Black Mage Redesign Ver 2.0

Didn't like the old concept for my Black Mage redesign so I made this one :) . Played with the proportions more and tried to add better lighting and environmental effects. Still not 100% happy with it but I think its an improvement.

Some of you might already know about this, but apparently Autodesk gives away free downloads of its programs to anyone still in school or currently unemployed: http://students.autodesk.com/. The free software includes the newest versions of Maya, 3DsMax, Mudbox, Softimage and loads more.

Of course these are for educational use only and the license lasts for 36 months, but still not bad for free :) .

Red Head

Drawn from life, 2 hours in photoshop. I feel like I'm getting faster (yay!), but I'm still struggling with the same old bad habits :P .

Painting done from my friend's wedding photo :) . It really is a lot harder to draw people you know.

Edit: Eye color corrected as suggested by the painting's subject. I think it looks much better now.

BB Hood Progress

A paintover of my roughly textured model. Mostly was just trying to figure out how the hair will go and trying out different color options. The hair and eyelashes are painted but the skin is basically unaltered polypainting.

After taking a long break from working on my character I'm getting back into it again :) .

Done from life, 6 hrs. I think I'm getting faster at these but still feel like I could have pushed this one further.

I know, for a subject named Magenta I didn't use much of that color lol.

Quick sketch, done in a little under 2 hours in photoshop. Unforunately I hadn't set up photoshop yet, so a lot of time went towards that. My first time having a ex pro-wrestler as a model :) .

I had a good vacation, but I'm back and will my best to be more productive/update more often.

Larine, Blake and Rocky

First one was done from life, of my friend that runs the life drawing sessions I go to. The life drawing model for that day didn't show up so she was nice enough to pose for us :) .

Second one is from a photo of a friend that was posted on the "Draw from what you look like" thread on conceptart.org. Both took a little over an hour each. It was kind of fun painting people I know :) .

Still a work in progress, but I think I'm getting close. Next up will be posing, lighting and maybe adding his blunderbuss :D .

Another photoshop life drawing, this time of a long pose.

Noticed the colors look totally off on certain monitors, unforunately I don't think theres much I can do do about it.

Another life painting...

Done in about an hour and a half, I lost track of time which is why sections of it aren't really refined :P . Full color paintings to come soon.

Fishy Guy

Game model I'm working on, started in Future Poly's ZBrush Character Modeling class. The first image is the current ZBrush sculpt, while the second is texture progress on the normal mapped low poly model. There's still a lot to be done but at the moment I'm kind of liking how he is turning out :) .

Character design by Sean Andrew Murrey: http://www.seanandrewmurray.com/ . Comments and critiques welcome like always.

Quick Sculpt

Have been playing around in ZBrush 4 lately, and am really enjoying all the new brushes and features :D .

Skull sculpt is from a while ago, but I'll post some new stuff soon.
