Term 1 Update

Term 1 has just swept by in a blink of an eye. Within in 2 months we covered quite a bit of materials and i learned tremendously. From life drawing to character design, modeling to texturing. I feel I learn more stuff in this 2 months than in my last year of self learning. Anyway, here are some of my stuff.

First up, modeling. This is the last assignment for 3D modeling and we are supposed to do up some biorobotic character. I design a dinorobot thingy which have robotic arms and legs. Its central torso is also robotic and it houses a few fighter pods which gatling gun mounted on it. Dont mind the ridiculous pose it is in :P

Next up is composition. Majority of the compositional works are done on paper. Only the last one is done digitally. Here the teacher pass us a paragraph from a novel and we are supposed to pick a scene and do up a composition on it. I still find it difficult to apply color to my drawing as shown. I am still not proficient in shading digitally and I find my work have a sense of incompleteness to it. Well more practice !


Next up is sculpture. This one is pretty exciting for me because this is my first time at it. We are supposed to do up any thing we desire as long it is half body. I basically design a alien looking character which some sort of tentacles at his head. I must say, the process of sculpting is so involved and hands on that it feels pretty good doing it. You have a great sense of directness but of cos a great deal of control is needed. I believe i did a good job considering it is my first try. Anyway the color you see on the picture is done digitally. I am still in the process of coloring it with acrylic (with little success though).

All right. This last one (above right picture) is not part of the school stuff. It is just a picture i did for someone who is designing a d20 game setting called Farland. This particular picture is for their bestiary page, and for a creature called Aldran Giant. Interesting project and I guess I will continue doing more picture for him. It is good practice for me.
