Pea Soup

Trish and I started a new blog for the folks at BLT named Primordial Soop. It's really cool, everyone should go check it out and participate in its bi-weekly sculptathons.

omg crunched

I got crunched the past few months, so I've been definitely AWOL from doing free-time stuffs. BUT I plan on making that particular habit end in the near future :D How's everyone doing, having a good day so far? I know I am.

Here's Beastman's face, from He-Man. Never finished it to the degree that I wanted to, because it was for a weekly challenge here at work, and I got caught up on other things on the friday I wanted to finish it on.

I'll post more stuff later this week, since I'm NOT CRUNCHING ANYMORE!!!!!!

Haven't been able to update this in a while. I'm pretty tired right now, but that's not what this post's gonna be about...

Didn't finish Dominance War this year, which sucks. I blame a slow concepting phase, how I couldn't find a subject that made me really happy, and ended up free modeling, which is a lot slower. Next year, if I finalize an idea faster, and start modeling to the concept, I should be able to get further. This is how far I made it in the amount of time provided. I still wanna finish the character, but I need some time before that.

I donno the next contest I'm going to enter, we'll see. But I really want to enter another one soon, I hope someone puts one up.

Dominance War Update!

So I've been working on the dominance war a lot these past few days. Lots of concepting and such, but none of the concepts really called out to me for this contest. After about a week of fruitlessly drawing, I thought that I wanted to do a frog thief, so I rolled with that. Right now, the plan is for him to have a long, dynamic, bestudded tongue, be dressed in leather and such, and use a water cloak to hide himself IN THE SHADOWS. So that's what I'm doing. After doing some shitty concepts for it that looked like Rennesance Kermit the Frog, I decided to take a different path, make him more quasimodo. Since then, I made a basic anatomy study with zbrush and the clay brush, which I'm ACTUALLY WILLING TO SHOW.

The back still needs some work, as far as where the legs meet up with the torso, but I like his anatomy because its full of contrast. His legs are huge/waist is small/arms are huge/but not them all. That's my poem, btw.

Now I'm retopologizing, which is awesome but somehow boring at the same time. Looks like this.

And that's where we are now. I'm sculpting his mouth so that I can open it, put in a huge tongue with a few studs in.

Dominance War Started

Well, the Dominance War started off to a bumpy start on Saturday night, and I've been busy when at home. Here's the thumbs I made last night. I'm planning on having a few more days of thumbnails, honing down to one idea, then develop that idea into a *gasp* full concept

No seriously, not dead

No, seriously, I'm still here. I'm sketching in my sketchbook, stuff that is wretched and terrifying. Trying to get ready for the Dominance War, where I'll have to concept or something. I have already broken my new year's resolution to model one model every month, but the sketchbook one is still going strong :D I'll just have to model more.

Openned up Modo again, and remembered why I love it so. Might have to work with that at work.

Uhhh, other than that, I'm thinking about another project which is awesomely awesome and involves my free time.

Ohkay, I'll update again soon!!
