guardian_900x.jpgImage made with Maya, Zbrush, Mental Ray. I started this as a head sculpt/sketch from a sphere in Zbrush, but then added the torso... then the lower limbs... then decided it needed a background... then some bugs.. then some smoke.Since I didn't start with a design, I just poked at it from time to time over the past couple months. So I guess the image evolved over time, but I'm happy with where it ended up. The final image is 4500x8000 to be printed at 30"x54".

Fume_900x.jpgSame guy as below... it was tough settling on an angle to work on him from. I'm still not even sure if this was the right choice, but time to walk away from it. I shot a bunch of photos of smoke specifically for this image that I comped in Photoshop... and now I am a big fan of smoke photos. They're purty.

whisper_1000x.jpgHappy New Year to all... Here's a quick photoshop study of a new zbrush sculpt. Still playing around with it so I'll probably have other images with this guy as he progresses.

Jester_900x.jpgHere's a new guy called 'Jester'. He's a plaything for kids. :) This is based on an old sketch of mine (in the 2D trad section) that I always wanted to make in 3D. I spent a bit of time on this one, making 2k-4k textures for everything with the intention of being able to make a big print. Maybe... But at least I know he will hold up to an 8k render. Of course, I need more RAM if I want to pull that off. Perhaps it is time to get a 64bit machine... hmm. Anyhow, he is done for now... need to take a break from it to get some perspective. (and opinions).

smile.jpgHere's a new unfinished(?) image 'Smile'... I got to this point after a couple evenings and haven't had time to get back to it. Its tough to have fun making an image, but then have a week go by with not one second to work on it anymore! So for now, I thought I would post it here. It is based on another one of the sketches below. Maya/Zbrush/Photoshop.
