old Bugalugs the giant...

A fun sketch in ZBrush over the weekend.  Bugalugs was the first name I could think of, but i imagined him being a tad tipsy at the point of this study!  I might do a colour up version, red nose and all :)
I haven't had maya on my new machine, so rendered this on my old machine (which chugged and moaned a lot!) but I miss doing renders like this, so am gettin me mah copy running again!  I think of Maya as my photography studio now, where zbrush and photoshop I use mainly for concept illustrations, getting the most out of ZBrush.  But for me, I really like doing set ups in maya/mentalray for presenting form studies this way.

Another throw away alien head.  Mucking around at work, when i probably shouldn't  ;)  I've always loved Steve Wangs fish head designs and this one is totally inspired by them!  I find his forms totally inspiring with the simplicity in their basic structure but complexity in surface detail.  This is NO WHERe near that.  But I had fun breaking away from fantasy for a bit  :)

This looks set to be an interesting game!  Artwork featured is from a number of artists around the world with different genre's and styles all combined into one game!  Great way to use it I say!  Here are a couple of my pieces featured, but there are tons more, please feel free to help out on Kickstarter to take it all the way!

Alien Monkeys...

.... are fun to do!  I created this guy as a test for a demo I'm going to be doing soon.  I tried to record a video through ZBrush but ended up being a bit messy, next one will come out and I'll design something a little more exciting than a colourful monkey... although I call him an alien!  The video making process has become very easy in Zbrush and look forward to actually getting it right soon!  The record history states is going to be very handy. 
I will be doing 2 tutes soon one covering my maquette methods for 3D conceptualizing and the other creating conceptual art using Zbrush and Photoshop in a couple of hours like this guy.
Thanks for takin a look :P
