    Hey DrJJ long time no see

    Another that I am working on - off and on - I work at my regular job what seems to be 25 hours a day and there just never seems to be enough time to do the things I want to do. Anyway I am curious to see what I do with this thing.

    I sat down and played with the Panel Loops feature in Zbrush 4r5. Very cool. Here are some shots of my tinkering.

    Default Quick video of the Panel Loop session for the Orca Fighter

    Here is a short video of the panel loop session where I created that Orca looking craft. Forgive the quality...I haven't experimented with the movie features of Zbrush and for some reason my history didn't save with my Zbrush Project file so I only had one version of the movie saved and I had to try and make that work.

    Default I give you Beef

    Couldn't think of a particular name for this guy so I started calling my working files for this little project, 'Beef". I have more work to do but thought I would share the current stage. It started as a Zsphere tool then was skinned and turned into a Dynamesh. I have been away from Zbrush for a while and haven't used it much so part of what I challenged myself with was to sit down and start learning the tools and tricks I needed in order to do the type of work I wanted to do (which is namely full figure creatures, monsters, characters et al). It's all starting to come back slowly and I am rediscovering many aspects of ZBrush that I had forgotten. I want to take a moment and thank the ZBC membership - your works and effort are what got my engines going again.

    This pic shows some of the early stages.



    This is where it is at currently. No texture - just color fill on each of the tools. I will work on a texture once I am done tweaking the body. I may replace the pedestal with a sculpted rock of some kind.


    Cheers!

    decent start.
    Your collar bone (clavicle) is curving the wrong direction, remember that it connects to the shoulder blade (scapula). Your deltoid also connects to your clavicle as well.
    The belly button on your character is far too low. It should be above the lowest ab muscle (or in the middle).
    Your external obliques are also oddly shaped. I think if you remove the double fold thing going on it should be alright.
    I'm digging the head, and and overall proportions though.
