When I start projects I tend to be a bit too optimistic. This obviously has been one of them. But I am not making this post as form of excuse for not managing the goal I have made a few posts back. I did, however, stay in course for a few days and I do love sculpting. I might have been
foolish overly ambitious with it. I WILL continue to sculpt. Maybe not everyday but I will continue to sculpt. I post on forums like Polycount forums or Zbrush central with my latest sculpts but I unfortunately I forgot to post them here. I will however post the other sculpts I done during that week and I will keep you guys updated. I might not sculpt every day, but I will keep sculpting. :)
Here are some of the sculpts I made last week. I might not be happy with most of them but they all fit the description. So here we go!
- Cacodemon inspired sculpt
- A sci-fi-esque helmet sculpt - This is one of the couple I had only half an hour or so.
- Lastly, a small attempt at learning some hair sculpt. I also only had 20 min during lunch to finish it.
As you all can see, I still have a lot to learn. But I do want to continue learning and I will keep on sculpting so I can become a kick ass in no time! :) Hope you guys liked it and please leave a comment! Let me know if you guys have any cool sculpting tutorials, tips or critiques. I would love to hear from you.
Have a great weekend.
Hi everyone! Its another day, thus another sculpture post. For those of you that have no clue what Im talking about, just check this post from yesterday.
Today I used a different method to create this fellow. I started out with a little drawing program called Alchemy (Click here to check it out), its a pretty nice sketching program and its all free so give it a try. But anyway, seems like I am getting off subject here. So anyhow. I used Alchemy to do a little sketch and saved it as a black and white jpeg to use it as an alpha in Zbrush. I fired up sculptris next and made a base bust sculpt which I transfered to Zbrush using their awesome GoZ feature. Inside Zbrush I used the sketch I made on Alchemy and applied a mask on where the face of my mesh would be. After a few strokes and some smoothing, I went back to sculptris and starting sketching and just let the shapes come naturally. So after a while my alarm kicked in and I had to stop. I am forcing myself to stop and leave the piece unfinished so I can look at it and force myself next time to make a more unified piece. So here is the result of day 2 of my challenge:
So there you have it! What do you think? You’re more than welcome to give any critiques, tips and suggestions. Just hit up the comments and Ill hear you out! As for me, I will enjoy the rest of my Sunday and get back to sculpting again tomorrow! :D
Wow, its been a while since I updated this blog huh? I’ve been up to Umeå to record with the guys from Hate Ammo, went down to Malmö to clean up my old apartment, our game is reaching its Beta phase in a couple of week, so needless to say, I’ve been busy! Fortunately, I do have a couple of things to post here and I will start with something I started thinking about for a while. To make a sculpt a day. I already made one today, I will post it after the break so check it out! :)
I got myself a copy of the lifehacker book and started reading when I got to a part that talked about Jerry Seinfelds productivity secret. Go take a look at those, they are quite interesting. So anyway, the idea of having a chain and apply that to make something good about yourself really appealed to me. One think that I always wanted to do on a daily basis is drawing and sculpting. I already started sketching with a pen on a more regular basis, which is great and you can see in a couple of my recent posts. I just installed Sculptris (amazing free sculpting program, recently updated by pixologic) on my old laptop and started sculpting away. Unfortunatelly my laptop is getting quite old to process heavy sculpting and it has a full memory, making my strokes really slow and after an hour or so of work, each stroke would take 2-3 seconds to show. Which I decided to call it quits and post it. So without further ado, here is the sculpt:
Making this sculpt was very fun, As most sculpting generally is, which is why I started thinking I should actually start making a sculpt a day. One hour or so per day would give me a big motivation to get better at sculpting and it would give me an hour to play around with something I really enjoy. I ended up making an account at dontbreakthechain.com and already marked my first red mark on the calendar! Feels good already! :) What do you think of the sculpt? Any critiques? Hit up the comments and let me hear you! Cheers and see ya soon!
