Dr. Fell

I do not like thee, Dr. Fell
The reasons why I cannot tell
But this I know, and know full well
I do not like thee, Dr. Fell

Tightened up the grenades, brightened the bandana and pushed the background further back.

more random 3d-ery

Just messing around ;)

Almost the end

Maybe one or two more updates left before next Saturday....

Sunday at lunchtime

Nearing the end of this sucker. I should really repaint the marine's hand, and detail the lemurs' hands a bit too.

Tomorrow is the last day I have budgeted for time to work on this, so I guess we're nearing the end ;)

Lemurs and Heads...

Couple of more hours into it.

When Lemurs attack..

Starting to work on the fur.

Jungle Crit Night - Starting on the soldier

Jungle initial background roughed in

Here's the jungle with some very rough impressionistic background added in.

Now to start playing with it in Photoshop.

and another render...

This is fun :)

Next steps in crit night

So first I pencilled, and then did a very very initial inking. I'm planning on painting over all the lines eventually, so not that worried about them. I then created a value painting using my cool grey Copic marker set.

From there, I applied very simple watercolour washes over the entire image to give the base colours. Because the paint is transparent, the values from the markers are largely maintained through this step.

doinking around with 3D again

Running the new computer through its paces with some rendering. Nothing terribly time consuming to setup, but it's kinda blowing my mind how much faster this thing is than the computer I was making my 3D comic on back in 2006-2007. This render would have taken at least 2 hours back then...

rough 3d sketch for my crit-night piece

Just laying in humanoids and getting a sense of perspective. Going to make my natives really short, they only come up to the humans' knees.
