Scuttler 2.

Decided to have another go at creating these little scuttler creatures, I remember my friend telling me the hardest thing to create for character design is an enviroment for it to go into which is quite true.

Saw this scuttling across a field of blue mushrooms in my imagination. I love painting with blue colours at the moment, hope its not the same as the sadness in Picasso's blue period.

Domincs Work.

My friend Dominic has recentley graduated from a BA Hons degree at Leeds University in the UK. Hes a fine artist who specialises in the grotesque and other macabre subject matter, over the last few years he has begun to experiment with oil paints and has had a lot of success using them.

Dominic regularily updates his blog which can be found here: Dominics Blog

Silly Men.

 Needed a break from doing pure concept design so tried doing a little bit of character sketching with absolutely no context.

which one works better though? colour or black and white.

Ugly Beasty.

Some more thumbnails and sketches, trying to flesh this guy out a little more both in movement and personality. Ive been looking at real life animals like dart frogs and rhacodactylus geckos.

On the Ice.

Beginning to use photo's as a basis for quick concepts as more of a necessity now than a curious experiment. Im quite busy now working on the concept project that I mentioned about after FMX, with most of my free time going towards this project it doesnt really leave me with the time to develop any of my own ideas so Im using this as a opportunity to see how well I can create the primitive stages of a concept development in a small amount of time.

This is carrying on with the idea generation for a fuel rig type structure on a foregin planet in the future.

Speedy Paint.

 Just some quick paints and photo manipulations, having a go at fleshing out an idea for a university project next year, keeping things quite simple and smooth atm.

Rana Beasty.

Trying out a bit of orthographics for this critter I did a few months ago, Sarah mentioned having these creatures as mini pets and its made me want to realise this one in 3D, as a physical model.
