Robotball aka Bloopatone - here are some of my works in progress and the occasional finished piece. I'm hoping that by sticking them all in one thread I'll be inspired to finish something! I'd like to post more often but I have to divide my time between modeling and animation/effects which is why I go for a long time without posting, very frustrating!
I post these images for better or for worse, they represent where I am now with my skills. Like everyone here, I am constantly working on improvement. Some of these images have been posted before - sorry for the repeats.
My greenman/stone carving project. Yes, I'm still working on this guy!
My Frank Frazetta style sci fi image, I'm including the Maya WIP - still blocking out the lighting and creating textures for the environment. The main character is getting a little lost in the shadows!
Here's the character development for this study (done mostly in Scott Spencer's anatomy class):
The Medusa model creation is detailed in my "Introducing ZBrush" book. She was created for the head sculpting tutorial. The book just came out and was written in conjunction with Scott Spencer's book on Digital Character Creation. Of course my book is meant for beginners so many of you awesome ZBrush artists know a lot of the stuff in the book but if you happen to get a copy please let me know what you think! Pass it on to your friends who want to learn ZBrush!
I know - its a shameless plug, what can I do? Oprah won't return my calls.
Here is a project I'm working on still. I'm putting the textures and materials' through their paces (working in Maya + mental ray). I have yet to create specular maps and I have to (obviously) paint the eyes and teeth (lots of yellow and green from the teeth). I also want to put more metal in his face and a few other things. The basic premise is he's an old school English punk rock in his 80's.
Comments welcome. I know its a strange pose, I think it will make more sense when you see his eyes. He's kicking back in a laugh as he rmembers the good old days, like when he got kicked in the head at a UK Subs show...
