Cool! hope you post a photo of the print once it is done.

Thanks a lot guys ! and thanks pixo for the top row !
i’ll update the thread once i ve got new on the print but unfortunatly it won’t be until a couple of month.

i’m preparing a couple of closeup and “tips” on how i worked on some parts.

should be up soon :wink:

wow!! amazing work :slight_smile:

Impressive! The horse anatomy is perfect!

Epic piece, hats off to you! Can’t wait for the 3d print!

great sculpt dude, everything is just spot on!

Great work however you have this nice dynamic poise horse but no facial expression on the rider. How comes?

This is quite possibly the best sculpt I’ve ever seen on ZBC. The traditional style and dynamic pose is astounding. You truly have a gift.

perfect…good job

thanks a lot again for the warm comments !

thanks, i was aiming for a classical approach to the sculpt, faces are usually pretty neutral or at least don’t have extreme expressions. and the rider is not charging or talking.
he is pretty calm and rested at this moment, not in battle mode.

so now i little more in depht mini wip.
i first started to work on the horse, cause that was something i wasn’t confortable with, and what’s better than start from the zbrush dog and a lot of dynameshing later here comes the horse.
i tried different pose and various test to get to the final result
for the fine fur i simply used the penshadow brush, i found that brush really efficient to get nice short hair like this and if you change the stroke type, you either get a fine line to make precise hair like on the head or easy hair for larger areas using the spray.

the cushioning was done with noisemaker and some inflat deformation tool
for the pose, the mannequin was pretty usefull to make various test with having to spend too much time reposing what i already had sculpted
some details were sculpted and then used as an alpha like medusa’s face, saved me a lot of poly on an already pretty heavy file
and that’s pretty much it nothing too fancy

thanks for viewing !
