    Default Patrick Wards Work Dump (nudity)

    Well, the level of talent on here has always put me off posting anything but during some downtime I came across some old sketches and WIPS I'd done a while back. Since I'm not allowed to post any new work I thought I'd throw the old stuff up here. I rarely get a chance to use zbrush these days as I'm mostly compositing and texturing but I'm itching to jump back in.

    I hope attaching images is the right thing to do?


    Johnny Alpha- Strontium Dog. One of my favourite characters to come out of Starlord.

    This was a test I did during some down time. It wasn't finished as work came in but it served its purpose.

    These are just some 1 - 2 hour doodles. I take no credit for the concept work. Some of these are copied from photos, some from famous sculptures, others from conceptart.org. The only names I can remember are Cody Swanson and Bjorn Nettelbladt. If you see that I've copied your concept here please let me know so I can credit you.
    With the exception of hair and eyes they all started life as the low res shown.

    edit: also to be credited for concept ..
    Aris Kolokantis .. thanks Stellios.

    A couple of years ago I volunteered to help out on a short film project called the Villikon Chronicles. I did about 12 shots in all.

    These are some WIPS I found from Overlord. I was still waiting for my Renderman license at the time, hence the watermarks.

    Great work, some very powerful pieces there.

    My elder brother bought all of the early 2000AD comics so I remember Strontium Dog very well!

    I like the Robbie Coltrane bust too... instantly recognisable.

    curtmantle .. thanks. Unbelievably my mum gave away all my pristine and intact copies of Starlord to a kid down the road so I recently had to reacquire them off ebay. It was such a cracking comic in its day and gave us the likes of Strontium Dogs and what later became the ABC Warriors. I was gutted at the time that it merged with 2000AD but I don't imagine they could of continued on their own given the production quality.

    Default Durham Red WIP

    After dabbling with Johnny Alpha I wanted to build Durham Red and get her ready for a game engine so I've just started this. All new territory for me as I've not made a game asset for many years and things have certainly moved on. We normally just make the high-res assets or a client supplies us with low-res game models to up-res. So I'm aiming to get this into U3 and I'm hoping some of you can give me pointers.

    The plan is to model this up high, texturing it in zbrush with GUV's, use 3DCoat to retop and make the UV'd game mesh, use xnormal to create game textures then the U3 SDK to put it together. So far so good I think. But I can't get my head round the logistics of this.

    This is what I have so far.

    DR_wip_v003.jpg

    Now then this is very much WIP. The hair is placeholder and the stockings are a test, legs aren't done at all. It all needs much work etc.etc.
    But what would be the usual way to get all this into xnormal? I don't imagine I'll be able to combine all the subtools into one without some major memory issues. Do I need to do it in sections and then edit the textures together? I'd really appreciate some advice on the next stages. Thanks.
