Video Demosssh

Three 30 minute Video Demonstrations:
Nothing fancy, just a few quick black and white sketches. Wanted to show the process and a few different techniques to some friends.

I've got full resolution video's hosted if you'd like, just give me a shout.

Here are some Sumi Ink, White Acrylic and Digital experiments.
Just quick stuff, but loads of fun:


  1. Those three new colored landscapes are fantastic Tom. I think these are the best I've seen from you yet. They ooze with life. Big step brother.

  2. The latest stuff with ink and digital is great, Tom. Keep explorate this, it seems so promising ! ^^
    Cheers, amigo !

  3. Thanks for the vids. Very nice work-flow break down.

  4. Nice Tom! You have incredible control...Nice composition!

    How's it going? Haven't seen you forever!

  5. Dude this stuff is so unreal. Maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan. WOO! Good inspiration at work!

  6. Wow!!.. tutorials to learn!!.. thanks a lot!!..

    Shout!3 I think..

  7. "Those three new colored landscapes are fantastic Tom. "

    These really stood out to me too. That middle one is all sorts of awesome. Hold on to that one- Might want to work that up one day.

    Gotta check these vids out...*leans back in chair, cracks a beer---looks down and realizes it's really a can of V8....low sodium*
    (i'm old now)

  9. way sweet stuff man! keep it up, and thaks for showing your proccess

  10. Sorry Tom, I had a laugh at Scott's beer turning into a bottle of low sodium v8. hahaha. priceless.

    still love the work mate!

    I lost MS messenger when I upgraded to a new computer. I'll have to download it again. :O

  11. Thanks for the sharing the videos. It looks like the mentoring is truly on it's way with Idiot Apathy as the captain.

    I agree with Scott about the environments. They're fantastic, but the middle one has a special feel; it reminds me of Blizzard's Diablo franchise.

    And I don't know how you can drink a can of V8 Scott. That is an impressive feat, all by itself.

  12. I'm taking wagers on just how long before Tom strikes a film deal with Gnomon. Anyone? Anyone?

  13. i love the demos...very inspiring.
