My first full Zbrush EXTRAVAGANZA!!

Wow, been a ride for sure! This She-Centaur has had her time with evolving and giving me loads of problems but I am glad that I have this project all together from start to finish under my belt... So this is what concept design is like.

TO THE FUTURE! weeeeeeEEEeeeeeeeeeEEEeeE! 
(also I haven't slept for a while). 

I feel like she's saying, "GUUUURRRRLL..."

3d Model in Zbrush and Photoshop painting. Time: Too long.

CDA is amazing, I feel like I've seen the light!

Moar Oil Paintin's!

Hey guys! 

Here's some more painting studies for my class, they're the easiest to show because I have to do two (roughly) per week. Other updates soon for my Zbrush sculpt(s) and Character stuff!!

My Sargent copy (kinda) on the left 6hrs?, Sargent's Dorothy on the right. 
Looks a little rosy from the iPhone pic, and with a limited palette.

Here's another figure painting, with the same palette.
(Titanium White, Cad Yellow Med, Cad Red Med, Alizarin Crimson, Ultramarine Blue)

Last but not least we did a double study of the same model, high key/low key. 
Same palette, a little less than 1.5 hrs for each?

Digital painting practice!

 I know I am in need of some digital painting help so I did some studies, the first two are from life and the second from tumblr photos (hehe). I figure it's still okay to paint from photos if they're awesome ones, right? Right?!

These are still pretty loose and dirty, just trying to find
 that traditional feel in digital... one day. One day.

Pasadena why you so pretty????

 C'mon seriously, this lighting is too guud.

She is not amused.

California is a magical place! Still! Here's a little update on what kind of stuff I'm doing in my classes. For character design, we just revised our pirate heads, and made a (somewhat polished) full cast! We moved onto a new project featuring the tale of Baba Yaga, I'll give more info later but here are some character ideas for that...and more oil paintings! First color oil painting in like four/five years. Was sort of terrifying but so much fun!
Character Ideas...


 Trying to consolidate designs and add form.
 Another painting of my roomie Carla!

And some more model studies. 

I will give you an idea of my Zbrush stuff once I'm further along this week! It's a centaur sculpt (that kicked my ass.)  I'll revisit stuff later too :)
