Here is some quick preliminary work I have been doing for a personal side project I'm working on. If it gets finished it should be a really cool fight sequence between the two. I know battle sequences aren't that exciting from a story stand point but they offer the most in terms of FX opportunities. Trying to focus on keeping the characters insanely simple so that character animation isn't as meticulous as I tried to be with the Titan. The Bg is more or less location exploration, trying to find a stylistic approach that can both fit my strengths and improve my weaknesses while at the same time looking as cool as I can make them.

A jpeg from a FX driven animation I'm working on inspired by my favourite FF7 summon.

Been a while

No one follows this thing any more as I post so infrequently but regardless I have been working in the build dept professionally for the last half year which leaves no interesting content to post about. I await my transition back into FX as thats what i dig doing. I was focusing on other thing during my spare hours but have recently been getting back into doing some side project stuff.

Pale Man

Ran out of steam on this one. The shading was going well in the face and hand but I lost my mojo when getting around the lower torso. Still, I am very pleased with it. Onto the next thing.

Here is the line work and very early beginnings for the next PS painting. If you recognize this guy, you have good taste in movies, if you don't you are probably very creeped out right now.
