Looking back over the last handful of days things have become decidedly illustrative (2D) - so thought I would check back on CG Sphere to see how things were going. I think the site is such a clever idea and a great way to bring a range of applications and styles together in a format that is approachable and challenging - while being flat out fun to browse through.
I last looked in detail at the site back in August 2007 - check for some of my favourite images - here are a few more that light my imagination:
[some new cool additions to the CGSphere site]
My idea: Rodeo Ball
The sphere will be a huge ball of rope pretty tightly wound in a chaotic way. Sticking out the top will be 4 rather comical calf legs and holding the rope in the side foreground will be the cowgirl/boy modelled in a semi cartoony way.
The idea is strongly tied to the sphere, fun and a challenge = perfect.
I have started sketching out some ideas for the cowgirl character. I clearly have too many things on the boil, but thats part of the fun.
