Not easy right now for me with the detailwork. I'm working on a challenge over at CGSociety. Thanks for dropping by again and veiwing my pics. Yes i will try to put some more work into the WIPS above. Just hovering between the concept of having a digital sketchbook and an easel where I can return and get some perspective...
Uplift Challenge Beginnings-WANNA HELP!?!?!
Compositing of 2D and 3D!!!
I tried some anatomy a few weeks ago just so I could remember what I was talking about, but with all the stuff I'm working with these days it's slipping. Here is more animatic shots from uplift
These are layouts from AE
TRANSISTOR RODEO podcast by MYN
"KA-BAM, KA-BAM. The earth shook in Los Angeles, which anyone reasonably familiar with this little corner of the planet would tell you was no strange happenstance. Except today it was different. Today it was safe to say this was no tectonic shift, no natural event. In fact, this man-made disaster, in terms of mind-blowing experiences, was a complete doozy. But chances were most of those people who would even consider the possibility of how incredibly mind-blowing it was to experience were the very same ones running for their very lives at that very moment from a mechanical and very runaway Tyrannasaurus Rex.
ÜÜÜ That is if they were downtown, with the forty foot tall extremely lifelike robot smashing it's way through the streets of Chinatown--it's large feet smashing downward on abandoned cars strewn across the street while it's tiny pneumatically-powered arms crushed the metal streetlamps in it's path as if they were nothing more than the lines of red paper lanterns strung across the main thoroughfare.
ÜÜÜ If they were on the Westside, by the beach and the Santa Monica pier there was a good chance they were running from one of the many robotic cowboys riding atop robotic horses seemingly rounding up frightened human pedestrians as if they were errant cattle to be driven down to the ocean.
ÜÜÜ And a couple dozen miles away, in the San Fernando Valley, a stampede of robotic elephants, rhinos, moose and lions had brought nearly all traffic to a grinding halt. This was of course due to the incredible number of cars that had been abandoned in the middle of the street by drivers frightened out of their wits by the mechanical beasts running wild through some of the most congested intersections in the city.
ÜÜÜ Yet these folks were not alone for citizens from Long Beach to Silverlake had taken to huddling inside of their homes and offices in fear of the uncontrollable robot rampage running rampant outside. And though many a frantic reporter uttered the same phrase time and time again while helicopter news footage of the mechanical dinosaur smashing its way down the street played on countless television sets around the world, it was safe to say that yes, the city of Los Angeles had come to a complete standstill.
ÜÜÜ To all think that just a few days ago the whole city, nay the whole world, had been swept up in the mania and ferver that only mega-events such as the Superbowl or World Cup can create. A spectacular extravaganza that was to be the debut of the traveling show known far and wide as Transistor Rodeo.
ÜÜÜ And as he sprinted though the gyser of water jetting upward through he pavement where a fire hydrant had once been, Dean pushed the dark wet hair from his eyes and ran faster and harder than he ever had in his thirteen years of life. Each time the T-Rex took one giant step it covered the same ground he could in ten and as his lanky legs grew even more tired, he could tell the massive robotic dinosaur was gaining ground on him by how much more the ground rumbled under him now than just a few seconds ago.
ÜÜÜ Somewhere he hoped his father was having better luck and it was strangely at that very moment that a single thought rocketed through Dean's synapses like a lightning strike.
ÜÜÜ It was right then he tried to tell himself it hadn't always been like this."
Casts and characters for the CLUD 9 Uplifting the Universe Challenge. Still working with the LOGO.
Phone Home HeHe!
very nice and original
The Uplift challenge contest is pretty close to being over, it will end the first week in June. Heeer is some city renders that I forgot to post after I got done with all the cars. Also I've worked on the room in CG which I will post soon. I also did a buncha cloud studies with particles and the whole she-bang. Wish I could do a hundred of em but it's expensive render! (sigh) You can see a rough animation at this link.
Cloud studies in Lightwave 9 with hypervoxels and volumetrics!!!

first of all, thank you for look at my sketchbook, i'm very glad for your tips and analysis, all people here are helping me a lot to improve my work, and i'm very excited to start apply these in my studies.
I must confess that i barely entered in the concept art world,(and the digital work too) and a lot of things i'm doing is based on works and professionals that i'm seeing, but all this to learn. I know that the "same as always" aren't the best things, but i'm working in something "new" in parallel. And as some people said to me, i'll try to match my traditional skills with my digital skills.
So, thank you again, that was a very good tip and i'm honored to receive it!
And about your portfolio, did you have some Macross references? I see a lot of things that remembered me that (and that's AMAZING!), i like very well the way you put your vision on the works, something it's bit confuse to understand, but i think that's intentional.
Hey Kelly X, what is meant by #10. I'm guessing you are meaning my 10th post or Aponeurosis. Well, yes I would enjoy to animate it. What do you suppose she should be doing in the action sequence?
