Have a fish!

I decided that I better post something if I want to keep in the habit of posting. So, here are a couple of random fish. Nothing great, but I am experimenting with brush pens, and markers again. I will try to post more by next week as I get time.

Final Pass

Here's the final pass. Yet again, prismacolor on vellum. I was going to post it with a canvas texture and some tone to it, but decided to post it in it's original state so that it wouldn't hide the flaws. I realize there are many. But, as I am not a concept artist, oh well. Don't worry though, I will eventually improve.

Musculature Pass

Wasn't great, but I figured I would post it anyway. Here is the muscle pass on the creature I posted about last week. If it turns out tolerable, I will post the final drawing. If not, it will mysteriously disappear, and I will post other things. Once again, black prismacolor on vellum.

Creature Model

Alright, now onto the model. From the concept, I built the base mesh in Maya and unwrapped the UV's. I then did the texturing and detailing in ZBrush. I included an image of the texture and normal map that I exported out after the ZBrush process, but haven't felt a need to apply it to the maya model for any particular purpose yet. If you look back at the snail model I worked on, you can see how it could be applied back and then put into a game engine. I was just showing it for fun. Anyway, enjoy. I will try to post more, but we will see. I am still sporadic at this. However, I hope that at least someone will find this creature model interesting.

Creature Concept

Hello all. Told you I would post some modeling work. This is another creature I was working on. First off, I don't even pretend to be a concept artist. There are many that are much better and more skilled at it. However, I wanted to include the whole process. So, it starts as sketches, moves on to a few renditions(I know the facial muscles were screwed up, but I fixed them in the modeling process), finally I got a colored concept after going through a few ideas. Here is what I came up with.

Skeletal creature

Just thought I would post this to have something to post. It's just a creature I made for a class assignment. I will also be doing a musculature study of this, as well as a finished drawing. If they turn out decent, I will post them. If not, they will disappear, never to be seen again. This one was done with black prismacolor on vellum. I then took a photo of it and pulled it into photoshop. In photoshop, I just gave it a canvas texture, and added a brown overlay to make it look more interesting. Enjoy.

Finally getting close to the end of another semester in my MFA program. One of my classes was anatomy again. So, I have tons and tons of anatomy studies, figure drawings, master studies, and the like. Just for fun I thought I would post a few. Because Marcelo had spiced up one of his figure drawings by putting a parchment texture in the background, I figured I would do the same thing. It's nice. However, it still doesn't cover my poor drawing skills. I'll just have to work harder. But, I have a few 3D models that I may post as process pieces in the next couple of weeks. Also, I am going to try to post some more sketches. We'll see if I can keep up on my blog this time.
