Character Design for 3D Game Models

Here are a few character sketches for some generic heroes I'll be building (low polly) in the 3d program Blender.  I've been playing with it the last few weeks and I've made some progress in the sculpting department.  Still need a better grasp on rigging and some of the detail aspects of UV mapping.

Suit up!

A few exaggerated sketches of Hollywood hero types.

Ben Hatke

...says I don't update my blog enough... and unfortunately he's right.  However this does give me an opportunity to share with you a Hatke original I purchased a few months back.

I haven't framed it yet since it often finds it's way onto my easel.  The brush work is particularly good, and when I paint, I like to have examples close by of how it's supposed to be done!

Thanks, Ben!

An Update? Really?!

Been trying to get a spark back in my recreational drawing.  It hasn't been there these last few months it seems.  Possibly because I'm expanding my studio and it's made things a mess.  Maybe it's this yucky winter weather and short days, I don't know.  Anyway... Don't stop drawing!
