Dragonball Evolution!

(journal was edited because it was too long, vulgar and irrelevant to the actual purpose of the post, this is meant to be a portfolio blog afterall)

Heres a concept sculpt for Piccolo.  My own version of the movie version.  I've tried the giant turban on his head, the humongous brow muscles, the purple pants and blue sash from the comics.  Turned out looking like a genie vampire from hell.  So I stopped looking at the reference and tried doing my own thing.  I'm thinkin maybe the live action route wasn't the best idea, and they should have made it completely cg animated, without trying to ground things to reality.  It would have been some epic stuff.

Concept Sculpt

Getting ready for a possible career as a conept artist and digital sculptor for production, so decided to combine the two and do a concept sculpt.  Something a pre production artist would give to the 3d team as a guide.  Started in the morning when I woke up, and worked on it on and off.  Zbrush and photoshop.

Early Morning Concept Sketch

Was browsing through artist Robh Ruppel's blog who mentions the book "The Power of Less," which talks about having a morning routine to do things you want to do more of.  Reminds me of the phrase "you are what you do."  Utterly simple words, but I think they really hit home.  I'll be alternating between sculpting and painting for these routines.  Heres the first.

I think it reached the 2 hour mark cuz I wasn't concentrating too much.  heheh doesn't help to have two monitors and having a movie play at the 2nd one.
