    Antonin Dvorak Portrait in Relief

    I recently finished up this portrait. I think sculpting directly in relief helps avoid a lot of the awkwardness of systematic hair styles in relief. All those curls were just not flattening quite as...

    Very nice and quick work! I see a lot of the same obstacles I usually run into in the details of your Jack Sparrow. Things like preserving the shape of the limbs under the folds as they get more...

    Quick Relief

    I was messing with doing a quick figure relief. I did my usual and forgot to set it down after an hour and took it mostly to a finish. Pose is from the book "Study of Pose", #802.

    Fanny Mendelssohn

    I finished up my relief of Fanny Mendelssohn recently. The piece we're using in print is zoomed in to crop out her torso and emphasize her face but I preferred the entire sculpt for my render.

    Sketchbook: Rebooted #6 - I Had a Cold.

    6. Finally, I'll include a new free sculpt. It started off as a bust to personify the cold I was getting over at the time and I later went and sculpted a body for practice. I tried to use as little...

    Sketchbook: Rebooted #5 - Fox on a Log

    5. At the same time, I also rendered out a Fox sculpture that I made for my Grandpa and took forever and a half to complete. I based it on a set of interesting photos found on the google and intend...

    Sketchbook: Rebooted #4B - Horse and Dog (sketches and print)

    4b. In making my new site I compiled a lot of the sketches for the Horse and Dog project. They obviously aren't Zbrush related but they are part of the process for my Zbrush projects so I'll upload a...

    Sketchbook: Rebooted #4A - Horse and Dog (renders)

    4. While I didn't render them with MR like I'd intended, I also neglected to share my final Horse and Dog renders! I actually got around to doing it for a temporary portfolio I brought to a storybook...

    Sketchbook: Rebooted #2 - Composers A

    2. I went back and rendered all of my composers using Mental Ray in Maya. The new images are much more revealing in regard to the depth of the pieces. I can only attach 6 at a time, so check out a...

    Sketchbook: Rebooted #1 - Unsorted

    Apparently I slowed down my posting to a crawl during some longer projects and never returned to share more! I'm fairly sure I'm approaching the end of that reduced pace and I'd like to actually...

    Abraham Lincoln Relief

    For awhile now I've had Lincoln on my to-do list for my relief work. After finally getting done with the animals in the last project I sat down to do him. I was glad for a fresh start on the whole...

    Dog

    I finally finished the horse and dog, though I haven't gotten around to making some nice renders of them. I want to take them out of zbrush to get something nice through mental ray (I have trouble...

    Here's a quick progress render of my horse. Being my first real animal study, the final surface is a result of my studies of the muscles and volumes and skin and sculpting techniques. I'll get better...

    A horse, of course.

    I'm making a sculpture for a friend of mine that requires a horse and a dog. I really wanted to get some of the anatomy right and put it off for quite a long time.

    It needs to be done very soon,...

    More Toppings!

    For some reason, I refused to post my last few projects because they weren't as done as I wanted them. I've since changed my mind and realized the folly of my ways. Here are the presentable things...

    Ok, to make life easier for me and to make it easier for you to look at the code, I made a simplified version of the loop I'm trying to work with. It's just three basic routines:

    I added a slider up in the top of the interface so that I can change the length of a "minute". It has the side effect of recalculating how many "minutes" have passed so that if I was half way done...

    Thanks for the quick and detailed reply.
