Hey gang, quick update. I made the shocks for the rear of the car as you will see below. However, when I closed ZBrush and reopened it, I had lost my file (I saved it in three different places on my computer, I always do so as I am working). However, none of my backed up files worked. So, I lost around two hours of work. I found however, my own mistake. The file of my car has gotten so big, that I need more RAM. Yes, I attempted to decimate, but didn't like all the strange stuff it does to the mesh. And I am NOT RETOPOING this thing. So, tomorrow I am buying more RAM to finish this darn thing-
I have also been working on a character to go along with my car. Below is what I have been working with (far from being finished i.e. need to work on the waist, adjust the muscles, make the legs more 'tube' like-see reference image I made below-etc).
The reference image I have been working from. Yes, I am looking to finish off the entire piece with a 'stand' i.e. possibly rock formations and some junk car parts thrown into the mix.
And on a last note (this has nothing to do with ZBrush, but, thought folks would get a kick from it), I finished eating my Chili Cheese Hamburger Helper during my 30 minute lunch break yesterday, and created the piece below with the left over grease/water/chili cheese 'color'. Used the fork on the side to draw a quick sketch of a mans head (hey, I felt inspired-).
Crits extremely welcomed (on everything). Best.
ha ha ha @ the hamburger helper guy !!! ever see the guy that does this with coffee and spoon on napkins - really cool see if i can find the link ?
" crits n comments always welcome ! "
" im not half as dumb as i think you look !! "
Hey Dragon, that hot rod is looking sweet! Oh, and the residual food art is rather unique; you should recreate that as a ZBrush sculpt and texture it with the photo

Dragon, the rod is full of awesome!
Side note; if you had done the face on the plate as Jesus you could have Ebay'ed it for a million bucks!
time to visit back your sketchbook.
This is a brilliant idea - the mix between a HOTROD and the roman style is just kickass!
I love the vibrant colors and the character is on spot!
Really looking forward to see the finished scene!
Hi VISEone, and now, you know why I love YOUR WORK. I enjoy everything everyone puts up here, BUT, if it's 'cartoonish' or 'hard surface', I will always go to those posts first. I have downloaded your link to my desktop to make sure I stay up with what you post over at your forum. Ya, you caught it, I am trying to go with a Roman/futuristic/'cool' cartoon style. I have a ton more after I finish this one i.e. a cartoony character with a cartooned vehicle. Just gotta get past this one and I will be fine (it's been hell for me trying to understand this neat 3D thing). But I will get there- Again, a million thanks for coming by.
Hey gang, haven't posted in some time. Anywho, got the itch to start on a new project from a sketch I did while at work last year. For now, I am just calling it "The Mayan". Below are some quick concept sketches (i.e. looking to add tattoo's, scars, necklace, headwear, change the base, and a stylized JAGUAR next to the character), and my start on the Mayan's body using Dynamesh. Right now not sure if I am making the Mayan Calendar in the back all GOLD or BONE/TAN colored. Hope you like.
Messing around with Dynamesh (Alien) and playing around with 'Kotelnikoff'.
A Jaguar for my 'The Mayan' sculpt. Hope you all like. A little C&C is very welcomed. Best, Dragon.
A little simple Step by Step:
Messing around on how big to make the Jaguar. Next step, finish the Mayan (in comp):
hey Dragon, the tiger looks great and excellent pose.
VERY nice works AZTEC and MAYAN indeed..
