DONE! 

Calling it a wrap on this one.  Newest one for the portfolio.  Concept by Edwin Huang, modeled, textured, rigged, etc by me.  Rendered in Toolbag2 (dat PBR).  

Also… if anyone is in need of a character artist, hit me up at Gerald@tunnel-vision.net.  Looking to relocate.

Issue of the day: Bringing it all together..

So I put the “finishing” touches on the sculpt of Dr. King Schultz.  I put final in quotes, because I KNOW I’m going to make some tweaks when I go to pose him and model his rifle (tis the nature of sculpting is suppose).  Despite that, I really the progression of his clothes as a whole.  I must’ve gone over each item of clothing 6 or 7 times before I was satisfied.  

Once he’s posed, I’ll be taking crazy res closeup shots for ye old portfolio.  


Issue of the Day:  Raising my own bar. 

I got some feedback from some pretty important people and spent the last week doing my best to meet the standards  I spent the better part of this weeks doing cloth study after cloth study trying to find a way to make it more readable.  There are a lot of tweaks I’d like to make before moving on to the overcoat, but this is the third all-nighter in a week and I’m pretty tired.  I’ll be hitting this again hard tomorrow.

Issue of the Day:  Making time for projects

Recently I watched Django: Unchained and really enjoyed it.  I enjoyed Christoph Waltz’s performance as Dr. King Schultz so much that I wanted to make his character.  I love his inverness style coat, so I’m making that too.  Will definitely be updating with more later.

Issue of the Day:  The internet was out!

A few weeks back, the internet went out at my apt.  While quelling boredom, my roommate and I were going through his random concept folder and found a whole lot of shields.  I was challenged to make the above shield from concept to game ready in a day.  Challenged accepted.  

approx 18 hours

Issue of the Day: Time to make crossbow
Here is the 95% final texture of the Demonhunter.  Once I get the crossbows done, I&#8217;ll get back to more texturing.  What do you guys think?

Issue of the Day: Getting excited for texturing
After my failed attempt at doing Guild Wars armor, I decided to try something a little more&#8230; Blizzard-y.  Been working on this for a little while and I&#8217;m finally finished&#8230; with the armor.  The face is going to be on a separate texture, so I&#8217;ll be tackling that tomorrow.  Decided to give Quixel Ddo a whirl.  Pretty sweet piece of software for setting up base textures.  
Still WIP as I need to do face, hair, and crossbows.

Issue of the Day: Busting&#8217; out!  (get it? :D)
I was doing some retopology and took a break when I found a piece called &#8220;Orchid&#8221; by Charlie Bowater.  I&#8217;ve been a fan of hers for a while and decided to do a little fan art.  The turntable is rendering now.  I&#8217;ll post that once it&#8217;s finished.  
This project was fun (fast too).

EDIT:  Needed to go back and make some tweaks.
