Akuma Matata

Working on an Disney/Akuma piece too. I think I exaggerated him a bit too much but I guess that's how Milt Kahl used to do things. We'll just see how it goes. If you picture him with Jim Cummings voice (Pete from Goofy) it makes slightly more sense.

Hurst 3D

Doing a sculpt based on the cover of Earl Oliver Hurst's artbook. It's one of my favourite artbooks. :)

I've decide to come at this from an "Electric Tiki" angle. They seem to handle 2D to 3D sculpt translations so well. Currently blocking things out, trying to figure out at the proportions. It looks kinda freaky to me right now so I scribbled over a screencap to see if I'm going in the right direction. Going to tilt the head and remove the symmetry on the hair when I'm a bit further down.

Back to Business!!

OK, I stop and start with things way too much. Getting back into 3D. Here are some play arounds I've done over the last few weeks. Photoshop/Sai helps a lot when planning.

It seems to be helping me with my paintings for now at least. In that I'm getting better at volume and anatomy. Hopefully by the time I get ok at this 3D prints will be cheaper. Can't wait to do some vinyl figures, I love those damn those things. I guess I can use it for game design and animation until that day :)
