Next step is finding a good print service place with decent prices.
And this was it. It's bronze memento immortalizing a fallen friend.
I still have alot I plan to do to it. I still want to tighten up some areas and learn how to do poly-painting and fancy lighting and rendering.
I have a lot more process shots from earlier steps. But it would be too much to be posting them every other day.
In the end I'll choose the best images of each step and put together some kind of time lapse picture.
My idea was to do something similar to the scene in the first episode of The Venture Bros when Brock kills Speedy when he's all shot up full of tranquilizer darts. I didn't want to do Samson lieing passed out on the ground choking Speedy like in the scene, I wanted to spice it up. He's still going to be riddled with darts though.
This here is a test model of the face. just to see if i could make it recognizable and accurate. Also wanted to see if I could keep some of the cartooniness as well.
And here's the actual pose coming along with some progress shots.
I'm feeling the first and second one best. I especially like the contrast in the first one. But, the third one seems to be popular because of all the color. Especially since the linework isn't all black.
I might still play around with it and see if i can come up with more versions with different color schemes.
That is until i came up with making a nice fashion illustration of a girl wearing her hair as clothes. But not simply covering herself with her hair like a cliche, but an actual dress out of hair. I wanted to see if i could make it almost like an illusion were you go "Hey that dress is kinda funny looking... Oh! it's her hair!". Maybe to make people do a bit of a double take.
In the end it's not much of a dress, more like a long night gown. I guess I got too caught up in making it look sexy.
I'm going to add some color on top of the line work in Photoshop, im going to try and add it in a way that it doesnt take away from the inking.
Also I named her Rapunzel after a week of working on it and it finally dawned on me that thats pretty much who I've been drawing. Some kind of sexy, naked Rapuzel.
This is a composite of a quick build of the Earthworm Jim head with the body suit. I'll post a close up of just the head when I put a bit more work into it.
But, the model is getting there. Just a few more hours of modeling the head and body and then maybe touching up the pose a bit. I'm not sure what that'll be yet.
Mostly I've been using it to procrastinate on my real illustration work. I'd call it Productive Procrastination. Although quite a bit of this one was modeled when the internet was down and I couldn't really work on my actual assignments. Strange how reliant we've become of the internet.
