Tekken X Haynes

I recently finished a new artwork commissioned by Namco Bandai for the release of the new Tekken Tag Tournament 2 game. I was one of a handful of artists that created new work for the project. The concept was simple: choose a character or two from the game, and illustrate. I chose the ogre-like Jinpachi Mishima enjoying a cup of tea after a tantrum, and added the diminutive Ling Xiaoyu to give his size some perspective. Figure drawing and comic art is not my strong suit, but this was such a cool project that I couldn’t resist it. I put some long hours into this one, and I’m very pleased with how it turned out. It was a good challenge, and it took me way out of my comfort zone. Check out the gallery here.

I was happy to hear that the Another Sunrise in Outer Space show was a success. My piece, entitled “Dawn Patrol”, sold early in the day, which made me very happy. There are still prints available here. This is the first in a series of new paintings to be shown in the future (when I’ve got enough to show). I’ve been putting this one off for a while, but progress is being made!
