The most ugly but beautiful work of people I have ever seen. Awesome job!
Really great sketchbook. Love to see your stuff.
Yeah, I'm impressed by the quality of the hair on your characters!
Can't wait to see the next bunch of images
Three more - more to come
Great work, really like all of them.
Nice sculpts! Is it just me or does the last one (lizard looking guy) look like Shaun White?

I would like to ask how to make such realistic hair? Hope to give a detailed tutorial . Thank you very much!!

Your sculpts and Fibremesh are awesome.
How do you get you hair and eyebrows to look so good.
Could you share your Fibremesh workflow with us.
Thank you so much, I have been enjoying your work too for quite a while!

except for the magnet. I rarely use the same settings twice, or
save them, I tweak till i find something I'm happy with.
And to be perfectly honest, right now I don't want to reveal all
my secrets. I hope I'm not being too much of a dick, but I worked
really long and hard on the hair-problem, and anything short of a
real video tutorial would feel inadequate to me. Sharing my exact
settings would just mean that a lot of people would have the same
hair, and I dont want that.
Still, maybe Ill do that video in the future, but don't hold your breath,
right now I want to do more quick, crazy sketches, without much
detail, but with quick hair, before moving on to full figures,
which are wip. And at some point, every one of those suckers will
be polypainted, filled with a Skinmaterial and lighted with
lightcap, but I'll have to learn some stuff there too.
I'll keep it ZBrush only. I thought quite a bit about personality
traits, which helped to give character to the sculpt, and I'll
write about them too, then.
Someone I know wants a black-and-white coffe-table book, which is
ridiculous, because these are only studies, but I'll do that, and
share that too, maybe even the pdf, when I'm done. Two opposing
pages per character, like shown.
Btw, I only have a bamboo for 50 euro, not an Intuous or Cintiq.
I'm really curious to experience Zbrush with a more sensitive
tablet. Seeing my images in this context, I realize that the earlier
renders work better, in part because the document-to-head ratio is
bigger. That way, the forms read better, and all the shortcomings
of the detailing pass are not as noticeable. I recommend to zoom
out with Ctrl-Mousewheel, to see more of every head.

Thanks for the reply. I totally understand trade secrets and all.
Good luck with you Zbrush journey.
Can't wait to see you coffee book.
Thanks for your understanding. At SOME Point in the Future, I'll say more, in this thread, but right now, the newness of it all is just to big, you know?
