    Default Watch me work.

    I'm often asked to do a tutioral Of how I created an image that I have posted. The problem is with the way I work I'll lose stuff or basically don't remember what I did. So I thought that I would start a thread as I 'm about to start a new project, and post work in progress images as I go along before I lose them so here goes

    hi there, thank you....this will be a precious thread.....i'm gonna start with the questions....you'll probably get about a million of them anyways ... i'm wondering if the head is a base mesh from another sw or if you modelled it from zspheres....? it's a lovely clean mesh, especially the ears, which on the base models for example from xsi, are really hideous...so.....sorry for babbling....good luck with this WIP and thanx again for sharing, mm!

    Default Boy this was a mistake

    This is really screwing up my work flow and slowing me down I sorry that I started this. Oh well . I find it important when sculpting to use just one light and no ambient light and I find it really important to move that light around to see the forms on your sculpt under diff lighting conditions. This is already starting to be asymetrical also something that I think is important to look real.
    More moving Zadding and zsubbing to create forms.
    At this point I quickly threw in some basic forms to see it with eyes and teeth . They are just placeholders at the moment I just thought it was important at this point to see a representation of them

    Ok had dinner fed my dog took him out to do his business and worked on this a bit more. I was trying to figure out where I was going with this. Put some teeth from my old skull model and an old frankenstein coat model on him did a quick renderand got this. Went back to make some changes and it crashed so I think I'll stop for tonight. I won't be able to work on this much tomorrow and have a busy week ahead but I'll try and make some progress and keep posting. thanks for looking

    Monstermaker,

    I'll post the link in a second but....you have the awesome Pixolator script....that does thumbnails of your session....I am sure you also save often. ZTimelapse

    So it's not important that you remember everything you did or why you did it. We can learn from what it is you do remember after the fact......don't interrupt you process....just go back......you will find you learn as much about yourself and how you do things as we do from you.

    Michelangelo never woulda finished David if someone questioned his every move so don't do that to yourself.....ask the questions later....shrug or reply....we will appreciate any tidbit and will thoroughly understand if it hinders you and your willingness to help doesn't quite work with how you work......well at least I would.....hahahaha. I couldn't tell you why I zigged instead of zagged ...I just did. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't.....but we all need to travel that road ourselves anyway.

    I appreciate the fact you desired to.
    I appreciate the distraction it creates.

    I am more than happy to just be a witness to your immense talent here at zb anything else is triple icing on an already tasty cake.
