I’m really excited to see that there is a new sketch book section. Just like others have done I’ll post a couple of my older sculpts and renders first.
Good stuff! I think I’ve read a couple of tutorials from you, so thanks for that!
@VickyM72 Glad you like it.
Here is a quick sculpt I did today. I didn’t really take this too far as it wasn’t turning out very well.
Wonderful stuff. The sculpts you think aren’t turning out well are a heck of a lot better than what I can do in sculpt mode.
Love the bunny really cute.
@Anita Just give it some practice and you’ll be better than me in no time
Here is a little update on my Monster. I made him for the sketchfab contest, check it out here: https://sketchfab.com/show/znze8AgdbSk8RidNKgNU6mrqOUL
I retopologized him, gave him a letterman jacket, and gave him a super simple texture. I think the biggest thing letting him down right now are his eyes, I need to get a texture on them.
He looks like he’d fit right in to Monster University. His eye does look like a button. What do you have in the way of graphics programs? There’s a good eye texture tutorial that uses photoshop. I’m not sure if it would work in gimp (I have the program but have yet to learn how to use it.)
I used this tutorials for an iris texture on the head I’m working on http://www.adamdorman.com/tutorials/1/ if I remember correctly I only used the first two steps the difference clouds and the pinch. There’s also this one http://www.gamexe.net/photoshop/realistic-eye/ which may be more of what you’re looking for for this guys eye.
Thanks Anita that’s what I was going for. as to graphic programs I do have photoshop. I just now tried that first tutorial you showed me, however, it didn’t quite look right on him so for now I think I’m gonna have to stick with the basic button eye.
I wish you much luck with your entry for that. I still think he’d fit in quite nicely there.
The deadline for the contest is over, but I decided to push him just a bit further, I think I will call this done.
and just for fun.
look at those drawing skills!
Don’t feel bad about your drawing skills. Mine are waaaay worse. He’s got a nice glow to him and looks like the life of the party as well.
here is what I’m working on right now. I used Zbrush for sculpting and retopologized it in Blender then brought it back to Zbrush for texturing. Rendered in Cycles (its just a test for now)
I’m also thinking of rigging and animating it.
Here is a quick animation test.
Your thoughts would be appreciated.
hand study, followed Jonathan Williamson’s tutorial on sculpting hands with dyntopo (part of the modeling a pilot series.)
