Heartbroken to hear of Anthony's passing. I only became aware of him in the last couple years, but he quickly became a big inspiration to me. I admired his authentic spirit, his passion for connecting people and cultures through food, his storytelling, and how he was a voice for the unheard. RIP.
Here's a collection of some of my daily sketches from Feb 2017.
Kicking off 2017, I'm happy to say that I've completed my daily drawing goal for January! Here is a good sized sample of my sketches.
Freelance projects are starting to ramp up (which is great, because I've been slow for several months) but I'm going to keep carving out sketch time in Feburary.
I created this piece to experiment with making a stylized character, and had a lot of fun doing it. My goal was to translate the classic Wonder Woman comic style look into 3D.
One of my goals for 2017 is to be sketching every day. I started in trying to build the habit in December! Here are some of my results.
2016 has been a challenging year for me in many ways, but especially as a freelancer and job-hunting. However, I’ve been pushed to grow a lot as a person and an artist and I think I’m stronger/wiser for it. Thank you all for your support!
I’m excited for 2017 - to create new artwork, to become less afraid of failure and be willing to learn from it, for new opportunities, and to meet more friends who are passionate about art!
I hope you all have a great new year!
Hey all, check out the final presentation and breakdown I've put together of the Elk Ranger! Rendered in with Marmoset Toolbar 2.
This character had the longest development time of any personal project I've worked on, but I learned SO MUCH doing it. (And I got engaged... then married during that time as well)
Hey all, I've finally gone and composited the screen recordings I've captured so far of my creation process for my elk ranger character. I've broken it into three 16ish minute videos and plan to continue to add further chapters as I make progress. After a crazy busy last couple months I'm scheduling a lot more time to work on personal projects again, so expect more cool things soon!
It sure is good to be on this side of winter! Being able to go running in shorts and a tee-shirt is absurdly wonderful. (We got a total of nearly 8.5 feet of snow where I live this year!) All that to say I'm excited to spend some time outdoors and for the personal projects I have planned for this summer. I'm not quite ready to share what they are yet, but check back soon for more updates!
Also, to fill the gap of the much missed CGHUB I've gone ahead and jumped on the Art Station bandwagon. Check out my art stuffs here.
I've been working on this sculpt of Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock on and off for the last couple weeks in my free-time. Enjoy!
For those of you who are interested, here is the time-lapse of my process.
