Sometimes only ROCK will do

Sunday, May 15, 2011

I have'nt done much lately on this Dino, I have done more than half the skin detail a few months ago, and will finish it soon. I also did a quick Head Study after Walking Dead inspired me.

I've been making a catalogue of Graffiti (Street Art) that appears around Auckland, which started as just works that I thought were good and could get a good image of, but has morphed into a collection of every piece that I can get an image of, just in case some dumbarse paints over it. Leave a note if you know which Crew or Artist did it. There are lots so I will just post a few at a time.

The next two make up the same wall. This piece is gone now.

This is a great piece of work, I wish it was in a place where you could see it more easily.

Dino Sculpt.

I really wanted to get a sculpt going, and don't have much free time. My main concern is building an armature with the correct proportions, I'm sure when you have done alot of them you build up a technique like the Shiflett Bros do Here, from experience and familiarity with the proportions much like sketching anatomy with a pencil but with wire.

I wanted to do a dino. I have to finish detailing the feet and work the abdomen abit (well the more I look the more there is to do but I have to stop at some point) then the skin details stage, the clay is very soft. The armature is not robust enough so the model flex's while working on it so I have stabilised it with the pillars under the wrists until its finished . The bottom jaw sticks out too far for my liking, but the model is only an exercise (this is my third sculpt), so I will move onto the next one rather than redo the head of the armature and resculpting it.

I would have liked to put relaxed muscles on one limb and bulging under strain on the other, and define all the muscles and the form with some exaggeration here and there and some more accurate depiction of the neck and a way better head etc etc but I think I just need to do alot more sculpts to be able to achieve those goals, and perhaps work in a firmer clay like sculpy or do bigger sculpts so I can get in there to do the fiddly stuff.

This is not a species its a conglomeration from ref and sketches combined with my imagination.

One more time.

I had another go at this sculpt. Its been sitting around since June last year and the head I did as a bust in August 2010. Then the other day I thought it would fit together if I ripped the head off the bust. I shortened the fingers and made a couple of other minor tweaks including adding hair to the slave.

Holiday almost over.

I started doing sculpting to learn anatomy for zbrush sculpting. I found out that you can't just sit down and sculpt, you need to decide which clay, and buy armature wire etc. So I bought some soft Klean Klay for $30, which never goes hard and found out quite quickly that it was great fun.

But I needed hard clay not soft. I made the following anatomy study in soft clay so I can't get any more details like small fingers because it just gets too maliable really quick when it warms up. So this is as far as this will go.

I have got some hard clay but that is still a bit to soft, so now I'll try super sculpey. Might try and finish the dinosaur I started in hard clay after this guy .

Old and New Study's.

Heres a few older studies of painting in photoshop, and another attempt at painting today. I chose the goat's head because I sketched one in the morning and it was easier than thinking up a new subject.

Theres a few coloured pencil drawings because I've never used them before to do a complete picture, and I wanted to see what they could look like, The one that is my interpretation of a painting by Stanley Palmer is Pencil and scanned and reworked in photoshop.

I'm reminded when I look at this post that real paintings are not done in a day, and the last one confirms that, so I have a long way to go but I'm one step closer today than I was yesterday, as Hokusai said by the time I'm 110 I should be really good.

The Hobbit is in the hole.

The Hobbit is in the hole. The groundwork has been done.


Great news for all those of us who wanted to get the films made here, not only for the work that some will get, but for the continuity of the look and feel of the end product with its companion LOTR. Not that the props and scenes could not be reproduced and used overseas, but that the implementation of ideas (the kinds of ideas that we come up with to solve and enhance a scene or situation) sometimes needs more than a workforce, it needs a community and as a small country with ties to the source material, we can do that.
