Cyberpunk Warrior 2 by AdamRoush
Cyberpunk Warrior 2
I wanted to explore another design in the same universe as my last cyborg warrior. But for this one, I dialed down the gaudiness, so it doesn't melt your eyes. The last one had a few too many bright colors, making it difficult to focus on one area, so I limited it this time around. I spent a lot more time focusing on texture, so there's a mix of plastics, carbon fiber, cloth, and shiny metal. And I think that made painting this more fun.

Cyborg Samurai
I love modern shoe design. I just think a lot of the designs they're selling are really weird, yet cool. Like they're combining a bunch of weird colors, textures, and patterns into footwear that works aesthetically. I don't know, I just like them.

I saw a challenge online to design a cyborg samurai, and while looking up reference, I came across cyberpunk fashion and thought it might be interesting to really push outside my comfort zone in terms of color design. This is where the weird shoes come in.

I wanted to combine the traditional Japanese robes with a youthful/ gaudy color scheme/ shoes. I went through a ton of different color directions, but went with this one because it still has a heroic character vibe.

I want to do more in this sort of style, because a part of me thinks this isn't gaudy enough. And because it was so much fun to do.

Here's a close-up:…

Scout Poses II by AdamRoush
Scout Poses II

Here's a few more poses of her. Again, these were really fun, trying out poses to define her swift and cocky/aggressive behavior and ways she might attack.

Something I wanted to do for my project was some animation poses, to further explore the characters' personalities and abilities. But I only did a few poses, and only for this character. 

Doing these was really fun, but I discovered that by having a complex design whose front and back views don't exactly match proved difficult to get right when drawing her clothes on these poses. And finding a few design elements that, while they look cool, don't really make sense in terms of movement.

Maybe I'll do more later on.

Sea Serpent Queen Concepts by AdamRoush
Sea Serpent Queen Concepts
These were a few other concept designs I did for that CHoW challenge on a few months ago. I chose #1 for the final, which I modeled after a jellyfish, but I also did some designs based on deep sea fish for #2 and... I think like seahorses/ general fishiness for #3, both with bony crowns. I think they could have all been fun to do final designs for, but I just really liked the proportions and design elements of #1.

Not really news, but check out our new game Darkfire Galaxies.
It's still in development, and we're making a ton of tweaks, but it's playable and pretty fun. If I do say so myself.

Otherwise, the car I bought a mere year and a half ago keeps falling apart. If I might recommend, never get a German/ British car. They pretty much just fall apart, especially when bought used with over 60k miles. I went with an 07 Mini Cooper S, which was a huge mistake. While fun, I could've gotten a significantly better car for the amount I've spent in repairs. Learning some lesson the really hard way.

Anyways, needed to get rid of that old journal.
