Inspired by the smile of a piece from an "ear" video from Taron, and wanting to sculpt a more "by the book" recognizable goblinoid head than my previous page attempt , here is my updated entry.
I was overlooking a lot until now the clay option of the draw brush, unsure my mouse sculpting would be precise enough to really make a difference, but i found during that one, that the clay function introduced a very nice visual depth to the facial muscles that the draw without clay can't do without the help of several other tools (multiplying then the face count).
Loving this software, coming from a technoberk stance as I do. I'm 2d guy, with little or no comprehension of 3d unless it relates to wearing those glasses at the cinema.
Some truly wonderful work about in the various threads including this one of course. That's a fantastic expression and over all sculpt on that last elven entry - or is that only to untrained eyes(?).
Been dabbling with this a bit, and have got a real kick out of your various vids, Taron. So inspirational - but do you have to make it look so simple (damn you - no, not really). Here's one I'm working on at the moment.
I wanted to exercise on something different this time, then I saw the illustration "Redneck Bigfoot" of Kevin Keele and I thought: "why not?" I know, I'm not even close to grasp the essence of the expression of the original, anyway here's my entry.
AH, Nickillus, you're born for this 3d stuff, I can tell! ...once you get really comfortable, you'll make some insane stuff, no doubt at all. Uhm...sorry for making it look so easy, but you seem to confirm it!
whilst i applaud ALL of these challenge threads i do feel its somewhat unfair..why?..let me explain before you flame me. here we have all walks of life from the semi-pro to the complete noob this is great as it brings all levels together to learn however when it comes to "challenges or competitions" the pro's will always produce the most amazing stuff. I can tell you as a complete novice to any form of sculpting program seeing amazing sculpts next to your noobish effort is very disheartening. so personally i think things should be split into categories ie. complete novice to ANY sculpting software amature some experience with a sculpting program hobbyist fairly familiar with sculpting programs semi-pro been using sculpting programs for a good while. pro sculpting is what you do, you live to sculpt. industry you work in the industry doing 3d modeling and sculpting. at least this way the noobs can look at other noobs work and feel much better about what they are producing. but also look at the pro's work to admire and learn. i might have completely the wrong end of the stick and it might just be me that thinks this way, and for that im not going to apologise because its part of my disability. at the end of the day this is just a suggestion, end of story.
