It's been a while since I posted anything on here, I've been super busy.. Super busy learning Zbrush that is!! I've been taking Cesar Dacol jr.'s Master class in Creature design and here is what I've accomplished so far.
first we experimented with shapes and forms, I chose this design from many.
from the silhouette I made a few tweaks, notably the feet and wings.
then added some underlying skeletal and muscular form.
I also made a few experiment sheets of possible faces, I chose #28.
Futher changes were made to the face afterwards.
after the first Crit session I had made some changes to posture, wing structure and some more musculature.
Next came compression wrinkles, skin directionality and surface texturing.
Polypainting was a treat, I decided to go with natural greens and bright colours as seen in plumage of birds, instead of dark sinister colours as is all the rage.
thus changing the whole feel of the character into being something somewhat more of a wild creature than a demon of the darkness.
I hope you've enjoyed my WIP of a creature. please let me know your thoughts.
