Yeah looks familiar what was it again gangs of new york?
Wow, excellent sculpt. Daniel Day-Lewis really brought that character to life.:tu:
Dude ......Bill the BUTCHER!! I think our ideas are a 100% similar and our execution..not really but hey;)
One thing one my to-do list is to do a portret of Daniel Day-Lewis in the rol of Bill Cuttingham....cause he's the best actor I've seen playing the coolest character ever......nice
you did an awesome job on him I hope i can say the same about my version in the future
12-02-09, 03:16 PM
Gangs of New York to the T! Awesome job! Great likeness, you really nailed it.

12-30-09, 03:06 PM
Happy New Year Mutte!
That's massive! Love your sculpts.
Inspiring model mutte!
The work that you did on his head adds a lot to its character. It feels like a solid piece of modeling overall, and the detailing is just perfect.
Just a small bit. Because the base has a higher color saturation than the model it competes with it for the focal point.
12-30-09, 03:22 PM
wonderful how you did the wrinkles on the shoulder
12-30-09, 03:59 PM
this is such a beautiful model! great likeness... amazing detail... looks like he's ready to be in pictures!...amazing work!
12-30-09, 04:22 PM
My compliments -- looks fantastic! This is such a great piece, I really hope you can upload more pics soon. A close-up of the head would be great. :)
Happy New Year!
12-30-09, 04:51 PM
ooh i love that model! grate work man! I especially like the posture of the left hand!
Echt niet normaal meer man, elke keer als ik een model zie die ik het waard vind om op te slaan staat jou naam erbij!
12-31-09, 01:40 AM
:tu::tu::tu: Great sculpt !
(EDIT : groeten uit Brasschaat !)
nice work man
the muscles look a bit stiff to me but overall it's looking pretty nice
keep it up
12-31-09, 03:07 AM
one year of mutte696' great works. cheers and happy new year. :D
12-31-09, 07:31 AM
Excellent work, whats the poly count on the finished ztool. I can only get about 1 million polys out of my machine and I'm wondering what it takes to get that type of detail.
Very nice. The skin has an interesting unique feel to it, like tightly stretched leather or something.
01-01-10, 10:15 AM
Yeah, that is awesome! Excellent work!
01-01-10, 10:19 AM
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH that looks really good man! Keep up the awesome work! You gonna pose and texture him?
Best Wishes Maarten! Looks like I missed your latest piece (shouldn't have gone skiing...).
Great sculpt: strong shapes, feeling of weight and flow, great detailing.
I think this is one of my favourites!
da is how we like it :cool: :tu: .

Be careful, in the last one there is a problem on the black area, maybe you haven't notice because your monitor is too dark :)

:eek: You have managed to make me feel like crap and inspire me at the same time haha. :lol:
This is friggin amazing work! Its a great likeness and a great sculpt. Did you sculpt with perspective on or off? I am always curious to know when I see such great likeness and stunning works.
Would you mind showing the base mesh?
Top notch stuff :tu:
02-10-10, 12:10 PM
beautiful work :tu: it looks very natural GREAT!
wow really impressive ... i like the eye area a lot...

Amazing works bro! So many great stuff in this thread and I think it ought to become top-row eventually, it's definitely one in the making though =)
Keep 'em coming!
02-10-10, 04:19 PM
nice looking stuff!
I would suggest on the guy with the arrow through the chest, making the exit wound bigger than the arrow head and more torn
Awesome job on Bale! Man, you are working too much, haha.
02-11-10, 12:34 AM
This is fantastic! Great facial anatomy and very expressive. Very nice work.
damn dude:tu: :tu: :tu: :tu: :tu:
02-11-10, 07:30 AM
Awesome model, and nicely lit as well! :)
02-11-10, 01:07 PM
Congrats on another great piece. I like the older more rugged look you gave the sculpt
Great piece man! You managed to put a lot of character/personality in the sculpt. Very, very intense! :tu: :tu: :tu: :tu: :tu: if you ask me! I read that this wasn't intended as a portrait, but you should consider doing a full body of Bale, as he appeared in the Machinist (btw, how did you do the zipper and the cloth sitches?)

It's an ugly business, i admit, but tend to it immediately! :eek:
that wolf really knows how to style his pubes.
03-09-10, 01:28 PM
Great work as always! Some of the anatomy on the upper legs and back right shoulder is bothering me a bit. You dont post enough. Is there anywhere I can report that? lol.
03-10-10, 06:46 AM
bro amazing work man....
can u pls give me the mat or the link...plsplsplspslplspsl!!!
03-10-10, 07:41 AM
QUOTE : that wolf really knows how to style his pubes.
CRACK ME UP :lol::lol:
Awesome, awesome sculpt! Another fine addition, your demo reel will be killer!!! :cool: :tu:
you are a machine...so talented modeler...i guess there will be no problem for you to find a job...
for the game industry you should learn baking textures too and applying them to a lowpoly version of your zbrushsculpts ... also its always good to have 2 or 3 textured models...
good luck...i wish you all the best... :tu:
03-10-10, 02:14 PM
Excellent job! Very cool style!!

amazing work man:tu:
Frankie's great! :tu: ! I like the Tony Stark bust a lot too: at this point, the Robert Downey likeness isn't very apparent, but the sculpt (pose, props and how they refer to the storyline) carries a lot of power. I like that you decided to sculpt him like this instead of "Iron Man" :tu: .

