Mill artists across studios have the opportunity to hone their creative skills in the weekly Mill Art & Sculpting Lunch Crunch led by creature modeller Adam Dewhirst. We’ve put together a second roundup of some of the recent top submissions with themes ranging from The Living Dead to Two Headed.
Every week, artists have one hour to respond to a new weekly theme by creating a submission in their preferred discipline. Adam Dewhirst, creature modeller at The Mill in London, shares his picks for top submissions from recent lunch crunch challenges and why each piece stands out.
Theme: The Joker
Artist: Luke Tickner, 3D Artist
It was the colours that grabbed me the most from Luke's illustration, classic joker colours of purple and green, and very important for any image of the joker - lots of teeth! Bang on!
Theme: Two Headed
Artist: Philippe Moine, 3D Animator
This image belongs on the cover of an 80's rock album. It's awesome, plain and simple! Now we just need to form a Mill rock band based around this image.
Artist: Giacomo Cavalletti, 3D Artist
I love this image! It's a triple homage to three incredible things: superheroes, Pixar and of course our amazing producer, Reece [Ewing]! And it's about time Giacomo got a mention on our blog! Well done, Giacomo.
Theme: Fairytale Reimagined
Artist: Adam Dewhirst, Creature Modeller
I’ve added this illustration more to showcase some of ZBrush's capabilities with fur and rendering, as well as a sculpting tool. You can easily complete quite fully textured, groomed, lit and rendered designs and stay in the one package in a very short amount of time. Well done, ZBrush!
Artist: Finlay Crowther, Runner
This is a great little illustration from one of our runners here in London and it looks yummy! Fin has really captured those chocolate tones well, and for a half hour sculpt, I'd say he did really well to pull this off in the short amount of time!
Theme: The Living Dead
Artist: Arthur Larsen, 3D Artist
I just love this design. It's horrific and messy but also funny and has a great composition. I'm also loving Arthur's use of orange pencil and black brush pen. He has a very distinct style and it's perfect for something like this!
Artist: Eric Lane, Visual Artist/Designer
This guy is oozing character with great design and nice simple renders that really capture a sense of personality. I would love to see this guy as an entire build!
