Rabbitfangs 3D printing commission WIP by BJPentecost
Rabbitfangs 3D printing commission WIP
This is a 3D printing commission Work In Progress for rabbitfangs over on FA.

On the left, some renders, on the right, the actual print.

I had to break her off the base and straighten her out because she wilted a little bit, either in shipping or during printing due to insufficient structural support. Now, however, she stands perfectly straight and her structural integrity is sound. I still need to paint her outfit, all her little fursies, and everything else.

I sculpted this in Zbrush and printed it using Shapeways: www.shapeways.com/shops/bobbie…

Material is called "Frosted Detail Plastic." Cost: Bloody expensive. This is based on another sculpture that I did which can be seen here: bjpentecost.deviantart.com/art… (The Dude Is In)

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. :)

Unguarded Moment by BJPentecost
Unguarded Moment
This was just supposed to be a doodle but well, I kinda oops a painting! Sketching just is not in my nature. XD

This is Velgrace Valedorna (vel GRACE val eh DOR nuh), same "guy" as seen here: Velgrace Valedorna Graphic Novel Style. The little one is Dysello, AKA Nugget. Vel knows you're not supposed to sleep with an infant like that but he's deathly afraid of SIDS. He wakes up spontaneously every few hours just to make sure Nugget is still breathing. Nugget is a little under one year old in this painting. I have a whole story on this "guy" and his/her exploits but I doubt I'll ever publish it. It's something I'm doing mainly for me. But ya never know. If I find out there is a particular market interested in gender-bendt pretty boy drama-saga, maybe I will publish.

Photoshop and Zbrush, 20hrs.

Quite frankly, I am ecstatic that I was able to finish this. My eyesight has been really bad lately. XC There were times when I could not even see any detail and I had to guess at what I was painting. But I made it. :) Might still nitpick a few things but you know me. I am the pickiest nitpicker who ever picked nits. =P

Also, this image shhhoouullldddd theoretically appear lighter than usual has I cranked down the brightness on my monitor.

Flight to the Whitewood by BJPentecost
Flight to the Whitewood
100% Photoshop, 25hrs.

I'm not usually in the habit of posting paintings before they are fully cooked but my vision has gotten worse and I don't know how much more I will be able to work on this anyway. I might try to work on it a little more when I get back from Texas. We'll see.

Edit: And for anyone wondering, no, the foliage is not photomanip, it's all hail our Lord and Master Mixer brush which is !@#$%^&*ING AWESOME for creating foliage. XD Maybe I'll do a tutorial on it one of these days..... if I can find the time. XC Now alas! Off to Texas.

Everything you need to know about me can be found here: fav.me/d4b6hqb

COMMISSIONS: I am currently closed. I will make an announcement when I reopen.

Please check out my Shapeways shop: www.shapeways.com/shops/bobbie… All proceeds go towards student loans, supporting my elderly parents, and paying medical debt.
Interests
Texas: Just an FYI for anyone who might want to get a hold of me over the next week: I will be in Texas and I will likely be without internet. T___T I'll answer any notes/comments/shouts etc when I get back, probably around Sept 5th.

Eyes: My eyes were hot, pained, and dry as hell, for a few days but I seem to have recovered mostly. My eyesight is a little worse now than it was a few weeks ago, it seems, but stable, for now. I just hope it doesn't get worse because I've looked into Bascom Palmer and I've heard some not-so-great things about them, the not-so-greatest being five hour waits, sudden cancellations, and expense. XC I don't even know if they would take my insurance and even if they did, I'd still be a few thousand out of pocket because my insurance is kinda ballsack. At least for now, my eyes are stable and I can see well enough to paint if I'm sitting a foot away from my 27 inch monitor. -___- Science, can haz cure nao?

I notice a bunch of your work says you use zbrush. I assume this is for concepting purposes.
could you post those concepts if only to scraps? Would be intrigued to see where they leave off, and the painting begins.

Hi there. :)

I use Zbrush both for concepting and for major illustrative work. Sometimes I don't use it at all. Here is a rough break down of that: About my work Q and A

If you read the descriptions under my art, sometimes I link to the raw Zbrush/Cycles renders. Here are a few:

1.) Fawny Neeper

2.) Lap of Luxury

3.) Foxcelot

I hope that satisfies your curiosity. :D

Oh, glad to find a another blenderhead/painter. Have you seen michalis's work on the Blender forums? or do you just use cycles to render.
thanks for the links.

I was a Blenderhead for a while but with Zbrush's new hard-surface tools and Keyshot integration, I imagine I'll be moving away from Blender when that comes out. There is still a soft spot in my heart for it though. I used Blender for a good few years and I think it is very good software, especially for being free.I primarily used  Blender for rendering in Cycles and for hard-surface stuff. I'm not familiar with Michalis.  Care to link me?

Well, your work is awesome, I don't know why I didn't watch your DA profile earlier, but now I do, so that's done. Your stuff is so good, it kind of makes me want to mess around in Zbrush despite my general dislike for 3D moddeling.

Thanks. :) I'm curious though, what don't you like about 3D modeling? I checked out your gallery btw. Very nice work! :D Interesting. I like your style.

I just don't like to 3D model myself, I don't find it very enjoyable and would rather draw. I don't have anything against 3D modelling as a whole.

A friend of mine showed me your work. And it's amazing. All of it.

While you probably get told that all the time, it doesn't make it any less true.

So thank you for inspiring me. I -think- I've found out what I'm doing wrong with my own methods.

I'd been having trouble lately with my own art, though I've only been working on things digitally for just about three months now.

And I've found it's because of an excessive focus on lineart, which I tend to erase and redraw for hours if I don't catch myself doing it.

Coming from more traditional media, I tended to work better when it came to painting, so practicing that digitally has been a good start.



And seeing how amazing your own art is and what you do with it (support your parents) makes me want to continue with my own, where it's easy for me to demotivate myself if I feel it's just a hobby.
