Hey all. This is my sketch book!
Here’s the thumbnail:
Honestly, I’m very much in the still-learning stage so some of the work featured here may end up in a WIP thread somewhere. You’ll also see a lot of things that obviously came off a BGuru tutorial.
I kind of shoot for a minimalist render on most projects - simple colors and little to no post. This may change as I get into character animation, but for now it’s how I prefer to work and see what results I can get.
This is bourbon. Background plane image is the light, rendered in Cycles.
No, there is not too much bourbon.
This is a piece I did after I got done fully modeling that Colt you see there.
The 1911 has always had an appeal to me, no matter how anachronistic its mechanisms are, so I modeled one in full - on the right hand gun, you’ll see the button for the clip release actually has individually extruded bumps.
The grips are from CGTextures.com and have displacement on them.
The lack of metal texture isn’t for artistic effect - it’s because unwrapping those mothers is too much for my little mind to handle right now.
There are definitely things that could be fixed and I’ll probably redo a good 80% of those meshes from what I’ve learned since starting the project.
Tell me what you think! Harsher critiques I’d prefer to see when I post in the WIP threads, but, eh, freedom of speech, dammit!
