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.
I had the opportunity to work with YETi CGI, Mattel, and National Geographic to create five dinosaurs for the View-Master Dinosaur Experience Pack. These were a lot of fun to build! Take a look at my portfolio for more in depth breakdowns of these characters. Enjoy!
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)
This is the first summer in my memory that I don't have summer classes or school looming distantly in the fall. It's odd and glorious. The last couple months have been more than a little hectic... not that it's bad, but I do hope that the summer will calm down a bit and let me catch my breath so I can make more art. I've had several weeks (on and off) of crazy overtime hours. My car freaked out and start overheating every time I went more than about 1/2 a mile (which I tend do when using my car). After the repair I decided it was time to buckle down and upgrade vehicles. After about 2 weeks of nightly researching and scouring the internet I finally tracked down a good deal on a lightly used 2012 Ford Fiesta, which I have since purchased. I also moved into a new apartment, which is amazing. Though, moving 3 room-mates worth of furniture into a new house was exhausting to do in a single day. Like I said, it has been a hectic last couple months.
All that aside, I've managed to develop the concept for the frontier pilot character I'm working on a bit further. It's still a work in progress, but it's getting there... Providing life calms down a bit, I'm hoping to get a couple nice pieces of art for my portfolio this summer, so stay tuned for new stuff!
Hey guys, I put together this collage of sketches that I've done in the past week or so for a new character I'm designing. I'll be doing a legit concept this weekend, hopefully. I've just been exploring some ideas while using my brainstorming as drawing practice. (Please pardon the fact I photographed these, I don't have a scanner handy at the moment.)
Now that things are winding down for the holidays I'm starting to kick around some ideas for a new character project. Here are a couple few thumbnails I've done to feel out the design. Next steps, finalize character, lock down the look of the outfit, then paint up a hero shot concept. Then I will be jumping into 3D sometime around the New Year!
