Well despite it being late at night or very early in the morning, I decided to get back on track with my blogs. Recently, I have had nothing really to do and have resulted in playing lots of video games and watching films. Along with going out as well. I know most of you will be thinking that there can be stuff that I could be getting on with other than trying to entertain myself during the day. After overcoming the joy of unlocking all the special weapons on Resi 5 over a fortnight ago...I decided to finally get on with some work. Last week I finalized my plans for the summer project and now have a idea of what to do.
I want to try and make this feel like a proper project and therefore once I start in a few weeks, I will start with sketches to generate ideas followed by a full working of a final concept and final 3D model of what was expected. For the project, I feel like I would probably get more from the Steam Punk idea than the others and have decided to go with that. All year, I have been waiting to do a dystopian/post apocalyptic character that is based around scavenging and surviving in harsh climates. Something similar to Mad Max and Waterworld but obviously not the same. I think the Steam Punk option should provide me with the ability to do that.
But anyway, for now I have started a project working on a Deadpool character based on the actual comics rather than the film version. I started with the head but have run into a few problems of which I need to sort out since the look I want is one where Deadpool retains the original comic feel but seems believable. I also tried my hand out at Zbrush and am pleased with the result despite the poly count. I will upload these once I have my computer running again as it seems to dislike Zbrush and crash. I will try and keep this posted and hope for some positive feedback.
