    Nice manimal, reminds me of The Island of Dr. Moreau which I caught part of a couple weeks ago.

    Default Now a little more demonic

    A little tighter wrinkles and a QUICK PS paint over to add the color, eyes and horns. I like to work in a non linear fashion when designing, that's why I throw these temp photoshop paint overs on. Just to get an idea what this thing will look like when I add the horns and texture later. More to come tomorrow.

    That's all for now (trying to prevent carpal tunnel)

    Default First peek in XSI

    A first look in XSI. There is absolutely no high frequency detail yet, still working on form and the like. I like to go back and forth between XSI, PS and Zbrush, doing this give me a fresh perspective during the design process.

    Thanks all,
    There is a little "Devils Rain" (the Ernest Borgnine movie) and "Island of Dr Moreau" in him for sure. Those great make ups still infulence my design work to this day.

    I had no t seen the make up in years so when you mentioned it I had to look it up.

    Default Sundays additions WIP

    I did not get that much done today, but I did get to help out a new Zbrusher (Good hanging out with you Kerry!).

    I got a little detail work done on the face. This render is from XSI, I generate displacement maps as I go just and render in XSI to see how the detail is transferring. This also gives me a new "eye" on the sculpt.

    This is just a START to the details and it has no real texture maps yet. I just used a generic map that I have to add some color to the Sub Surface shader.

    I hope to work more on it this week but I have to get a presentation ready for Siggraph this is more fun. It may be a couple of weeks before I update
