Dragon Doodle in Blender 3d

Dragon-sketch-no1

Tonight I doodled this dragon out of my head in one of the most unlikely applications ever, Blender 3d; a program made for 3d modeling and animation, not 2d sketching.

Blender has this feature called ‘Grease Pencil’ that allows you to draw sketchy like ‘curves’ anywhere you like with your tablet, it will even stick to 3d objects. Note: This has nothing to do textures and UV (Although some use it for retopo)

To test the grease pencil,I set a block in front of the camera (set the camera to ‘ortho front’) and started drawing. This works way too good. I wouldn’t want to paint with this due to each color having to be on a separate layer but for sketching it is super.. er.. surprisingly effective.

Since grease pencil curves are in 3d, I could see many awesome uses for this tool, you can even ANIMATE with grease pencil curves and have at your disposal useful animation tools such as onion skinning.

For a free open source 3d app, blender continues to blow my mind.

I know I have 7 monsters remaining of my 30 monster project and its been a month since my last drawing. Homework and commissions take priority in my life. but after 30 monsters is finished, I will be doing a drawing project concerning dragons as I miss drawing them.

Also here is a screenshot of the sketch in blender:

Getting myself back into the monster painting project. Here is a painting/sketch of a gryphon.

I love gryphons, they are my second favorite monster, dragons being my first. I felt like painting one. I painted this using Manga Studio. Time Spent, a little over an hour and a half

My monster for Sunday. I could push this even more if I could keep my eyes open… I have the night owl curse,. I skipped doing monsters on Friday and Saturday.There just wasn’t enought time to paint due to the plans I had this weekend. Starting this week, I will work on a monster for two days instead of one. The first day will be research, prelims, and sketches (which will be uploaded). The second day will be the actual painting.

Combining 3D objects into a live action scene (Animation Project 4)

I’m a little behind so there will be a few postings today.

A challenging assignment where I put a 3d creature into a live scene using motion tracking. I designed a cute little spheroid monster to sit on a chair. Also I set a 3D cylinder on a coffee table and made it shatter. I used After Effects. It would have been easier to use Maya for everything but since this was an After Effects class I had to used the program required in my class.

A head of a dragon I doodled on the spot when I was eating at  Dunken Donuts. I have been practicing the use of complementary tones for the shadows of the picture. I noticed doing that breathes more life into my sketches.
