ARTWORK: Triceratops Skull WIP

An early look at a sculpt I am currently working on, I decided I wanted to do a bunch of skull studies and thought I would start with a Triceratops as they have a really interesting shape to their skull, which makes for a great silhouette and a good sculpting challenge.  Not sure how far I will take this, I might leave it as just an upper skull and mandible or I might separate it into the individual skull parts...we will see. 



ARTWORK: Environment WIP

Hi folks,

Here is a brief look at the environment from a personal project that I am working on from time to time during my spare time.  The image is character focussed but I wanted to create a very detailed background for it to create some visual interest and draw the viewers eye around.


Clearly this is still a WIP but I thought I would post it all the same.  It's quite a big project and there are some elements that I might remodel as I have become unhappy with them as I've continued to work on the image, but we will see.

Everything here has been modelled in Maya.

Will post more soon as and when I have it.

Cheers,

ARTWORK: Ryba Mangaso Creature Concept


Here is the final character sheet for the Creature Concept I have been working on, you can view the making of in earlier posts.

This was created in approximately 5 hours, from the initial design phase to the final turnaround render, it was completed entirely using Zbrush 4R6 with a bit of final tweaking in Photoshop.


DEMOREEL UPDATE

Updated my 2014 Demoreel with a few new pieces of work.

TUTORIAL: Creature Concept Process Part 2

Here is the second part to the process of my recent personal work of my creature concept.  Unfortunately due to one of the screen captures failing the final stages of the polypainting and the first steps of the posing of the character are missing from the video.

Overall this took around 5 hours to complete from the initial design sketch to the final turnaround.




Questions and comments always welcome.

TUTORIAL: Creature Concept Process Part 1

Hi there folks,

Recently I have been expanding my creature concept skills and I have been setting myself timed challenges to see where I can get to with a concept in both 2D and 3D.  For my first one I set myself a time limit of 6 hours and as a way of accurately timing it, I have been recording the progress, the first part of which you can view below, part one is a time-lapse of the first 3 hours. of work.



I've also included a still of the sculpt at it's current stage.






































As always, comments and questions are welcome.
