Fieldside Crane

I went back to San Jose during the Xmas holiday and went out to Tahoe mountain to snowboard. During the car ride I saw this image when I was on the road. A crane standing in a wet field.

I had a dream about this scene last night and had this urge to just pour it out of my mind.

Though the setting may not be the same, I want that dark damp feeling to be expressed through the sketch.

Rhinocentaur Contn...

I started to realize I know too little about 3D production as I am working on this model. There are a lot of technical barriers blocking me from just going straight forward. The contest will be due soon sadly I won't be able to complete it.
I am still working on it every day though and will try to complete this model before Feb 28 when the official dominance war 5 starts up.

Since I am not doing this for the contest. I can finally, finally bring this model into Zbrush4 to continue sculpting! Right now I just want to get the hind legs and hands completed in Mudbox, then retopologize in Topogun and bring the high res model from Mudbox along with the newly retopologized low res model from Topogun into Zbrush for projection.

I hope I have the right idea...

ZING! Intel i7 950 loaded with 24gig of DDR3 PC1600 Ram and Geforce GTX470. (thanks to black friday cheap computer hardware sales)

Finally can get back on track with the competition after the holidays! Can't wait to see what new things I will be able to learn and achieve with this new Rig!

Rhinocentaur - CGHUB Warrior Contest WIP

I am currently participating in the CGhub's Warrior Contest.
Currently learning Mudbox as I go along, so far so good. Mudbox is not as powerful as Zbrush but it's user interface is very noob friendly.

Except mudbox saves out 1gig to 2gig per file save...which is a bummer on my HD space...

Need to upgrade my PC to be able to handle 3D...My current system is 6 years old...

I owe a lot of gratitude and thanks to Jordan, Tom, and Ben for helping me push this image as far as it is now. There is still more room to push, which I will shortly after I finish moving to a new city.

Section 8 DLC stuff

Section 8 DLC got released a couple months ago. I was responsible for designing the theme and mood for the "Hornet's Nest" level. Which was a massive military missile base hidden within a canyon. I had the wonderful opportunity to design every capture point exteriors and interiors, as well as props.

Getting close

I recently just finished remaking the mesh for the lumbars. The previous version was obviously way wrong haha.

Getting close on finishing this guy!

Still gotta figure out how to create good alpha brushes to import into zbrush....

I've been playing around with more matte painting sketches. This piece is just another random doodle that somehow solidified itself.

Messing Around

Playing with custom brushes.

2 different versions. I like the widescreen aspect, but I like the colored one too.

Dr Sketchy Houston

Life drawing session with kinky knitting is the theme today.
She was wearing knitting pins on her hair, knitted costumes and green face paint so I thought it would be fitting to draw her in a tribal theme.

scanner does not do water colour justice.

Skybox Matte Paintings

Bunch of multiplayer sky boxes I did for Section 8.
