    Default Capa's Sketchbook - Welcome!

    So I finally decided to get a thread together with some of my stuff. But it just occurred to me that all my material is on the computer downstairs and I am feeling particularly lazy right now. So in lieu of posting everything - I will post a picture of my current WIP - (still needs a lot of love!) and I will post everything else tomorrow if I get around to it! Enjoy!

    If ya got comments - don't be afraid to post 'em! Constructive criticism is never a bad thing! Cheers!

    I have the turntable for this if I could just figure out how to post my youtube videos on here!

    looking forward to your final sculpts. maybe reducing the intensity of the octopus creature would help to view better the skin details.

    Not sure I quite understand ... lower the intensity? You mean perhaps use a soft matcap instead of the full on bright purple paint job? Thanks for the comment though! Constructive criticism is never a bad thing!

    New character. Got the body done as well -but will post that once it gets a bit more formed in. Gonna be a demon - but I need some decent ideas for what to do with those rings around his neck... or - a different idea of how to hide the seam that will occur between the neck and body. Since the head is a different subtool than the body - without retopologizing and stiching the neck and body together is there a good way to hide that seam??? My only idea at the moment is the rings - or maybe model out a cloak or something... I dunno. Anyway - there it is! Opinions greatly appreciated!

    Default Oh how my mind wanders...

    Funny how I never seem to finish any of these. Gotta work on that!

    To give credit where it is due - the last pic there is inspired by a sketch from Endling (deviantart)... And I used the same idea with the arms when creating the eye monster there. Also the body for Rosie was a female body that someone posted on here - can't for the life of me find the dang post at the moment but as soon as I do you can be sure I will give credit! All of these are perpetual works in progress so as always - C&C appreciated!!!

    I have about 8 wips right now. One of these days I might actually finish something.

    New sculpt - tried to incorporate pieces from a lot of different aliens that I have seen floating around. Not literally - ya know - on the interwebs... The major influence here was the sculpt by Jordu Schell - and also the one by Dustin Brown... but I tried to give this guy a little bit more of a human quality in his face rather than go full on alien. I might do a bit of texturing tomorrow - we'll see. Anyway - C&C is always wonderful - if for no other reason than to let me know once and for all that its not just me that is seeing my posts. Also - obviously I am no expert - so suggestions of areas that I need to work on would be awesome. Cheers!

    Keeping on trucking with this guy... didn't have much time today - Not really sure how to improve on him. Some suggestions from the wonderful talent here would be great!

    Hey Sickness - Thanks for your comment! I was beginning to think that everyone on here was purposefully ignoring this thread! The Eye creature isn't the most original of all characters out there - but it was fun sketching it out! I got to looking and couldn't find any of your work - Is it just me or...? Get some posted man! I'd love to see it!

    Lot more work trying to detail this guy out... Would be really nice to get some feedback here - I've looked at this thing so long now that I'm not sure what changes would look good or not... Thanks in advance!

    Hehe, funny design on the last character, keep sculpting

    And no, your stuff isn't bad, but there is an incredible flow of work here at zbc, so the posts that doesn't stand out don't get that much attention.
    I often read threads that I like without commenting, because I don't have time to comment on everything that I like, then I would be posting all day long

    But keep sculpting and get better and better, soon you will get more posts. It's not easy being a beginner.

    Hi Capa
    I was just thinking that on that last one that your working on, ..if you were to take it further, you might use the shape of the head and face as a stepping stone to morph/sculpt it into a cuttle fish or squid type of creature..It has that basic shape in place already..Wouldn't be to had to modify it and take it even further...maybe even a natalus type of squid, where the back of what is now the skull shape, spirals/curles into the back of the neck type of thing.
    Anyway, just throwing your way, a couple of thoughts that crossed my mind as I was looking at that latest piece of yours, that may be useful to you, if you decide to take that piece further.
    THANKS for stopping by my sketchbook thread by the way...Really appreceate the thoughts that you expressed and wrote..THANKS
