Speed Sculpts

I've been doing lots of lowpoly stuff. This tends to kill the creative spirit, so here are a few fast and messy creatures for your eyeballs. Each of these guys took between an hour or two.

Modeling from the past Semester

The first few images are a replication of the El Cid statue that stands in front of The Palace of the Legion of Honor in San Francisco. It was a touch ambitious but I hadn't ever sculpted a horse, so I went for it. I'll add more complete renders of it later when I have a chance to pull up this monstrosity in Zbrush. I can't possibly begin the sheer amount of time I spent on this bad boy. As a final goes, this was one of the toughest. Thanks Shon. hahaha

These are from my Organic 2 class with Jon. Much less technically demanding but a time sink nonetheless. He had us do lots of random heads to warm up for the midterm. Mr. Weaving here was very interesting and I plan on cleaning him up at some point.

This was my final and also chewed up a ton of time. The turntable alone took ages and ages. Made me late too as I recall. Naturally I didn't realise how many things I could have streamlined/ect ect until it was far too late. Needless to say this guy has a lot more to go through before I'll consider him done.

Creature Design with Terryl Whitlatch

These are roughly in chronological order from my creature design class with Terryl Whitlatch. We had a week for each assignment. I'd say each one of the real animal sheets topped out around 15 hours and the creature designs anywhere between 15 to 20 hours to complete. The dinos were my favorite to both paint and design.

GDC and Updates

Hey guys, massive update due soon once I catch up with all my work. Getting through GDC will help too. Speaking of which, GDC is awesome! It's definitely been an eye opening experience meeting all these industry pros. Even got to meet and talk to the Art Director of the Santa Monica branch of SCEA. Those are the guys who handle the God of War franchise, fyi. We'll see how the rest of it goes!
