This week’s Hypertransitory Monday Comics features the stunning conclusion of the sci-fi comic The Commander Series!
Once again, it’s Hypertransitory Monday Comics time. This week we’re starting a new series with my 3D comic The Commander Series!
Hypertransitory Monday Comics continues! This week it’s part 3 of our inaugural Kid Hype story arc.
Who is Abigail, and what does Hurricane Stormfront want with the kid?
here’s a piece from my Unfinished Business post a few weeks back that I finally finished. Can you believe it? Me, neither.
I decided to list a few of my unfinished artworks here and go over the reasons why I left these ones to rot in the graveyard of uncompleted work.
I decided to try my hand at creating the Marvel Comic character Daken: Dark Wolverine in Daz Studio 3D.
This is a 3D model I created a few years back in Blender, but I could never get it looking the way I wanted.
Just to explain a bit: A sword-breaker is a weapon used apparently to catch a sword in the grooves of the blade, then twist and either break the blade or separate it from it’s pommel, leaving your enemy weaponless.
I saw a really cool piece of Superman art over on DeviantArt, and I thought I’d give it a shot in Blender.
I got back into some more Blendering since my last outing with my Nova Helmet debacle. So this time I truly graduated up to the latest Blender 2.5 beta, which at this point is 2.56.0.
Here’s part 2 of my 3D character walkthrough using Daz Studio 3. Parts 3 and 4 are up on my YouTube Channel as well. In this one I go through changing the materials and colors on your props and models. I had to move kind of quick to get in under YouTube’s 15 min time […]
This is the first part of a walkthrough showing how I design a character for True Tales of the Soryan Order in Daz Studio 3, then complete the job in Photoshop. I show the props/clothes/model I use, plus a little on installing on the Mac. Part 2 will be on posing and setting the materials, […]
This is a shot of Marie from my upcoming comic The Bill Collectors: Someone Must Pay. It’s an espionage/action tale I’ve written about before on this site. I’m still working on the sequential art, so this is another promo piece. I render the characters in Daz Studio, then use Photoshop to add the look and […]
I’m working on a weapon for one of my characters from my online novel True Tales of the Soryan Order, and I started it as a vector from Adobe Illustrator. I thought I’d write this up because it took me a while to figure out a reliable method.
Normally I have some kind of story behind the work I do, but this one just started with me playing around with the Greeble City Blocks available for sale on the Daz site.
Real quick one here tonight on a persistent UV Unwrap mistake I still see people asking about. Sometimes in Blender when you’re ready to do a UV Unwrap on an object, the preview in the UV/Image Editor doesn’t look right.
I’ve been working on another sword for one of my fantasy characters. It’s not finished yet because I ran into some issues of my own making. You’ve really got to be careful when you start out these models. Normally, when I’m drawing something I don’t plan out too much in advance. I know what it should […]
This isn’t necessarily specific to Blender, but I mention it because it’s the program I’m using to create my models. In a previous article, I wrote about trying to have my sword model 3D printed at Shapeways.com. Long story short they would not do so because the model in question was a weapon and it […]
I didn’t even know this book existed until I saw it in one of the weekly emails Daz sends out. Apparently this official guide was written last March (2009) and it covers DazStudio 2.3. Even back then I was probably a little beyond the basics of the book. I spent many frustrating hours in the […]
This piece is a shot of the main character in The Bill Collectors, named Jackknife Jenkins. The woman with him is Marie, another Bill Collector who is usually around when Jackknife needs someone to get his back.
I was checking the news on Blendernation a couple of weeks ago and I found a little blurb on getting your models “3D Printed” at a site called Shapeways. They are a company based in the Netherlands that can create your model in many different materials, some even with color. From the site: “We want […]
