Thought I would update some of the progress on the old plant shaman I am working on. Was able to get some of the leaf alphas working today, and some of the base textures. Still a lot of texture work to go on this. I am happy with the way it is rolling along
Tonight I plan on setting up a basic rig for posing so I can get a couple of render tests done tomorrow as well as more work on the texture maps and unifying the color scheme. With his staff weapon he should end up around 6k tris when complete.

Been working on the old man lately. I've got the low-poly mesh all done along with the normal mapping. Did some tests with painting the diffuse in zbrush and baking them in maya today, and figured out my method for doing so. I am pretty excited to finally see this fellow all finished. Here is a quick zbrush render of the few minutes I was able to spend on his head this evening.

I decided that it might be fun to post more stuff from my sketch books. Happily I just filled another sketch book during the lecture of my American Politics class this morning. Here is what ended up on the last page. I also decided to break out the red colored pencils today!

Hello to anybody who might be visiting! Once again it has been a while since I have posted. I've been really busy working on 3d projects, my website, and homework for my non art related classes in preparation for my graduation in June (rapidly approaching!)
I thought I would post an art card I made this morning. I have been drawing a lot of people with plants growing out of them lately. My mind must still be a little bit stuck in the game that I helped make for my senior project. It involved plant zombies. He is colored with ink and prisma color markers and pencils.
