'Gaur 3.0' A New Character Concept.

I just realized that I hadn’t posted anything new in over nine months. Time just flies by when one is busy. And I’ve been really busy.

Anyrate, this is the third iteration of my “Gaur” character concept. In this version, I’ve decided to give up on the “cyber” aspects of this human/alien hybrid character. Gaur was sculpted in ZBrush, then textured using Quixel. Rendering was done using Marmoset Toolbag, with some post production completed in Photoshop.

This is the first phase of Gaur’s development. Next, I am going to design up his armor.

Let me know what you think.

Hello. I am a graphic artist, art director and illustrator and have been one for over 15 years, and available for freelance work. Visit my website for more information.

I do all types of art ranging from cartooning to 3d modeling and illustration as well as advertising design and branding. I'm trying to move more and more into illustration. The work I am posting here will feature my latest works.

If you would like to see more of my work, I invite you to visit my newly revamped website (link below). In my new portfolio site I have included more illustration work as well as some graphic design and logo designs.

I also run a webcomic named Hospitality Included, and recently decided to post updates here -- in an attempt to build readership. Hospitality Included is about the misadventures of the employees of a fictional suburban nightclub called the Funbar. The entire archive can be viewed at

You are welcome.  As for the quote, It's from the movie "Galaxy Quest." Not a huge fan of the movie, but I did like that quote. Good words to live by.
