Wolverine Part _?__

The past few days I have spent focused almost entirely on coding... but I have found some time here and there to work on FNAR. Here's another Wolverine WIP. More to come :)

Some more WIP...

Restructuring the lighting in this one. I like the way the light is functioning more (still need to finish bringing out the lights in the village), but I feel like this image is losing drawing quality... Maybe once I have the quality of light better together I will be able to fix the rendering quality as well...
Still working! Love how it's starting to come out... but still a lot to do (i.e. ignore the terrible arms right now.... and all the work in the upper chest/head that needs to be done...)

So much to do... so little time...

Still Working

Here's an update:

Village Preview

Still working on this one as well... but here's a preview of the concept I've been working on for the village scene at the end of the book.

took a break for an hr

and now I'm back:

- the chin is stronger/better... but I think I'm going to need to put the teeth in soon and fix the upper lip for it to start looking right

- started working on fixing up the neck and shoulders as well

I'm going to take a short break from modeling to work on some more concept art stuff, but when I come back the goal is to fix up the upper shoulders/neck and flesh out the hands and feet ASAP!

Another Wolverine Screenshot

oooo I already see spots around the eyes I want to fix... but these blog posts are a nice short break :)

Wolverine and Joker WIP

I guess I'm getting very comic oriented :-P

The Wolverine model is really starting to come along, and I believe really starting to look like Hugh Jackman. Here's a temp. screen grab... I'll post another shot in a few hours when I'm farther along. There's still a lot to do but now I'm officially getting excited!

I also worked on coloring the Joker pic quite a bit over the weekend. Don't have a screen grab of that yet, but will later when I post again, hopefully. (I don't think my computer can handle running Photoshop and Maya at the same time and I don't really want to stop modeling. :) )

'Till later...

...more renders

Been Working All Night

I've been working all night/day/night again to try and get my portfolio stuff together. I lit and rendered a few things from last year.... been working on the Joker... and fixing up/finishing other stuff. Uploading as I go :)

(Gotta work on 277 and ARTH logs too... so don't have time for Fling....)

Color Joker WIP

Another step along the way :)

Concept WIP

Forest Scene for Josh's Class... still working on it but I guess we can call it a speed-paint for now.


Some More Wolverine WIP shots


Work in Progress :)

and a little more...

These are some things I'm still working on:

A concept drawing for Penn's chapter of SIGGRAPH (still want to fix up the detail, the shading etc. and do a color version):

Concept art for Adv. Topics in Animation: Addie

Another, earlier concept possibility for Addie (this one is directly referenced from a piece by William Whitaker):

Continued from the previous batch :) :

and more...

Ok... I'm learning!

Apparently you can only post 5 images at a time... so here are some more! :)

Time for a New Start!

So - I had originally tried starting an art blog about 4 months ago, but never really got into it. I didn't love the layout, and never really got excited about it. Now I'm starting again!

I've been working my butt off this semester trying to catch up for being sick last semester. I haven't gone out, I've barely made time for my friends... I've just been trying to dedicate myself to schoolwork and catching up. I know that it's something I really needed to do in order to feel right with myself (and know that I had done everything I could possibly do)... but it's been a rough couple of months.

Anywho... here's some of my older stuff to catch up. I'll try and update regularly going forward with my new work.

Hope you enjoy!
