Same routine: anim8or, bryce, picassaWhat is it? You tell me.
This is Michael and Abby falling asleep while Susanna reads them a story.
I like this because it reminds me of an impressionist painting.
These are some birds I modeled for a previous project, I did some messing around in picassa.
I gave this to my sister Bethanie for her birthday. There is another drawing of it here.These are some thoughts I wrote after drawing it:Once again I realize that I must draw as a person and not as a machine, that choosing a point of view from which to draw the tree is important, and that I can draw this tree much better then other trees because I know it, and I know it because I love it. (I grew up in, under and around it). Or perhaps I love it because I know it. Can you know truly with out also loving?
photoshop on a friends computer.
I kind of like the dessert look.
I had some fun last night making this. I originally was modeling an umbrella in anim8or and it turned in to this structure. This is a WIP, but I like it. Next I want to nail the composition and leave nothing to chance as I usually do. This was also the longest render-time I've had in Bryce in about 7 years at 11 hours:I rendered it out big (5000 by 2500) and did minor color correction in OpenCanvas. Here are some actual-size details:Also, before I imported the model into bryce, I did some playing around with a printscreen of the wire frame producing this, which looks a lot like my old green glass aesthetic of Vynclif.
anim8or, bryce and picassa
Fun in bryce and anim8or.
anim8or, bryce, opencanvas Then my computer crashed. Oh well, I need to model more then one mushroom anyway, all these are duplicates.
Inspired by Arkady Roytham's beautiful sketchbooks and Mark Kennedy's inciteful sketching exhortations (parts 1,2,3 and 4 they are well worth a read!) I've started sketching all the more. I picked up a small moleskine at B&N but it was already full 5 days later, but it's great because they fit in my jeans pocket. I also started keeping a sketchbook on my dashboard to sketch at lights and in traffic. That way when I'm in houston at 5:30pm it's a win-win situation. Drawing cars also seems to be a way to learn design. You get inside the designer's head, why this line? See how this mirrors that. I suppose it's the same with nature too.
These are some Zombie illustrations I did recently for an online novel. Not having the drawing skills to draw a zombie outright, I mined my sketchbooks for people family members and friends I could modify into zombies. I then imported these as planes into bryce and made dystopian environments. I also used trees and cars form my sketchbook and pulled the telephone poles from a previous project. I was pretty happy with the above, as it was all made from scratch. I have also found Picassa great for certain kinds of post work. The bottom two use photos I took + the zombies.
Drawn while my car got it's oil changed.
This is an image I'm working on for the photojojo T-shirt contest. I was originally going to do typography made out of cameras, but when I lined up an oTo, it looked like eyes.(modeled in anim8or, composed and rendered in bryce)
Ok, so at night it was kind of easy, but in the daytime, it's alot harder, I think I should prepare a limited color pallet before beginning.I should also start with a larger, more accurate line drawing.
So, inspired by James Gurney's post on Serial Painting (his blog is a truly awesome resource for illustrators btw.), I'm going to do quick paintings of the view from my window at different times of day and in different conditions of weather. This is the first. Check out Nathan Fox's amazing series out his office window here.
I did these a few weeks ago using only my left hand. It was a great exercise, I was impressed w/ the results. Basically it forced me to observe all the more vilagently and not fall back on muscle memory and bad habits. These were of friends, and they were so intense that I don't think I could do this sort of drawing in coffee shops w/ strangers, but I'll have to try.I also did some quick underpainting w/ openCanvas w/ my right hand:
Please give me feedback on these studies.
Painted in OpenCanvas, which I think I'm about to purchase, as it would make a good poor (or honest) man's photoshop/painter. Somewhat inspired by the illustrator Istvan Banyai.
(Modeled in Anim8or, rendered in Bryce, adjusted in photoshop)I think before I try to create fantastic beasts I should spend a good deal of time modeling created fantastic beasts, like beetles ( and camels, snails, and turtles) In doing so perhaps I can glean some of the Trinity's boundless entomological aesthetic. God seems to have made more beetles then any other living creature. The annie dillard in me tells me I should ponder this next time I worship at church. What kind of God makes 5,000,000 different species of beetles? Isn't that a bit inordinate? Most girls certainly seem to think so.While I was modeling this, at one point it was going to be a beetle, so I did some internet searching and found what looks to be an great book:Also check out this awesome website full of photo reference.
This was fun. Possibly the same city as the middle painting here.I've been wanting to get back into digital painting, but about a year ago I lost my old Painter Classic cd. This was made in an expired trial of openCanvas, printscreened into MS Paint to save. I think I might buy it sometime.
Did this while eating at Pita Pit. It's nice to finally have a laptop. Yes, I'm way-over using the depth of field, but it's fun.
This is part of the remains of the Phonebooth project I was working on at the end of the spring.
This was fun, I made it up while animating.
These, as weird as it sounds, were made in Bryce.
Testing out Bryce on my new Vista laptop, it works, which is great, but that will be about 1 out of 6 old programs I use that work on vista. Caleb, if your out there make them fix it. ;)
More library sketches.These people seem to be here every time I sketch.
After eating Panda Express, with the help of a few more forks.
Usually outdoors with my sister Abby, or at the Corpus Library, which is a great place to draw people standing up.
