a fantasy creature made in sculptris, still learning, especially the texturing is not so easy for me, but I guess I will learn that too:)
so first try in texturing below

another spawn of my imaginatino done in SculptrisPrisonercol.jpg
08-03-10, 12:04 AM
the lastest try in Sculptris for me, working on the texturing too please let my know what you thinkoldwoman.jpg
You do textures so well, especially the old lady's face. I just haven't got the hang of the texture thing yet. I'll have to trawl the web.

He is one of my favortie fantasy movie creatures and maybe you know him....
not quite finished yet but I liked what I got so farDarkness.jpg
Very cool! The fur is nicely done. :)
I like the detail. Maybe at some point you could make him slightly less symmetrical to give it more realism(?):tu:
Nice works Mermaid! ;)
I really like the old lady. She has wrinkles in all the right spots. I especially like her "fallen in" old peoples mouth. If i may give you a tip; with your next sculpt (if it involves a head) try to really focus on giving the eyes the right spherical volume. Dont be afraid to be rough (use grab) and drag stuff around until it clicks. It will be worth it. :tu:
Keep sculpting. :)

another try in Sculptris. Importet as textured and colord object into Vue 8.5 inf. Final material tweaking done in Vue.
The tree ist great, Mermaidine! :) I like the snakeskin guy, too, though I'd hope for a bit of texture bump for the skin.
I love your mushroom snail. The painting on the alien is done very well. My favourite is the tree. It looks wonderful rendered like that, and the texture is impressive. The sky looks good and I like the haze in the picture, was that intentional?:tu:
09-06-10, 02:24 PM
@ dreamz: yep was intentional.... the haze I mean...lol... was rendered in Vue 8.5 inf.
Made another old woman today, not yet painted so another WIP I guess
09-06-10, 02:49 PM
I love your tree!!
I was wondering how you imported your textures into Vue?
09-06-10, 02:54 PM
Thanks Celtic, I exportet the bumpmap and the psd file seperaty from Sculptris (click the advanced options in paint modus and you will get the tabs to export bumps and psd) and imported them into Vue. The only problem in Vue is, you have to change the Higlights from black to white when importing obj. from Sculptris, else it will look somewhat strange
09-06-10, 03:19 PM
Hey youre no slouch at texturing yourself ....looks pretty cool, good work:D
09-06-10, 03:28 PM
Thanks Blue :) still learning but I guess I am getting near it :)
This second old lady looks really promising! Is it me or the forehead might need just a little bit more roundness? It looks just a tiny little bit flat (but it might be the angle / perspective giving me this impression).
I like your tree, it has a really interesting looking shape.
Loving the slug/snail texturing too :tu:

