Darth Nader

Never piss a hippie off, because they will just send the green lord of the sith. If you thought listening to Cheney was going to be rough, I went to UVSC to see what the big deal was with this whole "alternative commencement" for BYU graduation. I was surrounded by a swarm of pissed off hippies, and had to listen to Ralph Nader try and sell his book for 2 hours. If it were me graduating that day, I would have stomached the VP for 15 minutes than have to take that 2 hour kidney pounding.

Big hats and flowers. What else do you need really?

1st texture pass

This is the first texture pass and surface extraction. I need to re do the uv layout I think. So all this might be a waste of time untill I decide.

Don't get a big head

Move over Z-brush, here comes a mud-box pie.

I recently have come across Mudbox and have found it to be one of the mos powerful tools in detailing and texturing high-res models. It won't take the place of Z-brush for now but I will be using it along side it to strengthen my work flow.

This big head is to remind me never to get one.

1st Zbrush detail pass

I haven't had a lot of time to do much for this guy because of finals at school, but today I spent a few hours detailing the surface and forming some texture to this lifeless head. I will hopefully get to the surface sampling soon.

Low poly 3D head

I have been doing some 3D again. It has been a while and I am feeling way rusty. I like doing 2D stuff more but needed to try a go at this again.

This is the base low poly head without textures, lights and no fancy render. I will try and do that stuff later.

Last weeks baby steps

Here is my first acrylic painting attempt. I love it. I have put off using it for so long due to all the horror stories, but found it was a lot more forgiving than I had anticipated. It felt more like digital painting for some reason. I am not sure I want to be replacing it for oils any time, but I am going to do more of it this next week.

And another draped figure study from Monday.
