SK*8 (final render) - All right stop collaborate and listen Ice is back with my brand new invention Something grabs a hold of me tightly Flow like a harpoon daily and nightly Will it ever stop yo I don't know Turn off the lights and I'll glow To the extreme I rock a mic like a vandal Light up a stage and wax a chump like a candle Dance go rush to the speaker that booms I'm killing your brain like a poisonous mushroom etc...
Squidward Sr_Grey Shadows and Highlights - In this step I am just throwing in some greys to show the form better. I start with the darkness and then follow up with another layer for the top highlights. I change the opacity on my brush a lot and use a lot of selections with a broad brush.
SK*8/ Phase 1 - Now I am fine tuning composition with the layout of the two views of the girl. A little clean up and starting to design ice-soaring apparatus. Defining ice circles in the ice and reflections to keep build up the story and mood.
Light Suit Tutorial - This shows how I got the end result of the light suit. I bought this flexible led panel and formed it over my daughters body and took a series of photos. I put it all together and painted over it in PSD.
Triple Delight_Rollerblade Progress - Blocking in some shapes and defining features on this chick. Breaking up the rocket seat so it is featured a bit more. A cool blue natural gas blast from the back may be neat.
Triple Delight_Final Rollerblade Detail - This is as far as I wanted to take this image. My favorite part is the breather plate on her face and the squinted Clint Eastwood eyes. This image was all about a cool camera angle and motion. I ended up tying in the green John Deere across the whole image. Just hints of textures and materials.
"Day Brakes" Tutorial Image 1 - Here is another example of an image I have just begun. You can still see my rough initial sketch in the background and my updated sketch layered on top. I am defining the light source, blocking out the image composition, and telling a story. Notice the character staring at the man exiting the plane.
I will push foreground, mid-ground and background in this image as well for a sense of 3D depth. Some rich fabrics for that curtain will also seal the deal.
My Studio - I work in the corner of our guest room. Not a lot of space in California houses. Inpiration around and plenty of references. I have my reference library of books in another room. My favorite parts...anatomy models, Glenn Barr art, bomb and spidey.
