    Well, after all the practising and effort, I think this picture marks my transition from newbie to not-so-newbie. I knew how I wanted it to look, and the end result is pretty close to what I aimed for. That's very exciting for me. Thanks for looking.

    Nice one Moochie! I think anyone would be proud of a head model like that one mate. I'm giving you 5 stars for two reasons:

    1- I like the model, texturing and lighting
    2- You've passes a major hurdle (that I've still to pass myself).

    I could probably say that also coz I'm in a good mood lol. I'm waiting the next one now

    Thanks everyone! Render was in C4D .. I wanted to see if it could cope with a ZB-sized model. This was 700k polys, and it was a breeze. Hair was hand painted in Paintshop Pro using vectors. Will probably treat myself to a copy of Shave & a Haircut for Christmas.

    Sorry for the delay in getting the next Newbie Challenge up. I've had this strange, restless feeling for the past few weeks .. I knew I was ready to take the next step in ZB and start producing better work, but I guess I was scared that I might fail, and everything kinda got paralysed. Stoopid, huh? I know it's just a picture, and nothing compared with the truly talented stuff that gets posted here every day but, for me, it is truly cathartic.

    Nah not stupid at all mate, in fact I've been going through something similar for a week or two now. (combined with a teething 6 1/2 month old son ) So I know exactly where your coming from. But you've got to admit it's worth it when you pass to another stage each time eh?

    Hey Moochie,

    Never fear failure, it tends to make one set one's goals to high to assure failure so one can say...see I told you or it assures you aspire to perfection which of course you can never reach and makes it easier to quit or have excuses.

    Instead, revel in it, the more you "fail" the more you learn. The more you fail and learn (overcome) the more power you have over that evil little inner critic whose voice can drown out atom bombs. So step out, wear that rubber suit in case a few rotten tomatoes head your way and you forget to duck, and give the world a great big wet raspberry while holding your head high. And most of all believe in yourself and what you have accomplished so far because in the end that is all that matters.

    I am glad you took the leap.....so go ahead and breathe now!
