    Ok so here we go,

    I started out with a simple ZSphere structure and then dynamesh to develop it into the base mesh:



    Next I did a quick Qremesh down to around 20k polys for a nice symmetrical, even topology on the base mesh to help aid with sculpting I have also done some of the facial sculpting whilst it was a dynamesh.



    Now down to the sculpting mainly done using the ClayTubes, ClayBuildUp, Standard, Dam Standard and move brushes along with the Smooth brushes and some masking.



    Next time I will have updated the hands and possibly have teeth and eyes... we will see

    Thats all for now!!

    Cheers Doug, and yeh I do hate when that happens. As far as I am aware it is a issue with size/density of the dynamesh that causes it to happen.
    It is the volume of the thinner parts of the mesh that this seems to effect. Qremesher can have similar issues with thin geometry, curves and loops, especially, can solve this, whereas when I think about it I am not sure how to stop dynamesh from doing the same...
    Anyway thanks for your comment :-)

    One of my last WIP updates b4 the deadline

    So this is just a quick bpr render of the scene so far,
    Since last time:
    • Base and scene has been progressed (Used from a previous personal project to save time) Still needs Adjustments (Long grass/Grain??)
    • Next the texture detail has been done using polypaint and spotlight entirely
    • finer details done on the Puppet Master, Mainly done with various alphas and masking techniques


    Still To go:
    • Final posing of the head and Puppet
    • Lastly composition, lighting & final render ect.

    Not sure if i am able to use Photoshop to compose the final image as it is a strictly Zbrush only Challenge.... Think i will stick with Zbrush Only

    Regards
    JC
