Phew, first piece that hasn't been a sketch in over a month, I believe. At first I had intended this picture to be the clich%E9 "someone looking out over a landscape". But when I finished the background, I decided to make it the clich%E9 "Some dudes hunting another dude that isn't on the picture, but people know they're hunting someone and since they can't see that fellow they think they're clever for figuring it out." Photoshop... hmm, a couple of hours. No "pencil" sketches for people or background. I like underpainting better.
A commission for David Morris of my character dancing. :P This was an interesting challenge, being that my character and I aren't very nimble. Imagine that this is, I guess, a freeze-frame--right after this was taken, she falls down a flight of stairs. Yes.
A commission for Michael Russell of Vicki and my characters meeting for the first time at the Pecan Festival. Chip'n'dip somehow made his way into the pecan pie. :P Done in prismacolor colored pencils and tria markers. Vicki is copyright to Michael Russell and the rest are copyright to me.
Happy birthday Sel (who is gorgeous and wonderful)! Or, well, actually her birthday is tomorrow but everyone's going to be running about for Independance Day! Anyway, Sel likes these pony toys. So here's her character Reaperfox taking Worry for a ride on her gothic steed. Heheh!
P.S. "Essential Lightwave" also comes with a full demo version of Lighwave 3D, (non-time-limited, I believe,) a 50-dollar coupon off LW, and about 200MB worth of free and shareware plugins and external programs, including the full version of Cinepaint, the 48bit paint program used on "Harry Potter," "Men in Black 2," "Scooby Doo," and more! (This is in addition to all completed Scenes, Models and Textures for the exercises in the book - if, like me, you learn best through exploring how someone else works!) (Image is an Early version of Kaze)
My apologies for the almost re-post, but the new edition of Keyframe Magazine, (Issue 33,) has over twenty full-color images of 3D works I've done, plus a rather lengthy article on how the "Reflected Light," (Fine Art created using 3D tools,) artworks were created. (It's almost like a portfolio - with lots of other cool stuff thrown in too! :) Keyframe should be in stores now in areas that have heavy concentrations of 3D Industry.
