Creature Update

Here's an update on the creature. I think now is a better time to retopologize.

Creature Feature

A creature that I've been working on. The concept is by my good friend Daniel Burgos. I made the basemesh from zspheres then took it into XSI for the fingers. Going to retopologize now and finish it up.

Render Tests

Here's the final presentation of the cyborg. It was a lot of fun to work on and I also learned alot. First time using custom shaders as well. I still need to tweak the cyborg shader a bit to dirty it up. Also, got a great crit about lighting from a friend, gonna play with them a bit.

Cyborg Damage

Here's a cyborg damage update. He escaped from a military facility. Going for a two-face sort of style; trying to maintain a good human likeness on one side. More updates soon!

Gimme my Lucky Charms!

While tightening up the damage on the cyborg, I got motivated from a friend to do one of these exercises. Lots of fun, can't wait to get to the detailing.

Low Poly Goodness

Here's the low poly and normal map transfer for the arm exercise. Still needs some work.

Little update on the gun.

Alien head I did after doing a couple of sketches of weird one eye bigger than the other guys. Couple of hours out of a sphere.

Friday, May 9, 2008


Today I retopologized a head made from a sphere to a mesh with edge loops and projected the details to the new "clean" mesh. Subtool projection for the win :)

Tighten Up!

Worked on some of the armor pieces and tightened up the work overall. Gave him an older look so that he would fit the role of an old wise leader.

Armor Update

Here's an update on Myscete. Went with skeleton armor made up of large creatures of his world. I called his planet Mere, after the french word for mother and named his people Zivilis, kind of hinting at their civilized nature. Also came up with a story for his expression.

Link to story:

Wednesday, March 12, 2008


Going to go in a deflate his muscles a bit more. Make them lean and more cut.

Switched it up a bit

Changed up the design a bit after some valuable critiques from some friends. Going more for an exaggerated swimmer anatomy now. More pics soon!

Body ready for mudbox

Here's the hands and feet. The hands come into play with his weapons which he swings around but can also curl up to hold them firm. Gave him amphibious feet so that he could also walk on ground.
