Undead Concept Art 1

Posted by Adam Weber on Tuesday, 24 November, 2009

Like the world we live in, the world of Hackberry Hollow is a very diverse place. In addition to the wide variety of cultures, belief systems and ethnicities, there are also varying levels of laziness. There’s the workaholics on one end of the spectrum, and at the other end there are people that just don’t want to do anything productive. Then there’s “so lazy you have to invent ways to show off your laziness.” For them, I present you the Undead Turkey Dinner.

Prop Concept Art 1

More non-spoiler info about votive figures, and photos of Adam’s sculpture after the jump.

Like all of the 3D models we’re using for the backgrounds, this was created in Blender. Read on for more details about the above image, as well as how I cut the render time from 30 hours to 19 minutes without changing any of the rendering settings.

Disclaimer: No Cintiqs were harmed during the creation of this image.

Welcome to Plan B Theater! The part of the show where Glen calls me up in the middle of the afternoon to inform me that he has nothing to post on the blog this week!

I would also like to share our official quote of the day:

“Vehicle design fills me with rage!” -Glen Moyes.

As punishment for this mishap I will write another vehicle design into the script.

So let’s talk about cabins. I like modeling cabins. Probably because I like camping. Not that camping resembles this resident’s lifestyle in any way.
