General thumbnails

A few quick little thumbnail sketches to get me started on my model. I probably should do more of these but I am eager to get started as there is only a little less than a week left in the competition. I am leaning towards #1... or 2 or 7. What do you think?

Speed Sculpt

Once again it is time for the Dominance War. They are having a mini challenge this year before the main event. The theme is "War General Portraits" I just found out about it this morning. Tomorrow I plan on working on the concept for my 3D General's portrait.

With this and the epic portion of the Dominance war fast approaching there should be many frequent blog posts to come.

To warm up today I made a speed sculpt using one of the three required base meshes for the competition. This is not the direction I plan on going with the challenge, just a mindless sculpt to get myself ready for it.

Goofy Face

A digital sketch today made for fun. Started from a Bic pen doodle that was in the margin of some paper sitting on my art desk. I'm posting it in an effort to keep things fresh on the blog.

Cowboy Western

Yesterday was a fun day. A good friend of mine is taking a film class through the city and one of his class assignments was to shoot a television show for cable access. He decided that it would be fun to film a cooking program starring my wife (he is a big fan of her baked sweets, as am I) So they came over with all of their video equipment and we spent the day shooting a cooking show. It was a blast!

During the shoot I busted out the pencils and markers and made this art card.

Palin redo

Something old again. I spent a couple hours this evening giving my Sarah Palin portrait a bit of a face lift. I'm feeling some improvement since the original painting of her during the November election. Of course I could do more to it, but the election is long over and it is time to move on to other things. Happy Friday everyone!

What about McCain?

Wasn't sure if I wanted to re-post this, but I made a few minor changes to him after receiving some good critiques on the old one. Mainly I added flesh tones and shading color to the face in an effort to make him less muddy and to add some life to him. I am going to call him finished for now and move on to other things.

Zombie tastic

Okay time to resurrect the incredibly short lived Friday promise. And what better way to do so than with the undead? Pen and Ink zombie art card.
