    Default Cxyda's Sketchbook

    Hey guys!
    finally after lurking around for about 2 years now and stalking your astonishing artwork i managed to register and want to show you what i've done the last 3 weeks. I created it in my spare time and worked 3 steps ahead and 2 steps back constantly So sorry for that early WIP post! But i really hope you like it and drop me some comments and tips in here. Want to learn more of you guys .. so warm up your keyboards AND fingers ladies and gentlemen and give me some feedback PLEASE :-)

    ok, now to the fun part. This is my latest work, she will be an archer i think so she will have a modern compound bow i think. She is not a medieval archer, because she is carrying a handgun as you can see, i kind of like it so i think i will keep it :-) Most of the props are just roughly sculpted and nothing of this character is finished yet. I tried to get a feeling of the final shape.

    I didn't tried the new awesome fibremeshes yet, but i will =)
    As you may see i REALLY need a lot of help in materials and rendering them. So if you know any good tutorial about Materials (espacially cloth / fabric / wool) PLEASE drop me the link :-)

    as i don't want to kill the board design here i give you the link to the super high quality images:

    ok i think that's it! Hope you like it and hope you tell me what you think about it.

    Cxyda

    First of all - Welcome to ZBrushCentral - Glad you joined mate
    Great work on your medieval archer girl, really nice concept and great sculpt!
    The anatomy of the body is very solid and I like the outfit for her aswell!
    One thing though, her chest seems to pop out a little, if you know what I mean, the sideview of it
    Did you render them out in ZBrush or is this the LowPoly model with all the Maps on it?
    I would love to help you with the rendering but I am also trying to learn rendering, because I suck at it big time^^
    Definently looking forward to your future work and your progress here on ZBrushCentral, will be interesting to look at!
    Wishing you all the best and happy sculpting,
    - Kenny

    p.s.: great start here on zbrushcentral, keep at it

    THX KC!
    those are the hipoly meshes renderd or screengrabbed directly out of ZB. No lowpolys and just a little polypainting.
    Thx for the comment on her chest, i think i know what you mean ... i'll try to find the mistake here!

    Best wishes to Munich

    Things to do next :

    Working on the arrows

    i experimented a little with different styles, but i'm still not 100% sure which direction i should go >.<
    She looks a bit staring, i think her iris is too big ... what do you think?
