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.

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.

Cheers,

Artwork: Chestburster & Blacksad WIP


Hi there folks, I just wanted to post up some WIP artwork, first up is the Chestburster from Alien (1979) and second is a quick polypainted version of my old Blacksad speed sculpt.  I want to work more on these but other work has meant putting them to the side for the time being.



NEW SITE *Domain forwarding fixed.

Hi folks,

Well, after a whole day of issues with things not working at times and working at others, after contacting the Squarespace helpdesk, everything is now working as it should.

www.patimrie.com

Should now direct properly to the site and the original 'pat-imire.squarespace' address should be replaced with 'patimrie.com'

It normally takes around 24 hours for the whole DNS to be propagated across the whole web so from time to time the site may go down or not load.  But please keep checking, if anything seems broken, please let me know.

Cheers folks,

EVEN More Site Updates

Howdy folks,

Turns out there are a few DNS errors with my domain forwarding to my new site over at Squarespace, so it is currently kicking out a 404 error. While I look into fixing it, please go to...

https://pat-imrie.squarespace.com/home


I will put out an update once I have everything sorted out!

Cheers,
