Damn where has all the time gone

So been super busy at work, haven't had really much time to do much of anything lately, but I will have a few months to ease back a bit and try and throw a lot of energy into a personal project.
Basically a short film idea, which I am keen to give a go win or lose. But there is a lot of ground work to put in first, but will keep the updates from it rolling on this site as well. Really keen to work personal film, and it has been a few years since the last one.

Sunday Night

It is amazing how quickly the weekends runs away with you. Did some more work on the x-wing, will post up some more photos during the week, just been putting together the main sections, then the plan is to spray a base coat before getting into some serious painting.

For now here is work in progress on the 40k marine, wil lbe a few months before I get back to working on this as I stumbled across a art competition (Retrogasm Art Competition) that I am going to have a go at. Taking a retro game and updating the character, my pick was Arthur from Ghost n Goblins.

So some new wips will be gracing this blog soon

So I scrapped  part of the chest piece and integrated part of Dark Angel design into it, which works much better than just the eagle. Also playing around with some secondary decorations on the chest armor which I will scrap to re introduce some more warhammer-ish designs

Where has the time gone

Well it has been ages,, I have decided to break up some 3d work with a bit of good ol fashioned model kit and what better than a x-wing.

Will be taking photos of the progress, as a record of where I end up screwing the model up, haven't made one of these since I was a little kid :)
These Bandai kits have such amazing detail, pretty damn crazy, anyways photos of the new project

Oh yeah Happy New Year

Man I have been slack posting, I have a camera full of images still to process still and been mucking around on more 3d projects and enjoying the great summer.

Anyways I really want to have more finished art this year, so to start it of here is a unfinished piece :P
This was for a Darkstalkers comp on facebook 3d Anime challenge.

Was a good learning cure, getting a better character pipeline going, still got a few tweaks to sort out. Upgraded to Zbrush R7, still haven't had a chance to play with any of the new goodies, will have to se some time aside for that.

End is Nigh

Man almost the end of the year already, been pretty damn busy, good to be catching up on some personal work again.

Here is some images that I forgot to throw up here, just wips as usual. work is slowly progressing with the 40k guy, just been setting up shaders, looking forward to showing it off in the new year

1st one was some colour concepts for my bug alien, still got a couple more to do before rolling it out.

2nd is a update for the Cuthulu bust I was doing, changed his head since it was very generic

3rd, rough chest piece to the 40k space marine I am making

Just a quickie

Things are starting to get back to normal again, it has a been a pretty busy end of year, trying to get back into some of my person work again now.

Tonight was jumping back into texturing and setting up some test shaders. Trying to look dev a more illustration feel to the model, with play with this for a bit, hopefully if will work out. Not sure how well hair will go with this style but I guess that is all part of the experiment.

I find I keep painting out the brush strokes from over working it, this is a rough base which I will refine if this works out

TextureTesting

back on this guy again, just started to making some custom brushes for some acne scar textures, been using J├╝rgen Prochnow for skin reference, got a sudden feeling to watch Das Boot again, great film.
