The Art of Ryan Church

Many of you know of Ryan Church from his recent work on Star Trek which seems to be the bulk of the interests of the folks that come to the blog here, but Ryan’s work covers a broad range of organic as well as industrial designs. His skills and talents are incredibly displayed in his images created using primarily Painter and Photoshop.

I met Ryan about 10 years ago on an ILM animation project called “XO”. It had a brief but awesome run and some incredible art work was generated in the short time it was up and running. Everyone in the art department were still using pen and ink and other traditional media to render out their ideas and concepts. Ryan had a keen eye for the industrial side of things and was working on some pretty gnarly robot characters in the vane giant mechanical armor wrapped around soldier.  Mr. Church had some pretty awesome pencil skills that reminded me a lot of the tech version of (Crash McCreery) who is the king of graphite in the creature world!!! The show only lasted 9 more days after I got there and most of us went back to LA while Ryan stayed on to work on a possible CG version of Frankenstein. That one didn’t happen, but Star Wars did and somewhere along the way he lost his pencils and picked up a stylus and a new creative force was born. I am a big fan of so many of the illustrators and designers I work with and Ryan is one of my favorites. Hope you enjoy the sneak peak of some of his awesome work and be sure to visit his page regularly because there is always something new to see.!!!

Enjoy

 WOW it is a new Star Trek all around, Great to finally have a big beautiful kit/display model come out along with the release of the film,,, For the model collector who likes models of the Enterprise it usually is a long wait to get anything and even then end results are not that great…. the best models always come from the garage kit world and That must be where the boys at Quantum have their roots. Their site listed above really displays some awesome replicas and beautiful collectable pieces. I for one am very glad they got the Star Trek license because they now how to do a model right. I saw this piece on display and took about 80 pictures of it,, It was in a case during the day and the reflections were maddening but with a little photoshop they’ll be able to post. Ok be sure to visit the QMX page and see all the other goods they put out,,, If only I was rich!!!!!!
