Further Digital Doodads - Gobo Bust WIP
« on: December 29, 2010, 12:20:13 PM GMT GMT »
To pass the time whilst at work between christmas and the new year I've started a digital gobo bust! based on sketches I did (in turn based on Brian Froud's work) for a goblin range back in the mists of time. Andrew May's gobo thread inspired me!

Lots of detail to go on yet, I'm still a zbrush amateur so every bit is a learning process!





C&C and tips from those in the know welcome!

As in, zbrush sculptors, or goblin anatomists...?  :)

Dunno what I could say.  He's got great structure and character.

Well he's as done as he's getting!

problem I find with a digital sculpt is knowing when to call it a day! I could have gone crazy with the texture on the skin etc but didn't see much point.
Might throw on some colour in the new year. Unlikely it'll be printed/cast either mainly due to the fact that I can't afford it!

Interestingly, this fella may actually see physical form thanks to some wrangling over on the FOD!

THREAD'O'MANCY GO!


Well after what seems like an age this chap is in a mould!




I've not held the cast yet (waiting on delivery) , I'm told he's 70mm ish.
I had my reservations when I saw pics of the print as the stepping looked quite severe, but credit where credits due Eddie (Thantos) over at Zealot seems to know what he's doing with the prints as he's done a top job of cleaning the print and getting it mold worthy!

I think he'll look splendid with a decent paint job, I may even bring my own brushes out of retirement (which would eat further into the sculpting time I don't have...). I think it's the most happy I've been with one of my finished sculpts!

Go buy one http://www.zealotminiatures.co.uk/ so I get paid!

I Don't want to seem like I'm flogging a dead horse, but I think some of these posts may have gotten caught up in the forum hack shuffle!

I've now had the cast, and it's very good! (even if I do say so myself!) Not seen one painted yet and not had a chance to  paint it myself either, but I bet it'll look good!

Twas quite a thrill to actual hold a sculpt that I'd only previously seen in pixels (or Pixols as Zbrush likes to call em!)

My only gripe is that Zealot don't really seem to be doing much in the way of promotion so I cant see my getting any chunky commission cheques in the near future!

Bad time of year - I'll have to count my pennies after all the pressies have been bought.

So feel free to push it here every so often.  It'll remind me. ;)
