    Default Floyd's Sketchbook

    Hi, I'm Floyd, and I want to improve my artistic ability and confidence with ZBrush. I attempt busts and heads mostly as I work on understanding human form, but I'd like to explore full character design at some point. I come here on a regular basis to view all the wonderful art, so thank you for being such an inspiration, and for any advice offered.

    I've been sweating over this female anatomy study for a few days - dreading the face even more. More often than not I feel like I just get lucky with anatomy even though I use refference - gets frustrating.

    Took a break with a fatty head last night.

    I'm not successful at making a good female. This looks good proportionally and subtle features for the face look good as well.

    Hey Floyd!
    Nice start , i like the guy with the mowhawk and the female torso best
    Concerning the full body female - i think there are some proportional issues, the arms look too long to me, and possibly thighs and upperarms could have less volume, maybe even the whole leg itself is a bit too big
    Hope it helps

    remcv8: Thank you kindly.

    schiefer: Hi! I noticed those issues and some others this morning - thank you for the crits. Tried to fix her up a little with those in mind.

    I produced a nice base for a head so I had fun with that last night after doing more work on the female study. I feel that her legs are long still...?

    Rodion: Thank you! Your sketchbook is awesome!

    Adee: Good advice, thank you.

    More work on the female study today. Heavy re-work of the face and some body shapes. Tried to accentuate some of her curves as well.

    masterpiece: Thank you very much for the comment.

    I've not used the polish and planer brushes too much so I wanted to experiment after playing around with a few polyspheres. Came up with some interesting shapes!

    Lil' turnaround and one BPR render with shadows, AO, and a bit of Photoshop mess...

    Had some fun with that study and made, to the best of my current ability, the Simbul for a friend of mine today. The Simbul is a favorite character of his from the Forgotten Realms universe.

    Hope you like!
