    Old Mans head

    Hey there,

    i worked on that piece now a couple of hours and need some feedback. I want to make a real looking head, as much as possible but i have the impression that it still looks artificial and strange...somehow. Anyone can help ?

    I used Zbrush for the head and PS for render passes and details.

    the biggest issue is, it lacks proper structure.

    im using the loomis approach to establish the volumes, cutting away and adding to create the main-planes.



    heres a quick video to show my approach. im using the 128 dynamesh sphere as a base.
    tools used are move, clipcurve, trimdynamic, claybuildup, the transpose tools (move and rotate), insert_sphere (eyes), insert_cylinder (mouth cylinder and ears), mask-rectangle, and dam_standard for the mouthline. this gives me a base with good proportions before i add detail and doesnt take very long (15 min for modelling, 30 min for getting a movie out of zbrush the first time ^^).

    Having to guess, it appears that you may be working to fast with to high a z-intensity on your brushes. Go easy on the Pinch Tool, too. You’ve overdone it on the lips, especially. You also need to study surface anatomy of the head/face and get enough reference.
