I really like all of your work it is amazing, but I have been curious as to what Matcap you have ben using. I really like the color, the way the light bounces off the model and it seems like a comfortable material to work in. I know it is a silly question, but what is it?
I've been busy teaching a course for the past two weeks, so I haven't really been able to do much, though on a road trip I took yesterday I drew sketch on my cellphone (I love that we are at that point in technology) of a fictional creature.
From that I took an hour to quickly block it out from a sphere
And a video showing progress. Its just a sketch, but I might texture him and give him a good render. But it was just to keep loose.
I did a bit of a texture test over my lunch, just to see what I might want to do with this thing.
If any of you were following me on twitter last night, you know that before I went to sleep I decided to start a female from a sphere, well I passed out last night haha, and ended up doing the rest of the model now, I turned it into a Cortana sketch, I have hair sculpted but I'm holding off because I'm not happy with it. But yea a quick little doodle, I decided to take some liberties with here, especially when it came to suit design, because frankly Im grouchy in the evening and who the hell wants to paint lines on a model? So I took the suit design from a few of the titles (I must admit I don't play halo) and the pose was inspired by a piece done by scott fisher (modified heavily though, I dont like using other artists concepts for reference when I don't have to)
About a little less than 2.5 hours from sphere to textured image (mainly because of that damned suit) I might add some stuff and render her out,
the textured version is a bit monkey armed, I fixed it after generating the textured images. Its just a sketch after all
