Adventures in Autodesk Maya! Here are the scenes that I created in Maya for Professor Maloney’s Digital Form, Space and Lighting class. It was hell to learn, but I came out alive and smarter than before. The swamp and tree house are supposed be be based off of a voodoo witch’s house in the bayou.
Below the swamp images is my character design of Odin and his ravens. I’m modeling him now. That’s his turn-around sketch. I drew it with a Copic marker. Under that is the beginning of his torso sculpt in Maya. He’s going to look so awesome!
Now that’s my kind of still-life.
“Split Personality” This my favorite blind-contour drawing so far. This drawing was executed without looking at my paper. It takes incredible focus. I think blind-contour is the most raw and honest form of drawing. No lies can go on my paper when I don’t even lift my marker or look at the drawing. This is how only I can draw. I love this drawing because it somehow communicates how I feel on some days. Inside of my mind is a rational human-being living beside many fragmented and deformed monsters and ghosts. I don’t think I’ve ever successfully shown feeling this before. I feel like I have done so here with just a few lines and four minutes.
I doodled some crows for fun before going to bed.
I don’t want to stop painting. I love it so much and these ladies are looking good. Alas, Maya calls.
A couple more 30 second Copic marker gestures.
My personal favorite 30 second drawing. It reminds me of Boccioni’s “Unique Forms” sculpture.
