Weekly Book Wrap Up

The Wise Man's Fear (The Kingkiller Chronicle, #2)The Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

OK yes this is a very long book but besides the parts that happen in the fae world world, the book flows well, the characters are interesting and I want to know what happens next. Good world building, interesting creatures and good lore/mythology build up. Now the long wait for the next book

Finished Dragon

Finished texture on the dragon head. I didn't want it too rough, just a bit bumpy in places and rough the big scales/fins a bit so they are not so flat.

You see the texture better from this angle.

I like this angle because you can see how the scales/fins spread out. I could have made a body for this, but I need to move on to the next thing and also try to get that owl etching finished.

More Scales

Still adding more scales and fins to the dragon head. I plan on adding some texture to it and then it will probably be done since it was done just to remember how to use ZBrush and I don't want to spend too long on it.

Possibly a bit too many fins on the neck lol but I like how it looks from the sides.

Back to 3D

I'm trying to remember how to use ZBrush so decided just to create a simple dragon head and try to see if I could remember without having to go watch any tutorials lol

So far I haven't had to look up how to do anything, but I'm sure I will forget how to do something soon.
Still needs a lot of scales added, some detailing and texturing but should have it finished soon. Its green just because I probably don't have the time to paint it when finished and thought it needed some colour in the mean time.

Drunk Dragons

A simple sketch of some dragons having a bit too much fun. I plan on colouring this in Illustrator, mostly so I can make the vector image any size once finished. Will probably take longer than colouring it in Painter would, but it will have a more graphic style done in Illustrator.

Goofy Dog

Goofy dog trying to eat slippers lol there is cardboard everywhere because she rips it up. Better than her ripping up the furniture and it makes for cheap dog toys lol

Eagle Owl #14

Slow and steady wins the race as "they" say. I will eventually finish this lol I keep forgetting to darken the left ear tuft and fix the shadow on the right side of the beak. I can't wait to finish all these little feathers and then I can start adding the shading so he/she doesn't look so flat.

Eagle Owl #13

Starting to etch the body feathers and the feathers under the beak. I really want to finish this but I have new paper to try out so I have to force myself to finish this before I try it lol If I stop now, I might not come back to work on this until I am done uni.

I won the paper on a giveaway on Facebook, so I guess it does pay to enter contest there sometimes :)
