Creature Features of a Cat, but also of a Stingray

A creature sketch in which I recall characteristics of a sting ray I had sculpted some time ago.

Coffee and Zbrush Before Work

Coffee and Zbrush before work. Sometimes you get that coffee jitter and this happens.

Brawny, Ballpoint and a Sharpy or two.

Here are a few drawings I made while having a Ayinger Brau Weisse. They told me a previous drawing hangs in their kitchen; I am happy they enjoy my drawing. Drawings left for bar staff.

My New Intuos Pro Professional

So it has been long overdue that I upgraded from my Intuos2. I am really enjoying exploring a new workflow. All the customization that can be performed with my new tablet is expansive. Here is a quick drawing while using the new tablet wirelessly; nifty feature.

Average Joe

Here is a model I will be reworking before it goes on my webpage. I have a game resolution version that is UV mapped and textured (normal, specular, and color) and will be finalizing these textures shortly. Here is the basic sculpture, the game resolution model has hair.

A Gift

Here is a copy after a Spanish drawing by Antonio del CASTILLO. This drawing is for my mother and now hangs in the families computer room. Medium of choice, the trusty BIC ballpoint.

Napkin Brothers

Sometimes there is no substitute for a good ol' napkin to get a doodle out. Some napkins like to tear easily; this makes for a good exercise in being gentle and controlled with ones lines.

This past Sunday I attended the Drawing Social @ Artist for Art Gallery in Scranton, PA. There was live music and other artists producing drawings. Here are a few of the drawings I made while being entertained by Walter Prez and The Awesome. Drawings done using a Conte Crayon in a scrapbook. The paper provided a bit too much resistance for my liking. Have a gander!

Zbrush Head Sketch

I figured we had a good rash of drawings so far, time for some 3d. Here is a head sketch with a focus on contour of form. While producing this sculpture, an imagined sense of tactile feedback or 'touch sense' as Harold Speed might put it was exercised.

Cylinders, Cubes, Structure

In these drawings I am using cylinders and cubes to help imagine the directions the mass conceptions point in space.

This second set of drawings are a bit more calculated and are used as an exercise in "seeing-through" as well as developing methods of construction.
