Moonshiner’s Life

A quick one (roughly 1h 15min) I did for the CTT activity at Unit 16 last week. Pretty much all I had time for since I had to leave town for the weekend but I like how it turned out. I had good trip and it’s very cool to meet old friends.

And this was my fatty for the next in line on the activity:

Girls’ Adventure!

Here’s something a bit different that I’ve been meaning to finish for quite some time now. It’s sort of a bastard son of the covers of the 50s & 60s men’s “sweat magazines” and girls’ romance comics. Mostly those magazines were produced by men and usually it’s pretty easy to tell…

The illustration is a mixture of 3D and whole lot of Photoshop. I didn’t actually model anything so I guess this is what you would call “Poser art”. I textured the icky tentacles though. I like icky things.

Quite frankly this piece would have taken a whole lot less if I had just painted the damn thing. I had fun though, and I like the real-but-not-quite feel that the piece has, as if I had used puppets or miniature models. I don’t think I could achieved the the same look for the tentacles by painting either.

And here’s a detail for a better look at the lover boy and just for the hell of it.

Elf Bomb

Here’s a couple of images for the CTT activity at U16. The first one is after Audzilla’s sketch and I’m not sure if it makes any sense without it. The second one is of course the image for the next in line.

Brainy Demon

Brainy Demon

Just blowing some steam. I’ve been playing around with an awesome, new, FREE 3D sculpting program Sculptris. 3D is kind of a guilty pleasure for me since what I do never seems to amount to anything worth showing because the end results are rarely anything artistically interesting.

3D has however helped me flex artistic muscles that I rarely use otherwise – and working with lighting, texturing and, now, sculpting has helped me gain a better understanding of how light works, for instance. So it’s not complete waste of time and it’s fun.

This image is just a bunch of screengrabs from Sculptris combined in Photoshop with some post-processing to add shading, colors, texture and BLOOOOOOD. So no fancy rendering here.

I may have gone a little crazy with the glows but what the hell, it was fun. Here’s my sketch for the next in the activity:

I’ve been reading 100 Bullets lately, so here’s a hood to go with the theme.

What an awesome series – great writing, great art.

Drinking and Drawing

Here are some doodles that I’ve done over a few nights of drinking and drawing. Pretty much all typical motifs for those nights are represented: Superheroes, rockers, barbarians, women and general bad taste… For many of these I picked a theme and stuck with it until the next paper.

Jeez, the site sure is slow today.
