Maug the Rayquaza (Concept Art Character Sheet)

1423979491.maugryph_maug-rayquaza-ref-sheet-colored

I did this about a month ago. It’s a hybrid of my dragon character Alex and a Rayquaza, a legendary pokemon that does nothing but fly in the ozone and eat clouds all day. (I’m not joking)

It was originally going to be for a pokemon parody that I have shelved. In it’s place I made a cool animation starring Link from ‘The Legend of Zelda’

Now that I am caught up with my backlog I can start uploading new stuff again.

Chris the Dragon Character Sheet for Comics

After attempting to use my 3d characters for a comic strip, I found the look to be disappointing. It just doesn’t look good to put 3d art in a 2d medium and I just couldn’t get satisfactory results from the toon shaders in Carrara. It’s almost as strange looking as 2d characters in front of photos. So I have decide to use 3d as a reference tool for things such as perspective, buildings and complicated poses.

As for the actual Character Sketch I wanted to keep Chris consistent to the 3d model in proportions and looks. However the fins didn’t look well in 2d so I changed the fins to hair which strangely enough made him look like a eastern dragon.  I then gave him those silly whiskers eastern dragons have just for silliness. The rest is about the same. Next is Jed the Unicorn.

I will still be using the 3d characters for the animations. I just need to give Chris hair and whiskers, which shouldn’t be too hard.

Farley the Unicorn Finshed Model + Lighting test and Animation

Farley the unicorn is finally finished. I thought Farley’s face and coloring was making him resemble more of a rhino than a horse. So I remodeled the face to look like a horse. Recreated the tail and horn. changed fur color to gray and painted the textures onto him. I love the look of gray horses with the dark coloring around the muzzle so I included that in his design. Jed is much easier to creative expressions due to his mouth range being in front of the muzzle.

I can finally start ‘Dean and Jed’ (or ‘Jed and Dean’, I haven’t decided which sounds better) I’m keeping it at a two character cast for a while, later I will create a stock sheep character that I can morph into other sheep characters for extras in scenes. I start cranking out something on March 4.

But I have been putting my concept art training on the back burner so I will be working on that for a while. I still have 19 heads to draw *withers in fear*

Total time spent creating Jed: 25 hours.

Created in Carrara, Hexagon, and Daz Studio

The concept a woman character after seeing a Japanese model with a crazy outfit, I toned it down a bit, More of a practice to get back into drawing woman again. She would fit well in a graphic novel or a comic book. I did the shading very light for this purpose. Not the most exciting pose but I I decide to carry on with her, I will drawing doing more exciting poses.
