An update so soon? How could this be?! I'll tell you how: turrets.

Nov 2, 2011


Has it been another month already? Well I've been doing some work on the Contra game. Updated my concept of the first level along with the turrets. You can see how they transitioned into 3d below. I've also got the big level one boss concept ready to get modeled after I finish up the turrets. This project is more and more exciting as I go! Anyway, I hope to have much more to show in my next post as I definitely didn't cut it this month for work done.

Also a bonus speed-paint: took maybe an hour?

Hit and Run

Haven't updated in a while. Well here's some stuff I've been playing with. First is a little tiki hut for school. Secondly, CONTRA! Yay, finally! Grunts, Lance model, weapon ideas, and a stage one color test. Grunt models should be coming shortly (ie: next year).

Reflective Death Metal!

I found these surprisingly therapeutic to paint. So many abstract shapes...Also a movie still from one of my favorite movies, Amelie. I love it to pieces <3

Punch Punch

Bleh, I'm really bad about updates. I've also been pretty lazy about working on stuff. Anyway here are some more fighters and a landscape. I've been working on Contra baddies that once I get a little more polish and maybe some more finished I'll post up here.

F is for Fighters and Flamethrowers

Couple MMA fighter studies. I felt like there was much to learn from the action pose with two fighters, so expect to see more of those in the future. While not completely happy with how the second turned out, there are still parts that I'm very pleased with. I might revisit it further to bring it to a more polished state.

Also did a tiny bit of 3D (gasp!). Just a little power-up for now. You can see the original sprite from Contra on the left. There are some gun scribbles in my sketchbook that I'm eager to get started on next. Fun fun!

Long Face Study

Spent most of today working on this pretty face. Nothing feels better than producing something like this after struggling to produce something like this. Also, hair is the enemy. Down with hair.

This needs a new post.

Been working on learning darker skin complexion. Contra is a two player game so I was thinking of making Bill (Player 2) a black variant instead of the original who looks exactly like Lance with different colored pants. Hopefully I'll have some more finished looking stuff and everything soon!...really need to do some memory stuff too...

Studies + New Lance

Here are some more studies. Trying to get a grasp on color. Any color.


This is one of my projects I'd like to work on. It's a remake of Contra with a Megaman: Powered Up twist. I had done this model of the main character a while ago, but didn't take it much past an initial color block-in. The skintones were mostly monotone and boring so I came back to it and tried to spruce it up, make him look extra meaty. Old one here.
