    Default skdzines sketchbook

    Hey all, I've decided to combine my work into a sketchbook page. Nothing new at the moment to share that I haven't posted before, just wanted a more meaningful thread for portfolio purposes. Everything is ordered from oldest to newest. Please provide any C&C!

    Thanks for checking it out!

    Default Cheetara

    Hey Everyone! Here is my latest project I've been working on. Another Thundercat, this time Cheetara which is also my first female character I've ever done. It's still a WIP but I wanted to post it and see if I can get some feedback. I'm having a hard time getting the expression on her face to be correct. It feels like a deer in headlights. I plan on making some adjustments once I hopefully get some feedback and will post updates later. Thanks for looking!

    Concept art is by Jeff Chapman.

    Hello Scott. Look again at the concept art - the upper lids on the original cover a portion of the pupil. Yours eyes are just opened too wide. Also, accent the lower eyelids a little more, and the area between the lid and the cheek. Finally, check the line dividing the light fur from the darker fur in the face. Yours curve less, and I think that may also be contributing to the areas around the eyes looking 'flatter' with less expression. Hope these suggestions are helpful. Otherwise nice job interpreting the concept

    Thanks for the feedback Dante! Here are a few updated Zbrush BPR renders. I've fixed her eyes as well as redid the lighting and tweaked her skin shader a bit. I think it's looking better but I'll let everyone else be the judge of that. Again, C&C welcome! Thanks for looking!

    Edit: Slight update to the multiple views. I had to fix her butt a bit, her left cheek had too much shadow under it which should've been a bit more stretched out due to her leg being positioned forward.

    Gorgeous. Initially thought there was a halo around the render but then realized you have a fine hair over the whole form. Wonderful touch.

    Default Sully - Monsters Inc

    Rendered in Zbrush BPR with Fibermesh. Photoshop composite. I think I'm going to do another version in Maya and Mental Ray. I'm going to try either Shave and a haircut or Maya nHair. C&C welcome and appreciated!
