I was messing about in after effects with some of the optical flares and particular plugins. I like the outcome and hope to play about with some of these in the future on some of my projects to add some nice effects to it.
Took a little time off the 3d stuff to do a commision for someone in work as a present from her granddaughter to her dad for fathers day. It took me roughly 10 hours over a couple of days. I haven't done a portrait in years so was interesting to get back into it and relearning as i got further into the process. I remember using karsima pencils in school and loved them. Unfortunately they stopped selling them but managed to find prisma pencils which seem to do the same job. Im pretty happy with the likeness of the final result. I like the little technique of breaking the lead slightly with the white sparkle of the eye to help get the slightest build up of lead to make it stand out. I hope to try and draw more regularly to improve and learn even more skills. Any contsructive criticism are all welcome.
finished this the other day but forgot to post it as been busy. Only took me a couple of hours. Ive been really enjoying z brush just now as well as the rendering from it swell. It has made my 3d concept workflow a lot faster. I plan to keep on just battering out some brush models to help increase my speed and efficiency. Here are some different colour schemes. Im just experimenting with different moods and tones. Looking over them now the last one looks a bit grootesc from guardians of the galaxy ( non intentional ). Whats your thoughts ?
so was just playing about with fibermesh and lighting just to see the different looks i can achieve. Through this little furry guy I've learned how to render and light in brush. This can help me fire out good concepts in z brush without having to export and render in another software. I also got to play with pose master which was fun and very helpful. The initial design has changed a bit but still got a lot of work to do on the fur. Will need to do a bit of grooming. Ill keep you updated.
