Dodo Turnaround

Here's a turnaround I did of the dodo for somebody who's making a 3D model. Tried to make things a little easier for him.

Since he's also gonna be in my thesis film, I could use this when I hand my designs/concept work to the thesis committee later this year. I'll make turnarounds for the other 2 birds sometime soon.

Here's some Neanderthal doodles that I did during my anthropology class.

Even More From the Bird's Point of View...

I did a bit more work on that "Birds in a Creepy Tomb" picture in Photoshop. I added color, some highlights, shadows, textures.... & stuff like that.

So it started like this...

Then I inked them digitally, while changing a few things. Started coloring...

Finished coloring the characters...

Added some effects (fire, textures, gradients)...

& then some shadows & highlights. The characters are starting to look a bit more dimensional now.

There's still a few things I want to add to the picture, including a background & maybe some cobwebs & creepy-crawlies around the tomb. I'm really starting to get used to Photoshop. It took me a few years, but I'm getting there.

(By the way, the names & dates on the tomb have historical significance)

Music is For the Birds

I finally figured out what my thesis is gonna be about, & it's gonna star this ragtag group of friends of the feathered kind.
