River Ment. Nomads.

I shud have my uni head on now but i felt an urge yesterday to dabble about sketching huts for my nomad concept. It went on from there and i decided to do a little google sketch up progect and build an actual camp on the river ment so that i can use it for screen shots as reference for paintings.

Blue Tit.

Did a painting of a Blue Tit as a card for Sarah's auntie's bday.

Didnt have access to a printer on the day so had to use that stuff called traditional media, need to paint more by hand.

Redundant Material.

Last week we went into uni for briefing on what we'd be doing this semester. Eager to start as soon as I could I began doing some concepts whilst the brief was still unfinalised. Today we found out that we'd be skipping the conceptual stage and focusing on Maya production with the aim of moving into the Crisis engine.

These were concepts for a laboratory.

Went to my local art shop the other day for supplies and found some slightly cheaper mole skin type sketch books for sale, Ive been curious about Moleskin but spending more than a fiver on a sketch book has always been an 'alien concept' to me (what a terrible pun about concept art).

Anyway these were 3 quid for two very small sketchbooks so i gave them a try. Saw a sketchbook showcase in ImagineFX this month with Mike Corriero in it. He's one of my faviorite creature designers. Anyway he'd done this things were he asked for peeps on facebook to name an animal for him and he took the first three entries and blended them into one creature design.

I had a go at this and got Sarah to name three animals. American Beaver, Vampire Bat and Emperor Dragon Fly. I ended with something almost cute..

Warcraft 2

War Craft 2 had the best generic Orcs ive ever seen. brilliant game full of character.

Over the holidays Ive been steadily working away in my little sketch book dedicated to the redesigning of Orcs, Trolls and goblins. At the moment id say that im heaviley influenced by Hayao miyazaki and Paul bonner, both are very unique individuals in their own seperate ways. miyazaki a master of asian culture and Bonner the nordic europe.
