Maximum Resolution

After a bit of a hiatus towards the end of last year, i decided to roll my sleeves up and and get back on the art horse for 2013. There's a lot of room for improvement across the board, so to get things started i warmed up with some quick studies of some pics by various more talented artists...


After that a few more general studies were in order...(some more finished than others)







There were a few lunchtime speedpaints, which led to some crocodile related fun, and a quick session of zbrush - something i hadnt gone near in far too long!





And some more lunchtime Zbrushing...


A couple of lunchtime speedpaints - "Africa"



And figuring there's no harm in tackling a bit of anatomy i started from the ground up...




...and once i'd done that, i figured it'd be even better to do even more, so i registered for another course - and last week i started an 8 week CGMW course in Analytical Figure Drawing. First assignment was a truckload of gesture drawings...



And thats it for this month. For the sake of completion i'll add this final pic i did at the end of last year, another study from the excellent "Excalibur"

  1. Excellent stuff, as usual. I particularly like..er.."everything" although I do notice a distinct lack of gestures relating to the consumption of alcoholic beverages in your studies, not sure what's going on there?

    But apart from that "tray bone" as the French say!
