In this very brief overview, I discuss how this image came together, starting as a spontaneous Zbrush sculpt that gradually evolved into a finished narrative illustration. Without getting technical, I show progress images that emphasize that while I usually start with a concept, sometimes it is fun to figure things out along the way.
While making my image 'Guardian', I only recorded a small portion while working on one of the insects: modeling, UVs and sculpting. This is extremely time-lapsed down to just six minutes, so expect to get a little dizzy. Hopefully the music helps you keep up!
This video shows my progress developing a creature from design to animation in seven days. Created for a Gnomon master class that stopped at look-development, I continued to develop the creature for a new Gnomon Workshop training series that includes twenty-five hours of lecture, a 175 page book, eight DVDs, sixty-six HD 1080p clips for students to use and even a private forum for discussion. Coming soon... :)
