Juno Bust WIP

kind of the basic workflow of how I paint... first a rough sketch, then make colorswatches and, as I paint, make more!Next time I'll promise to make incremental saves, because a lot of image-flipping were done while making this picture!

candy tree concept


I had fun doing this. This is a concept I made for one of the assignments at school; building a level in UDK using a movie as inspiration. I made this concept because I needed some help with modeling the tree...

Elf WIP


It's been a while, been working on a concept but it's taking quite long. I must admit I'm not completely focusing on it, but let's see when I can finish it. Colors follow after this. Not planning on making full body, but we'll see.

Triumph intake

this week I had an internship interview with the director @ Triumph Studios in Delft, Netherlands.
Due to the lack of finished concepts they gave me second chance to prove that my work was worthy that of a character artist. I got a little assignment from the director, which I turned into this:

voila, le pirat


finished the textures of the pirate, the reason his costume is grey because now I can make different color-versions of him :) I also modeled a gun for him because the designer added shooting to the game, now this is finished I can focus entirely on making the animations for both pirate and robot characters... *sigh*

IT WORKS!

It's been a while since I used aim constraints and it took me a while to figure out how to rig that piston part (wheel part), but it's done now and it works fine! (check pic)


So if I move that circle controller underneath the wheel, the whole thing will follow and rotate along nicely and the upperbody won't move. If I move the upperbody, then the wheel will stay put on the ground, and the piston parts will aim toways the central sphere of the upperbody. :)

robot rig (almost finito)

eet eez (almost) finished! THE AWESOMENESS!!!

 it's (almost) ready to be animated -_-'

C.

EDIT: rig wasn't quite the way I want it to behave, the wheelpart needs to be re-rigged, will do that later...

robot character

I've been redesigning the robot character, cuz some people *looks at you* thought it was funny to mention it looking like a pokéball... *sigh*...
 
So yeah, here's the usual stuff like sketches and prntscrns from Maya! I personally like the way it looks, I'll maybe add something during the modeling process, but until then I be havin fun!

run cycle


hi all,

here's an update for the Pirate character I created not too long ago. I fixed some issues with the geometry that caused limb movements impossible, then made a skeleton rig and bound the geometry on it and made a test animation for Leroy (programmer) to test in his engine! The animation is then batch rendered and I made a gif animation out of it but it plays too slow, prolly like twice as slow as normal (24fps). Sorry for that.

The rig has basic
IK-legs
IK-feet
FK-spine and arms
head can be moved and rotated using IK handle and orient constraint.

change

I have decided today to change from squid to octopus, maybe I've already done that in the past and I'm dumb and thought that a squid was an octopus, ah well they're from the same family anyways...

Started on a basemesh, almost ready to sculpty sculpt!... (only one half, gonna copy and merge the other in the end!)

sashimi

I almost forget to do my homework next to dave's game project (at least I try to...). Today I worked on some quick felt-tip designs for my 2D3 assignment, where we have to sculpt and texture an organic object.
Shads done with copic marker.



Here's my reference image, think it's enough detail for sculpting and textures. (maybe 2 more images)
