Trolling Around

Hi Everyone,
Here is a sketch and  paint-over versions of a Space Troll.  I tried to do a little bit of painting after work rather than watch tv.  A few minutes here and there. Just for fun... so enjoy!

Disgruntled Clerk

I was shopping at my favorite electronics store when I came across an employee that looked really unhappy.  He seemed to have "checked-out" a long time ago.  That shopping experience was the idea behind this sketch. Hope you like it.

Need for Speed

Hi Everyone,
It is one of those weeks where I really struggled to get something done.  One of the best ways of getting out of a slump is to do something fast, like a sketch or a speed-sculpt.  I was not sure where I wanted to go with this sculpt, but it got me motivated enough to get back to some real work. I hope that you like it.

The Love Letter

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!
I wanted to post something fun this week, and so I decided to paint this sketch.  Hope you like it. Cheers!

Southside Thug

Not long ago I had an idea for a thuggish type of character.  Something like a video game lackey.  I completed a few sketches but they were going nowhere.  This chap came out of a “ZBrush Materials” exercise, and became the bad guy that I wanted to sculpt.  Over a few nights I managed to get him to this point.  He still needs a lot of work, but it’s always fun to post a work in progress.

What? Not Another Pig!

Ok I have to admit I do like cartoon pigs. They are fun to draw, but the recent pig motif on this blog is just pure coincidence.  I work on a lot of different things at the same time just to mix things up, but sometimes a project gets finished faster.  This idea is an old one but just happened to get completed faster when I realized what I wanted to do with it.  I laughed when I noticed that I was posting yet another pig. I found this while browsing my older sketches and immediately wanted to put the character into this warm setting. I redid the original pencil sketch in Illustrator and moved it into Photoshop for painting (about 4 hours – start to finish).  Is he a bad piggy?  I leave that entirely up to you.

What's Shakin' Bakin'

I updated to version 1.42 of ZBrush without a hitch, right through the plug-in menu.  I hope all their future updates go that easy. I am taking a break from painting, and also avoiding to fix a code bug that’s been killing me on my Crazy Hearts game, by doing this speed sculpt.  I found something like it in my sketchbook but it was too ugly to post, so I am sharing just the ZBrush work.  I figure if I avoid fixing the code in my game, it will magically fix itself. Yeah right...
