Still working on it.

I've decided to integrate a fireplace in the window, figured no one has ever done that and the ceiling will have a very intricate design which I will have to draw out then project into 3D in ZBrush. I have rough designs of the chairs now, and can really imagine the marble side tables. The statues are going to be the hardest parts and going to be a painful refresh for anatomy.

Demo Reel 2011 WIP

Here is some WIP shots of my demo reel that was suppose to be for 2011, might just end up calling it 2012 but we shall see... Its just a peek into the concept of the stuff I'm working on, car is like 75% done, 50% if you count the interior which I have to do for the full demo reel concept but for time sake I might just do the assets and forget my uber artsy fartsy concept.

As a bonus lets play, Guess That Car!

Having fun again...

So here I am doodling at a Starbucks once again. Recently I've been watching lots of comedians which makes me laugh and feel happy, so I thought how can I do that with Art and I think that drawing to make fun of people makes it really fun. I've also gone back to my stylized Illustrator (wanna-be) in me, its really enjoyable to play with lines in minimalist, meaningful strokes that force me to feel confident or stick to a line. So these days with so much less stress, having fun while drawing is bringing me back. As well as having a new Moleskin mini-sketchbook is making it very portable and convenient.

On a side note, I recently attended the Sherdian Animation Screening 2011 for this years graduating class and I saw some AMAZING films, truly. Some worth mentioning, if they are viewable elsewhere: Trick or Treat, Sonota (sp?), Red Button Day, and (one with a robot cat done in claymation [looked like it was almost impossible that one person could've done it]), there are many more to mention but I forgot the names of the films. If you ever get a chance to watch some of them I highly recommend it. Best of luck to everyone.

Armored Concepts

Getting back into the swing of things, hooked up the Wacom and started gathering the reference for continuing my projects. Went and found some Roman stuff, but might go through art books and scan more inspiration into a library of reference.

This sketch was just a little bit of what I drew, this was just for fun but may still be used. I posted this because its not really part of my "secret" designs. Once I choose a final look for this character I will post the thumbs and initial sketches, they might help someone else out.

I always found it a waste to see such good thumbs from major companies when they create games or movies that never make it to final. A great example is Gears of War, the first art book had such awesome concepts, although they would've changed the tone of the game, hence why they got scrapped but still inspirational.

I'm still getting accustomed to the tablet again, I honestly have not used it in a while and feel pretty ashamed of that but I have been inspired by new goals and new challenges online. I plan on following the Dominance War coming up, I may not officially join up but will try to keep up depending on my upcoming future schedule.

I will also be posting up life drawings that I have started going to every Thursday, so please look forward to that =)
