Weekend Update

Hey there all!
Work goes good on the pyro, I will post an update shortly. This past week I started my concept design class. Since I haven't worked the traditional art in a while I thought it would be prudent to warm up and start practice drawing. The first two are pencil and today's was pen and marker, which I draw least with. I decided starting after my class on Thursday, I would render two spheres a day as well as start a painting. Here is my progress.

Welcome to Blogging Town!

Hey there, vast internets! It recently was brought to my attention that a great way to show off my work was via a blog! So I decided, sure it sounds like fun.
Recently, at the behest of my classmates I made the fine purchase of the game team fortress two. At first I was skeptical. I mean I have played online PC shooters before: Halo, Alien vs Predator 2, counter strike, Unreal Tournament, all of these games had a great run. However, all of them had one fundamental flaw. Cheaters and lag began to castrate the experience. Eventually I could barely play a game and get any kind of emotional fulfillment. However, TF2 changed all of that and reignited my love of the PC shooter. So when I found a cool stylized version of the pyro class on Creature Box's website, I saw a golden opportunity. This would be a great chance for me to hone my stylized character skills.
Initially I did a quick layout of proportion with the reference then continued to combine and refine. This has been modeled in 3d Studio Max(another exercise). Keep in mind this is a work in progress. But hey that is what blogs are for :P
