@ work they brought in a model once a week for some life drawing, also providing tips and instructions by one of their lead concept artists. All figures are done in 18″ x 24″ newsprint. Some are done in charcoal and compressed charcoal, and watered down indian ink and brush. Most poses were a minute or less.. some 2 minutes. Very very few were 5mins.

Was cleaning out an old hard drive and stumbled upon a pathetic excuse of a 3D model. The story behind it is that when I was going to the Art Institute of Seattle, I had pretty much given up on 3D, thinking it wasn’t for me, but still took the classes to graduate. I took an Unreal Engine mod class, where several of us were grouped together and were tasked with making our own level. I was assigned as the texture artist, which I was down for, but the modeling side started to bottle neck. Despite my warnings, my team had asked me to model some buildings and the end result was frightening… and yet.. STILL PASSABLE FOR THE CLASS. O…M…G.

Anyway, swearing off 3D for the rest of my career I ended up going back to it for various reasons explained in my FuturePoly and FuturePri posting.

Ok, I’ve made this story longer than it has to be, but bottom line… the results of then and now are not only hysterical.. it’s down right shocking. The craziest part is the buildings have strong similarities as if I was trying to make the same building but with extremely different skill levels. The renders are even facing the same way!!! WOAH! Enjoy the good laugh… I know the boys at FuturePoly did 😉

Oh, and btw.. my 3D portfolio can be viewed by clicking the link to the right under the Blogroll that says “Priscilla’s 3D Portfolio!”

Finally got around to making a time lapse video of the Miss Fortune painting that I entered for a League of Legends art contest.

Some friends got me into this little contest that was held by the guys that made League of Legends. The contest was to make an entry that was pirate themed in celebration for their new character “Miss Fortune.” Originally, a friend of mine wanted to do a collab proj; I would make the concept and he would model it in 3D, then I would be the one to texture it. Well, unfortunately his computer kicked the bucket and I decided just to paint on top of my original concept and enter it anyway. Because I am a master at procrastination I didn’t start painting it till this afternoon, even though the deadline was at midnight tonight. So, with that said the paint job was a little rushed but I still like how it looks. Might need some polishing up later or something.
