Robot Girl Failure + 100 Character Challenge

robot-concept-10-29

Daily Doodle for Wednesday. I tried my hand at a robot assassin but It didn’t turn out that well. I have decided that the daily doodle is not working for me. First I doodle on paper every day. Sometimes for hours. Frankly I’m just too lazy to scan and upload it here. so its redundant. As an artist I need to change focus if something is not working. So I am changing it into the 100 Character Challenge. I feel my humanoid character designs could use a shot in the arm. I discovered on DeviantArt there is literally thousands of stock images of people in costumes and in various poses that artist can use for reference. I will be using these as practice. Sometimes I will make a character similar to the stock image, other times I will use it to jump start my imagination. So I will give myself 1 to 2 hours a day to work on this. 2 days total for each character. In .. color or B&W. I’m optimistic this will help me with designing costumes and posing characters. I project this will take 6 months to complete. if this doesn’t work after a month, I will just find another daily practice routine like I did with the 21 Day Challenge.

Draped Woman Sitting Study (Daily Doodle)

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)

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 😛 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

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.

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.
