Concepting Star Kissed Dragon sculpt - zBrush sculpt timelapse

General / 26 November 2020

Hello guys!

I'm sharing a zbrush timelapse I did of this piece.

This is one of the dragons I want to make for a long term personal project called Starry Sky of Dragons.

Starry Sky of Dragons is a big personal project of mine where I want to illustrate different scenes of dragons interacting with stars or wandering in the sky with a short story in the background (I want to practice my storytelling and illustration skills). The long term goal is to later make a compilation of these illustrations and publish them as an artbook.

Sculptober 2020 - Nature

General / 21 October 2020

I've been a bit slow with sculpting this month, between work, a couple birthday presents I want to make and other challenges, but Sculptober really has me inspired into creating overall...

Since starting this challenge, I've been quite creative that it's even affecting my sleep hours as of now.

Anyway, here's a small turntable of another prompt: Nature. I sculpted Makar the korok, a creature from The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. Took me around 2hrs.

This sculpt was based on an illustration I found on Pinterest by Veep illustration.

Sculptober Day 9 - wing

General / 10 October 2020

Started the challenge this weekend between free time of my other projects. I will try to make super short sculpts with the prompts.

For the Wing prompt I went with a fanart of my favorite bird pokemon: Torchic!

Devlog - Some UI Design for Cool Earth | Timelapse of workflow

General / 11 September 2020

Hello guys!

I just want to share the news that the first public playable version of Cool Earth went live this week!

This is an indie educational mobile game I've been working on for quite a while. It's still under development. I've been tasked with the UI design and character creation. But not long ago I've started to document my art workflow for both personal record and for sharing it in the community, so I've made a timelapse of what I was working the week before this launch:

We are a small team working on making fun educational games. This one's about global warming awareness put together in a little single-player mobile game where you'll play classic minigames and help reduce the CO2 emissions on Earth. Available only for Android.

Feel free to check it out (: And if you do, let me know what you think/any feedback.

Stylized portrait of my cat

General / 03 September 2020

Hello everyone! Just wanted to share a little quick portrait of my cat, sculpted in zBrush, for a 1-2hrs practice.

I'm starting to record time-lapses of my practices lately, so here's how the practice went by.

As for the Dragon illustration I'm working on, I've slowly made some progress on it this week. Will continue working on it on the weekend since I've got another work on an indie mobile game I'm working on that will be ready for this weekend too (: Will show you some of my work on that game too soon.

Starting a blog - Personal artworks and WIPs

General / 20 August 2020

Hello everyone!

Now that I have ArtStation Pro I will be using the blog feature to post updates on personal projects that not necessarily fit as final pieces for my portfolio and their work-in-progress.

Also, I can share sneak peaks of my sketchbook. Even though I work mostly on 3D, having a sketchbook has always being important to me, so I will be able to share part of it here too.


zBrush Speedsculpt | 2 hour-ish practice

I'll start with this small head concept for a stylized creature I practiced this month. Wanted to practice doing some rendering and compositing using Marmoset Toolbag and Photoshop.

I'm also starting to share my process and workflow over on YouTube, so feel free to check them out. For this one, I made a zbrush time-lapse video:

Feedback is welcome!

Another thing is that during this practice I was thinking about the cute dragons from TheFireSeal on IG, I'm loving his creature designs (:
