    Default Etcher_Sketcher

    Hello everyone!

    I have been ZBrushing for nearly one year now and decided to post some WIPs. I’m still having a hard time trying to keep up and read the constant flow of great advice and artwork that this community is bringing forward (already spent countless hours in the ZBrush archives). So, a big thanks to the ZBrush community!

    Anyway, I followed the advice of studying traditional sculpts on a regular basis to improve skills. I copied a sculpt of a Dante bust. After finishing the copy, I removed hat and clothes to further study the anatomy. The third set of images show where I am now: studying the muscles of the head and underlying skeleton. I will eventually use this set of sculpts to exercise my polypaint and retopo.

    I mostly used the standard, smooth, clay tubes and rasp (http://www.zbrushcentral.com/zbc/sho...=ryankingslien) brushes. It’s been only a few weeks since I got my Wacom: these images where totally done using my laptop’s touchpad. I wish I’d gotten the Wacom sooner … .

    The images are ZBrush renders, adjusted in Photoshop. I used the lens distortion effect explained by Nerveink (http://www.zbrushcentral.com/zbc/sho...light=nerveink).

    It's very obvious how new I am to ZBrushCentral. This thread should be in the main forum, I immediately notified the webmaster.

    Please accept my apologies for this inconvenience.

    Default What?

    What!?! This isn't Statue Marble Man!!! Excellent sculpt, nonetheless. Still would've been an excellent piece for an Action Hero!

    scottleroc: thanks for the encouragement, here's a small update on the écorché !

    Gohanf22: thanks for subscribing, hope you're feeling better! !

    threetails: thank you so much for checking out my sketchbook, and for the nice comments. Yep I'm planning to take the buildovers very far, cause I still got a lot to learn!

    mutte696: Hey there, thanks for checkin' out my works! More to come soon! !

    Adrien: Thank you so much for stopping by and for the nice comment, Adrien!

    Small update:

    I just did a partial remesh on the muscle study: I'm gonna split the sculpt into three parts: Head/ears/neck. This way I'll be able to put in some more detail and hopefully get a clean polypaint. I hate retopo !

    So, many thanks everybody, see ya! !
