    So far so good. You have some striations on the upper back that shouldn't be there. Also, her triceps don't seems to be flowing correctly.,

    Drago's done very well. My type of sculpting : ) Did you design it yourself or are you basing it off some reference materials?

I did another test with one of my old models without any crashes. Actually the reason for the crashes of my previous tests was my scene. I had a lot of intersecting objects - maybe Keyshot didn't like this:

  • Godless Dog
    39 Minutes Ago
    Nice, the animals you sculpt look so realistic. I saw you mention you're using Keyshot trial version. I got a couple quick questions regarding Keyshot - Are renders done in Keyshot significantly better than ZBrush's own renderer? - Is it difficult...

Hey dog, you best ask Mealea, Lucifer or Gutalin for any more details. I didn't take their technique as far as they did. It's been a while since I used but I think it went something like this. The basics are: *Create UV map: PUVAUV or GUV tiles. Each gives a different UV tiling *Polygroups: Autogroups with UV *Divide: Once or more. If you want to keep the shape with sharp edges turn off SMT *Grouploops: Now you got a whole bunch of polygroups you can play around with. I'm sure from there you can figure out all kinds of techniques to manipulate the polygroups. Like this , same basic technique: But like I said if you want details ask the masters .

  • Godless Dog
    57 Minutes Ago
    Ah I gotcha. That's a pretty cool way to create these interesting polygroups on your model. Thanks! I can think of some nifty applications, for example in creation of: - armor pieces - scales - panels - etc Did you mean talk to these masters...

Leandro benigno sketchbook
Hi there! i’ m Leandro Benigno, I’m half a Brazilian half Portuguese 3D artist, digital sculptor and illustrator, who has passion in doing the most weird and bizarre stuff. When I was 6 or 7 years old I remember going to the video store and seeing the “Akira” movie poster and asking my mom to rent it. Maybe she still regrets that a lot! After what I had seen from “Akira”, I could never be the same person again. From that moment on, I knew exactly what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. The details, characters, the city, the story, the graphics and the action, it all grabbed me pretty hard. I was a sensitive kid with so much information on my mind, someone who was always looking for graphic ways to express myself with the most amounts of details possible. I decided to start studying 3d and character design in 2010. Using Zbrush and seeing all the possibilities it could give me, simply drove me crazy. Adding small details in my characters is something that helps telling where they come from, what they have been through their lives and what they represent in that world, and this is something I ***769;m very fond of. Even if you are creating just a piece of rock, it has to have its own history, and the spectator has to notice that. During my career I have had some works which I am proud of, like working for Iron Studios, a Brazilian marvel licensed company that produces Marvel action figures. I worked on the X-men and Captain America 2 The Winter Soldier projects, sculpting Juggernaut and Falcon characters. Also I have worked for 2 years as product designer for P&G, www.leandrobenigno.com

The Dancer - Tribute to Ballet
I did this sculpt as an anatomy study of a body in movement. I had this idea quite a while ago. When I was still doing character animation, I did a sequence of one of the best ballet dancer's in my opinion. I liked his style so much that I had to do this sculpt and render. Let me know what you think.
