Samurninja







For those who follow the UFC, I couldn't stop thinking of Shogun's fight last night. The judges must have had Solid Snake stealth because they wouldn't have gotten out the stadium alive otherwise.

The thought kind of led me to doing this for some odd reason. I decided to place many materials of different properties which makes for excellent practice. Initial silhouette is provided as well. I was thinking of placing a dead dragon behind her but this piece is cheesy enough as it is.

EDIT: Woke up and realized how stupidly revealing it was on the leg area. Fixed.

EDIT2: Leather looked like cloth. Cloth looked like leather. Fixed.

The Goliath



This is a character for my upcoming bigger painting. I wanted to experiment with specularity and how much of it is needed in order to show form for metals. The classical test to find the balance between lighting theory and what looks good in art came to play yet again...

Inspired by gorillas and Monster Hunter.

Pendulum



Won the award for worst background in the history of Sheridan animation pendulums.

Bowling Ball

Rubber Ball


Tried to exaggerate the squash and stretch for this one.

Balloon


This was hell. I don't even want to know how many trees I used up for this one.

Monopoly Man hits Puberty

Self-explanatory. Whoops.
