Mass Effect - (3d) Character Fan Art
Lately I've been feeling an itch to do something related to the Mass Effect series. Something that would integrate into the universe but still be my own take on it. I think the itch rose from seeing the new cinematic trailers for the upcoming Master Chief Collection which made me think of the Playstation equivalent: Mass Effect. I've always been a huge fan of Mass Effect and Bioware, and with Mass Effect 4 in the making and possibly a remake of the first 3 titles, it just seemed like the right time to make something myself. I've chosen to do a full character, mainly because I thought that would be the most rewarding and fun thing to do. I think I'm done with designing the character and I made some color changes in the process. When I combined the head with the armor it all just blended together, so I decided to change his tribal markings to a bright yellow which compliment the blue armor great ( I think).

Lana
Hello, Guys I'm here to share what I am working on right now. I am creating a portrait of Lana del Rey, and this is my first likeness attempt and now I know how difficult it is ahaha. I've created the base of the head and worked the topology of the mesh. At the moment I am working on the eyeballs, but I am not finding any good tutorials teaching how to draw realistic textures for the eyes. Do you know any so I can take a look at? I would really appreciate. Well this is what I have to show this far. Topology

Hi everyone! First post here, I finally decide to start my personal thread where I will post my work in progress and sculpture. Couple days ago I start working on a titanfall fan art. I come from a video game art background and with this project I want to challenge myself to make a character model for cinematic, trying to achieve a look like character's at blur. So that's my goal with this project! C&C are needed to improve my work Thanks!

The Ed Hardy Horn Ox
This is a depiction of what is refered to in Germany as a "Hornochse" (Horn ox) or at least how I imagine what one would look like. Its an insult to people who behave, act and look somewhat off-putting, similar to a "douchebag". This is why hes wearing cheesy Ed Hardy clothes.
