I have not done a post/painting in quite some time, so last night I got BIG cup of coffee and painted my heart out. Inspired by Flamenco dancers.
Random painting I made in photoshop. I’m working at becoming a good digital artist. Here’s my first little attempt. 🙂
This is another one of my characters that I’m creating for a modeling class. His name is Boulder, he will be accompanying my rabbit in my eventual animation.
Continuing with my progress on the Wreck it Ralph scene. A few things I have to finish up and tweak but so far, so good. This is more of a ‘sink or swim’ project, time to figure out things you were never taught.
This is what it takes to model your own character. Every character takes hundreds of four sided squares until they finally create a creature. Hours of work ahead.
Class Assignment : Recreate a 3D animated film scene
I chose Wreck-It-Ralph. (Awesome movie, if you haven’t seen it, go see it.) I’m going to rebuild the Niceland building. On the left you can see how far I’ve gotten in recreating it in a 3D rendering. This is between 4-6 hours of work modeling, remodeling, and shaping.
Things to do: Finish modeling, uv, texture, color, and light.
I really want to become an amazing digital painter. Great is not good enough. Here is my first digital sketch in quite some time. I am going to be better about posting more frequently. 2014 resolution? Maybe.
The original image was made using colored pencil for sketch lines and faber castell artist pens in brown. Second image was rendered in Adobe Illustrator using live trace. I posted it because I liked the way it looks. It does not do the original justice. I may have to work on this further.
I have been working on improving myself as an artist. The biggest of which is improving my attention to detail. I drew out the sketch of a bird that I had drawn before but with more attention to detail in an almost mechanical way. Please comment! I’d love to hear what everyone thinks.
So for those of you who know me, I am crazy about snow. The first time I ever saw snow, I actually spent 5 hours building an igloo with a family-friend. Needless to say…that was not
a good idea. I got a horrible 24 bug, but that is not the point. 😉
I currently live in Florida and we get a bit chilly sometimes (like 50 degrees haha), but we never get any snow. So I figured I would build myself a 3D snowman in Maya. I think he came out really cute for being mostly basic shapes and a little bit of maya-magic as I call it.
5 HRS LATER. Igloo is so small we are cramped inside. But I accomplished my goal of making an igloo. Mission accomplished. 😀
