    Default Spimmy's Book of Sketches

    Well I have finally decided to start a ZBrush Sketchbook, although I haven't finished my funky assassin character, which I will try to do.

    So I have started work on a Dragonball character: Krilin. Still early days, just trying to get the proportions and base features sorted out first, still working on that, nearly there hopefully.

    His hands need alot of work for sure

    Hey spimmy, great to see new stuff from you.

    I´ve never watched Dragonball so I don´t know the original Krilin
    but looks like a good start to me.
    Hope to see a new upate of the assasin character, too.

    Default DragonBall: Krilin (WIP)

    Hey thanks Moni, been so busy at work so haven't really had the chance to get back into ZBrush , but I'm trying to do some when I can. Great to see you getting a sketch book up and going!! Pretty awesome

    Well I have worked a little bit more on Krilin, added his shirt, teeth, proportioned his hands, feet, body and head (everything really ). I pushed his legs backand further out to give him more dramatic posture. Anyway hopefully he looks better than before.

    Default DragonBall: Krilin (WIP)

    I have now started to work in some creases in Krilins trousers, and added a base colour with a different material for the clothes (I think I made the clothes too red though, so will change that so it is more Orange).

    I also decided it would be cool if the dragonball was on the ground in beded in the sand, and the base would be a desert scene with cartoon sand blowing across. I am also thinking of getting smoke coming from the fists as he charges up. But these are just thoughts at the moment .

    Default Funky Assassin (WIP)

    Thanks Captain Sensible, it's difficult to get artwork done at home, and thought having a sketchbook will help encourage me to do so. Unfortunately I seem to end up with WIP's .

    So here is my other work in progress "The Funky Assassin" I thought it best to add it to my Sketchbook rather than having a separate thread for him. I will try my best to get these 2 works in progress done before working on anything else

    I agree. Sketchbooks are a good idea. They are good for the artist who owns them and good for everyone else who views them cos they can see all your stuff at once. Also helps to declutter the main forum.

    Nice start on the funky assassin. My only crit would be that he seems to have an extra joint in his thumb.

    Cool thanks Captain for pointing the thumb out, will definately fix that!

    Anyways here is an update on Krilin, slowly (very slowly) getting there!!

    Trying to get a facial expression and adding the main features on him.

    Default Updates on Krilin and Funky Assassin (WIP)

    Thanks Moni, glad you liked the facial expression . Yeah, I still want to finish the Funky Assassin, but I see him more of something I can train on and develop from I guess .

    Thanks OlirO, I hope I finish him too .

    Anyway, I continued working on Krilin's head adding abit more details and cleaning up places that looked wrong, so here he is now. Unfortunately my machine doesn't have enough RAM to go any higher, so want to know what the best way of getting more polys in the head without losing the lower subd levels please?

    I also worked a little bit on the funky assassin, mainly adding some texture to his head but also worked on his mouth opening and cleaning up parts that weren't right, haven't worked on the hand yet though.

    Default Funky Assassin (WIP)

    Well here is a small update on the Funky Assassin, looking at a facial expression for him. I came up with this, so hopefully it looks cool:

    I am hopefully going to get the mouth done and have his teeth biting into the cigar. I am also redoing his hair making them larger strands, which I think will look nicer.

    As for Krilin I am going to change him from a full body to a torso bust model so that I can free up some polys to add more smoother details to his face.

    Default Funky Assassin (WIP)

    I have done a quick paint over to see what clothes and may be accessories I could add. Thought a Bandana would be cool on him, or maybe not. But I always wanted him to wear a turtle neck sweater

    Nice paint over. I think the bandana might work better if he had a pony tail too. Or maybe I just have a kind of hell's angel in mind.
