Fantasy Shield WIP Update by Valtyr
Fantasy Shield WIP Update
Think this is the final style direction for the color texture. Much more of a hand painted world of Warcraft or wildstar look.

I'll hopefully be finishing up the color map for the front tomorrow and the back soon after. Then I'll start on the specular map.

New Blog, "Valtyr | Tri it!" : valtyrtriit.blogspot.com/

I don't always post all my stuff to deviantArt so if your curious what you are missing out on you can head on over to my blog; Or wait until I remember to post it here.

Team Site, "Enilus" : enilus.com/

About me:
Artistically I have been a modeler for most of my life. Modeling was always fairly "easy" for me. However, there came a point when I felt that my lack of traditional artistic experience was holding me back from being as good as I can be. I feel building up that bassist intuition of what will make a piece look good is more important to being a good modeler than understanding how a normal map works or what good topology feels like. So I've started training myself in the mystical "fundamentals." As I slowly get better with one pillar I broaden my reach to another and another. One day I'll be solid enough to whip out stuff that gets an idea across likitysplit! But for now I draw, and try to keep drawing, and when I don't feel like drawing, I draw some more until my fingers have the imprint of my drawing utensil. Then I go have cheese cake.

Thank you very much!^.^
I don't mind looking at your work at all. I think your work is fun, lots of cute wolfies. I like that you mix up your designs here and there.
If you are trying to improve, You might give a look at a book called 'Animals Real and Imagined' by Terryl Whitlatch.
Also maybe take one of your designs and put it in a full body 3 quarters view with a clear light source effecting it?

You are most welcome. I find encouragement to be good artistic fuel. Keep at it! =)
I am not well versed in deviant art culture or services but I do not believe this is the kind of site where critical feedback is given as a norm. 'conceptart.org', 'gameartisans.org', 'polycount.com', 'cgsociety.org', and the like would be better for crits and advice from more skilled peers I should think.
