Quake 2 MD2 – Mazen Opossum

Mazen Title.

Because we were super bored, we are republishing our very first Quake 2 character, Mazen.

A long time ago and many computers past we created our very first quake2 model. It was supposed to be an anthropomorphic Opossum by the name of “Mazen” and he was a model that can be used in quake2 for multiplayer deathmatches. Although getting the exact date and time of creation was difficult. I wrote a PDF tutorial on making quake2 and quake 3 models which had a creation date of October 14th of 2001. However, the last modify dates of Mazen was March 03, of 2004. So we will go off of the last known edit date and place this blog entry on that date to not alarm anyone that this is “New” content we are adding here.

Between the creation of Quake 2 XP edition which had high-res textures as well as the RTX edition. We couldn’t just release the classic Opossum model by itself. For starters it couldn’t even load in Quake 2 XP because the PCX images used were in a non-standard format. Well. We corrected that, as well as videos and downloads showing the entire process.

The Green Book – Sketches from 2001

Sketches from 2001 – A.K.A. The Green Book

Here you will find the archive of my sketches from 2001. There is no significance about a green sketchbook except for the fact that it was on sale at the time I purchased it. No matter, here is where you will find a lot of the sketches from the late 2001 era. A lot of this was made when I was going to M.A.T.C. for a while and I had some classes in between and there was a 1 hour delay between classes. so one hour a day for a year, and I filled an entire sketchbook. Most of the sketches within this book were either reference sheets or things that I used to play around with my Sumi-E Ink Pen. As a note, this is part 2 of my green book series and if you would like to go back to the first part you may click here.

Epic – Human Character

Epic Title.

Epic – A space scene

Epic is another color picture from my portfolio. This time a human! Yes, I know! I do draw them. Not as often as I should though. Epic was done with PhotoShop and lightwave 6.0. It was a little experiment to play with reflection in the background as well as an attempt to add some balance in my portfolio. This area will show from start to finish what I did on this one.

Rhino Head complete full Color Artwork

Rhino - Title

Scraps of a rhino character made.

Rhino. For this sketch, I decided to ink and color and throw together a backdrop in lightwave using an array multiplier and then colored one of my quickly inked drawings on top. This species and type of character does not often get much for draw-time as they should.  The basic inking was done with a pencil for the raw sketches. afterward, using a Sumi-E pen just for inking and to see how my pen was operating at the time.
