Mind Bullets

Finally figured out modelling in Maya about 3 days ago and I’m working on Zbrush, so I might just be employable pretty soon here. I’ll have some of that to post in a few days. In the mean time here’s a portrait of a pretty lady I know. I painted it to try out Photoshop color swatches I sampled from Windsor Newton’s website. It makes the transition from traditional the digital a little less jarring to be able to use the same colors I’m used to.

Figure X: The One Where I Stop Numbering Them

I should probably post more than these weekly sessions. I’ll figure something out. I also just noticed I haven’t used twitter in about a decade.

Figure VIII and IX: Nothing Cleanses Quite Like Fire

It’s been a while since I posted here, but I haven’t been idle. Here is some of the work from my past few figure sessions. Going to try to get back into doing new portfolio pieces now, so hopefully I’ll have more to post about soon.

Figure VI and VII: There And Back Again

These are from 2 separate sessions at Satyricon. The first 7 were with the model from the previous week. She’s a ballerina and so we got a great set of gestures from her. The last 5 are from this past Thursday. I chose to bring my laptop again for this one, and I think they turned out pretty well. I’m going to try to branch out to other figure sessions within the next few days and I’ll post any work I come up with.
