Alrighty, i've finally caved in.

As a lot of you know ive had this hangup about posting WIP's and concept pieces.

Hang-up as in I dont want to post them, heh!

Personally id rather not see someones process; I think it ruins the magic and mystery. I like to look at someones art and ask "how the hell does he or she do that?", and then struggle to figure it out for myself.

In that struggle great things can sometimes happen, if you allow yourself to be frustrated.

But enough of my soapbox sermoning!

Im extremely fortunate to have others interested in what I do and I frequently get asked about my process. So ive gone ahead and slapped together this "doodlebomb", so you can get some ideas about what goes on behind the scenes.
Most of these will more than likely never be completed because there wasnt enough of a story for me to stay interested, or were simply practices and brainstorms.

Ive numbered them in case anyone wanted to know about a specific title. I also numbered them so people can vote on which is thier favorite, if one is a clear winner ill finish it.

Please keep in mind that these are all works in progress, in a lot of cases anatomy and backgrounds havent been finalized, so theres probably a ton of mistakes.
Most of these took me about 3 hours to do, the bulk of my work takes place after the sketch.

Thanks so much for all the great comments and interest, it really means a lot to me.
All the best to you all.

I wish I had more opportunity to be generous; my time is floored lately as soon as my feet hit the ground.

I just noticed, #3 looks strikingly similar to Dimentio from Rich Corben's Mutant World?

I can definitely tell that he's influenced you most. I've probably compared you to Corben at least 10 times in other comments I've made. :P
