I never get tired on mattepainting. The fantasy is so huge you can paint everything you can imagine. I find out that I suck at persp thats no good, it is like seeing in black and white but not the color. I have to understand the persp and then I have acomplished and be better than I am today. This week will only be concepting but next week I will start with the modelling.
Two project at the same time and deadline is next week. I am now at school working with my own project. It is too much even though it is two. One is for my portfolio and one is game project with another group. I guess I need to go for 50% each. Time is important and I even dont have time to do some speedpaints. Oh what the heck here is a speedy I did.
Here is my concept to my character. I have 3 weeks to do it and it is going to be a mutant player that play softball very violent and doesnt care of any living coming nearby. He kills everything he sees. A little bit if running man and gamer.
It is becoming worse then I ever thought. I thought I could spend some time do some mattepaintings but I dont have time spending in game project at school. I am trying to find some space to do but they maximum are 1h. So I have only afford with sketch and speedpaints.
I am quite happy with it. Finished it for a couple of hourse ago. I hope my presentation will go well next week. I will be putting this into my portfolio. So far I have worked with it for almost 2 weeks. And this is my first character too^^
So far it is good. But it wasnt planned to do it all wrong. I should have a better modell but now it is mess just because zbrush crashed 12 times to not open a ztl file. I decided to begin all over again and now it worked. So it is something wrong with ztl file I dont know.
I have sculpted my first char in zbrush for 1,5 week now. I am thinking of putting her in a battle scene she has killed a big mecha robot and posing there with a big sniper rifle and smiling. The deadline is next week monday. I need to finish it as soon as possible.
That damn camstudio crashed when I was finished with recording a tutorial I did. Now all recorded is lost. Damn shit now I have to start over again. This tutorial following how I paint this speedy bumblebee.
I got frustrated if I wouldnt paint in two days. So like everyday I paint at least one picture. But I wish I could have time to do a massive complicated paint. Now I have to go to gym or I will get fat.
I might study more about persp view. People says it is easy to do a persp paint but I dont really understand the foundation yet. How do they draw it so sharp and exactly? Thats what I need to find out.
Simply the result of me is lazy. Ive been lazy quite long time since I dont have anything to do. But the school starts not until next week, I have to keep my painting skill warm so I could have a good start. I do better get going now.
I wanted to share something I randomly fell right into his website. His name is Josh Nizzi this guy knows how to concept robots, especially transformers. He has done a tutorial training dvd from gnomon how to concept robots. Check out his website! http://www.joshnizzi.com/
What the heck am I doing now? I cant find any ideas of painting environments all I have in my mind is Team Fortress 2. That game is ruin my life almost. After my vacation I started to play a lot with my cousin. I felt that I am back to the rabbit hole again. I need some inspiration from somewhere. An good idea is go out to downtown and check stuff it usually lose a bit of thinking instead of TF2. I need to read something too or watch a movie. It didnt help when I am playing TF2 I need to lose a bit. Here is a crappy paint I did not have any idea anymore.
Its been a while posting my work since I have been in vacation, and after that it was hard to get back to were I ended. Well I need to slap my face hundred of times until I am happy with what I am doing now. Here is a new beginning of my work and I will continue paint as *****. Wish me luck!
I know that I focus on env and mech but this is also quite useful and good exercise of painting statues, females, skins all that stuff. And I usally hate soft brush but I love using it when it comes to skin. But sometimes I found out it is quite dangerous to use it too much. It become ugly so switching between soft and round I pretty get very far with it.
Sorry but it is a drug for me. When I dont paint more than 2-3 days I will get crazy even though I suck sometimes. But one thing I know is the more a paint the more I get better. So I am on a good way now. And I dont give a shit if my paint gets too corny or sux. I hate to finish half and finish the rest. I like more finish the whole set before I go to another. So here is a finish speedpaint. Doesnt matter what theme it is I just wanted to paint thats all.
This time I spend some few more hours to refine the pic. Actually the first hours was quite fun but after 3hours I started to get very bored of painting the same paint. And after that I started to see a lot of fails of the picture so I tried to refined it but got just worse. Now I know how boring it is to paint all the day on the same pic. But it is just something I have to ignore it and I think about it as an exercise and color study. Right now I am studying at Dylan Cole tutorials they are awesome!
Hey I need to get motivated on stuff at school. Things are getting tight now until summer vacation started to get closer now. So there things I need to finish as soon as possible. But I am taking my day off today. So here is a speedpaint I did for 30min. I am going home now!
After my workstation died I havent worked for a while maybe two weeks now. But now I got a new workstation at school but it has not the same equipment like the other one but same software and everything. I felt that I have to restart all my skills from zero. If u have seen heroes when u know what I mean. To evolve as an artist I have to skip my custom brushes and use another technique to work my way up. This might be the last one of using custom.
Hmm, well I soon find out the perspective over the colors I am working with. That was good our teacher taught us the palette concept. It seems that I need to study more on what color it is on objects and stuff to show how real it is. Well I need to practise a lot through my eyes and how the colors bounce through objects when the sunshine hit them. I feel that soon I am becoming more like an artist hehe. But it takes time to get there.
Hey, I tried to create a good quality tutorial video. And just testing the camstudio software. It works good. My teach helped me with some modifications. First rendering of the video was 21gb big LOL! So I managed to crank it down to 60mb. I will post up the video link of speedpaint tutorial as soon as youtube is finished with the upload.
