I haven't posted, or even scanned, any of my pictures in a long time. I just now finally did that, and ended up scanning about 20 days worth. Unfortunately, I have no idea what order some of them are supposed to be in. I guessed their days, and saved them to my folder. Here are some of them:
There were so many I didn't want to really edit any of them. The last is a grid drawing of the friends' profile pictures who were online, if you're curious.
Besides the fact that this dude looks like a crack mugger who just injected heroin into his eyeballs, I added a lot of frustration into the composition. Most of the energy points down, besides a little bit escaping from his mohawk, which is just enough to balance the energy such that it rests around his eyes, such that the energy in it is really playing tug-of-war.
What? I told you he looked like a crack mugger who just injected heroin into his eyeballs! Did you not believe me? Haha!
I keep drawing and not bothering to post... nevertheless, I'm now posting day 38-41.
This is a gymnast who, in the photo, was holding himself up with two rings on ropes. Strong dude. Anyway, on the right side you see the underlying structure that I traced from the photo. On the left, the finished product that I traced on the structure.
Just a sketch of a female face. Since my scanner is back up, I did a graphite sketch. Unfortunately, the drawing didn't turn out real well. The eye of the viewer's left and the mouth are kinda messed up. I fixed it a bit with photoshop, but it's still messed.
I hope that you like it! I think that it's okay, but could be better... a good bit better.
This is going to have a bit more content than my average post, especially since all of it was created within the last 24 hours. The first sketch you'll see is something that I was drawing purely by description and suggested adjustment from a friend. I like it a lot, but it's not exactly like what the picture was "Supposed" to (not saying that it's incorrect.) Anyway, here is that:
I love the way that one came out; I think it's a really great work and I'm quite happy with it. Nevertheless, me and my friend both wanted me to do something that was closer to the original picture. So, using the original photo as a reference, I came up with the following. I'm going to post it as the sketch, then colored hair, then the almost finished one. There will be one more after these.
At this point, I'd basically finished it, but the lips were lacking correct color or any detail. So, finally, the finished version:
Thanks for viewing, I hope that you like this! Feedback would be very appreciated!
Future space soldier with awesome beastliness and pownage. I did this a while ago... I did it immediately (literally) after doing "Blackness." Here it are!
He has space-age armor plating equipped, a helmet, a ammo bag on his left thigh, his left arm is robotic (though I left the flesh sketch underneath the robot arm... *whistles*), and he has two pistols or submachine guns which he just dropped the clips out of to reload. OH! And the armor on his right arm has been mostly torn off. Don't mess with this guy.
Per suggestion of an awesome friend of mine, I have drawn an old-fashion style mobster with the whole trench coat/fedora/Thompson submachine gun (aka Tommy gun) deal going on. And without further adieu, here it is:
I'm not even going to mention day 2, but here's day 6:
It's from Star Trek: The Next Generation. It's a scene from "Imaginary Friend," Season 5 Episode 22. From left to right: Riker, Picard, Geordi, Data. They are looking out at an energy field cloud nebula thing from the ready room (aka meeting room).
Fifth day, I should be able to get the second up tomorrow with the seventh. I'm somewhat angry about things that I cannot do anything about, and also somewhat depressed due to that. Well, not anymore, but I was and that's where the emotion in this came from. The anger of the explosion is faded and blurred in memory by the sadness in the rain and questioning...
Here's an alternate version with everything behind the rain darkened:
I just got Photoshop Extended CS5, and I absolutely love it. Anyway, here's my first piece with it:
It is an abstract that I came up with before I got out of bed this morning. It's a bunch of people getting blasted out of a blurry black square into light, with blackness streaking past them. It can represent either God's saving man from the fall, but the emotion in it was more based off of man falling.
Hey... I've probably spent around ten hours on this now between yesterday and today. At least a couple of those were spent re-doing stuff that I did wrong, without elegance, and coping with "It's not a bug, it's a feature" moments, a couple of which I still haven't figured out how to operate the feature that acts like a bug.
In any event, this is the first decent 3D model that I've done to date, and I think it came out quite well. Though it does admittedly use more polygons than it needs, it's still decent (and that doesn't effect its looks anyways.) It is of an AUG A3, one of my favorite assault rifles made by the Austrian (not Australian) company "Steyr."
Without further adieu, here are some screenshots that I took of it (As usual, you can click on the pictures to see a high-detailed version.):
I hope that you like it, I sure do.
The name of the blogpost was not derived from it being a weapon, but from the hours of modeling this having destroyed my brain. Modeling takes a TON of critical thinking, creative problem-solving skills, etc.. This model, especially with the difficulties previously mentioned that I had, was really tiring.
