Swamp Environment Painting

This was my final for my digital painting class. Sweetie, the army girl in earlier posts, lives in the cottage with her grandma. (it's a spin on the Red Riding Hood fairy tale) The swamp is slowly encroaching on them.

Which DS Cartridge is fake/3D?

I shaded a cartridge for my shader programming final. Try to guess which one it is. :)

I'll probably work on this more, but this is an assignment I completed for my digital painting class. This is a girl named Sweetie who loves candy and cute things. She is scared of the forest/swamplands around her house.

For character design we were assigned to do Caricatures. I chose Dick Van Dyke. It could've been exaggerated more, but it was fun.

Sweetie Painting WIP

I painted this for my digital painting class. I'm going to change the lighting and colors. It was fun to experiment with color. Sweetie is the girl in this painting and she has a gumball gun. :)

Painting Stuffs

So for digital painting I had to choose three things from my character named Sweetie (top left) and paint them. So I did an eye, hand, and cotton candy hair.

Strawberry time!

Painted this for a class and it was super fun! It's for a shader programming class and we have to shade a fruit in 3d. So I painted this up to study it's material properties first. I'm not shading the leaves so that's why there aren't any.

Fan Art- Dingodile

I wanted to recreate a scene from the boss fight from Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped (especially since I just bought the game!). After you spin Dingodile, his flamethrower pack explodes. Dingo is my favorite character in the series.

Backgrounds kick my butt...

Sorry it's been so quiet on the posting front, I've had some computer issues. :/ But now we're good!
Here are some studies. Let's just say value enjoys throwing its' own parties. And I never get invited. But it's all good, I learned a bunch!

Fan Art Friday- Jet the Hawk

Gotta love Sonic the Hedgehog characters! I drew this for Paige for a belated b-day present. It's one of her favorite video game characters. :)

Dynamics- ncloth Flag wave

I did this for a dynamics assignment in my 3d animation class. There are things I would still tweak, but I am generally pleased with the result. I discovered lighting and texturing are really fun. Someday I will stop doing blobby mountain backgrounds.

Purple Diamond

I just wanted to experiment with a diamond/jewel material in Maya. It was fun to learn about caustics/reflections/refractions. I created this from an awesome tutorial on the 3d Total website.
