    Default RhinoMan

    Here is a model I'm starting. It's based off a concept sketch on found doing a google search. I forgot the artists name but thought it was cool and I want to model it. I started the base mesh in Lightwave and I'll finish the modeling in ZBrush. I'm pretty much all set with the base but the ears do look right to me. Any thoughts on them?

    Nice start on the modeling. Don't make the ears too thin to start with, or they'll become almost impossible to control once you hit the sub-d button.

    Forgive me for saying so, but that's an awesome sketch and it does seem a discourtesy to the artist to just say you've forgotten his/her name .. get back on Google and bloomin' well find it! (said jokingly, but meant seriously).

    I believe that's Arturo's work, great artist in the real clay aswell as this new Digital Zclay

    Default Fixed Ears

    I made the ears a little smaller. I think they were to big.

    good start.
    can you show us the topology?

    Ahh .. glad I pushed you for the artist's name. ZBrush would be perfect for him (see the sculptures on his site). Thanks.

    looking good

    but, no, that is not Tristans work....that IS Arturo's.

    giving the artist who did the design work for something you are doing, or even baseing off of is very important.

    he posts on here quite a bit.

    again, good work.

    Default I'd like your opinions on the horns

    Hey, I'd like your opinions on the forehead horn. I'm not feeling the big horn on the forehead. I like it without or maybe a small one. Some of the reference pics I'm using have either one horn or a big horn then small one. What do you guys think?

    I'd do it the other way around. Big horn on the nose, then small horn on the forehead. like a real rhino, the big horn is in front.

    No, on second thought, I wouldn't. But keep the horn on the forehead, looks nicer. Although I would make the base wider....

    Its coming along.


    Nice to see you actually gave the real artist his due. You may even want to send him a link to let him know. He may dig the idea.



    I would make his horns wider when looking at the front angle. they look good from the side but from the front they look really skinny and pinched.

    Horns are cone shaped... and they are cylindrical/circular at the bottom. Not narrow.
