Stylized Drake Painting

So you work on something for so long that you get kind of tired of it... and then you stop working on it and start missing it! .... weird :) Anyway, I'm kinda obsessed with creating a stylized drake and so this is one more attempt at it. It' not that different from the sculpt I did in an earlier post. Also gave me an opportunity to keep learning painter. I definitely need to get into colour... I'm just kinda scared of it right now...

Hope you dig it!

fat dude character design

Okay, I started learning painter and did this value study as my first painting... there are some cool-ass brushes in painter! I'm really enjoying it. Will probably have a colour version of this to post pretty soon.

Mugabe Caricature

I did a sketch for this a while back.... while going through some stuff I saw it and decided to paint it and finish it off... my wife is from Zimbabwe, so it's only fitting that I do a caricature of Mugabe :) ... not to mention how interesting his face is!

Head Sculpt


Here's a head sculpt I did today just for fun.... it took me about 2 hours in total. The one is a screen-shot out of mudbox and the other is a quick maya render ( I just put SSS on everything, so its kinda overbearing :) )... Enjoy!
