Thanks for the encouraging comments, all. Been busy with more traditional painting of late, update will follow shortly.
Quick sketch for the DnD project I've just found / forgot to post with the others.

Wicked cd cover design on the previous page! Too bad it never made it to print. And the last portrait is also nice! Used Beyonce as reference?

Cheers, AG. Yeah - that's right, Beyoncé. Perhaps a bit too pristine as one of the lost trying to survive the realm, though. I'll have to lose the make-up, and a couple of teeth.

Some close-ups, as the previous image loses a lot of the texture detail.
Wip shots to follow..

Cheers RandAlThor. I've another thread of oil paintings in the Finally Finished section, you're right though - need to keep updating.

Cool! Nice to see him done. Head looks great shame you ran out of time

Thanks Liz. Aye, story of life for me at the moment - no time. Perhaps insomnia will kick in again soon, that will help.

Hiya Gray, not been round for a while. Awesome updates! I love your idea of realising the DnD cartoon characters, I loved that show so much, really captured the imagination. Can't wait to see them all finished, especially Uni..."Uuuuuuni!!!"
Your grayslayer is really cool too, great to see the progress, just one crit is that his buttons look blurry, looks a bit off compared to the rest.

It's been ages since I've posted any updates, so thanks for stopping by as it reminds me to get back to it!
DnD is still great now, they don't make 'em like that anymore. I imagined at first that Uni had grown into a mighty warhorse, and pictured a grown Bobby-the-barbarian on horseback. Then I thought how years of hardship should affect the horse too, so maybe she should be a knackered old mare, on last legs?!
I agree with you on the slayer piece. It was very much a rush-job (as all of the ChOW entries seem to be) trying to get it done during lunchtimes and weekends. Thanks for feedback, I will continue to track your work and return some (hopefully helpful) feedback.

Been battling with this one, proportions.. pose.. colour.
I can see a few more changes needed, will log them all here!
November 10th, 2010 #107
Coming along nicely! The horse section looks a little skinny perhaps, but I'm no horse-expert. Looking forward to seeing the progress
November 11th, 2010 #108
Yeah, you may be right there - though the plan is to bring in more samurai armour and more horsegear which will add bulk too. Has been a proper headtest this one!
November 11th, 2010 #109
Ahh, yeah that'll certainly help! Got some fun research ahead of you!
November 11th, 2010 #110
Yep. Not at work though, 'Asian Armoured Horse' is returning lots of NSFW Google results. Hehe..

Oriental Centaur ~ Complete
... well, abandoned for the time-being as I need to move onto other stuff. Photoshop, Max, ZBrush.
November 24th, 2010 #115
argh shame you had to cut work short. Got her to a great level though
edit: seen this week's chow?
November 25th, 2010 #116
Cheers Liz, has put me in the mood to pick up the DnD stuff again and do more horse studies so it's done it's job.
You mean the Barbarella? I sketched something out to take part, but I've got two projects at critical stages at work. The overtime has meant no way of working something up by the weekend. Are you entering?
November 25th, 2010 #117
Yeah, Barbarella I'm working on something now, but I'm not sure if I'll get it finished. I'm terrible about finishing chow's haha.
That really sucks that you don't have enough time, it's a fun theme this week!
November 25th, 2010 #118
Agreed. Yet another semi-naked sci-fi chick lies half-finished on my hard-drive... <sniff>
Look forward to seeing what you come up with.
November 25th, 2010 #119
Oh it's tragic!
I'll post my WIP's in the thread soon. Yesterday I'd planned to spend this morning working on it, but when I woke up, it couldn't have been snowier outside. I am working, but I keep glancing out the window like a kid waiting for class to end. I don't think I can stay inside much longer :]

Great stuff, your robin hood was one of my favorites. The 3D models like very good, specially that red knight that has a great design. The low poly model was also very impressive, it's difficult to work wich such a low polycount as they use in games. I noticed though that the render was not that great. Maybe you should put some light opposite to the main one (a blue one for example) to avoid that harsh shadow, even if it's a preview, it takes so little to render and it adds so much to the pictures, it really helps selling the model. For the shinny parts I noticed a weird texture, maybe you could try putting a HDRI image, again, it renders quite fast.
