Angel.....

Howdy!

I know this is a little bit late. I don't really know what she is pointing at, or why she has a half-skull for a face, but here you go.

Christmas Throwdown


Look out, Santa! It's corporate greed!

Santa on Speed

I apologize for misreading the topic.


I spent maybe 3-5 minutes on this.

HAPPY THANKS GIVING ONE AND ALL!!!

*


I woke up Monday and thought I want to do a nice Thanksgiving card... for Thanksgiving. This was what popped into mind. I made myself laugh... but I scared myself a little too.

Now if I can just catch a showing of Charley Brown Thanksgiving I'll be set.

Happy Halloween!!!

*I've had a crush on Sally ever since I first saw her on the silver screen
back in '93. She hasn't aged a bit. Because she's some sort of undead Raggedy Anne reanimated construct with autumn leaves for blood. And those sorts of people don't age the way you and I do.

Well, hopefully I won't be run outta town for posting 3d stuffs.....





Edit: Here's a link to a video of the sculpting and creation process I did in ZBrush if you guys want to watch. It's just a bit over 11 minutes.

Bowie's in Space!

Obviously (or maybe not so obviously), this isn’t a troll, but rather my super late submission for the Spaceman topic. It’s been about 99% done for the last six months and was about 75% done for six months before that. I’ve got half-a-dozen or so more Ava-blog paintings started and in various stages of completion, so maybe I’ll get another one finished in a year or two.

Trolly theTroll and the trolldame


a classic fairy tale of evil and much worser evil...

Something.... else



I've been thinking about trolls these past few weeks. Here's one thing i came up with.

It's hard to get a date when you're a Troll

Friday drawing

This was done in the Friday figure drawing session maybe 3-4 weeks back. We were pretty surprised to see a real honest to goodness troll walk in. This was about an hour and 40 minutes done with my full range of pastels. Note, he does have a speedo on but it is hidden by his stomach.

In case you were curious, it was Brian Cutler who arraigned him into this distasteful pose, and you do NOT want to see the gesture poses.

The RoboTroll

RoboTroll Render Style Exploration

Are you tired of humans crossing your rightfully commandeered bridge and laughing at your humble toll requests as they tower over you and swat you aside? The Unicorps of Grengineers announces rental and plan licensing of their new and indestructible* RoboTrolls to help you turn the tables and squeeze ever higher toll-revenues from the travelers entering your domain.

Our deluxe model, the n8-a04 is packed with features to get you up and running in no time. With our flexible partial-construction operation, you can build in stages and still get the coin you deserve. Lure travelers in with the illusion of an uninhabited bridge, while your RoboTroll hangs out of sight with folding legs and Strongrip hands (and/or hooks)! But still get a full picture of the situation with your RoboTroll’s telescoping neck and ClearCam Eye. Surprise them before they can escape with your RoboTroll’s spring-step quick moves and clearly demand your due with the built in ReelToll Meter. Shakedown the cheapskates with a fully articulated hand that can grab travelers of any size. And best of all, control your RoboTroll from a safe distance with the reinforced data & control cable bundle. Contact us today for a free on-site consultation!

This is some render style exploration for my WIP short film, A Heavy Toll, for which you can see an animatic (no audio) here: http://www.nateallison.com/2010/06/new-leaf-new-project.html

Troll


Figured I'd finally contribute.

Trollin' the boards

 

We all know this guy. He's probably on a message board right now making wild accusations about the size and mental acuity of your mother.

TROOBS!!!

I still want to throw some color on one of these trolls but can't decide which one. Kind of leaning toward the top one but...?

Hugo

Do you remember Hugo? He was a puppet toy you could disguise with a variety of hair styles, noses, glasses, scars, moles, mustaches, and stuff. He also appeared in Pee Wee Herman's early stage shows and is the basis for the costume Mickey (the fugitive) wears in Pee Wee's big Adventure.
You'll probably want to click on this to see a bigger version.

Well-disguised

My first idea was something cooler, but the quick doodle of this guy made me laugh.

New Topic: MASTER OF DISGUISE

One quick note:  we've become very finished piece-focused on this blog, and I think that has sometimes  discouraged some people from participating.  So submit what you can, whether it's a doodle, sketch, drawing, whatever---everything is welcome!

Topic idea from Shane Lewis and Adam Koford.  Thanks guys!

Baroque Battle Bug

Thanks to Joe O. for the great topic idea.

Just a giant beetle


So this really isn't a bug war exactly. More of a battle. Or rather an attack..........of a bug.....................
......on a man.

New Topic: BUG WARFARE

We're overdue for a new topic!  Interpret the topic however you want.

That really was a Hanzo sword...

If Tarantino were ever to direct a Disney film, my head would explode. From sheer awesomeness.
