Marielle - summer

Personal work.

Another picture of one of my favourite people - my friend Marielle.
I tried to make it more stylised and illustrative than the last one I did, and make it a full body one with a narrative as well. We both like similar music, and the last time I saw her was at a music festival, so I figured I'd do a nice summery one with a festival setting.

You can check out Marielle's painting work here:

Here are some photo references i used for her outfit, pose, setting and face.
 


















Here is the previous portrait I did of Marielle back in 2013:

Angular Annie

Personal work.

I have always been fascinated with tangents, angles and alignment in illustrations of the human form, and I wanted to try and create a pinup full of these things, inviting the eye to explore it.
It was a challenge, as I forcibly restricted myself to just 4 angles, and tried to make as many things as possible echo and align with other shapes across the figure.
I chose a photo of the model Marie Devilreux as a starting inspiration, and ended up with a homage to the Bettie Page style retro pinup look. I did it entirely in 3Ds Max with flat, layered polygon shapes.
Special thanks to Maria Picassó - Illustration for her inspiring great work and advice!

Paid work.

Characters I made in 2013 for a new mobile game called 'Hero Hustle'. These were a lot of fun to do!

Kitty Kay - Got milk?

I did another latex pinup of one of my favourite models - Kay Morgan.
It was relatively quick to do since i already had a rigged model of her in a more basic version of this environment from the last pic I did of her in 2013.

Katie

Katie

Quick tribute to the brilliant Kyu-bum Lee Art and Animation's original character for his birthday.


I enjoyed doing this. She has some interesting shapes and a nice silhouette - especially on her hair. Kyu has a great eye for distinctive character design and is one of my favourite artists.

Serge

Personal work.

Its Serge Birault / PapaNinja's birthday today! He's been a friend and inspiration to me for many years, so I did this quick (2 days) tribute to the guinness-drinking, Shane Glines tattooed, tentacle-loving pinup master!
