3D Character

Here's the video of a character I did for class, Sculptural Texturing. First we had to draw a concept, and then model it in 3D in maya, and finally add detail in ZBrush. Did the textures on Photoshop and ZBrush, and the video with AfterEffects.

I'm pretty happy with the concept, but the end character is a bit... lifeless. I don't know how to rig though, so no pose.

I don't know if I'll be using any of these programs again (except photoshop). I'm done with the classes involving maya and zbrush, and it sure is a nice knowledge to have in the future. I enjoy plain old school drawing more though.

more studies and doggy sketches

Don't have much new, so I resort to post some old sketches.

I haven't been doing much studies lately, I started drawing for the webcomic Loaded Dice:

Two pages a week is a tight schedule for me, and I'm bad at inking and many other things in there, but I only know of one way to get better, so I'm trying.

It's finals too. I'm tired, overworked, and I can't wait for the break.

Peruvian llama

My sister is currently living in Peru, the llama country. So when the opportunity came in class to illustrate a man/animal, well... this kind of came to me.

It's a refined sketch on which my next painting will be based. It'll be done imitating CF Payne's technique, which uses colored pencils, acrylics, watercolor, oils... and some other things.

We'll see how this turns out.

A little break from homework =)
I'm trying something new. I tend to do a lot of realistic work (or try to) and I'm trying to do something more stylized. Not very successful I think... Only way to improve is to keep trying though.

Blog design

My blog finally got prettyfied =D
I finally pressed on the button 'design' and arranged it in a way I like. And I added a banner.

And I'll add a study to this post so it's not completly useless. This one is from yesterday, with reference (always... I just can't draw good environments from imagination yet)

I've been doing a lot of studies from photographs lately. I'm bad at environments, and I hope to get better. Thought I'd share some of them.

City on fire

Started this some days ago, but I ended up not liking it at all anymore. So it will just stay in this unfinished state. I decided to post it here so it isn't a complete waste.

figure/skin study

It's been some time already since my last post. But I won't let this die.
So, here's a new study.

I think I'll be doing those much more often. They're relaxing and I hope I'll be learning out of it.

General Step by Step

I put this step by step together for a friend of mine and thought I might as well share for whoever comes by here. It's a drawing I did about six months ago (time goes by so fast...) but the method seems worth sharing to me. I hope you enjoy.

Haven't updated in a while, but I don't feel like letting this place die yet. I may post some more WIPs soon.

More work for class.The number of self-portraits that I've been doing in art school keeps growing, but I guess it's an easy way to draw a human figure without having to look for someone willing to let you draw them.
The one on the left is done in india ink, and the one on the right with black and white colored pencils. I'm unhappy with the ink one, but the pencil one is not too bad. I might try the pencil technique again.

I got commissioned to draw a dragon. It makes me really happy =)

Portrait 02

More portrait training =) Kind of a monochromatic palette on this one. With a reference again.

Portrait practice

I'm practicing portraits, as I tend to be very bad at drawing the face. They always end up looking ugly.

As you can see, I love to play with unrealistic colors. I used a photo-reference for this one, although I wasn't trying to make it look the same: (I can't seem to make the link work)

Exquisite Corpse

A drawing that's one year old. It was an interesting concept, we were actually two to work on this. The other person did the upper part, leaving only 1 inch visible and I did the rest with the little I saw, without knowing what he had drawn.
I think the result was really successful on this one. I just got the drawing back from the teacher, which is why I'm showing it.

First Post

Hello =)

I've decided to create a blog where I'll put all my sketches and works in progress that I wouldn't post elsewhere. As you see, this will mainly be a blog about artwork and such. I'll also be posting some finished / half finished works.
I tend to be bad with keeping up with blogs and such as I never have anything from my mind to share, but if it's mainly drawings and pictures I should be able to. Hopefully I won't abandon this blog project anytime soon.

And I can only start a sketch blog with sketches, so here are some drawings from life drawings sessions. I love doing those and try to go every week. Those are 2mn drawings.
