More D&D characters

Hedgehog Paladin

 Jakoby Stauss - Fighter


I worked on more D&D characters this week.  I am developing a bit of a backlog though.  I thought I would get through more work.  The hedgehog I worked on detailing and moving from flat colouring to rendering without lines takes quite a while but I think I can change the process to move things along.  This was done for vicar1492 . The fighter I stopped just before more  rendering. This was done for Tusklord
I will keep working on a few more of these.

Borg the Orc

Took some of the sketches from last week and have being working them up.  I am working off prompts from Reddit . Sam Peterson used in in an earlier Art Posse challenge.  I didnt take part but the character prompts are great and there are lots to choose from.  I had hoped to have a second one finished by now but still needs some work.  
So this moved from traditional sketch to coloured lineart  then to a render in greyscale.  This character was from ChuddStudly.

A lot of WIP

This week I am in the middle of a few projects.  The plan for the aerial attack is to complete it in oils on a 30 cm x 40 cm panel.  I did the roughs in Photoshop but this will be transferred to the panel.  When doing this I came across a really good visual development series CG World entry.JP by Ishiko Ito.  Its in Japanese but is readable with google translate if you have no Japanese.  It is the most comprehensive and well explained resource I have seen on building an image.  

The other challenge I have set my self is to design more characters - I will try to finish as many as I can and try a few different approaches.  These are 30 minute sketches.  So lots to complete.

Remington Study

After Frederic Remington with the 10th cavalry
Another bad week for me with regard to work as I am still recovering.  Above is a study I completed of a Frederic Remington work With the 10th Cavalry.  I choose just to do the main figure.  I enjoyed the looseness of this.  It was serving as a study for another piece I did get to start.
