    Heather this is great. I love the stylization, the expression and color. The lack of fur reminds me of the infected rats from I Am Legend.

    I like that you have gone in a slightly different direction from your other more realistic peices (which are also awesome).

    2 minor crits if I may:

    1. I would love to see more finger and toe spread along with pad compression to sell the floor contact.

    2. I think the jaw definition could be softened a little. It kind of feels like the skin is stuck to the back side and bottom of the bone.

    Love your work.

    What an excellent sculpt of a rat! I love the character that it has. What material are you using?

    Thanks AA-ron.
    The material that I used is from Ralf Stumpf. It's a great set offered on Gnomonology.

    Those shaders are awesome. Worth every penny.

    Hey Gabe,
    Thank you so much. You are always so encouraging and helpful, thanks for that as well.
    By the way, I think you should post your last project- it turned out amazing!

    Lucky- Thanks!
    I picked that color because I used to have two hairless rats, and one of them was very pink, and one was more lavender/grey in color. Both completely hairless. The darker one would have had black hair if she actually had hair, and the pink one would have been white. Mine is a bit more exaggerated, but a similar shade to the darker one.

    Hey Bryan, thanks! I remember seeing your sculpts before you started at work, great sculpting!
    Yeah, I only just started posting here, and I don't have much that isn't still NDA that I can show yet.
    Sure, stop by! I need to get up and see what you have been up to as well.

    Here is a Star Wars character bust, Garindan. He is from SW Episode 4 right before the Cantina scene. All done in Zbrush.

    Thanks Aumakua. For this I used a regular sphere at low res to quickly block in shapes of the head,torso and arms.Then I retopologize. I also use a cube a lot and divide and then edge loop for fingers etc.The base was made from a cylinder.
