Harmony Character designs

Created using the web-drawing tool Harmony:  http://www.mrdoob.com/projects/harmony/

I think I like this more than Alchemy for "happy accident" drawing.

Ruined Bunker environment drawing

Random goblin character

My friend Sunny (http://grizzlyfrog.blogspot.com) showed my this website, http://mrdoob.com/projects/harmony to draw on...and I doodled out this goblin, which I then coloured and cleaned up a bit in photoshop.

City in the Steppes

Trying some of the techniques from Michael Yamada from yesterday's Daisho workshop, and working on my homework for my CGMA online architecture class.

This was a little over an hour of painting.

I'm going to try to do more on these before they are due (tomorrow evening), but here is my work to date for the first assignment:  Pagodas and Asian Architecture.

House in the Swamp

Another environmental sketch.  I think I may use this style for my next project...

First personal work in a while...

Played with drawing an environment, then did a quick colouring job.

Scaring Off the Locals

In the mad dash to finish up everything for my pitch document, which I'm off to print this evening.  Here is the finished(?) version of the painting I started yesterday, I spent about another hour on it.

One more painting.

So, I was reading through my pitch document, and I felt like it needed one more painting...so I did this in about 3 hours this afternoon.  Hopefully, I'll have some time to clean it up before I drop the whole thing off at the printer tomorrow evening.

Downed Shuttle - Next Pass

Added some obvious damage from the crash, tightened up the BG and gave Juan a once-over render pass.

Max Redesign

The one I posted yesterday wasn't working for me...I guess I needed to finish it to see that it wasn't finished ;)  I went back to the drawing board last night, banged out about 20 variations, and now I'm trying this one.

Discovering the Downed Shuttle - Rough compositional draft

For those of you who listen to Chris Oatley - I defeat the texture monster with FOG!!!

Characters Cell Shaded

Cleaned up the line work and cell shaded the main characters from my animation pitch.

Character painting - further exploration.

I think (hope?) the story is starting to come through.

Character painting

Definitely outside my comfort zone, a close up reaction shot.  In-process.

Leaving the Village revision

Tightening up the painting, and (obviously) taking the characters from silhouette to something approaching rendering ;)

Just under an hour

Start of yet another painting for my animation pitch.  Playing with more photo textures than I sometimes do.

The base work is complete on my Aztec team for Outwitters.

Now it's time for variations and revisions...

Initial lineup for my Aztec concepts for Outwitters

Gotta clean up the linework and finish coloring tomorrow.
