Hi all,
I wonder how you got here, but I'm glad you are.
Basically on this blog I will publish a bunch of pixels that generally speaking will form an image.

I am not an artist, not at all.

In my profession (which is more tech/geek/nerd oriented) I deal with a lot of art though, so I decided
to put here some stuff I do in the spare time trying to mimic the true artists I work with.

Magic coloring book, no wait..... I didn't mean...

Just a quick update I did today.
This is the first attempt on painting  the book of spells that each mage is supposed to have.
Nothing fancy...but still....
If any of you is interested on which book it is just follow the following link:
Standard Book of Spells by Miranda Goshawk

Judging the jinxed jeans - (repeat x8)

Quick update for my magical mystical magician jinxed jeans. I am really happy on how they turned out, I've used a picture as a reference but every single pixel has been hand painted :)
I also shifted hue of the warrior's shirt 'cause it was disappearing into the background. Contrast is the way!

Half horse half polygons

This one is another attempt to sculpt something anatomical interesting just for rigging purposes. The quadruped nature and the high amount of muscles in this centaur is a perfect starting point for muscle and skin sliding deformations.
One last thing: as usual this one is a work in progress ;)

Painting under the hood(ie)

First attempt to paint a hoodie in photoshop, I will totally go for a dark color since I'm supposed to be a mage in this picture.
I'm also thinking to paint the overall background darker as well....... what do you think compared to this one ?
