Energise´s Sketchbook (mini-tut pge 5, 6 & 17)

This is a sculpt I am working on at the moment.
Been sculpting from a “real” photo I found hanging in a store :stuck_out_tongue:
This guy is a banana worker from South Africa I think.
I will scan the photo later so you can see what I am sculpting from.

I am a fan !

Nice skin details gives realistic feel to the sculpt keep it up!!

Hey Jonas! Your new model is looking wonderful! Fantastic work on the wrinkles. I especially love the area around the mouth/eyes (I know how hard it is! :))
Impressive work, as usual! :slight_smile:

awesome sculpt! he kinda looks like a cowboy ghandi :smiley: …just missing the glasses.

Moni-Poroni: Thanks Moni! Yeah we are old folks sculpters hehe!

skinnybonez: hahahaha I thought the exact same thing when I saw the photo of this guy :stuck_out_tongue: Does Ghandi have a brother? hehe.

Santis: Thanks my swedish friend! :wink: I really wanna be good at human sculpts, practice practice practice…

Thought I´d share with you my latest attempts at rendering some SSS.
It is hard as heeell :confused:
Any tips on how to best render portraits is very welcome!! :stuck_out_tongue:

(this is just a fast_sss with no textures what so ever)

I like how you did the wrinkles on this guy.

Hey Jonas,

Just joining in to welcome you back…
Did not even know you had a Sketchbook here.

Just returned from a brief hiatus a couple of months ago myself.

You know how much I love this character… technically superb, but it’s his presence & spirit that strike a chord for me.

Best Wishes,
