Facial Reconstruction

I decided that I didn't like the face of my dog model. So I went in and fixed it. Ah the beauty of plasticine. Enjoy.

3d Little Green Mans

This is the model for my final assignment in my 3d animation class. You might recognize him from one of my previous posts. This has taken me a few days, but I have really enjoyed growing by learning how things all go together. I still have a little work to do on the eyes, but you get the idea. Hopefully I'll have the animation up for you in a couple weeks. Enjoy! (Maya 2008)

Basil, Salem, or Spot...or something else

Here is...yeah cant decide on a decent name for him. I did a lot of smoothing and detail work on him for this last pass. I thought he was a bunch of fun. I could really get into this modeling thing :) Enjoy!

My second maquette is coming along nicely. This guy is way heavy, but a lot more sturdy than the girl. I really like the big shapes, but the large surface area makes him really hard to smooth out and make it look just right. I have only spent 2 days on this one so far, and I'm almost done. I'm going to say that I leveled up in efficiency a bit with this second one :) Enjoy.

Here she is in all her glory. I actually finished at a decent time tonight. This model is done with clay, and I'm proud to claim it as my first attempt ever at sculpting. This was a bunch of fun, and if I ever figure out how to do this without taking so much blasted time, I might just do it for fun sometime :) Enjoy!


Sorry for the poor quality photo, I was in a hurry to get to school this morning. I really worked on the face last night, it was really bugging me, so I fixed the lips, nose and a little bit more with the eyes. The hair will be my next effort. I WILL finish this tonight!

One Last Step

I spent all night yesterday working on the hands and a few little details here and there. One main change is her bottom eyelids. I mostly flattened them out so I wouldn't keep getting the "she looks like she's wearing glasses her eyelashes are so thick" look. I have to finish out the hair, possibly some more smoothing out of rough edges and I think she will be pretty much done. Enjoy!

Getting close!

Here she is after day 5. I finished blocking out her arms and added some detail to the pants, legs and sleeves. I would be embarrassed to tell you how long I actually worked on ths model for so few results. That's what I get for being a perfectionist. I should have her done by tomorrow. Cross your fingers! Enjoy!

Day 4

Here is some progress for the 4th day. She's actually starting to look like a model of a human! Woo this is fun, but extremely time consuming. I think that I just need to block out the important parts before actually trying to make it look pretty :) Lets hope I can get her finished soon, I have another one to build by the end of the month! Enjoy.

Without her vest.

With the vest :)


This is my progress on the 3rd night. It is taking quite a bit of time, especially because wire doesnt move quite as well as human joints do. It is an interesting learning experience trying to get this girl to look like how I drew her on paper. I will post up the concept drawing for her too after I get everything done. It is a lot of fun, it just takes forever.

Model Head

This is after 2 days work what I have so far on my first model.  Hopefully the rest of her won't take me as long to get done.  I'm still working out the kinks, but I think that so far it's pretty successful for my first model ever :)

Super secret space

4 of 4!! Holy snap, this one killed me. Mainly because I took it upon myself to keep to one hue. Yep, this is monochromatic. Everything is a shade of yellow. I tried to get the dank gross feeling that signifies jealousy and greed for me. It was tough but in the end, I'm pretty proud of it. This is where Arlington and his lackeys come at night. Its a secret spot inside a shed on the outskirts of camp. This is where they plot against John, Clarence, or anyone else who gets in their way. It is also where Arlington tries to write poetry to Mary, as you can see from the papers on the table and the crumpled papers on the floor. Enjoy
