Bus Interior - 1

Taking a little break from the space suit. It's pretty much done, except for getting it set up in UDK.

A couple friends and I are going to start a little game project fairly soon, and to get a head-start, I've started working on this bus interior. All I'm going to say is you will be driving a bus, and the game will take place in a desert.

The aim is to have this running on an iPad.

Space Suit - WIP 2

Really going slow with this. Between school and one active contract job, I'm pretty occupied. But I'm still moving forward with this suit. Texturing is getting close to done. Here's the Maya viewport render.

The low-poly geometry sits at a little over 13,000 triangles, with 512x512 textures.

Next thing I'm working on is testing it in UDK, and then I'll finish up on all the textures and stick a fork in it.

Space Suit - WIP 1

The last week, I've been off of school for break, so I started this little project. This is the almost-final block-in for the suit before I do a ZBrush pass on it and get it down to a real-time spec.

Suit design was derived from the manga PLANETES. I'm working on a head bust to go into the suit, so it's not going to be empty. Here's the reference sheet I'm working off of:

Working on space dudes is so much fun.

Server Rack Doodle

Did this well over a month ago. Doodled this out in about an hour for the hell of it.

It's all subdivisional. Not sure I'm going to finish this or do a low-poly version of it or texture. Maybe I'll revisit it in the future.

Ishmael Sculpt WIP 2

Stopping point for now. Need to focus on a couple of upcoming papers.

As far as the sculpt goes, all I really need to do now is get some fur in, and I can start worrying about making the game-ready version.

Ishmael Sculpt WIP 1

Been working on this guy in my spare time for a few weeks now. It's based off of Josh Hodge's Ishmael concept (from Purely Conceptual) with his blessing and feedback. Still need to add the scarf, sculpt in the fur, and then I can proceed with knocking this down for the low-poly version.

Trying to wrap this thing up, but school work always seems to interfere.
