A Literal Dragon Warrior. I made this character in Blender. Back in the day when I had hopes and dreams of becoming a 3d modeler for a game developer. Those dreams have be all but been crushed at the moment.
A commission piece I worked on for Cal.
I’ve been working on this painting off and on for five months. It’s finished
It is inspired by an old Rembrandt portrait painting: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipe….._a_Fur_Cap.JPG
It was a painting I did for the ‘Magic Box’ a self guided digital painting workshop. I lost how much time I spent on this painting, I think around 20+ hours. It was very challenging but I learned so much from doing this project.
Daily Doodle for Wednesday. I tried my hand at a robot assassin but It didn’t turn out that well. I have decided that the daily doodle is not working for me. First I doodle on paper every day. Sometimes for hours. Frankly I’m just too lazy to scan and upload it here. so its redundant. As an artist I need to change focus if something is not working. So I am changing it into the 100 Character Challenge. I feel my humanoid character designs could use a shot in the arm. I discovered on DeviantArt there is literally thousands of stock images of people in costumes and in various poses that artist can use for reference. I will be using these as practice. Sometimes I will make a character similar to the stock image, other times I will use it to jump start my imagination. So I will give myself 1 to 2 hours a day to work on this. 2 days total for each character. In .. color or B&W. I’m optimistic this will help me with designing costumes and posing characters. I project this will take 6 months to complete. if this doesn’t work after a month, I will just find another daily practice routine like I did with the 21 Day Challenge.
More character ideas. I’ve been trying to give each character a little story so they are more interesting. This is a alligator merchandiser.
“There once was a gator merchandiser. He resets the shelves at local stores. He always got stuck with resetting the freezer sections of the store. One day he got stuck in a freezer and froze to death. The end”
Ok. So Maybe I exaggerated the freezing to death bit 🙂
