GUITARWOLF

Finally got around to sorting my values proper and cleaning this guy up. I say "guy" because this is actually the standard player and his BEATMODE form, GUITARWOLF. ALL CAPS !

I haven't really explained too much about this project. It's called Beatmode and the quickest way to describe it a mashup of three things:

1) Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure
2) Altered Beast
3) Daft Punk

Makes sense, right? RIGHT.

Quickies


Back from a crazy trip around Spain and ready to dig in on some new project stuff!

I've been doing a few of these lately. Process is really straight-forward. I just do a quick line drawing to get perspective down, then grab a couple photos and distort them so the shapes are arranged in a manner that I can use the textures as "paint strokes." Use the clone tool and an assortment of crunchy, expressionistic brushes to lay in loads of texture and imply shapes. Finish it off with lots of selection tool + gradient or a big fuzzy round brush to imply light sources and such.

Spit ballin'

The Daily Spitpaint is a group on Facebook dedicated to creating 30 minute speed paintings which adhere to a preset theme. I've jumped on board and used the themes to experiment with style and push my boundaries.

It's always fun, and often with a side of brutal failure :P

New Project!

Working on some new stuff ;]

Quick one for a friend. Only had a few hours on it, but I'm pretty happy with the results. Trying to break out of my established block-ins and loosen up the posing and brush marks a bit.

STUFF.. and.. THINGS

Snapshots from various projects I've been working on in my 15 minute durations of spare time. All Photoshop CS6, save for the Yeti thing, which is ZBrush and CS6.

Goblin Huggle

After years of legitimate reasons, months of excuses and weeks of wrist-flailing, I've finally started learning ZBrush. I know enough little tricks to make it seem like I have half an idea of what I'm doing, so I threw together this little concept:



And started modeling him up, piece by piece, on my lunch breaks at the studio :P



This is actually part of a much larger project, which will be slowly revealed over the next few months. New project! :D
