So I've become reunited with an exquisite passion for Batman all over again. After the Nolan movies, revisiting "The Animated Series", The newly released DC animated movies (Gotham Knight, Year One, TDK Returns Part 1) and the Arkham video games.
I went back to the comic book store and grabbed a fantastic series by David Finch, Paul Jenkins and Richard Friend called Batman The Dark Knight (The New 52!). The art is so incredible (David Finch) and the story is all the best things that I love about the Batman ethos. It just recreated the same obsession I had with this character years ago, that I only now can appreciate fully.
So having said that, I wanted to take a stab at a conceptual story-arc called "The Dark Knight : Gotham Revival" and this would act as the teaser.

I'm starting going into a different direction with the sculpting. I think bringing my actual illustrative style into the pieces personalizes a lot more for me. Here is a little fox I had sketched out that I tried to translate into 3D. More to come!

So I've tried a little something different this time around. Building a female face and adding some fun mechanical implants/wires/plugs etc. Just having fun exploring the different creations this medium can provide. Enjoy!

So the sculpting continues. Starting to really get the hang of things, and beginning to build out more features (such as this bitchin' pony tail). I like messing with the styles and doing something a bit more smooth and stylized. Onto a new one....

Well I took the plunge.
After years of procrastination and staying focused on traditional 2D illustration, I decided to download a great program called 'Sculptris'. After watching a video of how intuitive the software is, I knew it would be an easy transition of applying the same fundamentals of character rendering. I was right. It's been such a smooth process, and I'm really happy with the outcome. Here are some progress pics of the very first day exploring the program.
Then later that night, I couldn't resist another:
I think I'm officially obsessed, and excited... perhaps a new direction?

Here's a little random illustration I did of comedian Adam Carolla. I love his podcast and listen everyday. I figured I would do something geared towards something other than his comedic prowess, racing Datsuns! This shows him going balls-out behind the wheel (without helmet I know, c'mon it looks cooler!) featuring my concept of an "Ace Racing" logo/fire suit. GET IT ON!
Below is the progress of the piece...
Here's a little preview sketch inspired by the classic 1982 horror film "The Thing". It's a great flick with awesome REAL visual FX (make-up & animatronics) and Kurt Russell's bitchin' beard. I'll post the colour version when's it's complete!
