Here is the mug shot for 6/20/11. Modeling time came in at around 5.5 hrs which is a little quicker than the last one. I had some difficulty with geometry flow around the mouth that slowed me down. Also I had meant to add hair to this one. As you can see it didn't happen today. Maybe I can add it later in the week. Also I will be gone on vacation for the next 2 weeks so there won't be any updates. I will still try and keep up with questions and comments though.

I'm pretty happy with how this one turned out. I'm getting faster so yay for progress. Mug shot 1 took about 2.5 days, #2 took around 1.5 days, and this one I did in just under a day (1 day = 8 work hrs). I also feel that the quality is improving. My hope is to start doing weekly full body models in the near future as well... but we shall see.

I watched most of this presentation by Nick Campbell the other day and found myself going back and jotting down some notes. I consider this a must-see for any designer. For the full post head on over to greyscalegorilla. I especially took note of "make something cool every day."

Here is part 3 of the Lightborne Creatives moleskine mural. The artist is Neil Smith, a Senior Designer at Lightborne. Below that is the comp of rounds 1-3 together. I forgot to mention to Neil to keep the left and right edges clean so of course he went above and beyond and filled the entire 2-page spread. I'm not complaining though. Props to Neil.

I recently found a collection of front & side mug shots tucked away on my hard drive and thought I'd try and do a model every week. This took me about 1 day. Yes, I realize it's not Monday yet. I meant to post this last Monday but it was a holiday and then things just got crazy at work. Oh and my tablet isn't working so I couldn't take it into Mudbox for sculpting... so it is symmetrical for now.
