Yet again I start a new project before finishing an old one. Watched Corpse Bride again this weekend. Character design and overall look of the film was beautiful, it’s too bad the story wasn’t there. Not even Vincent Price could have saved this film, rest his soul. I guess you can’t win’em all. This is about one and a half hours modeling.

Animation has consumed my life for some time now, relatively recently there is something I have noticed. Modeling comes naturally to me, more than animation. I still have a lot to learn in both disciplines. I love creating creatures as much as giving them life. So with that in mind here is what I am currently modeling for fun. I’m going for photo-real; I want it to hold up next to a photograph. I am currently working on maps, texture, displace, bump, spec, shine, are what I have planned for this bad boy. I’m still getting up to speed on Z Brush so the displacement for this will still be done by hand in the shop.

I have been going to an open figure drawing studio here in Oak Park for a few months now. It’s not an instructional class, but more a chance for local artist to sketch a live model. This week we had a great model unfortunately I was not in the zone, and didn’t walk out with anything I’m happy with. I’m still glad I went, you never know when you will have a good day or bad, sometimes it comes out easier. So in lieu of today’s events I am posting an image from 2 weeks ago that I think came out better. Also now people who are not registered can comment.
