Black Star Project – Old Lightwave Project File

Black Star Information:

Black Star  was a little project rendered in total of 2 weeks with Lightwave version 10 for windows. This was rendered using a thread mode of 3 cores leaving the 4th core on my machine to do whatever I feel like.  It was very simply generated using bevel, extrude, and jitter with a polygon multiply to add a little bit of chaos to each one. Black star was originally intended to be a small icon on a old website very long time ago. It has now been rendered at 1080p for your viewing pleasure.

Hellcat the feline

Hellcat the feline.

Hellcat was another bit of a production I did in mid 2000’s trying to focus more of coloring and style. once again, from a profile sheet to poses sketch out to the final creations colored in Photoshop and rendered in Lightwave. This one I spent a bit of time on as it was one of my characters for the longest time in the 90’s. A lot of drawsings I could not calculate how long it took me. But I do know the background that was rendered out in LightWave took about 7 hours to do because I had it rendering at 600dpi.

Epic – Human Character

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

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 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.

Flay / Hyena Colored Art

Flay the hyena!

What started out as just a simple sketch evolved into completed pictures and 3-d artwork of a character I dubbed “Flay” the Hyena. I was toying with the concept of cel-shading and seeing if i can do shading using only material properties and no special texture UV maps. See the results for yourself. Nearing the end my 3-d program lightwave was making decent hand-colored pictures.
