DMAN3D - Sketchbook, WIPS and Evolution

Hello all. Thought I might post some of my doodles, experiments and efforts.
I am using ZB mainly in a learning capacity. I hope to integrate it into our
production pipeline at work. In the meantime just having fun and learning.
I wish I could say these were all done in an instant but the truth is I have been using ZB for a very long time and made nothing but utter crap (not that
this stuff is great).

These are recent and I wanted to start a dump threat to get some input and
have a central place to hopefully monitor my own progress.

Cheers

cool pieces Dman, I love the “Doodles” (the one on the right in particular). the zskull and the killer shrimp are also cool. no crits here, just dropping in to say cool work.

Thanks Fidget, appreciate it. Tough surrounded by the rediculously amazing work posted here.

Anywho here is a spin on a Ithorian. Hope SW purists will forgive me for taking
some liberties. Used to play SWG, had an Ithorian just thought I would try it
out. About 1.5 hours.

Cheers,

Wonderful sketchpad here… I really like the lobster looking creature. Great works! I’ll be keeping an eye on this thread! :cool:

Hey thanks SolidSnakexxx, appreciate it. :+1:

Here another w.i.p. from tonights session. Thought I would give a Sullustan
a whack. Had him poly painted but ZB ate it at one point. No biggie just
as easy to do a second time. See if I can get to it in the next day or two
little nutty at work atm.

Update to the Sallustan WIP. Polypainting and detailing.
The skin is a bit human but thought I would do this first.
Will probably to a mod to the paint job to give hime more
“alien” tones. Fun anyway. Or something else might grab my
attention. Who knows!:smiley:

Cheers

Now im wanting to see a whole bunch of Starwars creatuers. Paticularly a good tuskan raider…now that would be cool.

Hey Dman3d! Great sketchbook worx! Definitely making great progress! Wonderfull sculpts and awesome polypaint! :+1: ! Lookin’ forward to seeing more!

Thanks Etcher, gonna try to keep at it.

I think this might be the last of fiddling with the sullustan model.
Try to move on to off the top of the head modelling.
Did not finish all the details on the head gear but the model has served
it purpose. Got that artistic A.D.D kicking in.

bit. Just following my stylus around letting the left hand do its thing.

Im interested to see where it goes.

Hi Dman3d! Again, great updates. The Sullustan came out really good imo. The new one is looking great! :+1: !

Thanks Etcher, trying to keep up the pace.
Here is where the demon skull above is going. Kinda at a pause to sort
out where Im going from here. Trying to get all my thoughts and nightmares
in one spot so to speak.

I want to get the horns more toward a natural look, like goat horns or the like
in terms of the surface texture. Err at least I think so.:slight_smile:

cheers,

woah, man, this is some really cool stuff!
keep it up!

and i like the presentation-style. :+1:

I heart the shrimp. Amazing!

Thanks guys. Here is a minor update. (added the tongue)
Probably wont post anymore until its done or it beats me.

Going to get started on detailing and trying to figure out what it is.

Cheers,

Okay, I think this might be it. At least for now. I learned a bit out of this one.
Finally started getting some alphas made, techniques and such.
Not sure if I will polypaint or move on.

Cheers,
