Thesis – 12/18/2014


Today marks my last class on campus at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. It’s with mixed feelings that I’m leaving the campus I was so excited to be a part of a year ago. Things change quickly and so do priorities, when I started this semester I never thought I’d be employed at a fantastic company that is teaching me more than I imagined I could in a few months of work.

Now onto my thesis… something that needs to be done by next semester but after this class ends today will be the last thing on my mind until all of my clients are extremely happy. I have been sculpting as quickly as I can on the pieces but I didn’t quite hit my mark this semester. I’ll finish it during the break and begin the long process of bringing these guys to life inside of Marmoset.

Thesis – 12/4/2014

My thesis is at a point where the Zbrush phase needs to end. I’m resculpting them all into the same style and focusing on some forms and uniting them with clothing folds that are sculpted in the same manner.

I’m beginning to work on a color palette for the characters, but seeing as how many of their clothes are taken directly from the real world their palettes are picked for me but I plan to unite them through saturation and value. I’ll be following the Dota 2 art guide to texture them for the most part and keeping it simple and painterly is key for me on this project.
