    Default BigD17's sketchbook

    Hi everyone,

    In attempt to make myself practice more, as well as get some comments and criticism from all the amazingly talented artists on ZBC, I thought I would throw my hat into the sketchbook thread.

    So here is a model I have been working on recently. It is a Wolverine (Yeah ........ I know .......... another one!! ) The inspiration for this model comes from Ultimates 3 drawn by Joe Madureira. I am a huge fan of his style.

    Originally, this model was just meant to be a ZSphere bust doodle, but then I got into it and the whole thing grew a little. (Not sure whether the model would be better presented in Black and White)

    As always, comments and criticism would be greatly appreciated. Hope you like some of the work.

    Cheers!!

    Default Head Sculpt from reference

    The base mesh for this head was modelled in Maya then into ZBrush for some detailing. Think I need to go back and add in some more skin details and also I would love to texture it using the images I used for reference.

    Comments and Crits welcome as always.

    Default Anatomy study

    These are some older ZBrush models that were created from an XSI base mesh and then just sculpted to practice anatomy.

    Default Wolverine repose

    Just thought I would have a play about with the pose a little.......... trying to make it look a little more dynamic.

    Quite a different take on Wolverine than the tall, handsome, controlled Hugh Jackman version they portray in the movies. Much closer to the comics. Nice fierceness to him.

    Hi Derek - Thanks very much for posting. Glad you like the model. Yeah, I am a big fan of the original design. As I said this was inspired by an image by Joe Madureira so I can't take much credit, although I would like to think that I added a few of my own touches.

    Thanks again for posting.

    For anyone who hasn't seen the image I am referring to here it is:

    Default New Character - WIP

    Here is a character sheet of my latest model. I created a base mesh in XSI and have just started to add in the details in ZBrush.

    I haven't modelled a female character before, so really looking forward to this, but a bit nervous at the same time.

    Would really like to know what people think of the design and the model so far.

    Default Anubis

    This is a model of Anubis. I am kind of designing my version on the fly so at the moment I have no idea where it is going to go.

    The model was made with ZSpheres and then retopologised after the initial form had been blocked in.

    As always comments and crits would be really appreciated.

    Cheers!!

    Here is a quick update. Have started to think about the costume and have added some teeth and gums.

    Everything still needs a bit of work.

    Comments and crits would be appreciated as ever.
