    Default talster's Z4 sketchbook

    Thank you Pixologic for ZB4!!!

    I've been challenging myself lately to create a bust (or more) a day.

    Please hit me with whatever critique or criticism you can, and I'll do my best to improve. Thanks!

    artstudio3, thanks for your feedback. If you have any opinions on the first two pieces, I'd love to hear. These are all works in progress, so please expect to see updates in the near future

    Here are a few more recent pieces, more stylized than "realistic":

    Thanks KPToons for the citation! I agree, Anthony is super talented.

    Here are some more updates, being a bit more anatomy-focused here.
    Don't hold back that criticism!

    Thank you again Pixologic, ZB4 is crazy awesome Those clip brushes have cut my average sculpting speed in half or more!

    Lately, I'm especially enjoying making likenesses.