nice work with sculptris. I see you' re from Switzerland. I' m from Switzerland to. Do you also work with ZBrush or do you use Sculptris only?
Nice to see that there are other 3D-Artists from Switzerland on this Forum.
Thanks for sharing your 3D-Sculpts, they are nice. How long are you working with 3D? What other Tools do you use?
Thanks again and i hope to hear from you soon...
Greets from ZH
I like the old lady a lot. There's a huge amount of character in her face. :D:tu:
09-07-10, 10:39 AM
@ mermaidine Thanks for the tip. I'll try it out tonight.:D
09-07-10, 12:30 PM
@ Mr.T: thanks:D and yep I think the part just above the eyes with the wrinkles could well have a little inflate, thanks for mentioning
@Jakri51: Salü and I wrote you a pm:D
@celtic: let me know if it worked out for you:D
09-07-10, 03:36 PM
just a quick one for today, even had the time for coloring :D
09-07-10, 05:33 PM
very nice ! "uuuh" "uuuh" (are seals brown and shiny ?) :D real good work on the nose and mustache........
09-08-10, 04:03 AM
@blue yep the normally are, mine is a little genetic aberation but I liked him better this way...lol
@knacki thanks :)
and I gave him the fitting surrounding in Vue today
That's another beautiful render :tu:
09-08-10, 11:38 AM
Great render and environment. High tide on a hazy afternoon I can almost smell the salt air! Just imagine the assets you can generate without having to resort to Cornucopia. I pumped!:tu::tu:
09-08-10, 12:08 PM
thanks dreamz, and jms
exactly, Celtic, that's what I did the tree for (which is a freebie for others too) and will do a lot of other things just to myliking und just for the scene I have in mind:D
Oh forgot to post the tree in the freebe section here...lol... that's what I will do right now...
09-09-10, 03:46 PM
still very inthe beginning but I guess you can see where it heads to:D lyingwoman.jpg
09-09-10, 04:27 PM
Now that one is coming out quite nicely. Are you going to bend the edges down to make it look like a bed with all of the wrinkles in the sheet or leave it as a plane?
Nice stuff man! I really liked the first monster on page one:tu:
Wow! Now that is so beautiful!
09-09-10, 09:03 PM
I like this one alot:tu::tu::tu: the way you have sculpted her out from the plane looks like she is beautifully molded into a mattress, Well done!!
09-11-10, 03:05 PM
Thanks guys...smile... nice to know you liked her
So this is todays new doodle "Relaxation"
09-11-10, 04:33 PM
Mmmmm! Beautiful girls from Switzerland :D Great Stuff Mermadine!
09-11-10, 06:18 PM
Hi Mermaidines :)
Nice, really nice job on those last two...Beautiful
Great sensitivity, feeling projected..:tu: :)
This is another very characterful piece, Mermaidine. You are very good at putting personally into your work. :D:tu:
09-14-10, 03:53 PM
thanks for your comments...smile...really appreciated:D
and here is a typical one for my homeland;)
09-14-10, 04:24 PM
Nice work, Is she the Cow that helps make Lindt chocolate? Mmmmmm! :D
I want her Exported to the US....oh and not as an obj file:lol:
09-15-10, 07:17 AM
this little flying monster
09-15-10, 02:29 PM
and an update on the cow...lol..one of my rare painting trys:D
09-15-10, 10:37 PM
Love the little cross eyed munster....the cow is good , even though I see the udders really feels like a bull to me......maybe I'm a little cross eyed myself :D
09-16-10, 01:32 PM
another woman came today out of doodeling with Sculptris
09-16-10, 02:53 PM
She looks good Mermaid, Are you ever going to get the lady in Bed textured?
09-16-10, 03:07 PM
thanks and hmm I guess I will give her a try...smile.. but don't know when, we will see
09-19-10, 10:51 AM
another try in Sculptris with painting
another try in Sculptris with painting
soldier.jpgIt's very alive this one.
the cow is really nice.
What happened with the girl lying on bed?
Is there some progress?
In my opinion still the most attractive sculpture from yours (beside all the funny animal faces which are excellent)
Did you had some probs to get the eye clear on the last one?
Just asking, because I had those probs also when I did the frog.
Keep it coming.
09-24-10, 05:18 PM
is my exercise for today...
@ Knacki, thanks and yes I had some problems with the eyes, but in this case I like the not clear version, and about the girl on the bed, she is still sleeping, but I guess I will come back to her
09-25-10, 09:21 AM
Hi Mermaidine :)
Be sure to save that woman on the bed one done on a plane..as it is now.
Just make another version of it to experiment with and push further..Woman on bed #2..That way you won't lose the original, which I really like..:)
I like this newest one also..The baby yawning.:tu: ..A small suggestion ..Maybe make the upper gum line a little thicker, so that it is not mistaken for teeth.:)
That baby is well done. Reminds me of some frantic moments looking for a bottle lol
09-27-10, 03:53 AM
@Spirit: thanks...smile... and yep I saved the girl on the bed for further exploration and thanks for the suggestion about the gum
@Tartan: lol...yep normally it is from sleep to HUNGRY in no time...lol
09-27-10, 06:30 AM
Really nice sculpt. Each one you do is getting better and better.
Now go wake up the woman in bed everyone wants to see her finished!!!:D
09-27-10, 07:33 AM
Great baby! I can just hear the quavering tone as the the little nipper adds more emphasis to his demands. ... Glad to be past those years. :D
09-27-10, 08:15 AM
lovely baby mermaidine !
clearly can hear her voice ... or may be his ? :)
This baby looks really nice :D
09-28-10, 05:11 PM
Thanks a lot newb, celtic, Nemo and Mr. T...smile
and here is todays doodle:
She is going to bed.. throwing her slippers behind and ready to jump in...lol... which is what I will do in a few minutes too;)
She is going to bed.jpg
09-29-10, 10:41 PM
pretty darn good for a doodle, wouldn't you say :qu: I like it....................
09-30-10, 04:50 AM
Very nice pose mermaidine !
really can feel that she is tired,... may be because of sculpting for hours and hours with Sculptris ... :)
10-04-10, 02:45 PM
thanks Blue and Nemo...smile
For today I have done a new version of one of my favorite movie characters, some of you mights know him too:D
10-04-10, 03:50 PM
The Lord of Darkness, oh yes, this guy scared me like nothing else when I was a kid :lol:
10-08-10, 11:28 PM
Thanks for your encouraging comments .......Nessi or rather Pteromermaphant
Sea serpent is now posted in Challenge 3.....I posted on the last day so i dont think anybody got to see it.......
10-08-10, 11:53 PM
Looks good so far. I suggest refining the sculpt some more .
Use "Pinch" for the horns and the clay+flatten brushes for the
face and neck.
11-14-10, 08:38 AM
any hope to see some new works from you mermaidine ...
11-14-10, 04:14 PM
Yeah....We kinda miss seeing your cool idea's........
Yes, I asked this myself too.
11-15-10, 04:29 PM
thanks guys, so nice to know you are missing me:D . I had to pause due to a broken wrist and now I am deep in my vue work again...lol...but I won't forget Sculptris, will post something new soon...smile
11-17-10, 03:02 PM

Cute. I like this water monster.
Nice. I missed your different way of seeing things!
