And now for something completely different - 3D!

Here is my one and only foray into 3D art for videogames. These were done as a test when I applied to Three Rings, over two years ago. At the time they thought they might be hiring me to work on Bang! Howdy, (now defunct) and I would have been doing lots of modeling and texturing. It was a western-themed game and I made this fun low-poly train as a set piece. It was never used for anything, and I think it was the last time I really touched Maya! Maybe I will post the character design test I did for them as well.

Terrible Yellow Eyes

Here is my contribution to Terrible Yellow Eyes, a tribute site to Maurice Sendak's "Where the Wild Things Are." This was a lot of fun to paint.

I've also uploaded a desktop wallpaper version of this piece to Flickr.

Here is some process on the piece:

As you can see I change my mind alot when painting. I'm constantly trying different colors, shapes, poses, etc. Sometimes the whole thing can get so muddled that I will open up my original sketch file just to make sure I've still got the essence of my original drawing.
