So it's been a little while. I've been working a lot. I haven't been putting things on the internet as much because honestly they weren't good enough, even for me. I wasn't making the time to finish anything and I wasn't really dedicating myself to the work, and it showed. This month though, I bore down and really tried to put some time in to get better. I think things are working. I decided not that long ago that I want to become a professional illustrator, it's something I put off as not being lucrative, or too niche, or some other reason and never pursued it. The thing is though, that I don't want to be doing anything else right now. I'm not saying I don't want to be a designer, but a hybrid of a designer and illustrator and motion artist. I want to be what I want to be. No one is going to blaze this trail except me, so here I am, doing it. These are kind of potato quality, you can see full-res ones here
Still working on my alien model. The 'brains' are starting to look better, but the model overall is kind of boring.
Trying to do some more advanced rendering techniques and beefing up my workflow. Trying to get the 'brainy' stuff in the middle to glow and react to the glass and water.
Almost all the way caught up on here. Hopefully I will be able to render a couple more scenes to get it there.
Same plug-in. I was thinking this looked like some kind of weird alien landscape so I threw it in the desert with...mixed results. I still have some work to do with this one.
