Warlords of Draenor sketches




Did a couple of sketches over the weekend.  Using Black and White charcoals on toned paper.  Each took about 2 hours from start to finish.

Timelapse of the Sébastien Chabal sculpt.  In terms of efficiency, it's surprising how much you learn by watching yourself work!

LA Girl

Got inspired by some character art so ended up undertaking this painting.  Always find painting skin tones somewhat of a challenge.  The contre-jour style lighting also made the hair a difficult task!  Extremely fun though!

CG Society update!

 http://mattmcdaid.cgsociety.org/
I have added some of my 'Reaper of Souls' artwork to my CG Society portfolio.  I'm currently working on a tutorial that will offer an insight in to how these environments were constructed both from a texturing and geometry standpoint.  Watch this space!
