A few months ago I got some free clay and I gave it a shot! I love working on my anatomy skills so I decided to sculpt a skull (and I didn’t really have a lot of clay anyway). I’ve never worked with sculptures before so I did some mistakes along the way.
It’s decided! I’ll be concentrating on 3D and storybook illustrations this semester.
The 3D seminar:
This seminar is focusing on the basics of working with 3D applications. This includes planning, modeling, texturing, lighting, animating and rendering the three-dimensional objects. This semester’s main topic is Sci-Fi… I couldn’t resist! So except for all the technical aspects we also read books (Stanislav Lem – “The Futurological Congress“, Asimov’s robot stories and Strugatzky’s “Roadside Picnic“) and analyze movies of the sci-fi genre. For now we haven’t created anything too exciting, but we only had a 4 or 5 meetings. I uploaded 2 picas I did as homework so far (I’m still very new to 3D modeling though so don’t expect too much):
The storybook illustration seminar:
In this seminar we are working on a real to-be-published adolescent’s horror-storybook. Logically we have to stick to the page format and other rules (all illustrations have to be in grayscale for example). At the end of the semester the publisher’s editors will pick the illustrations they see fit in their concept. I’ll be experimenting again 😀 And again I’ll give you a few examples of what I have painted so far:
Well that’s it for now. I’ll be uploading more later on 😉
