The Ironic Cheetah

True story.. minus the fainting part.. – Alex

For the last couple weeks I have been playing Destiny with Cruz and a dear friend that moved away a few months earlier.  I feel torn about the game, it’s a blast with friends but it’s mind numbly boring when your alone. And it has one of the most disappointing final boss fights I’ve ever experienced. Not to mention that the ending was shallow, like bungie just gave up halfway though production and said ” lets just package it as-is.” It also suffers form Halo-itis. 343 Guilty Spark = Ghost. The Covenant = The Fallen. The Flood = The Hive, etc. The game play itself is like Borderlands and Halo had a baby, which IMO is completely fine. I love the art design and the open world environments. It’s just a shame that the game is so repetitive. I can’t stop play it though, which is oddly ironic.

Cruz 3d Model v2 WIP

I’m not a %100 happy with cruz at the moment. After posting this, I just noticed after rendering that the texture  is not showing on the tail for some reason. I am not happy with the feet, they are not ‘cat’ enough. I am happy with the face, as it is more expressive then the original model I made.

First comic with the new 3d models.  And I am a day late :(. I need to swallow my pride and just use the scheduler again.

Alex 3d Model WIP

The new 3d model of Alex . Still a WIP, but good enough to start doing tests and comics with. He is closer to the original design I did over a year ago http://maugryph.com/2013/02/18/dean-the-dragon-finished-3d-model-scene-lighting-and-animation-test/. I returned his skin color to a yellowish orange, and added the red fills that I was to lazy to do with the last model. I shortened his snout to make his expressions easier to read. I did a short talking animation test. I will upload that shortly.  Cruz is also ready, I will upload screenshots of the new model as well.

I haven’t used the animal versions in a while. We thought it would be fun to blow off the dust and a comic with them. -Alex the Dragon

Concept Art for the Alex and Cruz Superhero parody

1409969986.maugryph_alex-dean-shepperd---ref-sheet-for-ffcruz-body-concept-v4

Some concepts for Alex and Cruz. This project will began on Jan of 2015. It is a short comic spoof with Cruz as a superhero (one of his weaknesses is chocolate  FYI). These concepts are part of this story.

The parody comic will be uploaded on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The Sunday /Monday comic with the animals will continue to be uploaded on sun/mon (and will remain a bastion for our insanity) the parody comic will have no link to the Sunday comic. In fact I have redesigned the models for the Sunday comic but that will be for another post

Note both of these sketches are WIP.
