Stay Puft Wallpaper - Completed
November 30, 2009

Sometimes you just reach a point where you say, "It's not getting any better." I've reached that point. Not in a good way though. I keep trying to tweak things without really improving them.

Time to just call it done and move on to the next project.
 Stay Puft Wallpaper - Chestcap Removal
October 22, 2009

These guys look a lot better without the chest caps. The proton packs and belt equipment had to be moved around a bit to maintain all the proportions, but I think it looks good.
I have discovered what I think will be the hardest part of this image for me. Stay Puft's face is really giving me troubles right now. I really want that angry "You shot me!?!" expression, but all my attempts end with poor results. What you see above is the best I've come up with so far.

I think I'll let that part sit for a whlie and work on the background and hairpieces for the guys. I'll probably finish out the proton packs first. That's a solid goal I know I can accomplish.
 Stay Puft Wallpaper - Color
October 15, 2009

Oooh, progress. I've made the lines smoother and more consistant. Obviously there's color as well. These probably won't end up being the final colors but they're close.
I made the heads turquoise to force me to decide on giving them hair or leaving them as blanks. I'm leaning toward 'hair' even though they'll hardly look like Minimates at that point. The chest caps really detract from the Minimate-ness, I think I'll try an alternate version with standard chest-blocks. That should help.

I'm looking forward to the shading and proton streams. I'm dreading the inevitable facework.
 Stay Puft Wallpaper - Sketch
October 8, 2009

I think I've decided on an alternating big post-little post type format. Today is the little post with a preliminary wallpaper design featuring the new Ghostbusters Minimates.
I threw it together pretty quickly to just get a feel for how the Minimates should be layed out. It's a good first start, but needs a lot of work. I'll move the ledge closer to the Ghostbusters and probably swap the two leftmost. I'll probably crop it a bit tighter too.

Anyway, I'll probably be showing these in-progress shots as the 'little-posts' for a couple weeks. As long as I don't find some extra time and complete it all this weekend.

Unfortunately Stay Puft doesn't look angry, just old and tired.
