Studio tour by diablo2003 Studio tour by diablo2003
WARNING: BIG FILE!!!!
I've had a few people ask about my studio on DA and Myspace so I thought I would submit a crudely put together 360 view as well as some explanation for what I have surrounding me on a daily basis. My wife was kind enough to give me the entire top floor of our house to use as my fortress of solitude. It's rarely this clean=)

A: The work station. This is where I keep in contact with the rest of the world as well as color my work. The Epson R1800 printer is my main source of printing off blueline layouts for final pencils.
B: If this was cribs i would say that this is where the magic happens. See the dark spots on the wooden draw surface? That's where my arms usually are .
C: My cumfy chair. It has a pretty deep ass imprint from hours and hours of sitting. I've even taken a cat nap or 2 in it during those long nights under deadline.
D: I'm a collector of movie prop replicas and keep my favorite one here. Included are Han's blaster, Serenity from Firefly, a handful of lightsabers, and Sweeney Todd's razor. Also have an autographed ball from the entire 2005 offensive line from the University of Georgia.
E: I'm a huge video game nut so I have my systems and peripherals all stored here. I wish I had more time to play. Anyone on Xbox 360 and wants to play Call of Duty or GTA with me, my game tag is old_scratch1138
F: Have a mentioned that I'm a huge Star Wars nut? This is just a handful of the hundreds of SW toys I have strewn around the studio.
G: My biggest vice is building, modifying and collecting 12" action figures. Mostly Star Wars but also includes stuff from Alien, Marvel, Hellboy, Capcom, Akira, and Lord of the Rings.
H:My ever expanding pile of old artwork, sketches and scrap material. I really have to figure out what to do with it all someday.
I: The Futon! I like to call it the nocturnal slumber station.
J: Shelf full of art books, sketchbooks, reference material, and graphic novels. Always good for inspiration when I'm in a slump.
K:Mellinium Falcon. My prize Star Wars possession. 3 feet long and modeled from the same molds used for the Falcon in the movie. Weighs about 30 lbs and lights up when plugged in. If there's ever a fire in my house this will be the first thing I grab after my wife and son=)
L: More figures( including some of my customs), statues, along with art books, DVDs, and video games.
M: Stacks of print paper, artwork and sketches that have no where else to go. I keep them here for easy access later in case I find that I need them.
N: What's this? Could is been a new art book coming out in a few weeks? Stay tuned=)

Well, that's it. As you can see, I'm a HUUUUUUGE geek but proud of my nerdom. And as I've always said, Nerd is the new black! If you have any questions, please feel free to ask and I'll try to answer.

Hope you dig!

If you are not sure what to do with some of these sketches, you could always have an auction and/or sale and donate the money and/or autograph pieces to a worthy cause; something new and in need of assistance like [link]

Glad to see I'm not the only one spending a small fortune on 1/6 scale figures. Damn you Hot Toys! lol They do prove to have more use than just being eye candy though. I use them for reference in figure drawing quite often. Great work space, must be very inspiring. What do you have displayed in your coffee table?

lol yeah you stole my GF's room! And all my weapons! HOT though, like she said Im glad someone else has their interest all over the place lol. I guess the 4 racks of swords in my living room topped with an original Conan Movie Poster hanging above them is my way of telling guest "you break you die"
Oh did you get the cabinet from Pier One? I saw one very similar in there the other day and started to get it but wasnt sure if I was being taken on the price or not....

Hey, man! I just put up some shots of my studio and someone mentioned that had as well. Not sure how these got past me. VERY cool studio! Im totally jealous of that square footage. And dude, if you look closely, its pretty bizarre how we have things laid out almost exactly. You even have the same coffee table, albeit in a different color. We need to set a play date! :)

What's really sick about your workspace is that there are so many figures and such to look at that it can be very helpful when trying to think up ideas and such when it comes down to "what should i draw?" hopefully ill have a workspace like that in the future :o
