    It looks great man! I love the expression and the stylized feel.

    only critique I can think of is that the eyes may need a little bit more "life" in them. Maybe add a little bit more specularity or use a different matcap/standard material such as the toy plastic? regardless, it looks pretty dam good!

    Yes, having looked away from it for a while that is what really stands out to me as well. I actually already use the toy plastic material, and I also wanted to hand paint some reflections, but I could't make it look right since they are mostly in shadow.
    It was a short little project for fun, so I'll see if I find some time to revisit it.
    Thanks a lot!

    Hi Santis

    Hey..Nasty looking goblin ...You are getting pretty good there with depicting subtle emotions,,Great job

    Waiting to see what you will do with the FiberMesh...might be a real nice addition to your arsenal of tools for these sculpts that you do..

    Anyway,..Keep up the great progress...Great to see you posting again..

    Hi Glenn, thanks for the feedback!
    Yes, I sometimes play around a little with it, but haven't figured out a good way to add it to my current workflow yet. But I will someday!

    Had some time over for something a bit different last night
    I wanted to try and see how it worked out to paint a model in Photoshop entirely, just exporting a render with the basic material.
    Spent somewhere over an hour on the sculpt, and then something similar in PS Painting him. No polypaint!
    Just a couple of Color and Multiply layers in PS



    Hope someone finds the result interesting

    Fun experiment on this last one posted Santis.....I bet that if you took a large blending brush to the background, blended the background and then blended some of that background color into some of the hard edges of the figure..say like the hard edge of his skull behind his ear on the shadowed side..in fact all of his shadowed side..you might start to get a really nice atmospheric and painterly feeling going on in the piece....Mixing /blending the colors of the background into the figure creates a sense of unity..colorwise..giving the painting a sense of color harmony and ...oneness....You might even after doing that, take it back into ZBRUSH, and use the LightCap feature on it to push it even further....can get some really interesting results when that is done
    I find in the painter program, that if I make the dimentions of the piece small, then I can make the blending brush big to get those nice big juicy painterly blending strokes....and after I do the background with the big strokes,..I then make the size of the piece big again to recapture the detail and resolution, before I bring it back into ZBRUSH...Not sure if Photoshop works the same way as Painter, don't have it,..but it's probably similar in that regard.
    Anyway...Happy Painting, and Experimenting..

    Glenn

    Adam.Desjardins: Thanks man! It was just a quick experiment, so the background was of low priority, but I still wanted to give it a somewhat painterly feel. But yeah, could sure use some more work

    Glenn: Thank you my friend. I appreciate your tips, this is your area! ;D
    I agree on blending the edges, but it is a gray scale background, so for this piece I guess that color blending wouldn't work. But I get what you are saying
    Will definitely keep it in mind for next time
