Thursday is Dumpday

I've come to the realization that I have absolutely ZERO 3D work displayed. Mainly because all the 3D stuff I've worked on recently is for work, and I'm unable to show it until the licensor gives the OK, the product hits the shelves, or the project is totally canned.

Annoying? Meh...kinda.

Thankfully a few weeks ago, I decided to light a fire under my own ass and get some personal work started in 3D. Here's a small preview of one of my characters, Rodney:

Normally, I hate posting unfinished pieces or ones that are still in process. Especially 3D stuff. Within the short time it took me to throw together that board I noticed every little thing wrong with the sculpt.

Overall I am happy with it, don't get me wrong. Aside from a few very minor changes, I should have him fully modeled and possibly textured by the beginning of next week. Until then, enjoy this illustration dump!

I did finish this piece, but I sort of like it with just the flat color and no effects. I'll post the finished version later.

Can you tell I've been on somewhat of a ghost kick lately?
And this little guy. One of the first drawings I finished in 2010. I need to do more tentacly characters.

This is really great! You followed the design so well and made it look very appealing in 3D! Yay!!! Man, I wish I could design toys with you. :P

Great job on.. pretty much everything you've got posted here. I am *particularly* liking the ghost puppy/rabbit fellow. The colors are really appealing too--I think i'm with you, liking them flat.

They all look great.
What 3D are you useing it looks like Maya.

Thanks everyone! I'm glad you're all diggin this stuff!

Designing toys has definitely helped my sketching style and skill over these past few years. That stuff is WILD.

Yea, I like the flat color too. I've got a fully rendered version, but I feel like this gets the character across more without the bells and whistles of a full render...and the lens flares LOL.

Maya is my program of choice! Over the past few years I've really come into my own as a modeler and sculptor with if only I can conquer acceptable animation!
