A-24 Dauntless

Thought Id paint a aircraft today, went for a A-24 Dauntless inspired craft. Its relitivly similar, however I seem to have given it a bigger engine-air duct deal and no spinner, It dont need no spinner! (Although It does)
Anyway this was my first 3d render pass drawing, its a pretty cool method, I remember Al told me to give it a shot, think Ill have to play with it some more before getting decent results.
Some some bothersome reason it uploaded and made it darker, I dont know why.

Punk Monks

Spent an hour today working on a set of Monk-punk characters. Trying to combine to characteristics, not sure how I feel about them, but they're interesting.

Wanted to make a kind of, aggressive receptionist. I think I got the idea across, think it would have been better if i had given her pastel colour clothing, would have been an amusing contrast.

Sketchbook post!

I dont think I've posted anything from my sketchbook in a couple of weeks or so. A bit of a shame really, but thats how it goes. Just havnt had the time to scan them.
Having a bit of fun at the moment with pen and scribbly stuff.

I remember I wanted to buy a set of oil paints  when my loans came in this year. Sadly, I havnt been able to buy any, as I've been left with only a few hundred to live upon untill my next loan comes through. I foresee this happing allot. I still want to do some oil painting though.

Filing Cabinet

Made a little filing cabinet today, mainly to test out opening and closing in UDK, it was pretty fun to texture and I feel I could have got away with having a small texture if I wanted, also I could have shaved off some more Triangles. But Its okay for now.

Mortal Engines LOD

Wish I found out how to rig sooner, rigging LODs is a "cake walk" compaired to rigging a 6k mesh. Damn. Rigged this LoD in less than an hour, which is crazy for me, however something tells me it should take more time than that, but hey, it works.

Self portrait Wip

Well does not marmoset make the difference?

Sometimes I just guilt myself in to writing something about my work. Mainly because I rarely write anything and secondly, It will make me look slightly more professional. Not only that, but it could build character, who knows. Give people something to read you know.

So This will be about the use of reference material, as we all know use of reference has its up and downs.
Copying a photo to the pixel is something that I consider poison, however the use of photos can change your work from something alright, to something a bit better. How do you know what your charcters face will look like if you dont know what a face looks like? Many artists use a photo or a model or something like that. Life drawing is using a referance, just primary referance. Recently Ive been thinking about how I can use my life drawing for illustration purposes, Ive done this a few times before, a few digital paints and a few traditionals.
Change the clothes, change the setting, change the mood, change the stance. The limits are unending, the first push is all thats needed to catapult ones imagination into a place unknown, who cares how you get there once youre there?
I dont really know where Im going with this. I guess I can just say, I used referance, than changed my painting untill it no longer looked like the reference picture, In fact, I got the reference from a korean photoshoot website. Oh well.
