Lady of the Earth

The last of my Elemental Goddesses series. The rest in the series are:

Lady of the Water

and

Lady of the Flame

and

Lady of Metal

and

Lady of the Wind

So, this is a wallpaper of an Earth Elemental Goddess.

I’m trying to capture the “mood” of each elemental where water is sombre and serious while fire is wild and happy. Metal was supposed to be a strong, powerful character and Air a free spirited fairy

With Earth, I was trying to channel a life giving entity (hence the “World Tree”). Also, I thought the Earth was different from the other elementals, so I gave it a rainbow-colored background rather than a single toned one. The figure was more than a little inspired by The Birth of Venus by Botticelli

Lady of the Wind

Lady of the Wind

Ok, this is a continuation of the series of nude figures I am doing. Previous pieces in this series are…

Lady of the Water

and

Lady of the Flame

and

Lady of Metal

This new one is of a Wind (or Air) Elemental Goddess.

I’m trying to capture the “mood” of each elemental where Water is sombre and serious while Fire is wild and free. Metal was supposed to be a strong, powerful character.

With Air, I was going for a free spirited fairy kinda look.
Technique wise, I had a bit of problem thinking of a way to render something non physical like “air”, so I used leaves to try to create a “moving” effect… not sure if I succeeded

Lady of Metal

Iron Maiden

Still experimenting with elemental effects for now. This is one of first pieces I am trying out with an original character. It’s also the third nude figure I am doing after

Lady of the Water

 

and

Lady of the Flame

 

After the first two pieces, I decided I should do an elemental goddesses series.

So, this is a wallpaper of a Metal Elemental Goddess.

I’m trying to capture the “mood” of each elemental where water is sombre and serious while fire is wild and free. This third piece, metal, I am looking for a strong, powerful character and hence the “punching through a brick wall” effect

Technique wise, I am trying to create a Silver Surfer like effect for her skin, but I am currently lacking the necessary skills. Will prob revisit this one day

Lady of the Flames

The Goddess of Fire

I know it’s been a long time, but we’re taking a break from travelling, so I’m giving this a try again…

Anyway, I’m experimenting with elemental effects for now. This is one of first pieces I am trying out with an original character. It’s also the second nude figure I am doing after Lady of the Water

I should probably do an elemental goddesses series.

Jean Grey – Super Model

3rd piece in my Jean Grey series.

This would be the Grant Morrison’s New X Men version of Jean. The period where they all decided that spandex was not practical for the X Men. I personally think it is a funky/modern take on their costume. This was especially for Jean, whom I think would look like a hipster Super Model in the outfit.

With this piece, I am attempting to create a piece that looks like a magazine spread. There are 3 elements in here that I am experimenting with but was never very comfortable with:

1) Fashion piece (because very simply… I am a guy…)
2) Typography… hope it looks a magazine article’s
3) Black and White renders (I always like colors more… so in the end I succumbed and added a dash of colors still…

Let’s Go Boys

Going through a bit of a dry spell..

I thrashed the last three pieces that I did because they are too horrible to show. Hours down the drain there…

This is the only halfway decent piece that I did recently… it’s also my first ensemble piece… Took hours just to render… then more hours on Photoshop… I really should get a faster comp.. 😀

Not completely satisfied with Superman, might redo him one day in the distant future..

Still trying to find my “style” so C&C most welcome.

Thanks!

The Devil You Know…

My latest model – Matt Murdock aka Daredevil.

Surprisingly, I had less trouble with the full body modeling of Daredevil than I had with Green Lantern.

A portrait. The hardest part for this is definitely his eyes. Daredevil is supposed to be blind and his mask covers his eyes. How do you make a model emote without eyes?

And finally… an action shot…. Felt the previous modeling’s were pretty “static”, so decided to try an action shot. Not sure if this translated well into pictures.
