same technique as the bots, all models done in zbrush, rendered in cycles... aimed for mood :-)
ooooo me likes !!!! refreshing and calming from all the monsters here !! great colors too !!
" crits n comments always welcome ! "
" im not half as dumb as i think you look !! "
Hi Kokoro, Refreshing is right, I love this one! Elegant and mysterious ... I really like your color palate a lot. Kind of like floating Royal Wedding cakes through a mine field. I would love to see more like this! Cheers, David
this is a study piece, for learning sculpting and lightning, and so i chose my favourite artist as "teacher" :-) ... i know i am very far from the original, but hey i think i learned a lot from trying to follow him as closely as i can...
modeled in zbrush, head is retopologized from a dynamesh to get the lines clearer, dress and veil are dynameshes, belt and band are extract meshes... rendered with cycles. i hope you enjoy.
Beautiful job on the Michelangelo Pieta study...Excellent job of capturing the Emotion.. Luv the way the cloth drapery came out also..
Hey, I searched yesterday for about an hour trying to find a set of Fatmiri's matcaps that were tailor made for this pieta study of yours....They were a set of Marble matcaps..really nice marble look to them...there were about six of them..each having a subtle variation to it..really looked like real marble..the kind that Michelangelo used in his works....They used to be in the Matcap Repository...Can't for the life of me figure out why they would be taken out of there,..they are really beautiful to work with when doing marble sculptures like the study that you just did.
Anyway, if you ever come across them, I think you would really enjoy working with them...Just thought I would mention them..Who knows,...they may still be out there, or should I say in here somewhere..but I sure couldn't find them..Maybe I was just looking in the wrong place..been known to happen..
Keep up the great work and studies Kokoro,.. Always an Inspiration, and a real pleasure for me to see those Master studies of yours..
wow, glenn, thank you so much for your efforts, i do appreciate very much :-) ... i try next time make better marble :-) with this piece my focus was on modeling and lightning, and, as i seem be able only to concentrate on making one, or maybe two, things well at a time, i neglected the marble this time... but next time will be better, i hope :-) ... and, yes, more studies of the masters will come, i feel i learn a lot from doing these. in the works is a bernini study...:-)
Looks good, nice sculpt and render.
Hi Kokoro, Really very lovely ...... they just get better and better! Cheers, David
@ kokoro After looking at some of your wood carvings I see what you mean about the planes and edges.....
I was looking at my horse and the texture just reminded me of a wood like surface and thats how it became a wood carving..
I appreciate your visit and I'm glad you liked my little effort
I like your sculpts very much. The Pieta especially is very graceful .... Deke
