Something I worked on in my spare time today. Zbrush is known for it's great sculpting but today... I really wanted to play with texturing. Nothing too complicated just used some old scans of drawings where I used india ink and guache. It's a slow buildup but I really dug it.

My desktop background. I like it, seems familiar for some reason. Maybe because I took the photos whilst flying to vegas for NAB a few years back. I think I was at discreet/autodesk at the time. Anyway I'm doing some clean up and the image was lying around so thought I"d post it.

Here are some other things I found.
This one? Don't ask it's really weird methinks but all part of the process. In fact it's one of the things have tremendous appreciation for... The process. Results are important it's just the process isn't linear. It's a great place to be.
I didn't pay attention to anything but shapes that started from ink and guache. Scanned them and this is what I ended up with.

I don't recall much of the history of this except I started painting and came up with this.


Been working in 3d a lot and it seems any time I do that my posts are less frequent.
Maybe I'm a little more discerning? Details will soon follow. It's not quite finished (far from it actually) but it was nice to paint again today.

Something I did today. I guess you'd call it a moon base in the upper right corner. Motivated somewhat by a photo of the leftover grease from a turkey, and this:

Something else I was thinking about was a sort of city in a crater of the moon and how you might see it from a shuttle or some such thing. Still work both compositionally and concept wise but this is where I ended up.

Just finished this, err finished the ears so it's all in one piece. It's based off of my 3 year old daughter Mara.
