Hungry Dragon (D27)

dragon-hybrid-2test

This dragon looks hungry… Run Sir. Knight! Run!

I was only going to spend an hour painting today’s daily… I spent 3hours on it. I got stuck rendering the mouth (Mostly the top apparently), I have not rendered dragon’s mouth too much, it was a new challenge.  What do you think of this dragon? Does it look too generic or do you think it’s design is decent?

After 20 hours of work, here is the finished 3d model I made for my final 3D Printing project. The real life model came out beautifully. I thought it was already uploaded it to the blog, but strangely it wasn’t .

A commission I worked on for Cuddlebug . The character’s name is Shiloh, cool furry dragon wizard. I am very pleased this painting, It feels like all my training and practice as an artist is coming together to a more refined level.

Deathwing (Daily Artwork 2)

See the 3d model in real-time: https://skfb.ly/JAVN

Today’s daily is sculpt of Deathwing from World of Warcraft. One of his unique features is his metal mandible.I decided to look up the official concept art for the dragon and try my hand at sculpting his head. Some adjustments had be made after an hour in I discovered that there where some alterations to the official model and made adjustments to match. Some versions show him with more rivets on the lower mandible, some don’t. After a hour and a half, my PC crash and I lost about 15 minutes of work and decided to just upload my last save.

I might polish the bust and texture it in the future.  Time spend 1h 30m

Dragon Doodle No.3 (LibreOffice Draw)

dragon-sketch-no-3

Today I drew in an app made for graphs and diagrams, not art; and it was a very annoying experience. Every time I would draw a curve it would make it a bounding box, if I tried to draw another curve too close to the bounding box, it would move the existing curve instead of making a new one. I cant deselect the curve because it has no deselect short cut. It’s quite a pain

If you have an app you enjoy drawing with, feel free to recommend it. So far the main apps I use are Manga Studio 5 and Photoshop.

Dragon Doodle No. 2 (Sumopaint)

dragon_triad

I found this online painting app called “Sumo Paint”. I couldn’t get it work with my tablet unfortunately.
Sumopaint has a cool feature called ‘symmetry’, which allows you to draw repeatable patterns rather easily up to a hundred angles.  For this sketch I used three.

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:

Zekrom and Son v2.0

father-kissing-his-child-v2

After looking over the model I’ve decided to change some things. I removed the father’s hair and changed the son’s shirt to red. I plan on making a very short animation involving these two characters. The focus is the bond between a father and his son… and make it as cute as possible. It’s a tribute to my own dad. I will start on it.. after I finish the penguin animation, that is.
