master magical manga effects the blue sorceress 2012

Photoshop Painter Artist Info Schin Loong Personal portfolio site www.schin-art.com I started drawing pretty girls after watching Sailor Moon as a child. Now I work as an illustrator in Las Vegas and try to draw more whenever I have the time. If I could have a magic power, I’d choose the power to implant the song The Final Countdown into my enemies’ heads. We all grew up with magic as children. Fairytales, nursery rhymes, cartoons and songs stir our imagination and every child has fantasised about having magical powers. But how do you portray such hidden powers in a painting?

create a furry creature concept the wanderer 2015

Photoshop ZBrush In this project we are going to explore the workflow and method used to create a Lost Creature. We will be making this creature to help us make a central character as part of an illustration. This is an imaginary Lost Creature wandering the wild. The idea was to capture a moment in the life of this furry character, showing his curious and friendly side. A challenging thing about designing a character is to make it appealing, memorable and believable. As we sculpt this creature, we’ll make aesthetic decisions to give personality to our character. Based on a rough 2D sketch and using ZSpheres, we’ll quickly build a versatile base model of the creature. This will enable us to refine the character’s silhouette and proportions using layers. We’ll focus on setting…
