woman-draped-10-25

Daily doodle for Saturday. Study of a stock photo by Marcus Ranum. Not my finest hour. Got to absorbed in the face and didn’t get the rest of the form roughed in as I should. drapery is tough. More human studies would do me good. 40 minutes

Vex Goblin Daily Doodle

destiny vex goblin artwork concept sketch practice doodle

More Destiny doodles. Although the game as a whole is somewhat disappointing, The art direction is top notch.  This robot is called a goblin. I honestly have no clue why Bungie named it this. It looks nothing like a goblin! This one eyed freak is annoying because to do a ‘head shot’ you shoot it in it’s white belly. If you shoot off it’s head it goes insane and remains ‘alive’. I need more robot practice. Time spent: 1 hour. Ref is from official Bungie promo 3d model renders

Dragon Profile (Daily Doodle)

dragon profile

Daily Doodle for Mon and Tues. I I haven’t drawn a dragon recently so I thought I would do one from my imagination. I usually do a new doodle every day but I couldn’t keep awake last night and  wanted to practice mark making, so I continued to mess around with it. 45 minutes to a hour

Vandal (Daily Doodle)

vandal-10-19-v2

Daily Doodle for Sunday. This is a Elite..er I mean this is a Vandal. One of the enemies in Destiny. Vandals are one of the most common enemies in the game. You shoot allot of them. You could mock him by calling him 4 eyes and he wouldn’t even be offended. I even shoot them in my dreams. This was good practice because I haven’t drawn futuristic armor before.  I will probably sketch the other enemy races in the future. Reference was official promotional shots for the game.

Soldier (TF2) -He will eat you.. (Daily Doodle/Painting/Whatever)

Painis Cupcake art tf2 i will eat you

Its been a year since I played Team Fortress 2, I kind of miss it but not enough to play it :P However I finally caved in and downloaded Steam Film Maker so see how it compares to After Effects. It’s easier than I thought it would be and has similar features to After Effects. Setting up objects and props is a bit awkward but that’s OK. I did a test video. I might upload it later.

This portrait is based on a in joke in the TF2 community. It’s from a silly YouTube gmod video. If you don’t get it, don’t worry. It’s really is not worth understanding :(

I didn’t make it to the blending and detail pass. oh well. My reference for this image was a stupid gmod video on youtube. 45 mins

I know if I want more exposure I need to do fan art of popular things. But when I do fan art I always fell like a sellout.

Alex lip-sync animation test

maugryph:

This is my first Lip Sync test I’ve ever done. Took me two hours to do 3 seconds of dialog. I have a new respect for animators.

Originally posted on Alex and Cruz:

This is my first attempt a lip-syncing a character to the dialog by manually keyframing and tweening. It took a couple hours to match the vocals to the mouth movement.  The voice is from a sample from The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.

Monster Failure (Daily Doodle)

monster-10-16

A monster doodle that I dilly dallied too long with. I didn’t get nearly as far as I hoped. because of this I didn’t get to work on the values, so it looks flat :( The design reminds me of something  that would fit in Shadow of the Colossus. I’m disappointed with it but feel I learned something so I’m happy.
