I'm working on a comic and I wanted to get a better sense of the characters. So I've begun sculpting them in zbrush to turn them around. Heres is one of the main characters I did last night, Gainer (also featured below on the cover of Gimbal). I'll be using these for reference while I draw the comic.
And I started with a sphere, That's right, Wynia, no base mesh.
Here is an interview I did with the venerable Pilar Alessandro from "On The Page" the best screenwriting podcast show out there. If you'd like to hear me make a fool of myself in real time check this out at:
Here is a sneak peak of the sculpt I'm working on this week for my Zbrush class with Bryan Wynia (http://conceptdesignacad.com/). See if you can guess this character. Bryan, you can't guess, or Emily, or Winston or Albert. Apollo you can guess, because we have no clue where you are.
Here is a piece of animation that shows off a Chinese New Year Tiger that I designed. I love working with Falcon's treehouse! Go to the link below to see the animation. http://www.falconstreehouse.com/NewYearCard/Chinese%20New%20Year.html
I'm getting into Zbrush. I'm taking a class with Bryan Wynia (check out his stuff at: http://bryanwynia.blogspot.com/) at the Concept Design Academy in Pasadena. Just had the first class last Saturday, feel like I'm already learning a lot. Above is my first head sculpture. We're doing a Greek Mythology theme. This is an interpretation of Charon.
I define myself first and foremost as a Mac person, secondly as an American, and thirdly as a carnivore (fourth and fifth place are up for negotiation). I like to prioritize it in case I'm interrogated. That being said, I finally got a peak at the newly forthcoming hand-held apple product. Those guys are constantly reinventing the wheel! Brilliant... Simply brilliant...
This is a caricature I painted of Neville Page, one of the contemporary Masters of Creature Design. If you've seen, Avatar, Star Trek, Cloverfield, or Watchmen (among many others) then you've seen his stuff. Check out his work at http://www.nevillepage.com/. We met briefly at Comicon. Since then, I've been following his work like I bought Stock in it.
This is a caricature I painted of one of my favorite artists, Francisco Herrera. If you don't already know his work you should check out his blog at http://www.herrerabox.com/blog/. His drawings are so dynamic. I keep his sketchbooks by my drawing desk just to punish myself whenever I think I'm getting good.
