Brick Tank WIP

Personal Project .

The white Knights of Mars ! Join today!!!

I really just wanted  to do a semi futuristic Mega tank nicknamed "The Brick Tank "so here's the first roughs .I did a lot of figuring out on this one to the point that i could see through the paper:)
  you can see that I explored little bits off  to the sides knowing that i would be retracing it all after .

  I inked the original but kinda didn't like how it looked .the lines were too fat and kind of killed some of the energy soooo.....

*note the giant cat hair 

I light boxed over the inks !I left it as pencils and just cleaned it up in Photoshop .it gave me the chance to fix a few things .Some of its pretty organic but i like that.

This a rough color /value pass .this could change quite a bit once i dig into it .


I have loved ninja turtles since for ever and I haven't drawn any in a while so I was over due to make some TMNT fan art!My first ever black and white ninja turtle comic was issue 10 and it gave me a very new appreciation for what comics could be .I bought many issues after and  read those comics ragged .

Here is  the first thumb i did .looks like hes sort of coming out of a door which i ditched but the pose was working for me .

This is me drilling down to the final Composition .If i haven't said it already tracing stuff like this out on a light box has been a life saver!

i removed the teeth because he is a turtle but then he looked old! teeth it is :)

my final Line work .I didn't ink it just cleaned up the pencils in Photoshop. It could probably be cleaner but part of me likes the more organic bits .

First pass color rough in 

Z-brush/Sculptris project - monster bird

In an effort to broaden my skill set i will be 3D sculpting something .I always go in and muck around with Z brush  but rarely do i have a target in my head .I though i would try and draw up an idea so i can focus on a an end goal as i work :)

I'm going to Attempt to sculpt this :

Here is the very first sketch i did before light boxing  .Of course its too ambitious right off the bat .I ended up ditching the top hat and watch thing  but if  I succeed at the creature i may add the elements back in .

Here's the rough sketch after removing the extra stuff and also playing with more of a bird style leg(you can only see it faintly in the image ) .Even for a monster it was weird and awkward so i kept the strait leg .
