More breaking.


I've started to try and do some mood/abstract paintings in an attempt to branch out and keep from drawing the same stuff over and over. Not sure if it helps but it's definitely fun.

Break time 2


I may have gone too far with the "water" and some areas are a little ambiguous, overall composition needs work too. Though this isn't exactly the most original piece to begin with.

Webs


I took an old, pretty boring project I did for class a while ago and tried to bring it back to life using a spider and some webs. Because spiders and webs can make anything look cool. But then I realized I had never actually tried doing webs. Much testing/cursing ensued, and here's the first pass.
Each web in the shot has its own shader as I'm trying to figure out which is heading in the right direction...but they're all a bit cartoony right now. . And I need to show those roots some more love as they're a little on the plastic side.

Done! ...sort of

Done for now, anyway. There's a couple of things that I feel need to be fixed before I can call it.
But for where it's at now I'm pretty happy with the results. The colors are pretty off right now, though. Can't wait to do a real render with mental ray; til then Zbrush screenshots and turntables will do.
