New Look!

Alright, I am giving the blog a make over, and organizing it a little bit better.  So now each post will have a category as you can see to the right.  All my sketch and anatomy diagrams are going in Anatomy Studies, I will post my life drawing soon in Life Drawing section and all the sculpts based off the anatomy work I am doing will go into Digital Sculpture.  Just organizing everything so that as I continue to work I will have a more organized way  of presenting my work.  btw I graduate in 3 weeks :)

Fishy Fishy



Alright here is the mesh retopologized ready for final detailing and sculpting. Took forever, literally, but... got it done and quick paint over so you can see what the heck those spiky things are for.

10/12


Alright well I took couple days off from the daily sculpt.. not by choice!! I was just spending every waking hour, literally trying to retopo my other model, and after like 3 times I finally got it and i will post that in a second. But this is 10/12.

10/9



For the daily sculpt I did a hand study, as you can see I didn't get as far as I would have wanted, the process is a lot slower then faces however, the most I do the better I will get.  So there it is. You can see the base mesh on the left.

Updated Anatomy


Updated Fish Man!!

10/8



Alright so I did another female, and I am happy with it I think its the best female face I have done so far.  And I did a quick little hair test which I thought I would include for kicks, I blurred it out in photoshop because it was just way too "hairy".  But with that being said I decided to expand the daily face sculpt ... into other parts of the body mainly hands / feet.   I feel like I have a good enough grasp in just a week and half of sculpting faces everyday that I would behoove me to start sculpting hands and feet, primarily hands I think.

Malto Meal is way better then Oatmeal!

Alright, I know doenst look much like the reference but at this point I am focused more on understanding the basic forms of the face and the skull structure under the skin with muscle and fat then actual detail etc. I will work up to that though. :)

New Character wip

Here is a sneak peak of the next character I am working on with Cesar Dacol with an online class. Lots of work to be done but you can see the anatomy in progress as I build the foundation

10/1



I woke up at 7:30 this morning to get a good start on all the work I wanted to get done today only to find my tablet was broken.. but whatever, it fixed itself a few hours later and this is todays sculpt. Not much resemblance but there none the less is the reference... going to go work on my other character now!

Soo... I was on Zbrush Central like I am a fair amount, theres so many great artists on there. Its very inspiring to see all the work there. However, on the other hand its in the same way a tad bit discouraging, so many people that do such good work and having to compete with them for jobs is just kinda of an overwhelming thought. Well so I decided that if I woke up a little bit earlier then I usually do I could do one face study a day. And by the time I am done with school it would be have definitely paid off. So I am going to be doing one a day, along with the work here for the class.

So here is one I did this morning in about 2.5 hours. I found a random image and used it as reference / inspiration to create an relative of that person. So hopefully you can see some resemblance or at least inspiration from the reference image.
