I’ve been talking about using your patronage to do 3D scans, to scan in models for use with my art and described the art as Baroque hentai mixed with pop culture, Monty Python and other strangeness as well. Fun words, I get that it doesn’t mean much though…
Which is why I’ve been putting together this “sketch”. I want you to see the process of creating this work: the failures and successes, the evolution of the concept, the influences and the things I steal directly from. I don’t want you to think of this as “concept art” as concept art needs to represent the final look and feel in some fashion. This sketch isn’t representative, it’s a fluid prototype – a tool for me to block in the composition, shapes and directions. It’s used for experimentation and play too. And over time as I home in the final piece, more permanent assets will be dropped in, placeholders replaced with final art and objects. Of course, the stand-ins will be replaced with the 3D scans and personalities of my models.
This first one, which I call “Daikichi” for now, has the primary figures in place. The flow seems to work so far. The lighting and environment are coming up next as I work on it. I’ve been out taking reference photos, scanning in elements. The renders below show some of the process.
Even now, as I look at it, I can see that it’s too complicated on the right and not complicated enough on the left. There’s still more blocking in to do.
Those Patreon contributors at the highest level will get an exclusive limited, signed and framed print of their choice of any of the completed pieces.
With your Patreon support I can continue to develop this piece and so many more (I’ll be sharing those sketches soon!). So whaddya say? Help a fellow perv nutcase create 3D art from photos and scans. Just click the button.
