Monster Head 2

Render with sketches!

Creature design: heads 3

He's my new friend. We met at the pond. He's 1/3 golden fish, 1/3 catfish and 1/3 invented. I still don't know exactly how to treat the skin and how the light works on him.

And these are the brushes that I had left at work last week.
Talk to you soon!

Monster Head

Here is a draft for the render, I have many doubts about the color and light and I will need to work much more on it to reach an acceptable stage.

Talk soon!

Creature design: heads 1

Hey guys! Once again, I'm sorry for skipping last week class but Skype on the phone didn't work, maybe because of the rain, who knows! Anyway I abandoned my fantastic mosquito to do these heads, I didn't have enough time for both. 
Talk to you tonight!

creature test

Creature Design: Mythical Creature 02

A bunch of paintovers  (thanks to Andy for the 3D model!) exploring the mythical creature theme.

And a bunch of custom brushes. The first ones are my homemade basic brushes which I use quite regularly. The last one in the set I made for this week. I was trying to come up with a nice painterly skin texture brush - not sure it works that well though.
The last two are some of the foliage brushes I made to give texture to the background in my insect illustration.
If you guys want any of these I can send them via email. :)

Talk to you guys tonight!
