Did some more work on my entry to the CG society contest for re imagining of a myth as something in Steampunk style.
It's too camouflaged to tell much about as this point but it's good enough to jump to digital for additional edits.
I'll make Siegfried smaller.
I revised the drawing. I still have more tweaks to do, but it will all be digital, photoshop forward
I have notes on it to look at "9". If you haven't seen it, it's a short by Shawn Acker, going to make a Tim Burton film. I'll embed it.
My title is a link to an MP3 of Joseph Campbell I wanted Krayonzilla to sample.
Now the title is a link to the CGSOCIETY contest I'm participating in.

Picked up Art Rage for 20 bucks in target the other day. They have a free version that i've enjoyed playing with in the past. For 20 bucks you can't go wrong with this really full featured paint program.
I used their trace feature to see the results tracing Tom's zeppelin. It's amazing when it's really small and thumbnail how much it looks like the source. Very random. It could have obviously been done with more attention. I like the tracing feature because it force "painterly". Makes you think about how much detail you could leave out
What you're seeing here is an updated "first pass" at the airship "Közelgõ Vihar" or Coming Storm" in Hungarian. The time frame is 1915. The world is locked in a global battle for power and territory and a visionary scientist must reclaim his journal of inventions, stolen years before, from a rival who is now using it to undermine the Allied nations.

Nice collection of monsters made by Japanese artist Hiroshi Yoshii, who crafts a new monster on an almost-daily basis. Excellent display of Modo skills. I'm currently learning and using Modo and it's a pretty darn cool tool. I especially like the 3D paint tools. If you have ever used Lightwave, the common opinion is that you will feel right at home with Modo.
Here's a link to Yoshii's blog. It's in Japanese, but there's some more good stuff there.

I LOVE not having to worry about the graphic novel anymore. No guilt during the whole holiday weekend as I finished off another Cork. I've already pencilled in Cork 11, all I have to do is ink it so hopefully you'll be seeing that soon as well. New characters afoot.
