First CG update

My first 3d post for this blog is a couple of early renders of a stylized cabin scene I'm currently working on. Modeling is about 75% done, with a lot more BG trees/scenery to be added. No real textures/lights yet.
I tried to create a tree that had some life/character to it, like it's sort of sizing up the cabin ready to pounce...which it will if I get time to animate this scene (the tree is rigged.)

Charcoal Angel

This was originally a study for a larger oil painting I wanted to do...but never did.

Descartes a la charcoal

Another piece that I'll never see again thanks to that flooding incident I mentioned in the last post. Although I'm not 100% sure it was part of the big, wet stack of work I had to throw away, I have no idea where else it could've ended up since I haven't been able to find it anywhere.

I gave him a slightly different expression than what he has in the reference I used.

His hair looks too rushed and glumpy, his nose too flat and his eyes are little floaty, but I'm alright with it.

Old vue de Paris

These were done in my last trip to France about four years ago now. The top one was done at Pont Neuf adjacent to Notre Dame Cathedral. Everyone and their mother was sketching the cathedral so I figured I'd try its surroundings instead. It came out a little more wobbly than I wanted.
The second one was done at the Musee d'Orsay.
They're part of a pretty full sketchbook I'm trying to salvage from a flooding incident at my place last year. They're in the first couple of pages of the book so they didn't get as wet/soggy as the rest.
