Executive Assistant: ORCHID and most recently Idolized. I also drew a single issue for Marvel, Deadpool Team-Up #890. Currently I reside in Burbank, CA and am employed as an in-house storyboard artist at Film Roman working on Marvel's Ultimate Spiderman cartoon. I love art, and bringing my vision to various creative ventures is my passion.

Your background sketches look completely digital, do you use a cintiq or just a normal drawing tablet?
I love your gallery, and it would be very interesting to see how you work. If you made a video process of a background, I'm pretty sure everybody following you would watch it :D

Thanks for the comment! I'll consider doing that...Never made a video before but I'll post a poll to see how many people are interested. The sketches are pretty simple and not all that much is really involved in the process, so I'm not sure if it would be all that informative, but if people want to see, maybe I'll do that :) Thanks!
