More German Shepherd Update

One of the reasons why some of my personal work take so much time is the fact I plan multiple uses for them. Sometimes things don't fit well or new information comes in and there's a need to adjust things to make an image feel authentic, if not accurate.

The German Shepherd piece is not different. I've started out creating an illustrated catalog of mainly Pastoral Type dogs, but thought the Shep could also be used to illustrate dog vests used by K9 units.

There's still a bit more to go for the Vest, but the Shep is otherwise done. German Shepherd owners do chime in if there are any inaccuracies.

German Shepherd with K9 Storm Intruder Vest (update)

I'm catching up on lost time. Last work year was spent doing something else that eventually didn't bear much fruit.

After a barrage of recent projects, I'm starting to dust off the older, shelved drawings and its time to get things up again.

Here's the updated copy of the German Shep with a K9 Storm Intruder vest. Hopefully it won't take another year to finish.  There's obviously much work to be done.  The current update serves as a way for me to block in the overlapping vest and see what I need to be doing with the pooch's fur.

Mk48 Rework Update 2

Finishing up the linework little by little. Getting the proportions right is probably the biggest challenge. Added a bit of tones to get a feel of how things will work out, but will probably throw it out later on when I start to get into detail.

 Here's a view of the head.

Blackfoot Studios Kickstarter Drive

Blackfoot Studios is made up of former Red Storm/Ubisoft developers who worked on the original Rainbow6 games back in the 90s. They're trying to bring the tactical shooter genre back into the world of videogames. They're looking to bring in US$425,000 to get a working build shipped by 2013 for both Windows and MacOS. I've got nothing to do with Blackfoot Studios, but as a fan of the tactical FPS genre (ie completely unlike Call of Duty) I really want to see them get their funding and finish this title. Here's a video of the pre alpha build. It looks really promising. And if you're keen, head on over and drop them some dough.

Mk48 Rework Progress Update

2 steps forward one step back. Triple check source materials to confirm everything, then triple check again. This is why it takes me a while to get these done :D

Mk48 Rework

A lot of the groundwork for this piece had been done a couple of years ago. But one thing after another left me unable to get it wrapped up. Something else bothered me a lot about the pose and I decided to give it a full rework.
