View Full Version : Self Portrait In Progress
09-22-05, 03:06 PM
Hi. New here.
Here's something I made today.
I'm feeling too lazy to look for a good tutorial on ears... It's not that I don't know what they look like it's just really hard to sculpt certain things in zbrush... Like the nose. That was annoying.
And the crease in the eyes. That was impossible.
Also, I think, the "stubble" looks really retarded in retrospect.
I still haven't gotten the knack of the "pinch" & "inflate" tools...
But hey, I'm new to this.
More some other time.

practice practice practice
how do you like yourself bald? am too chicken to try a self portrait...don't really wanna see myself and I would have to animate it and do stupid stuff with it and I think it's more fun to do to other people.:rolleyes:
keep going ...you're doing ok for someone learning some new software.

I LOVE being bald... I have no choice.
I started losing my hair when I was eleven years old! :)
I didn't use any reference photos when I worked on this but now that I'm looking I can definitely see some problems. I had no idea my nose was that big...
My girlfriend and I are trying to decide what nationality my nose came from??? Maybe it's just an amalgam of fifty or sixty different races and creeds all together in my nose. Wow, what a beautiful thought.
Anyway, I'll post more on this next week.

Good start .. and welcome. There's a newb challenge in the Challenges forum at the moment, looking specifically at low poly heads. Future challenges are going to deal with ears, noses, mouth and stuff like that. Next challenge, which I'll try to post this w/e, will be dealing with putting eyes in heads and sculpting eyelids to fit. Maybe see you over there if you get time.

No, seriously. I HAD to fix that nose instead of actually doing my work. Screw paperwork. Zbrush is FUN!
But my Guts are telling me it's Martini Time so I'll send more after this thing has ears.
Probably next week, since Friday "Martini Time" usually lasts all weekend. :) Jeff_rhinoplasty.jpg

Looks good so far! Haha, awesome steel reserve, best way to start off a party night. ;)

haha well at least you have a good skull for it. There is a guy where I work whose bald head I love. I never know what day of the week it is but he shaves it on Fridays so ya gotta love that bald head!!
Moochie has an ear tutorial here (http://www.zbrushcentral.com/zbc/showthread.php?t=25501&highlight=moochie)....that might get ya started on those ears.

haha hey man! Be sure to check out my post of the ogre I did. This is Chris, Ben Soderstroms friend!
As far as the head goes I would say the nose should be a little smaller and the forehead and cheeks a little smoother. But other than that great job!

Thanks for the ear tutorial link, aminuts.
Now that martini time is over I'll be working some more. I'll post later.
Oh, and Chris, I'm glad to see you making cool art.
How's your back??? Even I don't have stories like THAT! ;)

Why was that set to grey by default... Jesus what a day!:o

This is very likely the last time I'm going to work on this.
Time to move on to something better.
Thanks again for all your comments.jeff_head5_w_ears.jpg

Nice start. You're cheating on your throat waddle again :) Your nose is more prominent and larger to your other features. More and rounder mass in the brows and eye orbits. Nostrils seem small to the rest of the probosis. Maxilla and the soft bits on it should protrude a bit more. Jawline seems a bit hardline. Softer? Nice work. Better than I could do at the moment I think.
Keep at it, and enjoy grading those papers.

Maybe that would make me feel better!
I really should've planned the ears a LOT better. The geometry was fighting me, tooth and nail, there. Same with the nose.
Pain in the anus if you know what I mean.
Oh and my dangling "neck sac"... That's why we need to work out more!
