Here's some of my character model I am doing for a my modelling class. It's a wulfen, for those unaware of a what a wulfen is, it's a basically a warewolf. Some of the pics you'll notice the ride side is different than the left. While I model I use something called a sub-div proxy that essentially mirrors the other side of my model in a high poly res and updates everytime I tweak the low poly side. The hair is only on one side as well. The last one is a final render. Took a few hours.

I'm not a huge gamer or anything, but... c'mon! Starcraft 2! Granted I'm one of those guys who plays games for the graphics and story value. After finishing FF Tactics, I felt like I read a novel. Granted those FF games very likely put more text in there than a novel. I dreamed I slept with a vampire last night... how weird is that. Still trying to shake it off.

Hmmmm, I've entertained a notion to challenge my expertise of that an artist and experimenter (please entertain the fact I am still a student however :p). Every post I place, I have to out due or match in quality. I only entertained this because in practice, it doesn't make for a very engrossing blog. Like a story without conflict, it leaves it uninteresting. You only see my successes in design, animation, and 3D. However, I won't publish doodles that aren't even worthy of surfacing in a toddlers sketchbook. Just the ones I want to share. So the main motivation behind this post was simply to not miss a weekly (though erratic) post. If I want this SOB blog filled with content, I have to be vigilant and do so continuously. So this first one is Thulsa Doom from Conan by Robert E. Howard's Conan books. Following is Conan himself. Sometime I will have some Conan animations shortly. I already have two, but you know, I'm a shy guy. Next is an African descent man drawn in blue pencil. After that is a generic warrior swinging his sword around. Most of these, I try not to dwell too long on them. I try the hardest to draw something that someone can understand in the simplest of terms without having to undergo hours of rendering a drawing or colouring. If I can't make someone understand a 2 minute drawing, then why bother spending hours on it? Those are the things that don't get published from my sketchbook. The failings...
