This 3D Stuff is Hard

So I've been trying to self-teach myself ZBrush...man, it's tough. The interface actually isn't too bad, and I'm really thankful they have presets, but jeez. 3D modellers, I have newfound respect for you guys. I'm probably going to search for some guides online and give it another shot in a little bit.

As much as I would rather not learn the program and stick to what I know (Adobe Suite), concept artists have to be versatile nowadays. Not that all concept artists need to know those programs, but it definitely helps. So I figured I may as well give it a shot, just so I can at least learn the basics.

I never was good at my 3D classes, though. Ugh.

Pumpkin Dudes, Orcs, and more!

So next project for Electronic Illustration has officially commenced, and I am totally pumped. Not only is it going to be a super fun assignment, I get to digitally paint a lot of cool stuff for it. Like this guy!

No name for him yet, but he was the first guy I finished up. Also did an Orc, which was fun. I can't wait to see what else pops out of my head.

Another awesome thing is that I finally got my own domain! So now you can either access my site from the old URL of wix.com/dannyryba/dannyryba or you can just head to dannyryba.com!

Tomorrow is another day, and more art is to be done. But now, I retire to my bed to hopefully shake off the rest of this sickness. Ugh.

Projects, projects everywhere

Well I am officially done with 2 of my art projects, that's a relief. The third one if a pretty big painting I'll have to work on over the weekend, but my photography is done and so is my work for Electronic Illustration. Of course, they cost a pretty penny in printing costs, but that's what you get into with art.
Got another show on campus I'm gonna have at least one piece in, it's more of a casual event than anything else, which is actually kind of nice.
Other than that, it's all about the next round of projects now. Maybe I'll squeeze in another recreational painting in the meantime.

Yeah, right.
