The Walking Dead: Rick Grimes

Continuing with my tv/film tribute character studies, here's my take on Andrew Lincoln's portrayal of Rick Grimes.

"The Walking Dead" continues to be one of my favorite shows on television. The characters, the sets, the story are a wealth of inspiration and I couldn't help but want to  pay tribute to the shows main hero!

The Walking Dead: A TV Tribute

Back again tonight with a few new character paintings, this time based on another one of my favorite shows, AMC's The Walking Dead based on the graphic novel by Robert Kirkman! These two were a lot of fun, especially the part of delving into a different timeline and some more intense subject matter. Both Shane and the Mud Walker play crucial roles in the new season, so I thought it would be fun to start with those. More to come soon! Thanks for stopping by! :)

Portfolio Update!

I'm back today with a portfolio update featuring a small sample of work that I did for the game, Ravenskye City! The images above are of two maps that I painted and designed. The top map called "The Ravenskye Interior" also features choral designed by Jerry Tzeng! You can head over to brandonpikeportfolio.blogspot.com to see more!
