GATE 7 – speed 3d scene

This was done in around 5-7 hours as an exercise of speed modeling in Blender. The idea was to create a little scene that could serve as a set where I could place cameras and take shots at varying angles and focal points. In the end I used the Blender Game mode to add crude light and mood. I didn’t use anything but default materials except for some of the neons and LEDs (where i just set a color and a >0 value for emit) and some fog. That’s it, the idea was to achieve a 3d base for overpainting with the most basic of tools in a short time. As for the mannequins that populate the scene I chose not to go with DAZ because they would take too much to pose, export, import, place, correct issues, re-pose, re-import, rinse and repeat. Therefore I made those bulky mannequins that i could twist on the spot.

I am definetly going to streamline my 3d piepline for 2d illustration, the advantages are great in a concept art environment.

Here are some shots I took while trying to light the scene. I had in mind a Mars base / medium distress type of mood. In the end I went all Alien 3 on it 🙂

Neuromancer II

First post for 2017! Let there be many more like this one!

neuromancer2_sm

And now… the process!

  1. I wanted to expand the concept from my previous piece: https://www.artstation.com/artwork/BOKr6 So i started off with that sketch and expanded it.neuromancer_wip1
  2. Here I needed to see a color mockup. Easily done by working with adjustment layers.

3. I knew i wanted to have more detail. The idea of this character was to be a Shakespearean self questioning robot, made up from various mechanical pieces and organic matter. To represent the essence of flesh and machine brought together rather forcefully.neuromancer_wip3

4.The character was supposed to hold a human skull in his hand. But the painting was not very clear. So i went in Blender and made a 3d model that I later integrated in the final painting.3d

B-G0N3 the Lunar Android

Daily sketch no2.

Keep them coming, ice cream man.

What if we sent androids on the Moon to build a colony? They don’t die, they are autonomous, they can be controlled from far away and they don’t vote!

Meet Jonie, the space marine. He’s green. 4.jpg

Flyby

A speedpainting I did using a rough 3d base. Spaceships, space station and typical sci fi stuff.

And here is a process log. I did a few color variations before settling on the greensih one. All in all around it took me under 3 hours, i think.

Neuromancer

What do you do on a perfect autumn Saturday? You paint cyborgs and skulls, because that’s what you like to do! This one took me around 3 hours, but the easiest and quickest part was putting color and lights on it. I included the process images for a comparison of my workflow.

Götterdämmerung

I made this painting thinking how much technology is part of our lives. This is a darker side of my introspection. Human race has evolved from nothing to being it’s own god. We’ve understood the laws of nature and we managed to develop technology and use it as a means to ease life, but also to control and destroy life. In the end, if we are not careful, we might end up consumed by this very same technology. Thus, the Dawn of Gods.

And now…el processo!

Squiddy

Sketch for fun, sci fi squid concept art. I might continue this in the future.

Littleones – Churchill

“We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight in the fields, we shall fight in the hills”…but not if you’re a legless cyborg with bloody biomechanical implants, you won’t! I got inspired by the Ghost in the Shell and decided to give it a little spin. Ok, maybe not that little: Churchill + The Terminator + Ghost in the Shell. And a lot of hoses!Churchil_clChurchill_bwchurchill_mindmap
