hehe, the same period for sure Thanks for looking! Made a few small refinements to the texture in SP and some new rends against a lighter bg because I wasn't happy with the previous version. Thought I'd post a couple images here too.

Thanks everyone for your constant support over the years and kind words. I finished my quick October studies that really focused on texturing and testing Marmoset Toolbag's new skin shader but I thought I'd share them here too, since the modeling was done in Zbrush. The hair cards were placed using IMM curve brush from Ben Hale.

    So perfect! as always, clothes are so realistic , Mrs Magdalena you make me cry How do you proceed for wearing your models? You draw a mask on the character and then press extract for a new subtool? or modeling them in maya and sculpt in Zbrush...

Happy Holidays!
Here's a bit of Christmas Fun and a study after Layendecker. I wasn't trying to copy his image faithfully, but rather capture the spirit of it so it's not exact by any means and I added some things to the scene too ... It was a good exercise. Happy Holidays folks.

thanks again folks. I wanted the eyes to feel murky and foggy and dark, I'm glad it works. nagulov - very simple setup. 2 meshes, with turbosmooth on. The outer one is just a clear shader with high gloss and reflectivity, the inner one has the map shown below on it plugged in to the SSS shader

zgoncu - thanks boozy floozie - thanks a lot. I'm not really the best person to ask about this, since I begin most of the clothing outside zbrush and just refine it with sculpting. I find, a proper base mesh to be crucial. I think it's still possible to get a nice result starting from dynamesh or zspheres but obviously, not for further texturing or animation. Pablander - thanks very much I think once u comment u're subscribed Seems to work that way for me and any of the threads I visited. psylife - cheers! yeah there's sth off about the arms, though I'd say the upper ones. I re sculpted them so many times that I think I lost sth in the process for sure. About the calves, well she's got high heels on, which change the shape of the leg, and the woman I used as refs had prominent calf. I kinda liked it Thnx for taking the time to comment here's a quick sketch from yesterday for a change, cheers!

Intervain - sketchbook
Hi everyone. I haven't posted here for way too long. Time to start a sketchbook I think Here's a few models I worked on lately in my spare time: Death of the endless - a bit of fanart, based on Neil Gaiman's character [rendered in vray] Sherlock - another bit of fan art, just some fun Finall, current WIP - that's what this thread is for, Summer dress - I started her this week... early days, lots to be done cheers.

    Missing a few images? LOoks great what you have. LOve how your using textures to get extra detail looks fantastic in Vray. I guess that is better than mental ray now? I've been out of the loop. I'm Fascinated by the difference in folding for materials too.
