    Default Brian Giacoppo - Finished Models and WIP

    Hey guys,

    I've used the work on this board as inspiration for quite a while and finally decided I should start posting my own.

    This first model was done from a live model in a figure sculpting class. All done in ZBrush with compositing in Photoshop. Textures were projected and then cleaned up with polypainting.

    Any comments and/or critiques will always be welcome. Thanks for taking a look.

    Here's a couple more screen grabs of my John Smith bust above.

    Below that is an older giraffe model that I've decided to rework. I still need to do a bit of muscle/structure work on him before I add all the skin detailing. C&C is welcome.

    Thanks Piggy.

    Here's an update on the giraffe. I threw him in a quick pose.. It might need a little tweaking still, but I think it's close to what I wanted. In the end I'm thinking about maybe sculpting a chimp to ride on his back.

    Latest work, I've been modeling Mason Savoy from the "Chew" comic series. Fun story and awesome illustrations by Rob Guillory. I'd definitely recommend checking it out.

    hey I love all your sculpts! The colors on the bust from your figure drawing class are great in the render. I also really enjoy the style of the character in the suit!

    Hey guys,
    Haven't posted in a while. Just wanted to throw up a quick BPR eye test after following a couple awesome tutorials from Maxter and Antropus.

    Looking forward to throwing a finished version of these in future characters.
