hey teamonster me again started sculpting i guess a part of the base its diablo/saurons head ripped off vertigo will likely be eating it(haven't decided yet)
done in 10 minutes obviously still a wip (theres no texture!!!!!!!!!!)
wait how do you send a pic from a file to here????????
Sculptingmonster610 taking on Vertigo great! I keep looking at that one and just thinking, um? By the way she's a girl aparently.
Thanks for the ref. (If you're having trouble attatching pics 'go adavanced' it's the icon of a paper clip. CA now offers direct uploads from your computer no need for image host, it's quick and this way pictures won't fade off into history)
Everyone feel free to post good ref you've found, it's a friendly competition so help each other out, it's nice.
MadCross now the thread is active I'll see what promoting I can do
fritfrito you and me on the same page buddy, I'm going to do Blizzard VS Diablo I think. Been looking at PJ'S KingKong for inspiration.
(oh by the way I'm not eligible for prizes)
FRUITDOT DO IT!
You'll only improve, got nothing to loose, just enjoy your art.
I'll be the first to admit as soon as I think I'm the bee's knees someone posts up and blows me out of the water! I love it, I love the potential we all have.
maddmaestro Don't think about the pennies, think about the challenge of it. Give me your hat dude
dark wraith More fun than you can shake a stick at!
fritofrito Excatly what I was thinking.
I'm going to try and push myself to top that! Aargh big challenge, YAY!
john d You can choose to leave it unpainted. I do encourage you guys to take it all the way and have a go at painting.
However as we are judging sculpting, as aposed to painting skills it is not vital.
hmm, I've been thinking and thinking... and thinking some more, and I think that I'll actually have a go! I'm not sure if I'll have time to finish the sculpture tho, considering my University studies, and I haven't decided which character to sculpt yet either, but I hope that's OK anyway? I'll do my best!
Oh yes, I almost forgot, it's done now! =)
btw, I didn't quite get if we were to post our progress shots on this thread, or on our own threads?
Welcome fruitdot, thanks for the ref, yes definatley post your progress here, dont be shy. Just when you're "finished" take a couple really good pics and send them directly to me.
This is for everyone to have that air of mystery and excitiment near the end. I personally find the last hours of a sculpt can be really interesting- how it magically all comes together!
I will then format all the pictures nicely (i.e all the same size) and present them in unison at the same time to the judge.
Okay, then I will be brave and post my concept and my progress so far:
The idea is Diablo lying on the ground because he has been hit by another one of the characters (I'm not sure which one yet or if I will sculpt it too), and that he continues the battle but on his back. ^^
Here are a couple of pics of my progress and the sculpt atm:
I do have to add that Roostercat's AMAZING t-rex sculpt has been a huge inspiration, also other references from different places.
