cheeseburger on my t-shirt

My sister introduced me to a new medium this past week. I thought you needed fancy and expensive screen printing technology to make your own shirt designs.

Coming together

Our team has been putting in some really solid work on the game these past few weeks. We are about to cross the threshold where our game goes from looking like a wierd mix of unfinished 3D assets to GAME! Next semester will be more hard work and a lot of icing.

Z-brush updates

Here is the current progress of both of my sculpting projects. Elvis needs a bit more poly painting and a solid pose, while the stump back needs just about everything.

I am still working towards the completion of Space Elvis. In the meantime I am also working on the early stages of the next sculpt which will be a quadruped. This is Stumpback.

Salvage Youth

We finally replaced the placeholder title of our upcoming game project. Wasted Youth was giving players a weird sort of high school dropout vibe. Anyways, Here is a quick dump of a few different concepts I have been doing for the project.

just plain cool

Applying a chrome Matcap in Zbrush. Yeah you know its the first thing you do too. He just jumped from a couple thousand polys to a couple million.

Coming along

This is a quick snapshot of where Space Elvis is as of now. We are just now finishing up the low poly models to bring into z-brush and begin sculpting next week. I am very excited about this project so far.

The Wasted Youth Suburbs

This is a piece I have been working on this week trying to tie down some color script information as well as determining how many levels of detail the background will contain. Whats is 3d? versus what we will make a static background painting in the game.

Space Elvis

This is the character model sheet for Z-brush class. I am really looking forward to doing a lot of really frustrating work in that class. I am sure it will be worth it for my portfolio.

All I want for Christmas is is a screen printing kit.

the finished lawnmower

My producer asked me to make the super duper rusted scrap yard version of the mower to go into the background. I like the way it turned out.

The neglected lawnmower

This is a process piece I am working on for our game style guide. It is basically a step by step that helps the artists make sure that our work has a consistent look and style.

process of decay

A series of images that follow the process I often go through taking a concept from a line drawing to a full value color illustration. In our story the children live in a world that has been trashed and left to rot for several years.
