Yeah – I know. Have not been around in a while. To be fair I was experimenting with instagram. Shame it’s not widescreen instagram. The square get’s boring after a while. Still – it’s good to post on with quick snippets and rough screen caps. Speaking of new stuff here’s some concept sculpt renders. A few small touches in PS. Tried to have fun with simple complimentary forms to the main face. Simple colour choices also. Threw in some moody lighting. Next – some epic landscapes and I’ll be posting the first chunk of a little scifi adventure I have been working on. Lots more going on behind the scenes .
So -I’m experimenting with instagram.Why? well it seems good for rough thoughts and snippets of what I’m up to. Less formal and more scrappy than here. Snap shots of process in various programs etc. We’ll see how it goes – but for now it’s fun. I’m still keeping this blog going so that I can put the larger formats here since instagram is limited to squares so all of the work will still appear here. Also ( and this is well over due) I will be updating the gallery and putting works not posted into it in the near future.
Anyway – I finally put this guy into his collar last night after leaving on the hard drive for far to long. Had fun putting him into MODO and quickly bashing out a render. I might get a quick turntable done. Definitely going to get back to doing more of these. I also posted a rough capture of him in mod on instagram.
Lastly – still working on the comic strip so more on that soon also.
Here’s a few more for the weekend. You can see the super rough approach I took in getting the shapes out in zbrush. No attention paid to legs or the hands- something I would have to deal with later as you will see next week. The first is an option B of the first smile poster below. The second : fighter parked at sunset.
Ok , so where the hell have I been for the last while? Short answer – busy. I have been working on the personal project below and will have lots more on that SOON. Promise.
Until then this will have fill the gap. These are from a personal project which I designed to help me proof my personal pipeline in processing, composition and lighting using 3d and PS.
I tried to keep the shapes super simple, avoiding details that were unnecessary whilst sticking to a vibrant and emotional colour space. I’ll post some more on this soon as well as some simple process sheets.
Hope you enjoy.
