I was planning to have some more foliage to share on here but that will hopefully be up soon.
I've been working on an art test for a position at a company, which can be seen below. =)

Plant Concept_01_Bamboo

Before I got carried away with more sculpting, I decided I should get started on some plant-life concept for this island.  Today's piece is some bamboo.

Also, I finally found out how to stop blogspot from "auto-enhancing" aka ramping contrast up to full on all my uploaded images!!  Unfortunately, that also means I now have a google+ account...

Map, Bull and Ant

I've decided to start a project that will force me to concept and create things I haven't touched on much in the past.
As a result, I thought of making my own island and populating it with creatures, plants, characters etc.
This will also lead me to create landscapes and environments.
To begin, here's a map I drew of said island.
It's not 100% accurate; more to get a general sense of landmarks which I can build upon later.

I've also been working on a couple of sculpts that are still WIP.
So here they are!  A bull and an ant. =)

UPDATE: Beast of Burden.
Despite looking pretty unbreakable, the bull design wasn't doing it for me so I've changed it to a sort of goat creature.  I want this to end up as something that would be used as extra man-power on a farm and/or used for sport by pitting them against each other.

SkyPirate Girl Scorpion Coloured

Here's the low poly version with 1k textures that I'm planning to rig and animate.
Below it are some renders from the high poly sculpt in Zbrush.
Not bad considering it's gone from 24million polys to roughly 4000 quads.

Unfortunately blogspot has distorted my renders again but you can just about make out all the detail I've sculpted in..

SkyPirate Girl Scorpion

For some reason Blogger has darkened this image a lot so a better version can be seen here:

She's all UV'd and ready to paint so that will be the next thing on my list. =)

UPDATE: I've coloured over a few renders in photoshop to try out different colour schemes.
A lot of detail is still missing, this is just block colour overlays.

Since she's a sky pirate, I want colours that encourage an aggressive appearance so the pinks and softer colours don't really work.

Siren Sculpt & Seasons Greetings

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
As a result, I've had less time to work on these but I have a new one to show!
I've also decided that, instead of a male and female version of each character I had planned, I'm only doing one of each.  So I'll be taking the male demon forward along with this one and the next 2.

I've roughed out a shape I like for the Golem character next.
Once I'm 100% happy with her, she'll be made to look more rock-like in her appearance rather than fat/flesh.

Demon WIP_3 & Female Siren

Finished the detailing on the female demon character and made a base mesh for the next model on my list.
There will be a male version of the bottom image to come after.

Demon WIP_2 & Female Demon

I've (I think) finished sculpting on the male demon and all it needs now is a little colour, which I'm going to do in bulk with the other 6 models I'm planning to sculpt.
Below these shots you'll see the WIP sculpt for the female demon too.

Demon WIP

Firstly, I am still working on the old man from the previous post.  I'm just not gonna share him again until I'm confident about the cloth I'm currently sculpting for him. =)
In the meantime, here's a demon I've been working on over today and yesterday.
As always, any feedback is much appreciated!

Old Man Sculpt WIP_02

Arm sculpt update for the head from a couple days ago.
I'm not sure if I've gone over-board with the wrinkles but I want him looking quite old so I'm happy with it for now.
