Yikes! Has it really been over 3 years since I've posted something here?!? Oops!
In my defense, this last several years has been nuts. Life has taken me for a rollercoaster ride unlike anything I've experienced before. I also ended up taking a little break from my art to pursue a love affair with collecting Transformers. THEY'RE NOT TOYS, THEY'RE ACTION FIGURES!!!
Anyway, I hope to get the whole art thing kick-started again. It has been my true passion since I could pick up a pencil. Please forgive me, baby. Those Transformers don't mean nothing to me. I loved you all along.

On a side note, I need to apologize for not posting for the last couple of weeks. I have been crazy busy, and haven't been able to do much of my own art. I'll keep trying to post every week, but it still hasn't slowed down enough to be able to fully commit to it.

While I have done a lot of realistic characters for different jobs that I've worked on, I normally don't do them in my spare time (as anyone who has followed this blog will undoubtably notice). When I built him, I was really intrigued with the facial features and structure of older people. I wanted to build a head with cool wrinkles and definition. The only textures on this is on the eyes - everything is just geometry.

Anyway... this is Joey. I've been working on him for some time now, but finished him up recently. I'm also using him as an example for an article I've written. He's a fun guy, and I think he'll be popping up here and there on this blog.

I wish I would've had time to color it tonight. Hopefully, I can color it soon. I've got some fun things I want to do with the lighting on this.

At any rate, this is a balloon wizard I did a couple of years ago. It was a randomly drawn character that I drew when I was working at Microsoft Games.

I just finished this up for my sister's friend. I guess they're going to make t-shirts out of it. They haven't seen it yet, so I hope they like it. :)

I know this may seem a bit morbid for a baby picture, but at the time it went along with the cross bones fashion that was going on at the time.

The other meaning this picture has is for a hope that this new year will be a good one. I'm not saying that 2009 was absolutely horrible for me (there were some nice things that happened), but I just really hope that 2010 is a lot better. I've faced a lot of challenges last year, and I'd really like this year to be a lot better.

At any rate, I did these several months ago for Christmas presents that Jen and I gave to our parents. When Maggi Quackenbush did our family pictures, we had her take some of the kids posing with imaginary birds. The kids had a lot of fun doing it, and I had a lot of fun drawing them in.

I drew this during conference. I used only a pen and drew it in a dark room, so it's pretty rough. I was going to color it, but it looks like I won't have time to do that, either.

The challenge that I did this for was Lurpy Cop Sea Animal Female. I built this fish to be like a officer/patrol car hybrid; with the body painted with the colors of a patrol car (I tried to make the top fin look like red & blue police lights), and topped with a classic bobby hat that holds a starfish badge.
Don't mess with her... she'll jack you up!

As I'm sure that in the final render, you probably won't be able to see the detail that I put into this starfish (it is only a small part of the whole character), I thought I'd just post this now, as a sneak peak for what I will hopefully be posting tonight.
I should also point out that the center of the star fish is fairly smooth because there will be a cartoony face there.

This image was for the last CG Character Challenge, which was Crazy Cook Dog Female. I only really had time to get the modeling and VERY quick texture job done on it. There were several other things that I wanted to add to make her more feminine, but I just didn't have the time or energy. I'm just going to have to call 'er good until I have time to re-visit the old gal.

This is my submission for this week's CG Character Challenge, which was Twitterpated Computer Nerd Insect Male. Because of my lack of time this week, I ended up using a bee that I created several years ago for my sister, Sharman (if you're interested, you can read the back story here).
I pretty much threw this together in about an hour.
