Revitalizing the warrior

Had some people look my warrior over and got a lot of good feed back.
I don't want to leave him as an unfinished piece - I think the variety of materials, textures, and extreme amount of hair cards will be a good challenge for me. On top of bringing a piece to completion, instead of jumping around from idea to idea. :)

Week 12-ish, the elusive male model appears. Artist uses chalk for value...its somewhat effective...

Week 11 Drawing

This is...Week 11? There were 2 weeks where the model was miss-scheduled ~ Anyway, perspective party! Foreshortening all the things.

Warrior Sculpt Finished

This will have to be the end of the sculpting phase for the warrior - the challenge technically ends today. There is still some retopping and UVing to do, and of course texturing, but it will have to wait. Depending on how interesting the April challenges sound, it could wait for a bit, but this will be finished soon no matter what...

Some shadow in the render for funsies~

Warrior Progress #2

Still working on this polycount challenge. The bust plan was looking silly so I've gone back to full body which will hurt my chances of finishing by the deadline...but will most likely result in a much better looking final product~

Week 8 Drawing and Warrior Progress

Week 8 of Figure Drawing - certainly some progress compared to Week 1 !

Also some progress on Warrior dude - mainly the hair. My first real real attempt at sculpted hair, not too shabby.

Week 7 Drawings

Nice change of pace, a male model! Rare in these parts~

Also went to a sketching event where a -clothed- model stands around for us in a bar! Good fun :D
Mostly fast drawing is done there, and stylized is not only welcome but usually the norm but I tried to stick to realistic for practice:

Baby's First Community Challenge

So I promised myself, and other people, that I would participate on I am...

Anyway, I'm very late to starting the Character Challenge on PolyCount, which is a 2-month long event that started in February but I will try to work out a bust of the warrior concept for the month of March.

This is the concept:
Some kind of post-apocalyptic looking warrior dude...with a mishmash of fabric and weapon themes...but I'm not judging! I am modeling it regardless! (also the concept artist is pretty kickass)

Progress in the last few days - lots to do.

Also I'm totally using Jason Momoa as a reference for this guy, he could so be that concept dude :D

Leg Study Part 2

Finished up the second part of my leg anatomy study, based on a fitness model and sampled from ballerinas~

Was playing around with Lighting in ZBrush - I'm happier with the edge and shadow quality but its possible it came out a bit dark, future renders will need more lighting or a less matching background.
