Poster test.  Not sure I like the focal length on the camera but it’s slowly getting there.

Slowly plugging away at the sculpt.  I’m so frustrated with wrinkles but I think I’m slowly getting there… maybe.  Needs more ovlerap and the ear is looking wayyyy too small but it’s coming along.

Some work for one of the characters for my grad film.  Slowly converting a rough hair sculpt to guide curves and a discarded test for clothing.  Simulations are tough.

Running wayyyyy behind schedule but I’m learning a lot.

Working on some planar studies of the skeleton Misha bought.  Playing around with accents on the third one a bit.

Did a lunchcrunch of Alfred Abel; his jaw is a bit too wide here but that’s  because it’s an orthographic render, totally forgot to turn on the perspective. I always love the look of silent movie makeup, and Metropolis is def. one of my favourite films ever… might work on this some more.

A couple of the variants on a design for one of the characters for my grad project…  It’s just a big detailed mess right now, though.  I want to balance design with anatomy and believable mechanical structure l if I can, but it’s tough, plus I’m torn between having something with, like… more of a hard-surface exterior, like some of Shirow’s older stuffan organic interior, or something more organic, like Ash in Alien.  The former would put more emphasis on the detailing, the latter on the figure, but it’s hard to say what I actually want.

#so ocd  #get over yourself nakamoto it doesn't actually have to work 

A couple 5-10 minute studies I liked from yesterday’s life drawing.

Some 3d scan tests.   I like how crazy my brother’s hair came out (at the top). Not good enough, yet… but a start, I guess.  I think I need to work with more professional equipment. I think if I had, like, five cameras slaved together instead of the few that I’ve got, I could get it done right… but maybe I need to go to a laser scanner or something.

#3d  #scan 

Some 5-10 min lifedrawing studies.  Trying to focus on proportions, planes, and large volumes.

I did another quick study in maya and spent about two hours blocking in some rough shapes. Lots of changes to be made before it’s done, but at least I’ve got a base to get some more work done on now.  Gotta fix the back/neck and some smoothing errors, and then I’m going to really get in and start making it more dense.
