Painting of Rayquaza, the ‘Sky High’ Pokemon and poster ‘boy’ for the 3rd gen games. I spent a good 10 minutes drawing thumbnails, tiring to think of an interesting pose to put it in, I resorted to making it snake-like. One of my favorite designs in the game. Next week I will be taking a small break from painting Pokemon to draw some human video game heroes. If you know of a cool character designs that you think I should study, drop me a line.
More 3D fun 😀
I use Carrara for my 3d modeling needs but I have a issue with the toon shader that comes with it.. its horrible. So as a test I quickly set up a city scene in Sketchup using third party models. Posed my gator running in Cararra, went into Photoshop, combined the images, and created my own Toon shading effect using multiple filters. I also tried a FOV look to the render.
For the Alex and Cruz project,I’m actually going to make my own buildings from scratch using Sketchup . Since 3D warehouse’s TOS is as clear as mud, I’m too afraid to use any of the models available there for commercial purposes. I’m OK with using here since it’s just a simple test. Awhile back I made my own models as a ref for a oriental style cityscape I painted and it worked very well.
Tools Used: Carrara, Sketchup. Buildings from 3D Warehouse
Concept art. This scared little boy is facing his greatest fear… a giant chihuahua taco strawberry monster that sings the theme of ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ (I shutter just thinking about it:) ) I haven’t done any concept art of a child yet, so I thought I would give it a shot. It’s unfinished
Time spent 2-3 hours
Painted in Photoshop

I was out of town for work so I wasn’t able to draw portraits for two days. I started up again, and I feel rusty, I constantly had perspective issues and had to fix placement of the features a few times, had to repaint the eyes twice. I was so behind I didn’t even get to finish the ear or add hair. I need to find more refs of woman that I can use for my projects. I’ve used a 3d model for reference for this painting (I used her as a ref for portrait 6 as well) . I rather draw from life but can’t afford a model. I can’t just use Google Images because that would infringe on copyrights and I just don’t trust Morguefile.com. So if you know a good, cheep stock photo site, let me know. I might start asking friends if I could paint their faces, I guess.
