Here's a drawing I did on Sunday. It was just something I was doodling; then I added a little bit here and a little bit there, creating, in my opinion, a scary lookin' dragon. I think I'll call it the "Scary Looking Dragon." Hmm. That took a lot of thought.

Anyways, please give me your thoughts on this sketch. Any: criticisms, praises, tips, just plain ol' thoughts...

In Christ,

A Review of My Work

This is a project I recently finished for fellow filmmaker Robert Fleming. Here's what he says:
"I would highly recommend Johnny to any and everyone! His flexibility during this project was a breath of fresh air! A very professional and quick storyboard artist!"
~Robert Fleming

Thanks, Robert! I hope that I can do the same and better for all those I work with in the future!

To God be the glory...

Storyboards - The Widow's Might

Here are a few boards I did for The Widow's Might.

King Garan

I drew this in ink on a cardboard box, then colored it with markers.

The design came mainly from my imagination. I started out with the idea of a heavily armored Viking. Most of the pieces of armor are probably impractical in reality, but they certainly look impressive! the sash was really just a way to get some bright color into the otherwise bland looking picture; the same goes for the beard.
Really, the drawing just came from sitting down and thinking about what I wanted to draw.
By the way, the drawing is only about 2 1/2 inches tall.

Here is a sample of my color storyboards.

I was working on a lego animation project when I got the inspiration to draw these. I didn't write anything for the dialog, but you could come up with something for the boards, right?

Hard-Core Sketching

This is what I would call an overdone pencil and pen sketch. It's quite abstract, don't you think? Does anybody have a suggestion for a name?

In Christ, Johnny

Concept Art

Here are some pictures!
The first is the "cleaned up" version of the second one. (I like the cape though).
The third one is some of the concept art for The Widow's Might.
