Train Riding Drawing Adventures 6


Just like old times; collection of my efforts during Oct/Nov. (: 

I think it's number 6.
I won't shade them in this time, as it was time consuming when I did it in the previous train riding post. It's not much though in terms of drawings though...
...as I was barely awake during the other times on train rides. Tired...but I guess in a good way.

Nomad Panda - Modeling the 5.5 million poly Sculpt

Hullo small handful of kind friends!

Yes, tis' another Timely Tuesdays update!
Or let's call it Terrifically Terrible Tuesdays. Gives it a more positive vibe I'd hope.

Where I left off from last time with the Base Mesh of my Nomad Panda...well it's now almost 5.5 million polygons at subdivision level 6. (Confused? For those who have no idea on what I'm talking about, don't worry, it's just a bit of the technicalities. Essentially, the higher the number of polys, the more resources in time and memory space the model takes.)

Let's just say that after spending across 5 days of working on this Panda sculpt, I am in great need of a break from sculpting fur in the least. Fur. Fur. Overwhelming amounts of fur.

No video this time, easier to show them as images only.

Life Drawing 4 - Female in Drippy Ink

(8th Nov) Hulloooo! (:

Another horrific line up of adventures in life drawing, this time with ink. Blue ink.

I made a huge mess on the floor and...it wouldn't completely go away despite attempts in wiping it.
All the excess ink were drawn by gravity, causing it to leave its entrails across the paper as it falls to its inevitable demise.

Nomad Panda - Base Character Concept Art


Yes it's not a Fun Friday; I dub this day as Timely Tuesdays! It's where I find myself with something I need to post asap to get feedback, so I post them earlier within this scheduled time. (:
(No, I didn't wake up at 5am to post this.)

Wastelander-esque Panda

I'm currently working (volunteering, if you want to be technically correct) on a Character for a team of game programmers. It's their student game project and they wanted a "Wastelander Panda" webseries sort of Panda character with a Fallout 3 vibe to it. He also carries trash around. Their game is a puzzle 2D platformer, so I will need to make a spritesheet for them asap.

These are my rough sketches/thumbnails to get an idea of the Panda they're looking for.

HouseKeeping: RSS feed changeover!

Hello friend!

If you're subscribed to my RSS feed or my RSS email updates, you'd need to revert back to the original RSS feed link instead as follows: http://uuuinfinity.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default

At the moment, the old feed link redirects to this link but only for a limited time of 29 days before the Feedburner feed link will die out. If you would like to keep being updated via RSS, change your subscription feed link to the default one.

I realise that I can no longer stay with Feedburner as they're basically not supporting it anymore. I wished they would have made it more clear and obvious that it's becoming obsolete.

I think you can also use RSS to make email updates for you instead, through places like Blogtrottr or something else that suits you. I haven't used Blogtrottr though before, so don't count on my word here. Otherwise, my Facebook Art Page and Twitter are still going strong, and are great to receive updates from my blog too, once I get the connections going between them once again.

Hope to keep seeing you around and thanks for your kind support in my arting journey (:

Life Drawing Session 3 - Female

Hul-lo! The third session I did on the 2nd November!
(I might have mislabeled them as Oct in some of them but it doesn't matter)!

We played with something called conte pastels, not as soft as charcoal, yet not as hard as chalk. It's similar, yet different. Very strange when using it. Anyway, here goes!

Quick Poses at the start
