Finally tried Blender's Grease Pencil

This isn't a new feature in Blender.. its just something I ignored for a long time.. finally decided to give it a whirl today, and it does not disappoint! Originally meant as a quick way to make notes or annotate a 3d model this tool has gone on to more advanced and glorious things :)


The tools are much more refined since when I first tried the grease pencil years back.. now it even has animation capabilities.. with onion skinning!!
Aaand its pressure sensitive with my wacom!

Heres a quick gif of my first animated clip with blender grease pencil..

and heres a screengrab of the animation in blender.. with onionskins.. and wait for it.. thats right you can fly around it because all these lines are 3d objects!!

World of Warcraft: Legion Contest


Haven't taken part in a cg challenge in a while, so when this popped up I found my self saying..

Lets have a go at it

https://forum.sketchfab.com/t/lets-have-a-go-at-it/9554
(see the forum thread for the work in progress)


Its sort of a fanart contest based on the release of World of Warcraft “Legion”


Prizes include an Oculus Rift, The Art of Blizzard Entertainment books, WoW: Legion T-shirts, Sketchbooks, Amazon Gift cards and more. Enjoy! More details here
heres my work so far..

I started with the idea of doing a mini Wandering Isle 
(turtle with a forest/cabin on its shell).. 
sketches:



Got a lot of great inputs from @dark_minaz 
the turtle in my sketch was looking too cute.. less legion.. so after looking at several refrences of the game, happened on the idea of making it a dead/skeletal part of a lair.. ie: an environment that grew around the giant carcass of a turtle.. 

anyway looked at some refrences of turtle bones and skulls ..
and finally started modelling this snapping turtle skull.. will add horns etc and make it more legion




some layout progress... actually starting to feel satisfied with it a bit.. now to WoW it up.. with glowy cracks and green/blue goop and flames..
