    Hehe I like the battle-nun theme Especially your last one, that's some good use of warm colors on the back ^^ I like your style!

    Here's the WIP anim. Total project about 3 hours total. It's fun to slap things around fast!

    .pc thanks a lot!

    After the dwarf I think it might be fun to do character portraits for people's WoW toons as a way to do some directed daily work. Anybody interested? Might be a dumb idea or might be fun. If you're interested, PM me a shot of your character in some sort of interesting gear and maybe a pose idea or two, and it'll be a good exercise for me to see how close I can get.

    Any takers?

    in2eternity Thank you very much!

    Jonathan C - here's tonight's WIP of your character - only an hour in so this is reeeeally rough, but you can see where I'm going with it for the most part. Having to take some creative liberties with shoulders and armor a bit - those gnome meshes are always stabbing themselves in the faces in WoW!

    I'll post the final and a process anim as soon as I am done - hopefully I'll finish that up tomorrow or saturday.

    this is so cool! I love the pose you gave her. and yea, I think if any wow character raises their arms past 45 degrees they would decapitate themselves.

    WIP 2 on that character - still probably 3 hours more of work to get the details cleaned up and to fix some issues and do some more background rendering. Then a lighting pass, highlights and some edge work.
    Getting there! Taking longer than I expected - the armor has required a lot of retooling and fiddling.

    I think I'm going to call this done - not quite happy with it but not sure what do do without starting over from scratch. I think my lesson learned is to try not to be too slavish with the armor - I spent way too much time fiddling with it trying to get it right and the result feels a little cluttered and unnatural to me. Not really happy with the hair either - there's parts that are OK but others bother me. Need to practice more. Still, I learned a lot.


    Jonathan C, thanks a bunch for letting me paint your toon! I don't have any anymore ( stopped playing a while ago ), but my wife might have something paintworthy - I'll check!

    And here's the process anim -


    Anybody else have a character they're willing to throw on the pyre to have a portrait done up? This is good practice and an interesting challenge. I'd love to do one of the other races next.

    Any takers?

    Decided to maybe take a crack at this week's CHOW, as this sprang to mind right away and was fun to do - 90 minute speedpaint of what first came to mind, a sort of evolved rodent-race that are the last survivors of the radiation aboveground. Living in coffee-cans, that sort of thing.

    I'm still game for another WoW portrait if anybody's got a char they're interested in throwing my way -
