I finally got a new monitor. Now I can actually see what I'm drawing, which I've found helpful in the past. Let's see if I'm a bit better about updating now.
Anyways, this is the color scheme I originally had in mind when drawing Hans, though I've been thinking about changing the orange to purple. Also worried that the stripe down his front makes him look too much like a wannabe superhero.
Hopefully my next post will be something besides Hans, I need a bit of a break from the guy. He's always a bit grumpy.

I've been working on a Maya model as a project for a portfolio I hope to submit at the beginning of next week. The character is from my third year film at CalArts back in 2006, one of a pair of unlucky chaps who are stuck cleaning up the refuse of the solar system for a living. I liked the film, probably the only film I made there that I can say that about, but among other problems I have with it I never really did have solid designs for the two guys until the end of it, and that always kind of bugged me. So my project for the end of the week is to have Hans here pretty much hammered down and have the modeling/texturing done for him in Maya. I figured I'd kick the week off with a sketch of him. Tomorrow I want to get some facial expressions to show, in addition to getting some more time in on his model.
I'd like to get some more designs in next week... the other character, not to mention their ship and maybe some other random spacemen/ships and some aliens. I've been on a bit of a sci-fi kick anyways recently.