excellent work, i tehink you did a great job with the old man, really showing great detail in the face, keep posting!
beautiful. personally, I'm distracted by the shape of the crown.
hey, what brushes/brush settings did you use for the fur?
05-05-10, 09:08 PM
Great model, pose and composition. Excellent work, very impressive!!!:tu::tu::tu::)
Nutha' fine piece man!!!!! Love the fur/feather/skin detailing and texturing :tu: .
Wow, crazy work on the fur. Love the topic as well.
No need to worry about not finding a modeler position imho. Just remember to choose wisely :)
05-06-10, 01:28 PM
Another great model! :cool: The fur is looking really good. As far as I remember I never modeled fur, but your model inspires me to try it. :)

All sculpts are great but that is really awesome in all of them.

mr hyde concept ZBC II.jpg
mr hyde copy.jpg
a material breakdown I comp these back and forth until I'm happy with a general feeling, add some dirt layers and some Zdept and paint repaint the hair and presto. normaly I render a rimlight but system kept crashing on this render, that's why it could the result could be beter. O well It's just a sketch.

Though you said you're low on inspiration, I think you produced one of your best works :tu:
EDIT: btw how do you render out from zbrush in that large of a format? Mine crashes sometimes with the double...
06-11-10, 01:32 AM
very nice take on him mutte!
I like your comp! can you tell us a brakedown of your comp? I want to learn how that works and see how other people do it!
grate work as usual man, Im a fan of your art! keep it up!
06-11-10, 10:17 AM
i wish my 'low on inspiration' was as good (high? :)) as yours!
Great job on the sculpt, maybe just the similar choice of mats for your comp that could be a little stronger?
I like him, if he knocks on my door, I'm letting him in... well, as long as he doesn't try to mount the dog! :tu::tu::tu:

cherub_rock - thanks a lot, I saw your work is improving fast, keep it up.
gordon-v - I've been following your work for a while, nice turntables man. thanks!!!
RawSunlight - Thanks,hehe... I'm not sure he would not mount your dog, I think you'll be lucky it only the dog that he gets a fix on.
I reworked him in a decimated test render like a conceptsculpt. I hope you like him.

That's awesome, I love the render in front of the ZB screen. Strong work :tu:

08-20-10, 08:24 AM
Hi guys, thanks. I'm back on track and had a blast on the betateam, thanks again pixo. Here's something I was working on this week.
You should try him some day he's got a way difficult and weird head.
08-20-10, 08:46 AM
great sculpt mutte is that Mark Hammil??:D
Loved watching your work, very original, with a unique taste that is enjoyable to look at.
awesome ! recognized immediately , the force is strong with this one :)
I like the way you added the details on the skin too .
08-20-10, 10:25 AM
08-20-10, 10:35 AM
Very strong character!,:tu:
08-20-10, 12:11 PM
08-20-10, 03:24 PM
Fantastic bust Mutte. You're right though, I always though he was a funny looking guy. :D
08-20-10, 11:46 PM
Another great model!!!
I can well believe that it was hard to model him. I don`t think that I ever try to sculpt a likeness bust. Too difficult for me. :cool:
I`m jealous.. no matter what you`re sculpting -- it`s always looking great. :)You`re exceptionally talented!
08-22-10, 06:35 AM
You should try him some day he's got a way difficult and weird head.
Yes, you added too much fat at the cheeks. And your bust looks older than Luke.
08-22-10, 07:48 AM
I really like the style of your last character! :tu:
08-22-10, 09:45 AM
Really lovely sculpts. I just got my own copy of z4 to use at home for my own stuff, so I will be hopefully doing a loot more experimenting and sculpting for fun and development - your work is very inspirational!
08-22-10, 10:51 AM
Incredible body of work man ! Thanks for the inspiration ! :tu:
08-22-10, 11:32 AM

thats frickin cool man , what do you use to do a render like that , was just curious if you used any sort of displacement etc.
09-07-10, 12:40 PM
09-07-10, 12:44 PM
Extremely super damn cool!! an authentic creature ready to be in a feature film seriously!:tu:

This rocks big time Mate,
09-07-10, 01:27 PM
Lovely, lovely and lovely again. Awesome work and so rich in detail and subject matter. There is so much to love in this thread I am not sure where to start. Thanks for sharing.
09-07-10, 01:39 PM
I agree with mansarek.....definitely a movie quality creepy. ultra kewlies
09-07-10, 01:57 PM
Waaaoow! i love this last image!
fantastique progress since your first posts!
I really, really dig the skull and the chest, but maybe the limbs are not up to the awesomeness of these parts...?
09-07-10, 09:53 PM
superb work....awesome render..... :tu: :tu:
Awesome stuff I like your sculpt.:tu:
09-08-10, 05:21 AM
This is one freaking beast! is'nt he sweet? :P
09-08-10, 05:34 AM
this has to go top row... so utterly awesome.
09-08-10, 05:57 AM
First of all, I love this sculpt, I think it is very nice. But I would also like to voice my opinion that the feet seem to be lacking, it seems to me that there is not enought weight distribution in the feet, especially the toes, I understand that he has wings and that affects his body mass especially with gravity and all, but I would like to see more bottom surface area of his toes on the ground, perhapse more spread to give the feel that he is actually touching the ground, and not seem like his body is just "placed" on the ground. Again I love the sculpt, on of my favs :tu: :tu: , but I just thought I would offer an idea/opinion. :)
09-08-10, 06:42 AM
Freaking awesome dude! I think the wings need some more work to get in par with the res, maybe some damage, rips and veins.
09-08-10, 07:03 AM
That really is fantastic!
09-08-10, 08:02 AM
Finally, a Top Row worthy piece since Zbrush 4 came out. Love this!
09-08-10, 10:32 AM
I like it! ;)
