So CGMeetUp posts a lot of animation reels and I saw this one that I really like. I’m a big fan of in game animations and cut scenes from games. I also like the blocky style that is shown here and I want to replicate that in some of my own models. I realise that this can cause issues with mesh colliding, it takes away from the realism and it’s a low polygon count that isn’t smoothed however I like that style. I guess I find hard edges in models and animations very appealing.
So just sketching and trying to draw more from life, also been using a site called pixielovely suggested to me by Rebecca from our class. It shows timed life drawing models. I’s really helpful and its good to use for a warm up. I also decided to do some anatomy drawings to try and get a grip on the human form more.
So after a lot of thought and consideration for what I was going to draw today I finally concluded that I was stumped. I had nothing. So since I’m so in love with Star Wars and I’m still pumped with Star Wars episode 7 hype I decided to draw Darth Vader.
Okay so today I was reminded of a conversation i had with my girlfriend last night about Raccoons. Needless to say I was reminded of Rocket Raccoon from Guardians of the Galaxy. Awesome movie, dressed up as Starlord for Halloween, loved it.
I also did one with a more colourful background
Shockingly I actually did a sketch today not some unfinished painting. Today’s sketch is of Malcolm Reynolds, Captain of the ship Serenity in one of the greatest shows ever Firefly which was unjustly cancelled.
If you haven’t watched I suggest you do, and also watch the movie Serenity after it’s also amazing
So today I reminiscing about games that I love and then I remembered a game with one of my favourite art styles ever. Borderlands 2. So my sketch-but-not-really-a-sketch was sorted.
Again not yet finished but currently working on it
So today after seeing star wars I had to dedicate something to it so i did a sketch of The Battle of Jakku, unfortunately now I’ve gotten carried away and started to paint it, it’s not finished yet but here’s the current state
The original is from Star Wars Battlefront
