Likeness Sketchbook - Ivailo Ivanov

Hi guys, my name is Ivailo and Ive been struggling with getting okay looking heads done in Zbrush so I wanted to go ahead and start doing some work in Zbrush everyday, first likeness I did was of Brad Pitt’s Achilles (troy 2004).While this is finished work for which im not planning on going back to, Ill be posting WIPS soon on my next sculpts (next one will be James Franco)

Let me know what you think and if you can give me tips and critiques I would really appreciate.Thank you for your time guys!



Well if you dont plan to revisit that model, I wonty do a critic on that model. More the next one

Hello again from me. I started sculpting james Franco and finished laying out some basic shapes and forms.Still really early but Its looking okay.Let me know if you see something out of order and thanks !

well for you I critic only when I see from many angles. Could you share a front/side/3quarter view?

Hey!Sure thing, here’s more views

a quick test I did to see if the overall shape i got is close:

What I got was not really what I expect. a Front like a orthographic view front. You just share multiples angles.

I thought you would go more in details with pores and skin texture

Yes Im having trouble doing this and still keeping things more realistic so Ill try to improve on that matter.Have some outsourcing to do before i go back to these so ill post again in the coming days

There’s been some time since my last likeness so i got back to it and did a female one.
Margot Robbie


Decided I need to improve my skills and spent a ton of time on Margot, redoing her 3 or 4 times.
I decided ill get her to be harley for this final image ill be rendering in vray.
Here is a WIP of the sculpt omg2.jpg

I keep going


Rendered in Vray and finished.
