    Sorry, I thought that I had to wait for the thread to be validated or something :s

    Below is a collection of some recent sculpts. The Zealot and Hydralisk sculpts are fan art inspired by starcraft 2.
    I also decided to try sculpting my first 'proper' head. I was inspired by 'Blondys' brilliant evil eyes from The Good the Bad and the Ugly

    I am going to re-top the cowboy and try to improve on my texturing skills in zbrush and photoshop.

    Any crits are welcome as I can simply load up the scults and re work them.

    Ohhh Also I am sculpting the female Navi (Neytiri) from Avatar at the moment so keep your eyes peeled
    Thanks

    Heres the Neytiri sculpt that I have been working on for the last few days. I made a quick pollypaint just to see what the character was looking like, couldnt resist xD

    Ill start refining it tomorrow.

    Any Ideas for the next sculpt?
    Was thinking along the lines of female anatomy...

    Cheers

    Hey guys I have finally found out how to display the images in the actual thread rather than those rubbish thimbnails. I have created new renders of my current work , I hope you like it

    The majority of my summer work is based on other peoples concepts just to get me used to sculpting in ZBrush.
    I started by sculpting some of my favourite models from my favourtie game Starcraft.

    hydralisk.jpg

    After sculpting the alioen forms I decided it was time to attempt human anatomy so i decided to sculpt a cowboy bust.
    The cowboy is my own design influenced by clint eastwood.

    cowboy copy.jpg

    This is an altered version of the cowboy created as a concept for a mod that I am working on as a side project

    Once I attempted male anatomy I tried modelling Neytiri from Avatar (Not very female like I know haha)

    Let me know what you think

    Default Stinger Head

    It's safe to say that I havent updated my sketch book in a while...
    I've been busy sorting out my computer as the power supply decided to break.

    ANYWAY

    I am close to completing Scott Spencers Character Creation book. I only have the Displacement maps section to go which looks the hardest

    Here is the Stinger Head from chapters 3,4 and 5
    I hope you like it

    smallerstingerhead.jpg


    I am also working through his Human Anatmy book also. It will be a while before my next update as I havent even finished the head yet haha

    I really suggest anyone whose new to ZBrush to pick up Scott Spencers Character Creation , I cant actually believe how useful it has been with all the litte free brushes, videos and models!
    He needs to hurry up and bring out some more books xD
