Lowpoly Boss & Final Projects

I finished my Boss character's lowpoly, and rigged him for animation.

His WIP high-poly sculpt:

Final lowpoly contact sheet:

Planning to re-do this turn-around with his ornaments on him.

Here are some other final projects I had in 3D - a Robert Downey Jr. caricature bust, and a quick griffon teapot sculpt I did for practice. 3D really fell by the wayside this semester with Pre-Pro for Thesis and DFA, since my thesis is the main thing I'll be working on all next year. I'm excited for it 8D I'll post a bit more about my thesis project later, but most of it has to be kept secret until it's finished.

WIP Sculpt:
I finished the textures for him in a couple hours, not very satisfied with it, but maybe I'll come back to it another day.

Boss Character

Almost done with the Boss assignment, I have to finish up for GDC. I started off with a completely different concept for my Boss from DFA, but decided I wanted to do a more creature-like boss character than human-like, so I made a new character.

My first DFA concept:

And here's my new concept, which I roughed out in a couple quick sketches:

Some of the 3D process, sculpting in ZBrush:

And the almost-finished high-poly:

Some 2D Stuff

I didn't post a couple of my projects I had wanted to from last semester, but I may still post them later. For now, here's some 2D stuff I've done in the last few months.

This guy is from last semester's Game Design project "Imagine a World." I worked in a group and we created a world we nicknamed "Sky Whales," and these creatures fly around defending the main boss creatures while the player is trying to take them down.

A couple still-lives from my Observational Painting class this semester.

The main character of my story in my Children's Book Illustration class, Vera the Goblin. It's been fun doing some cutesy stuff again 8]  The book's going to be about 28 pages, so I may post more from it when it's finished.

Some environment sketches done in my sketchbook for DFA's Blue Sky project. I did a couple digital environment studies too, but I'm not very happy with them yet. Gotta keep practicing!

I'll make another post soon updating with 3D stuff. We've been working on our Boss characters lately, so that'll come next 8)  Most of this semester I've been working on Pre-pro thesis pitches though, so I have a lot of work I can't show from that. At the end of the year I'll make a post with some art from whatever pitch idea gets chosen, though 8>

Fantastic Environment - Dishonored Inspired

I went back and polished up my Fantastic Environment over winter break as well, but don't have the matinee video fly-through finished yet. I'll post it up when it's done 8)
