Just a little update. This probably won't be the final pose, but I wanted to start testing anyways.
Dom War V - Trianna - Goddess of Rage
"There is no tomorrow!"
Skadalilama -Oh man, when I read that the first time my brain almost exploded from trying to imagine the sheer awesomeness of that. Ha ha. I think I might an alternate version like that....Chuck Norris in a bikini with a machine gun?....
womball - Thanks! I like making things that are more towards the whimsical side. I am workign on some stuff that is more towards the "realistic" side just because I think it would really help my portfolio, and it also presents a different set of challenges.
Clintus Maximus - Gracias!
stefanobernardi - Awesome idea! That actually makes me want to change this piece to be something that I just keep adding on to. Like turning it in to a very large diorama of sorts. then I could keep adding on more levels of pure awesome!
/idkfa - Excellent point!
I took a little break form my normal cartoony stuff to do some "realistic" fantasy stuff. I started out with the superaveragemale.ztl, messing around with ZBrush 4, started to sculpt a little and got carried away, so I am going with the flow now. I think I am headed to a troll type of character, like a Scandinavian-fairytale type of troll. Y'know, the scary mo-fo's that eat children and puppies, not the modern trolls who only seem to pick on invincible elves and rangers....
Anybody have ideas and where to head next with this? I'm kinda running low on idea juice.
zber2 - Yeah, I saw that site a while back. I haven't been there in a while so thanks for the reminder! Lots of great stuff there.
Here's another 'lil update. I still want to add things like earrings and a bone club or something. Then I think I'll be ready to start adding details 'n stuff.
very nice sculpt! i like the design,i look forward to see the club,the details and the textured final pic.
which color u will add? greenish? or brownish?
lemonnado - Glad you like it! I am still in the process of doing more to it. I just wanted to take a little break from it, though. I have some big plans for the Elepharkank!
HUN-Firebat - Thanks! If I color it, I was thinking of a cooler palette of colors, like desaturated purples and grey.
Here's another update. I think I am almost done with the character itself, but now I am going to pose him and maybe make a little pedestal thingy for him to go on.
I also made a few short videos of me sculpting that I will upload to Vimeo when I get the chance.
Here are a couple of vids. The first is a capture of me sculpting a 'lil bit. It also contains a bunch of my mistakes and exploratory modeling so it isn't perfect. I wish I had some cool music to play with it, so if you want to, make sure you play your favorite song while listening to it
This second video is just a turnaround of the final sculpture.
.....I hope this video embedding works, I'm not very good at this kinda stuffs.
