The goal this week was to figure out the legs... still trying to get better at hard surface stuff in Zbrush. some things i still need to use Modo for--especially long-thin stuff like the leg struts. Trying to get clean detail on forms like that in Zbrush can kind of suck, but i think i have figured out a few more tricks.
Quike--It's just homework for a Zbrush class I'm taking online at ZBrushWorkshops.com with Furio Tedeschi. It's a lot of fun, but I'm lacking enough time to spend on homework right now.
finally started to learn how to UV map. opens the door to all kinds of weird stuff.
littlefeet--i wish i could help more, but i'm just way too busy keeping up with all the deadlines and new software and family stuff right now. i'll try to post what i can as far as tutorials go, but it's really hard to tell when i'm going to have free time or not. anyway, hang in there man. and thanks for checking in here too.
i first came across your thread almost 5 years ago, I think. I've been periodically checking your thread out over the years, to read your updates and the like.
you are one of my major inspirations for making the switch over to art. Thanks for being there, willing to show yourself to the larger art community, and dispense advice on learning, attitude, and life. I just wanted to let you know that whether you meant to or not, you've made a major difference in another person's life.
haven't done this in a long time. wanted to see if i could still kind of do it. this was a 4-hour pose, but i threw away what i had after the first hour and a half or so and started over again. there's other stuff i'm working on right now, but i've gotta keep it under wraps.
tentativesteps--thanks, i really appreciate what you wrote. after being around the block a few times now, my attitude towards sharing has changed a little. i still don't have any problem sharing techniques or experiments or tutorials or my (crazy, bullshit) views on switching careers, etc. but i've kind of learned to be a little bit more guarded about sharing personal projects just because they're fragile, naked things. it will always be good art-karma to pass knowledge and experience along.
Damn I was thinking of taking that Zbrush course but I didn't have the time when it was released. Please share more of the process behind your Zbrush stuff when you can! It honestly helps and makes me feel a bit better even though I missed out xD
My observational skills may be great but I said nothing about my drawing skills
