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..

Fallen Captain Hates Trees (D3)

For today’s daily I did a toon version of this enemy in the game Destiny because I’m too brain dead tonight to come up with something out of my head.

Dragon Astronaut (Space Dragon)

space-dragon-cover5

Artwork I did for my upcoming album ‘Space Dragon’. This will be the cover art. I might keep it painterly or refine it some more, haven’t decided. I was making a ‘space RPG’ but decided to cancel the project, however, 7 decent songs had already written. I was brainstorming what illustration to make for the album cover. An astronaut being attacked by a dragon t would of been interesting but then I thought ‘why not make a dragon astronaut?’  Artwork was painted in Artrage. What do you think of it?

Sketch of an alien thug that would work well in a toony video game. I was happy that I was able to exaggerate the shapes but still make him look coherent. The image was sketched in mypaint.

The Babysitter – Poster Version

Update: Replaced the dragon in the background with a knight. It makes more sense to me do do it that way. A role reversal.. However the original image is below

The completed Illustration. The dragon in the background was from another painting I done and was a place holder, but it looked so cool so I left it. Changed the illustration to a poser/book format, where text could be easily added (book/movie title, credits, etc). Made the dragon guardian old, and changed the eyes. as of now it is done. I cant think of anything else to do with it. Let me know what you think of it.  Painted in Photoshop.

Vector Character in a 3D world test

vector character and 3d model combonation test with illustrator and sketchup

Just making make sure this would actually work. I created my first set for my comic in 3d, the dragon’s work area. After I created the set, I experimented with rendering to see what way would be best and tried various toon shaders , flat shading, among other things. I found the best result and it matched with the vector character, as I want it to look as seamless as possible. I’m using techniques used more by animators then cartoonist for this project. I want the comic to look very clean and professional.
