Art Update Catch Up June 2017

Going to do a bit of an art dump here, as I haven’t been too great on keeping up with posting here…

If you would like to keep up to date more frequently, check out my facebook, instagram and twitter pages linked at the bottom of the post :) :) :)

This first illustration is one I finally finished for my other half for our anniversary last year. A little ode to our year that was 2016.
Our first overseas trip to Japan and also the big interstate move to Melbourne.

This next one is taking what I learnt with the last post in zbrush and attempting to try pushing those techniques further. Also had a go at concepting on the fly with this one, however I think I will stick to a 2d sketch first before hand to save time.



Here is some interior concept art for a personal VR project I am creating. The space man is also apart of this. Expect to see more of this in the future ;)

This is my current work in progress, using zspeheres and then skinning to model the trees pictured above. I need to find a better way to do the runes on the trunk of the tree. Will also be doing each tree individually to keep variation between each tree :)

Meet the Artist 2017



With the fun times of getting a casual job to pay the bills, I am a little bit late to this hashtag… #meettheartist

There is also that anxious decision on how you want to convey yourself… However! I got there in the end! lol Enjoy!

Here is something I painted for halloween this year, finally happy enough with it to post it.

Done in photoshop CS6 on an intuos 4 pro.

Also I got overwhelmed trying to upload inktober pictures to my social media sites so that’s why they slowed down completely on here.

I will also start uploading just my art to another wordpress of mine shortly, just want to tweak a few things before posting on there :) Bits and pieces will also still be posted here ;)

In the meantime check out my;



Graduating Student Reel 2015

Student Reel 2015 from Lisa Gane on Vimeo.

Sorry for being so quiet lately I really needed to put my head down and finish this year off so I could graduate.

So here it is my graduating student reel.

Still a lot to learn but that will come with practice and time.

Enjoy :) 

Show Reel Character Concept

In the next 6 months, you will see this guy come to life.

Been a bit hesitant to reveil anything for my showreel before its completion… However this can’t hurt. Concept character for my storyreel, still needs some orthographic views done but before he is modelled the environment will be the main focus

Stay tuned.


VFX Dynamics: Concept

Due to time constraints I haven’t been able to concept as much as I would like, so I have had to just go with my first idea instead of exploring a few ideas. In the future I will need to time manage better in order to actually do this.

So below is my storyboard for my particle simulation.



The animation starts with the UFO already in the scene. As the UFO gets closer and opens its vents, I am thinking about what would be happening as they open, so on each consecutive frame there will be a gush of fumes which over the time of the animation will vary and change. However as I think about the execution of this, it may be easier to just have faint fumes constantly happening throughout the animation/simulation whilst the vents are open.

As the door opens on the UFO, this will be the start of the main part of my particle simulation. In regards to the previous post where  I mentioned “curiosity” and “non threatening” so hopefully I have managed to bring those ideals across in the story board. I am also trying to stick to the idea of “less is more” in this situation as I feel if I was to over saturate the scene with particles, that the main ideals will be lost if it isn’t done right.

Caesar the Cat

I know I have been quiet lately, had holidays from TAFE and work as well as life throwing out some curve balls.

However recently I created an Instagram for my design/art stuffs, you can follow along here @twentythreebydesign

I am also more active on my facebook page which is

In saying that though, being back in TAFE there will be some stuff being put up here but majority will be on the facebook page.

Now that house keeping is out of the way, I recently drew some lovely friends of mine a portrait of their cat, this helped keep my mind off things and help me focus on what it is I want to be doing with my time. The illustration is 2B fine point lead on illustration board which I then scanned into photoshop for a bit of clean up and where I also added in the colours. I felt keeping it black and white made it too plain and adding the colours in helped to bring that more playful and innocent/child like quality back into the illustration.
