This is my first of two submission to the gallery of a piece of my own work (concept artwork not included), putting into practice the techniques learned from all the hours of watching Kent, Jonathan and other’s tutorials on CG cookie.
I decided a few months ago I would try and do my own model, the only question I had, was what should I do?
Well, before CGCookie 5 arrived I use to pop over to Concept Cookie from time to time and take a look at what they were doing and just happened to drop upon a piece ‘Foliage Robots’ by James McDonald. I thought this presented an ideal piece of concept art for me as no humans were involved; and there were plenty of mechanical parts which appealed to me as a mechanical engineer.
You’ll notice I have actually attempted two of James’s sketches and putting a bit of artistic licence in their conversion to 3D. Looking back on the saved files I started the modelling process in in September 2014 with the plants in the terrarium, so more than a year ago. I have deicided that after many hours of fiddling with textures, depth of field etcetera the time has come to submit them to the gallery and move on to something new.
