Mckenna likes sea turtles . . .

So a little girl in my Bible study declares I'm supposed to draw something for her. I ask her mother what she likes . . . she likes sea turtles . . .

There are a lot of things I like about it . . . I'd like to try and do
the head and right side of the shell again.

As a funny side note, she's been practicing how to snorkel in her bath tub . . . apparently the proper term is "gorkeling" . . . it's been a long time since I practiced snorkeling in the bath tub . . .

Art in the form of: website!

Sorry for no art posts recently. I've been working on a website for a friend's motorcycle business. I'll post the URL when its live. I hope to get it wrapped up very soon so I can get back to my portfolio work.

Fun snapshots of the work in progress

These are quick renders without UV colors and textures created yet. I used Maya materials for quick color placement.

Catapult in training . . . not quite ready for war

This is a work in progress. I've yet to finish the metal and do the Normal maps.

Spore inspiration

Here are a number of creatures I created in a game called Spore. I had a hoot. One day I think I'll use them as inspiration to create my own in Maya. Tell me which one is your favorite.

Rhino version 2

I feel him having bigger shoulders, forearms, hands and belly is closer to the original sketch. I like him better.

Fish Monger's shop version 1

It's going to go through a lot of changes yet.

Rhino Character version 1

This is my first attempt at my Rhino character. I've made him too human like, I need to return back to my original sketch (posted on March 10th). He's going to be the fish monger in my fish monger scene.

My website has been updated . . . wahoo!

I hired Jeremy of Creative 3 Productions to make a cool Flash gallery. Once that was done, I was able to completely overhaul the site (www.paulfc.com). I like it much better now.

Portfolio version 1 - No Epic models yet . . .

Because of a possible job opportunity, I've rushed this short portfolio out. My plan in April is to get the epic models done.

Planning for Monsterrrsssss!!!!!

These are some initial monster sketches I'm working on for a portfolio scene I hope to complete within a month.

I totally dig the Rhinoman!

I also really liked the little dude by the Rhinoman's snout above. This guy to our left is further development of that little thumbnail. Right now, I think I don't want to deal with hair so I'm going to have to think up an alternative.

Steampunk Gear

Our class is working on a level and this is a part I was assigned to texture and color. I textured in ZBrush and colored in Photoshop.
