Hi hi, Long time and Ben's 21st painting

Ok so Ive been really bad at updating my blog, it is so shocking. It has been abandoned for months and months - so terrible. I also have no excuses. But I feel like I'm going to be going through a new stage in my life that involves a lot more effort in the area of promoting my artistic self which I haven't felt I have needed to do in those months. So here I am again: Round 2.

So I did this digital painting for my brother Ben. It was quite rushed because I've got a lot on my mind at the moment like my damn thesis which is taking forever and which I have to finish by the end of the month. This as well as the fact that I gotta start practicing for my music licentiate in September has made it really difficult to do anything else.

I didn't have a photo of ben's face from that angle so a lot of it is really interpretive and imaginary. It was a lot of fun trying to work it out though. Please click and see the picture in its full res.

I have also included a painting process vid made from screenshots and embedded it below.

Whitenecked Raven.

Just been working on a crow. Here is a quick render. Pretty cool hey!
Please click to take a closer look. :-)

Heres some reference. "Sasol Birds of Southern Africa." I know it's not really from the area of my film but the Whitenecked Raven looked the most badass so I took some artistic liberty.

Jan deBoer

This is a test render of the character in my current 3D Animation project. He is an old man that has lived on in the Karoo all his life. I have chosen to push certain features away from reality in order to ground the film as an animation and not live action. However, I am going to be rendering very realistically.

Jan Tewee

Click to Zoom

This is a photoshop sketch of a possible character for my final movie. The character is based on a real person named Jan Tewee who is over 72 years old and has lived in the Karoo all his life. I found a beautiful picture of him in a book called Karoo Moons: A Photographic Journey by Richard Mark Dobson.
