Todays Mushrooms

Every 3D artist ever has to end up modeling some mushrooms at some point, so heres mine.
Just a simple set of 3, theyre probably a little expansive for mushrooms when you think about it, but Its not made for anything in particular. Being wasteful on the map, lots of empty space.
Flat diffuse map with marmoset render.
Was a fun little day project non the less.

Its a Thursday at the national institute of time

Still life work is still enjoyable, playing with shadow and what not, I perfer using human or animal subjects more than glass balls and what not, feel Im learning more about character features than when i was studying the later. Maybe I should do a long still life. Get something highly rendered and what not.

Reading is a pile of, okay I guess.

30 minute speedpaint
Considering Im back in Reading I thought I would do a quick speedpaint. This is a little stuffed bear that sits in my hallway, thought it was kind of fluffy, dont draw many fluffy things.

On other news, I forgot to bring my tablet mouse with me, this isnt a problem for drawing, however using 3DsMax now has a added challenge to it, it would seem.
Oh I also forgot to bring my lamp, so still lifes are going to look kind of dull in the afternoons, stupid light.

 Oh yeah, and this stuff. Dont you love it when youre university gets you to do work for them, but make it part of your university projects? ...what that doesnt happen to you? Well youre obviously missing out. (If that sounds bitter, its not, Im fine with it, but still find it amusing.)

30 Minute photostudy

Morning Self Portrait
Long time no real words. Ive been kind of pre-occupied with silly little things and been unable to update frequently with a good amount of text.
Not much has been going on.
But ive noticed a trend in my course of blatent photocopying. Makes me want to make a tutorial on why one should do a photostudie. Or copy from a photo in general.
Theres nothing wrong with photo studies, but how you use them can be. Copying from a photo and saying " heres my final illustration, look at me im badass " is pretty lame, theres no real challenge and youre not helping yourself create new imagery, you already have the photo, what the point of painting it? No one will ever ask you to copy a photo to the T. Painting a realisitc scene from like has some promise. Youre changing a 3D scene, into a 2D plane with the illustion of 3D. Which is a great skill you learn and will make you understand the 3D world in depth. Where as the 2D photo study is flat naturaly. Not to mention, the difference between youre two eyes vision and the vision of a one eyed camera.

You should realy only do photostudies for reasons such as: How do I draw that?  Ive never drawn that before. I want to know a bit more about this. I want to test out this new technique/brush/medium.
Some people dont seem to realise that and just go " DUR THIS IS MY AMAZIN FINAL PEICE ", its pretty lame.
