One of the best alien SiFi of all time. I saw this movie for the first time back in the early 80's, and still love it to this day. The top scene is the damaged android medical officer "Ash" being questioned by Ripley. It was a real challenge painting the milk substance on his face and to make it look like it's oozing out of his mouth. This second scene is where the captain is taken by surprise in the ships air ducks, made me jump out of my seat. Both were done on sketch paper then painted on PhotoShop. I learned allot from doing these two pieces. Hope you enjoy them.

Indian Half Breed

Done on sketch paper then touched up on Photoshop.
Billy Jack, not very many people would
remember this guy. His movie came out back in the 60's
but I had great time watching
when I was a kid. He was my hero back then,
and this is my tribute to him.

Beware the Moon

30 years ago the scariest werewolf was created for the movie "An

American Werewolf in London". I'm just in awe every time

I see this movie. See it if you get the chance, you won't be

disappointed. I did as sketch first, then painted on Photoshop.

F-5 Pilot

Did this drawing on sketch paper (top) back in my teen years, then decided to clean up and enhance on Photoshop as shown on the bottom image. I really got into Air Force illustration since my dad used to work for Northrop Grumman back in the late 70's to I think the mid 90's. My dad is an amaizing artist. Jaw dropping art. When and if I get a hold of some of his work I will post it.

For any Trekkies out there. I used to watch Star Trek with my brother back in the 80's every night before going to bed. It was the "logical" thing to do at the time.

Chris Farley

I had to do Chris Farley. He has such a defined face and he's one of
my favorate comedians. I exaggerated his face to match his personality. Done with pencil on Strathmore acid free paper. Can't remember just how long it took me, maybe a couple of lunch breaks.

but fun to paint.

The Three Amigos / "Jefe & El Guapo"
