so I haven't posted in a very long time, work has had me very busy. So I figured I sculpt something to make me laugh. Figured it might make you chuckle a bit too, nothing fancy just a short sculpt for the night to rest

Enter the nature
Hi everyone, "Enter the nature" is my new personal project. This includes "speed" work of mine, for my upcoming Youtube channel. I want to share with you the first image of the project. This frog was a test run for myself. To see how fast i can be (from sculpt to final image) Everything was done in Zbrush (Sculpt - Texture - Pose - Render) and Photoshop for comp. work. #1 Frog: 3 1/2h - Sculpting (1 1/2h +-) - Texturing ( 30 mins +-) - Comp. work in Photoshop (1 1/2h +-) Higher Resolution: http://www.artstation.com/artwork/enter-the-nature-1-frog http://leifart.artstation.com/portfolio/enter-the-nature-1-frog http://leifart.deviantart.com/art/Enter-the-nature-1-Frog-489491058 So i hope you like it, thanks for watching and stay tuned Best regards Leif

Godless Dog: No worries. nimajneb : Thanks for the info. I only use Pinch to taper the fibers together so I won't have to do any grooming in Maya when I export the curves out. That being said, I've never had any problems at render time in Zbrush. Observe, bulge-free hair :

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 .

Assignment #3: Enviornment Assset
For our most recent assignment in class we had to sculpt some sort of environment asset. I chose to do a rotted grave stone, though I didn't get to really finish it. I ran out of time, and the grave stone I chose to do was actually pretty hard to do, so it needs another like 4 hours on it. Here's the reference: And here's the result: It was really hard to do, I wish I could have lightened it up a little bit, and maybe added some more noise? I don't know, I was pretty impressed with myself on the shawl though, because I was looking at it at first and I was just thinking there's no way I'm going to be able to do this. Overall I think if I could've given it a little bit more time, but I'm happy with the result.

    Nice work. Great progress. The one thing I learned from sculpting cloth is that you should try to mimic the crevises caused by gravity and emulate how the ripples overlap one another. I often would zremesh and pull the **** out of cloth when I was...

Here are the little break down of "Attack On Titan" piece. This is just a fan art I made before the live action movie announced. I think some of you guys may seen the article that saying this is official art but just so you know this is not official art. First image is the screenshot of Zbrush sculpting with polypaint. Second one is the raw render image rendered with Vray . Buildings and the naked guy are just place holder. Check out the full break down on here (Its all written in Japanese though...)

bolovorix: Thanks a lot ;D Prelodius belongs to a noble society that worked as peacemakers between worlds, in one travel he got infected by a virus, which started a metamorphosis in his body, turning him into a hideous creature, he was able to stop the virus by gaining mental control of his body. Although the virus moved to the extremities and in order to survive he managed to create 2 mouths in his hands. so it could feed from souls and antimatter. And so he continued through the rest of his days, carrying this "curse" because if the virus was exterminated so would he.

    Amazin work Glauco. You set the texturing level really high. My only crit would be that you lost some of the stylized feel of Dishonored but still, a blast to look at.

    All within your power. You'll get there. The Texture might have added another 15 mins plus 15 for setting up the render. Think about things as basic shapes or parts on there own. There are lots of amazing tutorials out there.
