    Default Iggy Pop

    Oh it's been some time, since my last post here.
    But i read this forum a lot.

    Here is a sculpting of Iggy Pop.

    I hope you like it.
    It was fun and challenging to sculpt him.

    I've also captured the first part of the schulpting session.
    Need some time to upload to vimeo.


    cheers,
    Christian

    Incredible likeness. Though considering how specific his face looks like it is probably hard to confuse him with someone else.
    Overall very good job. Not sure about his real hair but you might add some stray hairs to make a haircut look less CG'ish (right now it looks too even and parallel)

    Thank you for your feedback

    You are right, i need to add more dynamic into the hair.
    Will redo them with smaller strands as fibermesh.

    A littlebit more progress. Any critique or suggestion is helpful
    to finalize him soon.

    Right now i am unshure about the background but i am thinking
    about just a plain canvas with a littlebit of grain and gradient.

    The final will be rendered
    without the arnold watermarks.

    Oh thank you very much! You are right, I spent so many patience to the face that i lost the focus to the clothing. Thanks a lot for the head up ... I will work on it.

    Learned a lot about Arnold and Sculpting Likeness ...
    and lot of lessons to take some time and to refresh the eye.

    Great update. The likeness is striking! In terms of the shader I would say that some brighter and crisper spec will make a skin even more believable by accentuating micro-details like wrinkles or pores. But personally I have a tendency to make skin more wet and shiny so don't listen to me
    How long does it take to sculpt something like this? I always suck at likeness.
    And you made a good point about proper rest for the eyes. I remember working 12-14 hours per day and close to the night I was like "What the hell am I looking at".
    So congrats with a nice render and hope to see more stuff from you.

    Oh thank you very much for your nice message.

    There is always room for improvement and i think that i will work on some parts on this model from time to time.
    I am trying to push myself further. As you know the 80% of work is easy ... the hardest parts are the remaining 20% ...
    Thats my goal for this year. Better anatomy knowledge and push every work at least beyond 90%.

    I hope that it is possible.

    The sculpt, that gives me a shiver when i look at it now, was done in 2-3 Evenings and after some days
    of until Christmas and new year i looked at him and was thinking "what the hell is it? ... thats not Iggy!"
    I've realised that i got completely blind while working on him. So the days of refreshed my view and
    i decided to overwork him. As you can see in the progress ... this second sculpt was done
    in one evening ... there i also realised that he better than the fist but also is off in areas.

    It made click, as i used reverences that i flipped ... i also flipped the model while sculpting.
    That refreshed the eye instantly. If you adapt ... flip again ... also flip the reference images.

    This helped me a lot. I also asked a question in the facebook Zbrush group, because flipping
    the model in Zbrush was time consuming ... Delete lower subdivs, mirror model and then
    reconstruct subdivs ... As answer Fran Picazo said "Let me do something about this." ...
    and he did a fantastic Mirror script for this.

    With this process it took again one evening to the final sculpt.

    I complete it need around 1 1/2 weeks of evenings with Hair, learning Arnold Render and testing out some things.

    Thank you and happy Zbrushing
