    Default 3d Jam #4: The cryptkeeper - Nathan Stromwasser

    I've been wanting to sculpt the cryptkeeper from Tales from the Crypt, the HBO series. I have always loved his design. Its a little tricky for me to type right now though, since I sprained my left thumb yesterday. I hope its heeled enough by tomorrow to rough out a base mesh or a zsketch.

    I'm not sure why the text is linking to the cghub post. I guess that's kind of nice.

    Finding references is the tricky part though. I'd love to see pictures or the original sculpt used for the show, but that's probably in some book.

    A rough base, which I think could work nicely. I might need to retopologize. But maybe not, if there is a way to control poly distribution.

    Would anybody happen to know where I can get the original sculpt photos of the cryptkeeper? The sculptor is Kevin Yagher.

    When I first saw the thumbnail, I thought, 'this looks like the cryptkeeper.
    You´re on the right way. The likeness is right

    An update. Converted the hair to unified skin and duplicated it. Not the greatest solution though.

    Some work on the clothes. I'm going for the doctor look from season two DVD cover. I'm not sure what to do about the base, so that its viewable from all directions. The cryptkeeper almost always sat behind a table.
