I'm making an Imperial recruitment video, and here are some models I made for it (including a running cycle). The head on the navy officer and navy trooper were taken from a tutorial that came with 3ds Max, but the rest is all me.

The results are in for the Death Troopers trailer contest, and with 5% of the votes I got second place! Granted, the winner had 89% of the votes (and rightfully so, their video was amazing), it's pretty damn awesome to do so well in a national contest like this.
And just for good measure, here's my video again:

So for some reason my Death Troopers trailer wasn't included in the finalists for the trailer contest the first time around. Now they included me after all!!
SO GO VOTE!!

I made this video for a contest in which you make a trailer for DEATH TROOPERS, the upcoming Star Wars horror novel.

So thanks to this io9.com article, my stuff has gotten a TON of exposure. I received an email a couple days ago from a guy saying that he was a fan of my stencil designs, and had made some t-shirt screen prints using my design. He even sent me a couple pics, check 'em out!
I also got a mention on Club Jade another sci-fi blog.
Also also, I've got a Snowtrooper saint print coming very soon.

My Imperial Saints are featured quite prominently on this article on io9.com. I gotta say it's pretty satisfying to see my stuff featured so widely. Don't forget to check out the rest of my work on my website www.patrickkingart.com!!
Also they're available as 11x14 prints, framed, for $50.

I came up with an idea for a new series, called "Imperial Saints," depicting various types of Imperial Troops as saint icons, this being the first:
Saint SK-387, martyred in service to the Galactic Empire while serving aboard the first Death Star.

I've recently gotten into screen printing after finding a tutorial online and seeing how easy it is, and here's my first t-shirt:
Familiar image I know, but it's my favorite, and it came out quite nicely on the shirt. It works especially well as a circle rather than as a square.

...can go away.
They haven't gotten me one damn job lead despite applying for over a hundred jobs over the course of the last year and a half plus. The real kicker was this email that I received yesterday afternoon:
The Web Designer position you applied for with CyberCoders on 9/15/2008 has been closed. If it re-opens and you are a fit, we will be in touch!
In the meantime, we have thousands of open positions on our site which you may search through to find a match!
I just now receive a notice that a job opening that I applied for NINE MONTHS AGO is closed.
Thanks for nothing, job sites.

I started a contract job doing Flash design/programming yesterday! It's incredibly satisfying and fulfilling to work on a job that actually requires my skills and provides a challenge, as opposed to my job at Starbucks making lattes and Frappuccinos for/with a bunch of idiots. Alas, this job only runs until the end of June, so I won't be able to quit the latter anytime soon. Which is especially difficult because after working on Flash stuff, going to work at Starbucks feels like a demotion. Still, it's real-world experience, and it'll look good on a resume.

Still on my classic Star Wars kick...
I'm thinking about making an Imperial recruitment video set to the Imperial March with lots of stormtroopers, AT-ATs, TIE fighters, star destroyers, etc...

I had been seriously dragging on this one, but it's finally done. I thought it would be fun/appropriate to have my Engineer poster in the style of the 1950s-era Texas postcards (Here's an example), considering he's a good ol' boy Texan.

I found out a couple days ago that my longtime comics shop, Funny Papers, will be closing down. The store had been struggling for a few months now, what with the massive economic downturn and people spending less (I know I wasn't able to buy comics in January and February), and it's sad to see it go. I've been going there since I got into comics in 2004, and have (with one exception) always had a great rapport with the management and staff there, plus in the last year or so they really helped promote and sell my artwork. The current manager did tell me that they're going to try to re-open a new location somewhere in south Austin. Hopefully they'll get more business there than they had in Dobie Mall, which was rapidly turning into a ghost town.
So I suppose in closing, thanks for everything Funny Papers.

After being totally impressed with myself with the Excalibur (and getting some great responses to it as well) I thought it'd be fun to develop more ships along the same lines.
So, I bring you the Kusanagi medium attack cruiser:
and the Excalibur for comparison:
The way I see it, the Excalibur is the bulky, heavy carrier, the Kusanagi is the smaller, sleeker attack ship, and the forthcoming Damascus will be a small, fast-attack destroyer.

After nearly 48 hours of rendering, I've created a minute long looping video of a really detailed star cruiser, which I called the Excalibur. I don't have the video down to streaming size yet, but in the meantime enjoy these screenshots!
It's got a bit of Galactica and a bit of Imperial Star Destroyer combined with a basic design I've had since I was a kid.

I had a crap day at work today, so I thought it'd be fun to draw myself as a Red Lantern (that is, a foe of the Green Lanterns driven by rage and hate), complete with Starbucks apron and everything.

I decided to start making posters based on the different classes from Team Fortress 2, with each one done in a style unique to the character. So naturally, I did a Soviet style poster for the Heavy:
