Thanks for everything. Still kinda transitioning to tablet, hope the image makes it.
Everybody else's pic look great! Lots of fun, can wait to get in more time with tablet.
Lemme try this again, lol
Here's my final painting.
I tried to improve it using what everyone told me on "our work so far".
Hope that's better
Here is my final piece, I really wish I could have spent another week on this as time has been so short this week with the birth of my daughter. I have not even had a chance to re- watch the course video yet .. All in all I am really happy with my picture, I definitely think it is the best picture I have ever done.
The backstory for my character is as follows -
Everett another Paladin like Gabriel was sent on a Black - Ops mission during the opening days of the Mars War. Possessing all the abilities of a Super Soldier from physical strength to a brain that can process information faster than most computers he was betrayed by the very company that created him, Arms-Tech.
Everett, left for dead after being shot in the chest several times was found by researchers from Mag-Corp an upcoming and rival weapons company to Arms-Tech. Through the use of numerous chemicals and nano technology they where able to bring Everett back from the brink of death but it came at a price, Everett lost his soul and became more machine and now has to inject viles of Nano-bots in to his body on a daily basis.
Mag-Corp knowing they could not match Arms Tech in terms of might on the battlefield started the Cygnus Program to wage war on a digital level. Everett enraged by the betrayal of Arms tech agreed to to be hooked up to the Cygnus device in order to help Mag-Corp replace Arms-Tech as the industrial military complex in Murika by use his super soldier brain to hack military grade firewalls so that he can take down the company that created and just tossed him away like trash...
I managed to use a lot of techniques Dan showed us -
• Skin Rendering ( Both Characters )
• Saliva ( Everett's mouth )
• How to make things glow ( The Screen and Circuits on the Cygnus device )
• How light works and bounce light etc. ( Refelection on Female Cyborg )
* How to add texture to armour and then adding scratches ( The armour on Everetts leg and belt)
• How to add texture to clothes ( Everetts Belt )
• Using the lock pixel tool in creation of the cables
• How to make Eyes look realistic.
• How to apply Tattoos and make them look realistic
• The use of Brushes for different effects like smoke / atmosphere.
Thanks must go out to Dan Lu Visi for sharing his awesome skills. The Stan Winston School & Chris Vaughan for putting this all together, Die Antwoord, Karma to Burn, Crippled Black Phoenix & Samsara Blues Experiment for keeping my mind going with their crazy ass songs and Monster energy drink for keeping me awake, and all the other students who kept me inspired with all their awesome work!!
