I’ve been lazy.
But working on getting stuff done again now.
I have been working on quite a few projects that are rather large, so there’s not much to show aside from progress images (which I will try to show more of or there will never be anything!)
I can’t show you, but it’s big. Very big.
You remember that one I was doing for my brother? Well I finally got around to doing more, even it doesn’t look like much, it is – for me. Foreshortening is a bitch.
For those who have no idea on Transformers, this one is Cyclonus (he was introduced in Transformers; The Movie. If you haven’t seen the original – which is older than I am – I’m afraid we can’t be friends 😛 )
My bro does have a truly epic beard and this image does it no justice!
And that other thing I was doing for my Dad but didn’t want to show?
This year I want to make everyone a Christmas present with some real love and pizzazz. So I have my Dad and my older bro covered, which leaves… Mum, 2 younger brothers, sister, Sister-in-law, 2 brother-in-laws, mother/father-in-law and some of my mates if I get time. Lots of planning to do! Should keep me busy up until Christmas anyway. I plan on turning them all into wall scrolls or laminated posters for longevity.
Wednesday I was doodling while watching the RT Podcast and I got this: (Manga studio 5 is much nicer for doodling I find)
And I forgot I also had this one:
This was done following Dan LuVisi’s Tutorial for arms. He is an amazing and inspirational artist and I recommend everyone go check out his work, it’s phenomenal!
This was done completely in Photoshop, which I thought would be impossible for me to do. So yeah 😀
Other than that, I’ve been trying to paint a Tyranid for a local game store competition, but the lighting sucks for taking photos and it still looks like poo. Nothing for you!
Now have a Drop Pod for my Space Wolves, but I haven’t put it together yet. Still debating if to make it a troop or dreadnought pod. But my GOD Murderfang is a BEAST (based on the one game i’ve used him in…Still, 8 attacks on the charge, ermagherd)
Last night I watched Pacific Rim again.
I can’t decide if I like it or not. It has good and bad parts.
My son fell asleep on his little kid couch and I hadn’t gotten around to moving him to bed and he woke up mid movie and refused to go to bed and stuck to me like a limpet. So he watched the movie with me. I realise that’s bit of parenting fail given he’s only 3 and a half, but he seemed to take it well. He thought it was Alien Dinos vs Robots, so it’s all good. The only thing I worry about is the part when the Kaiju hatchling ate Ron Perlman, however he didn’t bat an eyelid. Afterwards, he went to bed like a good boy and didn’t wake up upset at all, which seems like a winner!
