View Full Version : a bit 'o' sculpting
06-07-06, 10:55 PM
Some sculpting I did this last week. I'm working on crisp details. I think it's better to start with a mesh that will divide up to around 2 million polys. This 3DSMax base mesh weighs in at about 1000 polys. Either 500 or 2000 would have been better. Next time I guess. :D

Great model, only the textures kinda hide the great model i think :)

I like it very much already. Am I right to assume that you used the layer brush for that cap? Allways wondered what I could use the layerbrush for...

Now that is worth the time it took. ;)

yes! really nice work!
it made me want to make a superhero scene
Looks great! But that guy is a little old to be parading around in a superhero costume, no?

Looks great - though it does makes me think of an old man in a rubber mask trying to inject a little more excitement in the bedroom.:D

I like the character...

Wonderful modeling, with one of the best mouths I've ever seen. The untextured side-on pic shows your skill very clearly. :tu:

Thanks for all the comments!
pixelsoul - the textures are a little undercooked, arent they? :)
Plakkie - thanks! Actually the mask was sort of the point of the excercise, I have a set of uv's that I preserved to paint the very basic texture, then used AUV tiles to make a high res mask and inflated the mesh with that mask applied, then went back to the regular UV's to paint. I love that ZBrush lets you do that!
Thanks Jason! I got some good feedback from people I know along the way that improved it too!
Thank you very much, Alex. I've been digging your warrior, especially the sculpt-in-a pose part of it.
k0sm1k - I know what you mean. You can submit artwork to be a Marvel Comic cover. It's supposed to just be the main character in a dynamic shot. I bet someone here could make a rockin' comic cover!
j.c. Ha! Quite! Actually, the choice of his age was driven by my love for the Kingdom Come artwork by Alex Ross - hence the age.
Thanks John Turner! Your website is out of control! Are you at Monolith now?
Boozy - Does that work? Where do I get one?
Sebcesoir - I'm honored. I have enjoyed your work since I first saw it.
Thanks Moochie! - very generous
Frenchy - super comment - heroic even! :)

An update. Haven't had much time to work on it. I've been interviewing last week and next week.

I love that render-style!! Nice and grimy. :cool: The pose is very cool too!
I don't really understand the texture of his suit. What material is it supposed to be made of ?

His hands and wrist seem to be extremely broken and dislocated, but besides that GREAT WORK!!!
