Skaven Vector Work Progress

Still Quite a way to go but pleased with how its going so far. Not sure I will cell shade for all (example tail). As this will all be a problem when it comes to rigging and smart bones. I do like the look though.
Hopefully more progress will be made before next weekend when I will be embarking on some new (as yet undefined) projects.

Let me know what you think so far.


Poser Pro offer

Tempting Poser Pro offer

Poser Pro

I've used poser in the past and really liked it. Was really quick to render decent looking 3D scenes and animation. There's also loads of good Poser art on Deviant Art.

I've also used Daz studio very breifly which is now free (freemium) but wondering what the benefits of the poser premium are.... Let me know if you have any input.

Skaven Lore Inspiration


Whilst I've been working on the Vectors  from my sketches I've been listening to these Lore videos from grey hunter. I've posted the Skaven specific one below but he's going to cover all the armies in anticipation for the much awaited Total War : Warhammer Fantasy game. Hopefully we can trust Creative Assembly to do it justice (or heavily patch it after release??).

Also I have been distracted from the animation (ooppps) by Neverwinter Nights 2 which I never played, enjoying so far though. Hopefully it wont interfere with my productivity.

Any way here is Grey Hunters Lore Video:

Initial Skaven model concept

Skaven clan rat sketch for vector model
I'm never any good at doing feet, any tips let me know.


Really considering a Skaven style warrior for my next little project. It's another tangent from the story I've written but I really want to give it a go. I initially started doing concept art for Gazelle like people which will be a minor race in my own animations and it rekindled the Skaven spark.

Thinking something a long the lines of a Clan rat or maybe Gutter Runner for starters. Not going to go for Grey Sear though maybe in the future. Warp thrower might be cool to make and a good particles test?

Any way just a thought will post some concept stuff up soon.
