"Our Work With Monsters" has definitely been one of the most fun projects I've worked on, but I was never satisfied with some of the character studies. After a really helpful critique , I was inspired to go back and address some of the issues with the old designs. So with brand new expressions, revised poses and paintings, here is the most recent version of the main couple from "Monsters." Thanks for looking!

In the past semester, I've been working to learn as much as I can about digital painting. I've heard that film studies can be really useful when trying to learn the medium, and I have to say that they're definitely a lot of fun to try out. These two paintings, one from "Black Swan" and the other from "The Dark Knight" are around 2-3 hours each and focus on using the accurate color as well as how to create the forms quickly without getting too caught up in detail. It was a fun exercise and I hope to do more soon! Thanks for looking!!

After another long hiatus, I'm back today with a look at a project I worked on last semester called "Our Work With Monsters." This project was based on a really terrific short story in which a over-zealous government agent recruits two research scientists in pursuit of a giant monster. Using a tricked out RV and golf cart, the agent had some violent intentions. His mishaps include the radiation poisoning of cows along with the destruction of his own RV. The research scientists wish to study the monster rather than kill it, but the agent is all about the sport.
This was a really fun project in which I plan on revisiting soon. This semester I'll be tackling a whole bunch of new vis dev stuff, more updates are on their way! In the meantime, I've uploaded even more work on my other blog : brandonpikeportfolio.blogspot.com
