Here we go, first batch of quick doodles, just throwing random ideas.
A-E started as scanned sketches, F-I are Alchemy based.



As we are on CGFeedback, here is a a quick workflow video: http://thomasmansencal.com/Sharing/V...y_Research.swf

great sketches to start with! Is there anything you can't do?

I like the last one in particular. Best of luck

Magdalena: Ahaha thank you Made me blush

Earl: Cheers, following yours also!

Pascal: I hope I'll finish it, getting slowly hardcore at work

I have slightly updated B because it was awful: made him a plane fin, certainly because he runs so fast that he needs that to change direction
I'll add some more in a few.

Voilą!

2 Heads studies, I would like the beast to be able to open it's mouth along possibly multiple slits like on J, with a static state being something like K for instance. I don't know what's L but I found the shapes pulled by Alchemy fun



Hitting the sack for today!

Not much tonight unfortunately, here is M, slightly off topic maybe but I found some shapes interesting so I kept going, the Red Levitating Circles ( RLC ® ) are just laziness signs

I'm also linking the Alchemy forms.
