Sorry for the dumb headline, but it will make sense in a sec.  

I had a great freelancing year in 2013 I'll be uploading lots of content from it, but the best part was towards the end of the year when I started sculpting minis for the Mega Man board game.  I've already made Roll, Rush, Doc Light, Met Minion, Yellow Devil, and I'm in the process of completing Mega Man to Capcom's liking.

Below is a preview of my in-progress version of the blue bomber (no pose yet), we're at the 350 k stretchgoal aready and unlocked the golden version.  With your backing and help this game and its minis will surely rock, back it if you can!




Help us reach more stretchgoals!

So I've been freelancing for a bit more than a year now after leaving full employment at a games studio.  I've had some fun with minis projects, video games, and other types of projects, but I also wanted to have time for my own projects.  I'm working away on a small game with a friend of mine and I also have lots of other projects half started or half finished.  I'll be uploading art related to those projects an posting more info soon.  Stay tuned. :)

Just noticed I got a Daily Deviation for:

Kat Beauty Shot by HecM

Thanx a whole bunch to keyan3d for suggesting it and to PolyMune for featuring it.  I really appreciate it. :)

Hope everyone had and awesome Christmas and are heading into a great start of the new year.  It's been a great year for me in the world of freelance art with amazing projects from League of Legends to Kingdom Death and Relic Knights so I'm very thankful for this year and what it brought.

League of Legends I made the Fiora Headmistress skin and Slay Belle Katarina, more to come also.

Kingdom Death   I've been working with Adam and his project Kingdom Death for some years now.  It's great to see his kickstarter kicking butt.  Have a look and support it if you get a chance.  I'll be posting more KD stuff soon also.

Relic Knights  I started working with Soda Pop and I'll be posting my pieces for them soon.  Their kickstarter is done, but you can still check out their stuff on their main site and shop.


I'm also working on a new portfolio site and more gallery updates so stay tuned and thanks for stopping by.

More than a year since I last did a journal I think.  I'm just writing something temp now to replace the old one, but I'll be doing a massive 'folio update, uploading lots of recent work and reorganizing my galleries.  'Bout time I guess.

Hadn't posted art or a journal here in ages.  I just got back from a great holiday where after almost five awesome years I finally proposed to my girlfriend:

:iconkara-kedi:

So a huge hip hip horray for us! I'm really looking forward to the times ahead.

So while we were out there having fun away from computers (we really needed the break)here in the internets was some trouble regarding the Abby character from Ctrl+Alt+Del www.cad-comic.com/ and my Akasia-PinUp Girl image.  Turns out Tim Buckley admitted to using my image as ref when designing the character for his strip.  He wrote me about it explaining and apologizing, I also received mails and messages by many people concerned for which I'm very very grateful because in case of serious art-theft it's great to know you guys have my back and that of other hard-working artists.  Here's what I wrote to Tim:

Hi Tim,

I just got back from a great holiday in Mexico and was away from email and computers, on purpose actually, for two weeks.  I came back to several mails and messages in my deviantart account regarding this issue.  Seems you've caught some heat for this also on your forums for this.  In case the issue persists I'm providing you a statement from my part.

I will not be pursuing this issue for several reasons.  Although in direct comparison the similarities can seem obvious I myself can't claim much originality regarding the character on the pinup because it's based on the likeness and styling of my model and friend Akasia, I merely depicted her with some additional details and accessories (made up the design on her top and added more belts, wristbands and logo buttons).  I also understand the use of reference for character design and it is something I do often in my own job and it can be a fine line to walk on at times.  When working for clients they often request something along the lines of something else and yet unique, which often leaves little room for too much innovation as it can even alienate audiences with something they've never seen or can't relate to.  Even if there was a case of infringement here I don't really need the money or have the time to make a bigger deal of this.

I commend all the people that found this to be a potential issue and went through the trouble of informing me and defending my work, it speaks greatly of them and I hope they continue acting on what they find fair cause, specially when and where it matters even more than with this case.  In this regard I also don't find it necessary to get too worked up and start flamewars and attack anyone's integrity.  Last, I'm glad you find my work to your liking, I wish you luck then and further success with your comic strip and hope you are careful not to fall into a similar situation again in the future.

Best regards,

Hec


So yeah, that should be the end of that I hope.  I'll be replying personally to everyone that messaged, commented and wrote me about this because I really appreciate that they took the time, also to those that put together the comparison images.  On that note I want to encourage everyone to keep that spirit and always seek truth stand up to those who lie, not just in the level of digital art-theft, but also in the higher levels that truly matter, like politics, religion and all matters that can or should be helping the word instead of making it worse.  This also makes a great seg-way for mentioning one (4 actually)of many things I've learned in the past couple years.  Four of them are the four agreements en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miguel_%… :

1. Be impecable with your word.
2. Don't take anything personally.
3. Don't make assumptions.
4. Always do your best.


They sound so simple, but once understood as the book explains them they're quite hard to really live by.  I'm still trying it and I highly recommend it.  I leave you then with that and hope it helps you too. :)

About Hec

Sat Feb 7, 2009, 1:34 PM
I'm a professional 2d/3d artist from Mexico, my specialty is characters. Went to school in the US where I got my degree in computer animation. After graduation I worked as a freelancer doing storyboards for small movie and commercial pitches, some sequential art for indy comics, and short 2d and 3d animations for motion graphics and cg studios.

