Alien01: model+uvw mapping

Ok, I think is time to start posting even more than before. For now, just the alien model I was working on and I made in 3D Studio. Also, I put the uvw mapping... However, I still have to keep working on it, this is just like a rough first preview.

Mini Challenge: Rhino Warrior

My friend Daniel Orive and me created a challenge for us: it had to be a warrior and also an anthropomorphic animal. So, in 2 hours and a half, we had to make some silhouettes and a fast sketch. And this is the result, I hope to make more fast sketches, keep the mind so awake.

Comicon Challenge 2011: RED MONIKA

I finally did it!! I finished her and it is in the challenge! It was a hard process, mostly the end, but I feel proud that I finished in time. These are the links in Gameartisans, the post  and the gallery where the final submision is.

Next thing I'm gonna do is a turn arroud of the character, just to see the lights and how the specullar affects to the model. This is just the first of many characters in 3d!!

Work in progress...

Here it is Red Monika in low poly. I had so much trouble with it... it is not as clean it should be and the way I organized the texture is not correct either. However, I am finishing it and it will be done for the next monday, when I have to present the final model. I feel good seeing the whole process til here.

Just patient and step by step...

Red Monika high poly!

These are the las screenshots I made. It wasn´t easy to finish this character. I had soooo many problems, accidents, the software exploited a couple times... A torture... However, this is the result, and I am happy of what I did because it is the first one of many... I hope so...

WIP: Red Monika is coming...

I am starting to realize how hard this is getting.... really, I am suffering. These pictures are the easy part, they are just a sketch of what I want. Now, I am sculpting pieze by pieze.... This is driving me crazy, but it is just the first model I do in Zbrush, it's part of it.

Comicon Challenge 2011: Red Monika!

At Game Artisans, there is a new challenge about the comicon convention in San Diego (I think it was closed, but they wanted to do it even if it is closed). This is the link of my post:

So, I had to choose a character in 3D and to make it like in a different universe. I decided to make Red Monika, Madureira's character. And as you can see, her proportions are a little bit exaggerated.... well, the reason I decided to make her is because it makes fun of all the female characters: perfect women, beautiful, good butt and boobs.... the list is long.

I am trying to make her like comic style... but I don´t really know what's gonna happen because this is the first time I do this and I am learning at the same time, so i can't be focused only in the style, just to finish it. However, I don´t even know if I'll be able, but I must try!

So, this is my work in progress, it is just a taste, there will be more soon!!

So... here I am again.... This is the character that I have picked and I am modelling. The process as you see started with that silhouette. It is a really easy to follow these steps: I used the little figure that was in the last drawing, I colored in black and just added a couple details. So, when you see the proportions are correct (or it looks like it could be real) I drew on it the shapes, muscles and basically what I need.

Well... something easy to start!

(P.S... sorry for the english... I am on it!)

Aliens, aliens, aliens....

Just sketching arround. I am trying to find something to model, so I decided to create faces and shapes. It helps me to find "the one" I want to create and also I learn more about the character. It helps me to choose as well.

Which one would you choose?

Keep going!

This is my second try... I am having so much fun doing these silhouettes of my alien species. Playing with shapes, new structures... I feel so free doing this while I listen to music. Sometimes, I try to imagine how it moves or even their characters: are they paceful, kind, agressive or just an animal that survives in its environment? However, the shapes helps, they say so much...

First try

As the title says, this is my first try for two things: writing in english and drawing like this. I was inspired by a person that I was working with, so I decided to follow his method of concept art, by silhouettes. At the begining I had to get used to it, but the more I tried, the better I was...

Well, my english is not perfect either, but this is my first try and a first step for the future.

See you soon!
