Glad it was helpful, so here we are, Finished texturing & shading. This is the first time I'm using vray hair material and it works pretty cool (much better than hair and fur's ****ty shader!) and I changed my skin shader a little bit and I guess it works better now, cheers.

quickie heads!
Nothing too exciting to post this time, just a bunch of heads. I decided I should bust out some quick bust practice, this being the result. I sure needed it -- on the first try it took me *ages* to nail good proportions, whereas getting the third head to look good was almost painless. 1. This one started out as a riff on the frazzetta/shiflett bros barbarian. But in the end his eyes didn't look barbaric enough, so I gave him a 1930s haircut instead. Kinda reminds me of blaskowitz from wolfenstein now. Took me about 3 hours all told. 2. Girls are always tough because the forms and plane changes are so subtle. I used photos of a model called ryonen as a guide, some resemblance is there I think. She has a really interesting face. Sculpting took the better part of a day, as I was again struggling with fitting forms together. 3. This last one is the most 'generic'. Basically it was just to check whether I've learned anything with the previous two sculpts. Turns out I might have -- it took by far the least time to do, and was practically struggle-free. Too bad he's so boring, even with an iffy attemt at a patrick bateman haircut. Finally, I'm also including two more shots of that last nude I did, direct from zbrush this time, as I felt the vray renders softened the details too much. Hey, I didn't sculpt them for nothing!

  • nebular

    I know this technique but it's really time consuming, but gives best result. Have you tried decresing the imbed slider down to 1-3? Clay tubes won't build up the form so much. Thanks

BPR skin shader - tutorial WIP
Hey guys! Whats going on! I know its been a while since my last post but in all honesty I haven't done anything worth showing, I've been doing a lot of research and testing for my new tutorial and I think is time to share the progress and see if you guys would be interested to see it happening???... So here it is: I have been trying to create a decent and versatile skin material for ZBrush that can be rendered in a SINGLE pass using zbrush BPR render. Here are some WIPs from last week using the very nice INFINITE - REALITIES, 3D head scan by Lee Perry-Smith model for testing and rendered withZbrush BPR in a single pass! So my idea with the skin shader is that it is not based on any MatCap so that it reacts well to different lighting set ups. here are some tests, all BPR single pass without leaving ZBrush. This is another test I did to fake the subsurface scattering effect a bit more accurate (the only compositting bit from this one is the use of the Zdepth pass) I hope you guys like it! I will be posting updates for the tutorial on my facebook page.

Hey~ I'm glad you like my work~ I'm actually recording a couple timelapse videos to do a breakdown of what I do to give some idea of how I get the details I do but I always record a bad design. Rather than posting everything I do like I used to I'm being a little picky now and only showing the ones I think are good (and sometimes the best of the bad in the case of mens rings for now) I'll see if I can manage one that I don't feel is too bad and will post it here~ Also here is what I've done for mens rings~ Still not completely happy but I need to pick 2 out in the end after I'm done my designs. Excuse the small size, I'm not totally ready to show em off but I figured I should post something~
