I am still looking at mechs -looking at other amazing artists and drawing from them (literally), and the I have to get this into 3D concepting land - -but now I am starting to "see" - couple of marker sketches from my sketchbook - oh analog I love you.
I finally have my set up my workstation the way I always wanted, 2D on the left - Cintiq 12wx, (old tech but great for what I do in 2D - screen area is proportional to workload).... and on the right 3D land, wirless Intous pro 13, which will be used for 3D - Modo. Maya, 3Dcoat and of course ZBrush.
Stoked because it all works togethr - was really getting irritated with my hands in the way in 3d land, went back to my Intous, then really missed drawing on screen for my digital painting stuff - now I have the win win scenario - and yeas I know I could set the Cintique to slave on my main screen - but I like this division of hardware/tools/mindset.
Self portrait day today - part of a Facebook group submission. Its been along time since I have done a selfie - 20 years!?? feck! - The last time it was in guash on illustration board, now its a PS job based off today's webcam pic - looking kinda urrg (appropriate since yesterday was Halloween) and its 4 am in the morning when I started the thing.
My digital paint techniques need work ( tonal variation- better lighting - I blame my web cam pic :P).
This November I hope to take a page out of the other half's book (she is a machine)and crack on with some new pieces as well as put some older ones to bed - time to level up once more.
VFX artist and sometimes animator, this is my blog.
