Painis Cupcake art tf2 i will eat you

Its been a year since I played Team Fortress 2, I kind of miss it but not enough to play it :P However I finally caved in and downloaded Steam Film Maker so see how it compares to After Effects. It’s easier than I thought it would be and has similar features to After Effects. Setting up objects and props are a bit awkward but that’s ok. I did a test video. I might upload it later.

Alex lip-sync animation test

maugryph:

This is my first Lip Sync test I’ve ever done. Took me two hours to do 3 seconds of dialog. I have a new respect for animators.

This is my first attempt a lip-syncing a character to the dialog by manually keyframing and tweening. It took a couple hours to match the vocals to the mouth…

Monster Failure (Daily Doodle)

A monster doodle that I dilly dallied too long with. I didn’t get nearly as far as I hoped.

Gatorman (Daily Doodle)

It’s been a while since I drew a gator. I compared it to on I did over a year ago.

oh dear

I realized it was a mistake to abandon my daily doodles. It is important for me to do a daily doodle before working on big projects.  I helps loosen me up. I will do this every day. I might miss a day here and there but I plan of being consistent

I always set limitations to challenge myself. Here are the the two:

1.I can only work on in for 30 minutes to and 1 hour. Once the timer goes off. I…

Alex 3d Model WIP

maugryph:

To be honest, I hated the first model I did of alex> I screwed up the mouth morphs. The uvs sucked . And it had some nasty polygons all over the thing.
I am much happier with this model as it resembles my concept art more closely.

Some concepts for Alex and Cruz. This project will began on Jan of 2015. It is a short comic spoof with Cruz as a superhero (one of his weaknesses is chocolate  FYI). These concepts are part of this story.

Alex and Cruz as Creatures

maugryph:

Originally I was going to revert Alex and Cruz into normal animals instead of anthro ones. But it limited our story telling options. so we reverted back to anthro animals

This is a mixed media digital painting that combines 2d painting with 3d modeling. The models themselves are a WIP and might look totally different by the time I finish them.  The…

I participated in Von Glitschka‘s 21 Day Drawing Challenge (link :http://www.lynda.com/Design-Illustration-tutorials/21-Day-Drawing-Challenge/). Truthfully I was hoping to upload the new challenge drawing every day, but I have been swamped with homework this month. Being the genus that I am, I took 15 credit hours at 3 different colleges. I am almost done with a 8 week psychology course, and I spend around 6-9 hours a week on the darn thing. It’s driving me crazy. So I haven’t post in a month. But I did successfully finish the challenge. I have a friend join me on the challenge and it helped a lot. I enjoyed the challenge, my only gripe is that it was supposed to be for all skill levels but my non-artist friend struggled with it, I had to help him along and teach him techniques that the videos did not mention. I actually enjoyed teaching him. However, the course made him discover that he loves drawing and had decided to continue with it, which I am excited about. I definitely will do another monthly challenge after I finish dreaded Psychology get caught up on other things. (It will be a while).

Evil Eye (Free Online Game you can play in your browser) (Physics Puzzler) V.1

Click on the Image above to play the game.

I have decided that before I program my epic RPG, I should do a few simpler games first. First up is ‘Evil Eye’. Guide the eye to the blue pad! The intinal release has 16 levels and can be compleated in 10 to 20 minutes depending on how good you are with puzzle games. Try to get the lowest score by blitzing the game. The lower the score the more epic…

I was trying to boost my concept work. Still have some work to do on this one. I’m getting better at painting creatures. A good animal anatomy book does wonders. Also in this post is a design for my co protagonist named Alex. He is a dragon want’s to be a human (a inverted otherkin :D) and can transform himself in one for a short amount of time.  He is.. awkward and has trouble fitting in with either humans or his kind. some armor for females. and  very cool monster concept

I was commissioned to draw a sheet of action poses. This is one of the funnest commissions I have done so far. Gar is one of the best clients I have worked with.
