“Saynt George & The Dragon”

December 17th, 2011 No comments

On an unrelated note… I just received a wonderful limited print of a piece by John Howe (signed by the artist). It is truly a remarkable work of art. The detail in there is fascinating and the energy of the composition is palpable. I really like his take on the dragon as a wormy, serpentine figure, far from the glamorous winged creatures we’re so accustomed to in fantasy art.

Frog moves to Sandbox 3

December 17th, 2011 No comments

So I’m slowly getting back in business nowadays. And I was curious to see what the lowrez frog model would look like under the sun of the CryEngine 3, so I quickly threw it through MayaCE3. After tweaking a bit the skin shader within the editor it came across fairly close from the Mudbox look.

Except in Mudbox I really went overboard with reflections and cubemaps, whereas in CE3 I went more for a more muted wet/glistening look…
