    They are really cool! Agatha Christie's model is great! but I find that the pose it feels like might fall at any moment is not a stabilized position, it would be more believable if she stepped on something rather than like a half-way step. How did...

Character art - The World of Lexica
Hey all. I'm excited to share character art from The World of Lexica, an action-adventure educational game for the iPad created by Schell Games for Amplify Education Inc. This is a language arts game aimed at helping middle school kids to improve reading and writing skills, and it brings together characters from literature throughout the world. You can check out more info here on the iTunes App store! Zbrush was a large part of our pipeline, not only for final asset sculpting, but also for concept sculpting, as well as polypainting and mask creation for later use in Photoshop. The sculpts I shared below are rendered in Keyshot, while the game models are rendered in Marmoset Toolbag 2. A big thanks to my fellow character artists, Eric Montanari and Ross Kimball, who helped me to grow as an artist, along with our awesome concept artists, Ryan Yee, Zach Coe, Max Davenport, and Astro Leon-Jhong. Thanks to everyone else at Schell who also helped bring this game to life! John Baba Yaga, from Russian folkore

Hey all. This is the demo character I created for the CG Society Workshop I teach, a 3 week course called Rapid Character Development for Online Games. Sculpted and painted in Zbrush. Concept by Eric Zawrotny. The workshop is geared toward creating characters for games like Diablo, Torchlight, or DOTA, where the characters are smaller on screen. Please check out the course here if you're interested. The next session starts on January 7th, and the first session sold out! Thanks for looking!

Hey all. Here are some recent sculpts and sketches. The animal sketches are meant to have no tails at the moment, as they will be in a game with swappable tails. Thanks for any thoughts!
