    Default Intervain's Sketchbook

    Hi everyone

    I've decided to make 1 thread for all my future WIPs instead of starting a new one every time

    Here's my current ongoing project - still a bit to go till the end. It's a little tribute to Richard Macdonald, one of my fav sculptors. I don't mean it as an exact copy of his sculpture since I only have 1 side image of it available and most of what I do is guesswork...
    It's more of an exercise + an experiment in matcaps as well - I want a bronze look with some tool marks visible in it rather than a polished surface so I started making all the bumps and stuff on him [in case you were wondering lol]

    I hope you'll like it:

    Ooh. This turned out really good. Would this be bronze sculpted (I don't think they usually do that) or bronze cast of a wax mold of a clay sculpt? I think that would determine the type of tool marks that would work best. I think you could still add a few more fabric wrinkles push the tensed tendons in the forearm. And other minor touches.

    I predict a top row for this thread, odd feeling.

    Looking ace, I love the theme of the piece, different to what we normally see. Altho, I feel for the guy, he must have toes of steel to perch on the corner of the cube like that
    If I were to be anal, i'd say the ball on his foot looks as if it wouldn't balance there, and would roll down the curve of the foot, but i assume that's just me.
    Keep it up, looking forward to updates.

    Erklaerbar - thank you!

    womball - thanks! I don't want too many wrinkles on the cloth - for one thing the original sculpture has very few and I also referenced a real ballet dancer and surprisingly those thights are so fitting they really have only a few creases on them... I will add a bit more to the body still

    krishki - thanks!

    Aumakua - thank you!

    Sebcesoir - thanks very much! Means a lot coming from you!

    skulll_monster - does that mean you'll join us?! there's still time!

    Antropus - AWWW Kris - I DO love you not as fast as yourself but I'll try to post more soon

    abe_Tamazir - cheers! Glad you like it!

    DarthWayne - thank you!

    gookle - thanks

    NoirQ -something different than the usual zbrushing is what I wanted so thanks LOL I agree but like I've said it is based on someone else's concept hehe...
