    Default Max's sketchbook stuff

    Pigchef-thumb.jpg
    I decided to start a sketchbook thread, and so here it begins with a wip of the Pigchef, a little sketch I've done that I just couldn't resist to sculpt in Zbrush, and since Pigs are very intuitive symbols of abundance and prosperity I thought I post it for the new year.
    Happy New Year everyone.

    Thanks. According to my daughter that's snot, and I agree.
    The drawing is called "the secret ingredient" and it wants to illustrate the danger of complaining at a restaurant before you finish eating.

    Ah hah, I see it a tiny bit on his nose in the sketch (I think). Great form

    More Pigchef WIP, I worked on the posing, to make him more like the original sketch. I then just grabbed a few renders and alphas and composited them in PS. Next it's more sculpting throughout, then detailing, I probably want more props in the scene also, and I may even swap the snot for a foot or some other human chunk actually, just an idea. Then when all this is done it'll be polypainted.

    Thanks Ares and Moni, here's an update, I worked on the proportions, more work on the pose again, and then some sculpting, a start on the face and quite some work on the trousers.

    so here is what i've had written if i wouldn't have read what you've written:
    hey max, i really like your sculpt but i'm not really sure about
    the detail. wouldn't it be cool to see this schwein with some extra details
    on his body ?

    as i read what you've written, i would say:
    yeah, max. can't wait anylonger i really thought about that detailing thing and it would be great to see the schwein with some cool details.
    i think it will look superb with the right details on it.

    since your post 2weeks ago i'm waiting for the details on the body

    greetz.

    Al, you're absolutely right, I used the time I had to work on the body ratio, tweaking the pose again, all that preparatory kind of work until I was completely happy. Then I brought in the foot and now time to detail has finally come. I'll make a mess of him. Promise.

    Not into gore, but I like this last one. Well sculpted.

    Hi Derek, thanks, I wouldn't consider myself into gore either but can't help noticing that I lined up here two characters holding bodyparts.
    There must be some subconscious reason I've done that.
