In this study I experimented with the idea of underpainting. I rendered several layers at different undersampled resolutions and comped them based on different criteria, one of which was luminosity. In this way, the lower resolutions showed through in the darks, similar to the idea of underpainting.

Really working the colors this time on this very scowly model. I rendered out everything as separate layers and composited them with brush strokes.

Easily one of my favorites. I had the brilliant idea of working on the draperey when the model was taking a break. Duh. This freed me up do work on the figure all the way until the end, as opposed to rushing through it to have enough time to do the environment.

Jennifer, great as always. I like the other guys' paintings better, but after some twiddling, I ended up liking it.

Kind of experimenting here. Not too thrilled with it, but hey.

One hour study. Instead of the usual 3 hours, I wanted to see just how fast I could do one. I wasn't sure if I could have anything at all in one hour. I kept my brush strokes while modeling and painting big and loose. It was a blast. Modeled from zspheres and texture painted in ZBrush, lit and rendered in Maya Software Render.

1 hour.

David always kind of does the same thing and just sits around. But I liked what I did with the lighting and suggesting his hairyness.

One of my quickest ones yet. I got there late, and so only had an hour and a half. My wife and I were buying a painting by Sunny Apinchapong. Modeled from zballs, texture painted in zbrush, lit and rendered in Maya.

1 1/2 hours.
