While the job hunt continues, I've been keeping busy with some personal projects. I decided to do something a little more traditional this time. I have some great photo reference of some knights so I thought it was about time I put them to good use. As usual I've included the steps of my work process.
On another note, Nihilistic/Konami's "Zombie Apocalypse" was recently announced. I'm very proud to say that this is the first official title that I've worked on. I had a great time working on the game and learned a tremendous amount. The game looks great and I cant wait to play it.

I've been away for a while but it's for good reason! I recently did this movie poster illustration for an indie film a friend just completed making. He wrote, produced and directed the film! So when he asked me to do an illustration for his movie, I was very excited and honored. Luckily I was working with someone who knew exactly what he wanted, which made my job much easier. We're both very pleased with the final poster and after seeing so many stills from the film shoot, I can't wait for the films viewing!
On another note, I recently took down my other blog which was serving as my portfolio. But now ahedkhatib.com is up! So be sure to drop by and have a look around! :D

I wanted to do something romantic, so I turned to fairy tales. Rapunzel seemed like a good tale to illustrate because no movie studios have yet to make a big budget animated movie about it (though in doing reference research I discovered that Disney has a Rapunzel movie in the works). I referenced artists like Thomas Cole and Thomas Doughty which really helped me direct the mood and color palette. I used both Painter and Photoshop do to this.
