    Default MightyReg's SketchBook

    Hi everyone, I am finally starting my own sketchbook! Even if I am still a beginner (started around November to learn) , I think this is the best way to have critics and help so I can become better. I will soon post pictures of my firsts sculpts.

    Default First Sculpt

    Okay so here I start, this model is the very first sculpt I did with the Zbrush in November 2009. I already posted it before on this forum but I tought I would repost it on my sketchbook since I think it wasn't bad at all for a first try.
    With this model I tried many different fonctions to help me build my model, such as ZSpheres, masking, alphas, polypaint and the Transpose tool. I then exported it to Maya where I rendered it with a displacement map, as well as a normal and cavity map. This creature is a boss from the video game ''Super Metroid'', I tought it would be a nice first subject because of it's strange anatomy and also because I like a lot that game. C&C are welcome.

    Sweet! That boss battle was epic too, at least in Super Metroid.

    Default Abominable Snowman WIP

    Hey thanks for the comments invertedNormal and womball, appreciated!

    So I started about a week ago working on my 3rd sculpt with Zbrush, it's an Abominable Snowman that I am doing for a sculpting challenge at 3DTotal. Right now I did 3 hours on him (we have 10 hrs max for our sculpts) and would like to have your toughts on him so I can continue in the right direction.

    6.5 hours on my Yeti. Still have to cover the hands/feet with the fur and pose the fingers, as well as refining certain things.

    Finished my Abominable Snowman this weekend, here is what the final looks like. Learned a lot of things from that sculpt. I am really planning to buy a tablet and pen because I feel very slow with my mouse.
    Of course critics and comments are welcome.

    Default Earth God

    Hehe thanks Fernando for the comment on my first creature

    Well I started about a week ago a new entry for 3DTotal challenge `''Gift to the Gods''. what I will be doing is a Earth God (you know, like the Earth element). I want him to look neutral : not good but not evil.

    Anyway here's where I am, just tell me if you see something that seems wrong.
    After that I will sculpt the equipment (as you can see in the sketch)

    Darukin, southparx: Thanks! I am pretty happy with the realistic result too, I really encourage you to go see the realistic rendering thread by ISK-86 if you work on Maya, it's not very long to do and easy to understand.
    Well now I return to my other project, I'l post an update soon.
