Robot sketching

I've been threatening to do some kind of robot sculpture and been failing miserably coming up with a sketch. I started this one at work during lunch and added more later in photoshop. I think I like it so far, now I just have to finish defining what all is going on there.

solar pop

this is my soda pop can solar heater- not my invention. i saw it online. free heat!

Little Boy Blue

Back in the spring I decided to take a story I wrote back in my later years of college and turn it into a web comic. For a while I had been keeping the comic up on Tumblr, took a long hiatus to work on other projects, but I'm putting it all back online and  will be starting a new blog that is more suited to viewing it page by page. I'm uploading the first 5 pages. I just completed page 5,  which is why I am uploading the whole set as new content.

Sculpture Update

I think this is finally ready to bake, mainly because it is becoming so top-heavy and I am hoping that a bake will give me something more sturdy to work with. Not happy with the lower legs and feet yet.

emergency armature procedure: i thought they smelled bad on the outside

i realized too late it would need some support . i cut out a hole in the bottom, made a block with two holes to fit , cut some rebar, made a base and slapped it together. and viola! no more earthbound brachiosaurus. the lesson here is to think two steps ahead but try to get in the habit of 3 steps ahead. i thought this one i could sculpt just sitting on the table. not so

So I'm working on a bard character for a personal project. It's hard to make out certain parts of the character but essentially he is blowing bubbles into a massive collapsible woodwind instrument (not smoking a bong.) I'm not quite sure what the motive for this behavior is. This was a difficult pose because the weight of the body has to be balanced very carefully and whenever you have a thigh and a half come together like this, finding the line can be difficult. 

My sketches are always a lot of trial and error (mostly error.) Often-times I feel like I'm scribbling over and over until a line falls into place. Anyways in the future there will be a more completed drawing, I will probably lay the color in directly over the sketch digitally. Below is a series of thumbs, the middle being the closest to the detailed sketch. 

sketch for the brachiasaurus in house lifespan piece

proportionally, this is too short length wise. the actual piece is 4 feet wide and about a foot tall

custom skesis aaron and i discussed sculpting.

mine will be more pterodactly like,in a wheel chair being pushed by a dung beetle like monster
