Default Aarian's Showcase of Infinite Awesomeness

So, I finally decided to start one of these showcase threads just to separate myself a bit. I've been floating around the forums for over a year, but I usually don't have much to say, so most of you have no idea who the hell I am.

This is me. Mmmm, unexplained pie...
http://s87842498.onlinehome.us/aarian/unexplained-pie.jpg

I'd like to consider myself an artist-in-training. I'm just about to finish up my college education at the end of September, and while my original intention was to work in 3D right out of school, I'm realizing my most marketable skill right now lies in character and concept art. I'm certainly not lacking in the 3D modeling aspect, but my animation just sucks outright. Regardless, I started a little webpage just shortly over one year ago to force my procrastinating ass to draw everyday. That site is http://www.garydraws.com
Additionally, I proposed the so-far-uneventful Serious Sam: Third Encounter mod a while ago. (Over the next few months, you will definitely see progress)

Right now (and the intent of this thread) I'm just trying to display my wares and entice onlookers.


Here is just a brief sampling of some of my work, starting with the most recent:

http://s87842498.onlinehome.us/Gary/daily/images/10-19-05---tmech4.jpg

Hoping one day to contribute to some noticeable production, I'm always striving to get better and entertain the rabble with my very peculiar style.

I would like to draw you art.

Throw your ideas at me for pictures you might like to see.
Depending on how well this thread is taken to, I may not be able to fulfill all requests, but damnit I'll try. In general, anything that is requested will be fairly quick, but that's not to say it won't receive effort. Hell, that Cartman picture was only about 2 hours.


So, let me have it. Whether it be feedback, slander, or requests. I want to hear from you. (on top of that, I'll just update the thread if I produce anything worthwhile on my own freetime, rather than going back to the Post Your Crap thread)

Very nice stuff, Aarian!

By the way, I already asked in the Post your Crap, but I suppose this is the better place to ask: how about a drawing of Serious Sam kicking Duke Nukem's ass?

Your artwork is very good, but please don't try to use the forums for your own financial gain.

Sounds like a plan. I'll see what I can do about kicking it out this weekend.

Sort of a mix between a symbolic image and a logo.

I guess, to further specify, what would you expect me to produce as a result, a character in this pose or a reinterpretation of the basic image you have shown?
I'd like to see your interpretation (so a reinterpretation of the basic image).

Odd how neither picture of Arnold shows up.
I've just never heard him referred to as "Arnie." Either way, I have a few ideas. It'll probably just be a headshot.

Is it Maya or what? And how much time did it take to make?

Modeled in Maya, yeah.

While I modeled it for a class on and off for the duration of about 10 weeks, I plan to finish up the model and rig him up over break to put together a car commercial style animation advertising it as if a real product.

He's got a partially completed skeleton as well.

Sorry, a storm hit my apartment hard and, after a power outage, the internet was down all week.

Here's part of Disconnector's request. I liked the concept, so I think I will finish an entire scene in full color featuring a bunch of brawling FPS characters. Let me have some recommendations for characters.

Oh Doom Guy... how you've fallen...

that's great. I can't wait to see you finish that. As for characters, you could throw in Freeman or Malcolm from the UT series.

Definately should include Master Chief. Hmmm... who else? Well, here are a few others, just some I came up with real quick:

Main character from painkiller (can't remember his name)
Cate Archer from NOLF (for some female action )
Guy from Deus Ex (maybe?)
Far Cry dude
Will Rock
Sam Fischer (Splinter Cell)
Denton from SiN 1

Hope that helps, since you said a FPS brawl, I figured you'd want as many FPS characters as possible. Anyway, I'm excited to see how this turns out!

I notice that there are two people in the background fighting. You could have Gordon Freeman as the one that's beating the other guy and he could use his crowbar

The person on the left is Freeman as he shoves his crowbar into Master Chief's face.
I just started adding the guy from Thief sneaking up behind Doom Guy, and on Disconnector's suggestion at my site, throwing in the Quake 1 Ranger.

But, I'm gone for the weekend, so I'll update Monday or Tuesday with a couple characters from NoMercy Riders post.