After that I worked at Streamline Studios in Amsterdam where I met my girl kara-kedi and worked as a lead artist supervising art teams and creating art assets for various video game projects.  Lately I've been doing some freelance work and working on personal projects, that's more or less the short version of all that.  plop! :P

Blep, just updating my journal.  Seems the "Orphaned" works legislation may not be that bad after all.  Guess we'll see how that goes down with time.  I'm almost done with a few more 3d models and the 2d tutorial just needs a few more tweaks and then I'll post it for anyone interested.  I'm still wondering how to go about 3d tutorials since there's so much to cover in that field... I'll figure it out I guess.  Big changes comin' up for me.  Wish me luck. ;p

Hi and welcome if it's your first time stopping by here. Thanx a bunch if you commented, faved, or added my stuff to your devwatch. :)

Just a quick update on the journal here...  

I'm still preparing 2d and 3d tutorial materials (patience pleez) and commishes are still open.  I'll be posting my fixed rates here soon, but if you're interested and you got some cool junk for me to draw there may still be time to get a good deal on price, just drop me a note here.  

I'll be joining the Udon SF contest udoncrew.deviantart.com/ and I wish the best of luck to everyone elz joining.  Drawing SF characters is always a blast and I'm also loving the trailers and footage from the upcoming SF 4.  Hell Yeah!

Hi and welcome if it's your first time stopping by here. Thanx a bunch if you commented, faved, or added my stuff to your devwatch.

So I posted a few of the 3d versions of my concepts from games I've worked on and got pretty good response.  Also got a few questions on specs and things like that.  I guess I could do some tutorials for 3d stuff and post them here.  I've done simple 2d tutorials in the past also.  So which should I do first here, 2d or 3d?

Hello, if it's your first time visiting, welcome! I'm Hec, 2d and 3d artist working in the games industry as a lead artist. Here in this space you'll find some of my works. You can also find more of my stuff on my website listed below. To anyone that stops by here often or more than once, thanx a bunch and show me your junk if you got cool junk. :)

So yeah...  my website is now up and running hec.digital-sculptor.com/ .  Some parts like the links section still need to get done, but the core is there.  Also I just got back from Creanimax which was an animation, vfx and videogames development festival in Guadalajara, Mexico.  It was great to be back in Mexico if only for a couple of days.  I got to meet a bunch of interesting people from the industry that were there as speakers and presenters.  I gave a presentation on art creation for videogames,  I hope I did ok but next time I'll have to do much better. ;p

The event was still pretty small, but pretty well organized.  I was pleasantly surprised by the event and the potential it already presents.  3D Animation and Videogames are both in early stages of development in Mexico, but they're moving fast and on a good track.  My resolution now is to do whatever is in my reach to help Mexico develop more in these areas and help those who want to break in and by collaborating in some of the existing projects.  It's only the beginning.

I met some cool Mexican artists there like :iconrenecordova:, :icondarknova666:.

Also got in contact with others here in deviant like :iconmapetina:, and :iconmurciegalo: and many others will come up after this event I'm sure. :)

Back to my website.  It's up, it's ready and I'm still taking some commission work, those interested let me know.

Here in this space you'll find some of my works... soon I'll finish my new website where you will find more of my junk if you're interested in seeing it. To anyone that stops by here often or more than once, thanx a bunch and show me your junk if you got cool junk. :)

I started already on some commission work and I'm also starting to post prints here in DA, if both things go well I will continue to put more time and effort in both fronts.  I'm also working on a portfolio website where I will have a lot more of my art including some sequential samples and junk and stuff... :P

I'm still working out the prices for commissions, but in the meantime I'm keeping things fairly negotiable, so bring on your proposals and we'll see what we can work out.  

Thanx for the favs, devwatches and comments.  

Website is comin' soon!!!

Hi everyone...  I've been trying to free myself up a bit more from doing overtime at work since I wanna start doing more freelance on the side and try out comission work.  A couple of people have already shown interest so if more of you out there would like to try it out I'm down for it.  Just make sure you're serious about it, no freeloading plz.  Worksamples are in my gallery and further samples can be provided upon request.

I can't promise too much at the moment since I have a fairly demanding job and even when I'm not doing overtime some days I'm pretty beat, but if your requesti is interesting and you're willing to be fair about pay then it's all good. :) I'm willing to be very reasonable about pricing since I wanna get my hands on all kinds of challenges that people can throw at me, so bring it on!  drop me a note with the details and we can talk prices from there, after a few test comissions I'll probably standardize my fees. Plop. :P

Thanx to everyone watching, reading and commenting on my junk!
