    The patterns on the robe are a nice touch, this looks great. The bg is a bit off but if you obsess over it too much you'll never get anything else done.
    so much to learn...

    Ok here's my next piece. Its based on one of my favorite Samwise sketches. Playing around with props and trying to practice poly painting and sculpting together.

    Looking great. This is one of my favorite techniques to use as a base.

    Update on the brace. Cant really figure out what to do with the ropes that bind the brace. Coz I can't really make out what material it's suppose to be in the sketch.
    Oh and thanks Hosch, yeah I like the way you're texturing your character. Are you using any photographic elements or is that all poly painted?

    I am starting with a photopaint as a base to get my detail sculpt and a base color to sample from vs. alphas only as I find it more uniform in direction while being more random in sculpt. Then I use Tool>Masking>Mask by Cavity back and forth to do my polypainting. Will eventually be doing a step by step with screens or a short video on something like an axe head or something.

    Forgot to mention, that as a start on the sculpt I will take the Tool>Masking>Mask by Intensity and then inflate or deflate to get my subtle details to start working with. I am not keeping much of the actual geometry once I finish painting because I would be over 150m polys with all of my subtools if I did, but the "essence" is left I think by doing it at higher levels then reducing it down and deleting higher. Good enough for camera distance/angles I think.

    Default Psylocke

    Geez, Can't believe it's been ages since i've posted. That's gotta stop. oh well here's a sketch of psylocke i've been working on for about 2 weeks. I think it's coming along but again it's the final presentation which always brings me down. I'm not sure what I even want to do with this. This was just meant to be a quick sculpt and polypaint exercise that got out of hand.

    Her costume is based of Adam Hughes very scantily clad sketch for some convention.

    very nice flow, especially on the hair and even though the pose and everything is comic book style she's got something surprisingly natural.

    Very sexy! Love her pose, her face, and her hairstyle. I just wish her head were a little smaller proportioned like the altered version on the right. She would look more heroic that way I think.

    Dunno what she'll fight with more? Bad guys or her outfit?

    The model of Ramuh is quite excellent!
