    Default HellGrind's sketchbook

    Hello folks,

    I was looking at this forum for month and month, and i decided to take part to the community by starting my first thread.

    This first piece is my first attempt at low-poly modeling. I first did a very quick rough of the global shape, then started from z-spheres to sculpt this tall creature. Any comment will be really apreciated.

    Hey HellGrind. For a first attempt, I can't wait the next pieces.
    I like the overall character design, did you plan to texture it ? Can we see some Zbrush screen shots ?

    It would be really cool to see a walk cycle from this doodle ^^

    Thank you for your comment Sylvain. ^^
    I plan to texture it but for the moment my goal is to improve my sculpting skills by doing some other sketches. Then i will learn polypaint to texture this tripod, or maybe i'll try bodypaint.

    Here is some zbrush screenshots of my biotripod.

    Hi there,

    Here is a little wip of Agathocles, necromancer. I left his right orbit empty because he's gonna be one eyed. I also did some long hair but i wasn't satisfied at all, have to find some tutorial to do it correctly. I'll try to finish it tomorrow.

    Hope you'll like it.

    I put some details on Agathocles. I'm satisfied for a first head with zspheres, but i still need some practice to do some realistic anatomy.
    I'm planning on creating a normal-mapped game character but i have to work on the overall design to make it really cool. I'll do his long hair directly in low poly, and i'll try to work on his pet soon.

    Hope you like it. Feel free to comment and rate, my thread looks a bit dead.

    Default Alien sketch

    Hello there,

    This is my last doodle, a sort of alien. I tried to make a creature that doesn't refer to classical human or animal based structure with limbs, head, eyes, mouth... I'd like to read your opinion about that.
    Does the creature make sense ?
    Can you see where the front, rear, top and bottom are ?
    Do you find it menacing, funny, neutral ?
    Any comments will be greatly apreciated. (if someone replies...)

    Don't point your proboscis at me like that, my alien friend!

    Some great works. Your bio tripod and latest alien are really neat and unique seeming concepts.

    Hey Sylvain and Nicole, thanks a lot for your comments.

    Nicole: Don't worry about the proboscis, you will be safe... for now.

    Sylvain: In sci-fi movies and tv shows, aliens are usually human-looking, with a head, arms and legs... But an alien could be very different from what we use to see. Thinking about the alien, i quickly get the overall shape and i felt like i had no choice but put it on zbrush. In my idea, the creature don't speak, don't eat or drink, floats in the air and move objects by a kind of psychic force, and it's pacific... when not annoyed. How could we react in front of such a strange creature ? How to communicate ? I wonder how it could be to stand in front of this human-sized alien.
    Maybe i'll make a picture with some aliens like that going out from their ship. Ha to do an original one. ^^

    Here is my wip for the Dominance War IV second mini challenge, again under the CG Society flag where i'm known as Abrvpt.

    I plan to create something between a sphynx cat and a puma, with a grim look of course. ^^ Starting to block shapes.
