Hello to everyone that has stumbled through the net and ended up here! I will upload new images from time to time to share with you guys! I cant wait to hear feedback from everyone. Being a professional artist working alone for weeks on end can get a little wierd, so this will be a great source of finding out if Im doing good or going goofy! Sit back relax, and take a stroll through the gallery. thanks for stopping by.

Here is a quick bio:

Brian Rood is a freelance illustrator working throughout the entertainment industry from his studio based near the Motor City. His work can be found on merchandise ranging from Star Wars toy packaging to limited edition fine art prints for the X-Men film franchise. Brian’s fine art prints have been sold in galleries throughout the world and featured on television programming such as The Home Shopping Network.

Brian has been painting both traditionally and digitally for the better part of the past 13 years. The pieces shown in this gallery are examples of his traditional artwork. He has established an impressive client list including Lucasfilm Ltd, Marvel Entertainment, Hasbro Toys, Paramount Pictures, Topps and Upperdeck trading cards, Harley Davidson, Ford Motor Company, EA games, Stern Pinball and dozens more. He successfully bridges the gap between fine art and commercial illustration to give each new project a very distinct and fresh look that helps to set it apart on the store shelves and gallery walls. To learn more about The Art of Brian Rood please check out his website at

Current Residence: Michigan
I will be making a few big announcements this year at the San Diego Comicon!  One involves large Robots that are in disguise, another involves a disfunctional family from a galaxy far... far... away, and yet one more about a personal project that is in the works!  Stay tuned or just stop by and visit at the show for more information!

I bought one of your Homecoming prints, the past weekend on CE 2 and I must say I LOVE it!

When I got back from Germany, first thing I did was, buy a frame and put it up on the wall in our living room.
It looks fantastic!

Hy!! I wanna say to you I think you´re simply brilliant. I like your artwork so much. My only critic is, if you don´t mind, sometimes the faces of some character are some static...I think they need more, how to say? or movement. Anyway, congratulations!!!
