Zbrush Female Head Sculpt

I've been hard at work on other game art projects lately and haven't had much time to finish any personal work, but here is one that I had time to do not so long ago. All the work here was done in Zbrush, modeling & texturing.

Super Foods Animatic

Here's an art test animatic that I did in my spare time. It took about two days to do, using software packages Photoshop and After Effects along with some artist wiles and creativity as well. I've included all of the pre production drawings to give an idea of how I usually go about these--from character concepts, to rough thumbnails, to more refined storyboards.

More Random Cartoon Characters

These guys are much fun to draw, and I would probably draw more of it if I had the time. Some of them are crazy, but then again why shouldn't they be? These were drawn in Photoshop. About an hour in all.

Animation concept characters/ story board

For an art test and as a sort of practice for my cartooning skills, I created some original character designs and a story idea for a cartoon show. These characters are humanoid bugs, and I meant to portray them as characterizations of lifelike human beings, often in an exaggerated or absurd way. For me, things like this are always fun to draw and create.

Skull Sculpt Study

I realize that I haven't posted any artwork in awhile, and I intend to start posting regularly again. To start things off here's a skull study sculpture that I recently completed using Zbrush. I started with a sphere primitive and sculpted it into the finished look using an actual human skull replica for reference.
