Grendel's Cave

Been pretty busy lately, and this is all I have to show for the moment. Just trying to figure out what Grendel's cave is, hence the one camera angle. I want to figure out what the surrounding area looks like, since it's the closest thing I have to a set in this story. I still don't have the mood I want, but I'm leaning in the direction of the bottom one. The Plane is supposed to be a Ju-88. It's very distinctive in the air, but less so in a crash site. Most planes disintegrate on impact, so it's going to be a little tricky working this one out. On a side note, HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!

doodles for new project

Exploring for a new project. There are no tigers in Africa, the Maasai do not live in jungles..... but there is a thread there... somewhere. It's a version of Beowulf that includes most things I don't know how to draw. Tigers, Jungles, Trees, Plants, Maasai warriors..... smart Ryan, real smart.

Last of EarthSea

This is it for now. Learned alot. Here's the last of the color... stuff. I learned that they aren't really keys, don't really convey mood and are more graphic novely than for film. Fail. Also, I put a 10th of my descent into madness for one shot. Revised over and over and over.... you get the point.

Some House Sketches and Shader Packetry

I wish I had something better to post after the deluge of nice comments... but this all I've got for the moment. Anyone in my class knows I'm pulling my hair out over one thumbnail that I can't seem to get right. On another note, thanks to Adam, I now know this architecture style is called Tudor. And yes, the shader packet is basically photo collage, but no 3d. I might tweak it a bit more.

Color pass

Middleton gave me some great feed back, and I'm reworking some of the others. So this is a 1st(and a half) pass.

Process? *edited*

A psuedo process walk through, with step by step notes in the comments. Let me know if this helps anyone, or if you have any questions. *I found I had missed a step. Step 3 is what I had when I blocked in the color, and 4 was basically the same with a little more refining. You can see where I lost the drawing now.*
