    Night of the Portapotamus!

    With Halloween fast approaching, I thought I’d put the b-movie poster I did for a b-movie cg challenge. It won best character.

    Photoshop illustration.

    Incinerated--Thanks! I’ll be piling up more stuff today.

    Keeping in the eerie theme, here’s a ZBrush head study of Alfred.

    I’m working out some ideas for the head for a 2d/3d illustration.
    Here’s one that I’ve been playing with, still on the back burner:

    Dutch Warmblood, sculpted in ZBrush. I made the base mesh in Cinema 4D and did the UV map work in Modo.

    Meadow Sprite WIP

    I started the Sprite work to create a hybrid oil painting/digital painting out of an abandoned oil done 12 years ago. I scanned the oil and removed the chipmunk to replace it with the Sprite. This is another back burner piece that I thought would be an interesting project.

    Done in Photoshop

    Iím also thinking about doing a ZB sculpt of her, without the butterfly wingsómaybe some other unique insect-like wings.

    Wow.. These are great man, I'm drawn to your studies and you've got a great eye for design.. I love how the sprite you've created, maybe work some translucency into her wings?

    Patrik D--Thanks!

    aargh!--Thanks. I initially thought about going more transparent with the butterfly wings. They look a bit heavy and earthy like moth wings right now. I’m not sold on the wing coloration yet. I might go a more translucent route, when I revisit.

    kevin_--Thanks! Glad you like the Portapotamus.

    Amber MarieóThanks so much--glad you find the stuff motivating.


    Hereís a Photoshop line-drawing I did from 'life', a while ago, primarily to test out the sensitivity of the Wacom Intuos4 tablet I just bought (in comparison to the intuos3 6x8 wide it was replacing). In conclusion I was a little underwhelmed at the difference.
    All of the lines are freehand, no straight edges or ellipse guides were used. #4 is #3 with a stroked fill (the thick trapline is the result of the stroked fill).
