    Default Walt-art Sketchbook (nudity)

    Hey guys

    I bought the program back in late December and lurked the forums for the most part.
    The work on this site is great in inspiration and very helpful in figuring out some of the eccentricities of the wonderful tool.

    I kept saying I'll post and be a actual member of the forums when I get some stuff worth showing...well that could be forever
    The works on this site are so Frigging GOOD!

    great to be apart of it

    Wow your really talented. Each one of those silohettes looks like they could
    be a sculpt. Have you ever posted your 2D at Conceptart.org? Its a good
    place for critique in their critique centre. I like seeing 2D here aswell (since
    ZBrush does that too). I think the main thing I wanna say is to relax and take
    your time. It looks like you want the end result without too much work. You
    know what looks cool, and where it needs to go, just take your time and don't
    get sidetracked.


    OH yeah im going to take your silohettes for inspiration....

    Thanks for the reply and great insight.
    Please by all means share what you came up with; I'm glad it inspired you
    I think your right about being impatient it's something I'm working on..trying to relax slow down study and let it come by puttin in the extr time.
    even with crunch time being a factor for me. I still find time to put a few hours in.

    Bummer bout dominance war 5 being delayed but the delay should result in a GRAND return.

    some more images.

    The HARPY from the comic starstruck..it'll be in issue 11.
    this was a proof of concept render the printed version with be all types of snazzy

    More silhouettes
    my Dom-war 5 entry was quite possibly in here...but I'll do it anyhow.


    i got this concept from Jerad S Marantz he's Awesome.
    I did the soul walker little justice ...since i know more with the tool now; it may not be a bad idea to revisit some things...like the gaudy feet.

    actually got over my intimidation and began sculpting a head.
    i found it easier to get into than i thought. it felt very natural and i was quickly getting the feel to when i used super sculpey with a little zip kicker added to move the masses around easier...that right brain shift that doesn't come easy with polygon modeling in 3d max..it felt way more organic and fluid.

    The layer tool is a great exploration devise capable of holding those test sculpt you just don't know about,,,,at 600 this is a awesome tool.

    this thread has some potential, keep it up!

    how are you using alchemy to assist with your thumbnails? I messed around with it a while back but I go a little crazy with it.. don't really know when to stop so I end up with a bunch of garbage :P

    Tried another head
    the right brain shift happens so easy.
    i could go on with the details bu i think i'll start hair and then move onto a full body practice for this.

    Should be a fun thing to do...looking forward to doingn hard surface with the junkion

    More alchemy drawings,
    When it comes to stopping i tend to get scared or testy or i get that "ok thats enough" going on in the back of my head.

    Again, What a great tool.
    Getting faster, spending way less time on the tech side of things..the worries of Base topology and uvees that work...all gone.

    Thanks a lot guys!
    the comments really help.
    I am getting more comfortable with the tools and i find them to be so refreshing.
    a quick polypaint...didn't know it was gonna be that easy, very happy with the results
    i really tried my best to avoid diving in....(don't be that guy!)
    I thought of every excuse why not to start due to my fears and previously failed attempts in previous versions.....but i eventually found myself faced with nothing else left to do.
    glad i didn't let it win

    I so need a new technique for hair creation...if anyone out there knows of one and would like to share PLEASE do so.
    for the moment i think I'll try a "Jake's fortune" style when i get a chance but i need to focus on some different things to stay fresh and keep interest high.

    soon enough with a lil more familiarity i feel i could start making some thumbs into actual 3d models or 3d sketches. the eventual goal ..treat it like a true sketch/sculpt book. 21st century indeed

    BTW ...love how this site functions

    ZBrush-Document.jpg

    So i started a new body and the results developed quickly.
    first female I've done in Zbrush...the fastest TOO ...was very worried (and still are) about the facial outcome as im still not comfortable with my process in this tool. all about confidence and refernce there...i need to catch myself when i hit those figure 8 moments where i get nowhere and cant decide on a direction.
    those go away with exp and confidence me thinks.

    She's come out a lil better than expected thus far....she's a lil hard but she's a master of magnetism fer cryin out loud ...lol no excuses get it right!!
    hers another alchemy i did for her.

    still much to go

    think imma raid the fridge for ice cream while i watch the wizards last 3.1 seconds of this pitiful season....nevermind.

    God of war time instead

    Default Cheney pic?

    Could you tell me what software you are using to allow you to "pin" a picture of Cheney up in a Zbrush window. Seems like a great reference tool.
    Thanks

    sorry for the late reply bignewf.

    The thumbnail viewer is called ACDSee Classic 1.0
    I just placed it in overlay mode so it would stay.
    I did get interface issues from time to time however. that being said...when it works...it works great.

    some quick sketches to warm me up from my 4 day slumber.... cant do that often...time is $$$$.
