This is some fanboy art of Giger's Alien, did it a while ago, initially sketched out in prismacolor pencil and photoshopped.

This was a demon sketch I did, which I then photoshopped, it was a quick paint for a design gig and I got it.

Yo bro, you're gonna kick yourself when you find out how easy it is

Alright, I'll assume you know how to import from a scanner and clean up, then assuming your scanned image is the background layer:

a. create a new layer with the artwork on it, via Layer -> New -> Background From Layer (this creates a new layer for which the blending modes are accessible)

b. in the blending mode drop down menu from the layers pallette, change the blending mode from "Normal" to "Multiply", this now creates a blending method whereby the value determines the opacity of the object. For instance white denotes zero opacity (meaning whatever is on the layer below is now visible), black = 100% opacity, meaning whatever is underneath that layer is not visible. This applied uniformly for whatever greyscale you have on the multiply layer.

c. create a new layer and drag it below the source image layer, and paint on it - easy.

Have fun.

3D traditional. In that, it's sculpture. The pink things in the first photo are my fingers.. sorry..

A

edit: oh, shoot.. medium: first: polymer clay
second: scan, taken into corel photopaint and, well, painted.. third image: also sculpted, taken into photopaint as well. Maybe five minutes each time spent coloring on each.
project: practice.
process: Not sure how to answer this one for sculpture, as it was just sculpted. I take clay and move it around until it looks like something.. I know, stupid, but I don't know how to state the process here.
time: Hmm. I lose track of it, but I think something like 5 to 8 hours total for the first one, and I think 2 or 3 for the Good Dog. He never got his bottom teeth before I crunched him.

Talking

AdrielaSakamoto,

WOW! It's so cool to see your hidden talents revealed! I love these sculptures because they are rather more artistic than your average creature design ~ they are in fact rather beautiful!

Thank you for posting these!

Jippey, a creature thread

augustus, the first concept is so cool! I like it alot. The second one is cool too, but I think you need to work on the feet, they dont look like they could handle the weight of the big dragon

magic man, Wow! Your Prismacolor-works are so awesome in detail and shading, especially the alien! The demon looks cool too, but it´s coloration is a bit weak comparsed to your other colorations.

Brutal Monk, looks very solid, but somehow its surface is very "clean" - to clean for zbrush, or did I misunderstood something?

AdrielaSakamoto, wow, the details are wonderful! Could you explain how you got it so clean?

two scribbled creatures from today

Laber,


Polymer clay is inherently a great medium for details. I use Premo now, but I think for those two I used Super Sculpey. It has proven to be too brittle after curing for my work, so I use leached Premo. Premo is a wonderfully medium soft clay, with great workability, but it tends to get too soft to hold the tiny detail. I leach it by rolling it thinly in a pasta machine, and then letting it sit overnight between several sheets of printer paper or other good cotton/absorbent paper. This leaches out some of the plasticizer so the clay is firmer and holds little detail very well, so that it's more like Super Sculpey in texture and feel, but still has a lot of tensile strength when cured. You can bend little fingers to a tiny degree and they will still flex without breaking if you don't take it too far. hope this helps.
