-Captain Mal Reynolds update-

Decided to load this back up, thinking of doing a bigger project with him, purely fan-art.
Its not quite ready for low poly time, but a few fixes here and there should sort that out.

Anywho, anjoy

First model i've done in my spare time since i've been working for Gaia 3D. Sitting in front of 3ds max all day doesnt really inspire you to go home and make more stuff... MEH

Fight Game Character - The Gent -

A character I've been working on in spare time [spare being the operative word, I've bagged a job 200 miles away, so I've been trying to arrange somewhere to live]
There are still a few things I need to work on: the diffuse and specular needs a quick tweak and there are a couple of areas the skin didn't take too well.

Here is the process from concept to it's current state.

Finalised Zbrush Sculpt

Low Poly: 3600 tri's
Rigged [Biped] Skinned [3ds Max Skin] and Posed - Ready for animation

Something to note: he's going be for an iOS game, but the only poly's on screen will be character, so a high poly count would be fine [something like 9k perhaps]. I managed to get it down to 3600 tri's and was satisfied with the silhouette and animat-ey topology. Watch this space for updates on "Fight Game" [name to be decided]

-The Pagemaster: Horror-

So, here's what i've been working on today. In case you're unaware of who he is, he's "Horror" from a 90's Film/Cartoony thing "The Pagemaster."
I'm planning on doing the other two books after this guy is finished.
Still plenty to work on, but the idea is there.

-Captain Mal Reynolds' Pistol-

Spent most of the day on this.. O_O...
Fancied something a little more technical than organic sculpting
For something that is gonna be on screen at about an inch of the display...maybe I could have made it less detailed...ah well, now he has a shiny gun..

-Nathan Fillion update-

So i've been working on my Nathan Fillion sculpt, getting the clothing bases on there etc. The braces were...unpleasant to make, but I think that'll be the most technical part of him.
Anyway...hopefully i'll keep this up to date and a progression should start showing. Cheers

Massive neglect to the blog as of late, so dumping some work. Ill put a bit of text explaining what and why they are here... boop!

[Slig] Decided to do a bit of fan art, so here's a Slig from the 90's game Abes Odyssey.
The organic bits were entirely zbrush, whereas the mechanical bits were 3DS MAX.
[Head 01] Testing out head sculpting abilities and realistic texture painting methods. Starting to understand it.
Everything in Zbrush
[Head 02] Same as Head 01, head sculpting abilities and realistic texture painting methods. 
Everything in Zbrush

[Arm] Arm anatomy practice. Spent a bit of time on detailing a hand as I usually skip over it. I gained a lot of valuable information from this - my drawing and sculpting has definitely improved as a result from studies. STUDY STUDY

[Demony] Speed sculpt, attempting a full body anatomy study..with a cool head.
Zbrush again
[Nathan Fillion] Sculpting realistic likeness to Nathan Fillion [of "Firefly" and more recently "Castle"] I'm going to keep
this one up and go ahead onto full body and model his clothes on his character "Captain Mal Reynolds" in "Firefly"
All Zbrush so far

THERE...I blogged, would have liked to have shown some pre-lim sketches of some stuff, but I should get on with things, maybe this will be for next time.
ANYWAY.. If anyone is reading this, can I have a job?
