As I continue to focus on my new books about robots, there hasn't been much time to dedicate to much else. I did do a little concept image just to take a short break from the robots over the last month:
This month I have been working on a new image and testing out some new workflows. The image is called Riverside Tank Battle and was done using various software. Zbrush was used for the modelling, Substance painter for the materials and Octane to render the scene out.
Below you can see the completed image and under that there are single shots of the Sneaky Soldier and the Scorpion and Spider Mechs.
This month we have another flying robot, a new Hero on a bike and an updated Armoured chicken being prepped for 3d printing.
First up, this is a new knitter robot painting from the flying robot collection
Another new painting for the Heroes on Bikes collection. This one was done for a family member who is a fan of the collection.
Lastly, I've been redoing the details and splitting this old model into sections with keys. It is going to be printed in a high resolution resin and painted once complete. I'm looking forward to the end result and I will post some more pics of that once it's complete.
This month I have been revisiting some old models and reworking them in Substance Painter. All modeling done in Zbrush and materials in Substance Painter. Renders done in Iray.
First up is my engineering bot that has had a rework of the textures. I'm happy how it turned out and getting those dirty metallic surfaces looking just right is really great.
Next up is the space ship from the painting last month. I decided to add some more detail to it and refine the materials a bit more.
After a busy start to the year I have managed to find some time again to create some artwork to post.
Starting off with my most recent painting I finished called 'Clearing the gate'. It was inspired by a scene in one of my favourite scifi books, Broken Angels by Richard Morgan, that I reread recently.
Next is all the Panda Mechs together as one big team. It's nice to see them all together for comparison
The next three images are of old models that I have re-textured using Substance Painter. This is a great program and was really easy to get into to start producing great textures. I recommend taking a look if your want to take your textures to the next level.
This month we have a generous chicken and a panda, a solar farm in the clouds and a space captain with some great hair. Read more about each creation by clicking on the images below:
