So I tried my hand at it again today. Maybe 2 1/2 hours of work all total on my Santa Claus. Lots better detail on this one as far as that nose and mouth and even eyes go. I can't seem to figure out the best way to make the eyes yet. Anyways as you can see I'm still getting better with each one and that's all I care about! :) Happy Thanksgiving!!

1st True ZBrush sculpt

I spent about 2 hours this morning modeling a dogs head and polypainting it. It came out pretty nice I think but nothing like the stuff you see on the ZBrush websites! I'm still having problems understanding how some things work still though. I know some people say its a great interface so maybe I'm just use to how 3DS Max and Photoshop work..... I don't know. In any case here's my doggie head!

As you can see I am already getting better! I created this using ZSpheres and sketching on additional spheres to get the muscle tone. After that I made it into a tool and brought it in to sculpt (which is on the left) and the final result of the sculpt is on the right. This one was again around the two hour mark but I got much nicer results at the end of this two hour mark then on the first sculpt earlier this morning! I know it's not exact as far as location of muscles how ever. I was just trying to see if I could sculpt something that looked very muscular.

As I said this morning, I am planning on having an actual piece that be portfolio ready by the end of the year. If not two. I'd say I'm right on schedule so far. I think I may settle down and do a face sculpt and try to take it to completion. With texturing and all.

All ready getting better!

First crack at Zbrush!

OK so I finally took my first shot at ZBrush. I started with just a regular ZSphere then started to move and sculpt. I know it's not that great to look at but what I'm happy to see is that on my first try with out having a tutorial blasting next to me and having to look things up I was able to make a very clear sculpt out of just a sphere! I didn't save this because there's no need. I plan on having portfolio type pieces by the end of the year so I got a ways to go. Also a plus to this is I just got my Wacom tablet and it was also my first time using it while creating in ZBrush! So I have that to get use to as well. At the beginning I was making marks all over my model while I tried to move and rotate but by the time I finished I wasn't doing that anymore. So I definitely made some nice strides today!

I'm never happy with what I create so you know I'm not happy with the end result here so expect the next sculpt....then the next...and the next.... to keep improving on what I have here! Also I think this was like 2 hours. So I know that is a long time to have nothing so that will need to be improved upon as well!!!
