    Here's a model I'm working on. Going for Leonidas eventually. I've gotten his weapons all made. Now I'm working on his body. ZBrush3 makes it so much easier to make muscles. Please give comments and critique!

    I highly recommend using a very good muscle referance. Your anatomy is a bit wonky.

    I agree

    Use some real life referense.

    It would help to do a few sketches before you start sculpting.

    I would use a harder edge brush so you can get more detail faster with less lumps.

    ok, i'll use some refs.

    By harder edge, you mean lower focal shift?

    You do have the skills required to make a great model, its just that you need good references like the other people here said. Looking at a picture while you work makes all the difference between an ok model and a good one.
    Good luck.

    Yeah, play around with the focal shift.

    Try a harder edge, but not too hard.

    Yea you just need a good reference.

    If you have 2 monitors, it really helps. On one monitor you have your reference image and in your main monitor you sculpt.

    Thanks guys.

    Yeah, two monitors would be nice..I guess I'll have to be cheap, and just print it out and tape it, .
    Can any of you point me in the direction of a good reference picture. I found a medical sort of one, but it's a bit hard to "read" if you understand what I'm saying.

    Again, thanks for the critique, it's exactly what I want and need.
