    Talking sommerlied sketchbook

    Hello everyone!

    I'm new to ZBrush and new to this forum

    My copy of ZBrush has just arrived and I started to play around with it. I haven't done 3D before, so there's still plenty for me to learn. Honest feedback on any of my work would be very appreciated. I'm here to show some of the stuff I do, have fun, connect to other people and to improve and learn.




    Here's the first image I did. I made it for the gnomon forums contest february 2012. The topic was "Portrait of a warrior". I modeled and rendered it completely in ZBrush, then made some final adjustments and painted the background in Photoshop.

    If you're interested, there's a WIP thread for this on the gnomon forums: http://forums.thegnomonworkshop.com/...ead.php?t=5149


    I also had a lot of fun with practicing polypaint


    ... and tried to render this in maya, with a pink background:



    Then I watched a lot of ZClassroom videos, and with more knowledge am currently working on this one:



    Thank you very much!

    @sculptntoo thank you very much for your advice!

    Here's what I made today. Everyone seems to be sculpting aliens so I thought I give it a try too. Used alphas and spotlight for the first time.


    I'd love to put this into an environment. Maybe like this:


    thanks for viewing!

    First of all - Welcome to ZBrushCentral! Nice to have you here!
    It's great that you have started sculpting and you are on a great way!
    Looking pretty cool already, definently needs some anatomy practice, but just be motivated and never stop sculpting!
    Looking forward to your progress and I will keep an eye on your sketchbook!
    All the best and happy sculpting,
    - Kenny

    @KC-Production thank you very much for your kind words! You're definitely right about my anatomy. I'm doing my best to practice a looot more!

    Here is what I am having fun with right now:





    The scene is a first test render of what I'm trying to achieve. I want to add a second character & a lot more details & different lights.

    Here's an update on my work in progress:
    I started sculpting the second character for the picture above. I'm having a hard time getting the anatomy right for this pose, thus I'd be happy for any suggestions.


    Aside from that, I did another sculpt today. I feel I'm getting faster and don't need to think as much about all the technical details anymore, yay
    I still consider this a work in progress, since I'm not content with the texture yet. It's for this months gnomon forums event, "space helmet".

    thanks everyone
