World of Warcraft Fan Art - Grommash Hellscream

As you know I am a big fan of World of Warcraft, and I am really excited about the new expansion Warlords of Draenor.
So while waiting for the expasion, I decided to do a Fan Art and to improve the hand paint textures as well. 
As a starting point, I decided to model in high, just to test if it would be useful to paint the textures on it. Finally I used the high model just as a reference to make the lowpoly model and to start with the textures from the Ambient Oclusion references.
I have to thank my friend Rik for helping me with the rig and the animation that you will see soon. Nevertheless here you go an idle to start with. Hope you like it!

World of Warcraft Fan Art - Alleria Windrunner

Here you go another Fan Art of the World of Warcraft universe. This time I decided to make the oldest of the Windrunner sisters.
The lore of this character is quite interesting. I leave here a link of the WoWWiki for you to take a look. Did you know one of the statues on the entrance is her?

I leave as well a breakdown to show you roughly how I develop a hand paint textures work without actually making the model in high.
Hope you like it!

Works for Castlevania Lord of Shadows 2

Here you go a selection of some characters and statues I made for Castlevania Lord of Shadows 2.
The renders are made in Keyshot. The best solution I have found to imitate the marble is by using a Skin shader.

CGMA - Color&Light - with Tyson Murphy

A couple of months ago, I made the Color&Light Course with Tyson Murphy and Ryan Lang in the CGMA.
I am really happy with the results. Besides the fact that I improved greatly in color, light and materials, the experience with the teachers was great, they have made a huge effort teaching us everything.
These are some exercises I made during the course. 

1. This was an exercise based on values​​, not using more than five, and trying to recreate a mid range, a high key, full range, etc.

2. These are some examples about working with materials.

3. These are color studies based on environment photos.

4. These are color studies made by using some references.

5. This is a character study where the color and the backlight were the most important aspects.

6. This was at the beginning the final exercise, but I did not finish it, because I did not have enough time.
I will get done in the future.

Here a couple of paints I did it!


Some of speedpaintings i did these months for Daily Spitpaintings group in facebook. Each of them are made around 30 min. Really nice exercise to improve and learn.
