Character 1 – Sabin Baska

character-01-sabin-baska

I’ve decided to do dailies again. My minimum goal is a month but I will be happy if I make it beyond that. My longest daily spree was three months two years ago. As for the characters some will be original characters in my head, others will be inspired by video game and book characters. I might interrupt it to do a couple landscape drawings/ paintings now and then.

Goals

1. Clean line work – It should be ready to color or paint if I decide to in the future. The line work must be clean enough to chop up if I want to use it in a cutout animation.

2. Interesting poses –  While quite a few characters will be just standing, it would be good to experiment and do more action poses as long as it doesn’t distract from the design or make it difficult to understand.

3. The character’s design must tell some sort of story, even if it is generic.

4. A background if it will improve the concept or if I have time..

ChipRom Walk Cycle

I took a break from my Penguin animation to animate my Zekrom Oc. I did a walk cycle for practice. It was my first walk cycle in Blender. It took more time then I thought it would .You can tell a lot about someone’s personality and mood in the way they walk.
Design wise I made ChipRom a ‘shiny’ yellow and changed the shirt to a orange color with white trim. I made this model from scratch using Blender and Sculptris. 7-10 hours of work so far.

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.

Katamari Damacy Comp Sketch (Daily Doodle 19, 20, 21)

The last three day of daily doodles. Each painting 30 minutes. I need to spend longer on these. One is a comp idea sketch of a video game called Katamari Damacy. I found it in a thrift store. This game is… strange. But strangely fun. What do you expect from Japan?

The story of this crazy video game is that the King of the Cosmos and his buddies get drunk and accidentally destroy all the stars in the sky. So he send his diminutive prince son to earth to pretend that he is a dung beetle, rolling a device called a katamari that makes objects, animals, and people get stuck to it (like a snowball effect),collecting and growing his giant ball of junk until the timer runs out. Then the king warps you back home with his rainbow breath (what my drawing is based off of), and takes the katamari FILLED WITH INNOCENT PEOPLE, and turns them into a star. Nice guy, that king…

The other doodles are not as nearly interesting so I wont talk about them.
