I've been busy making a toad.
Here's a few pics of early stages.
Right now it's nearly finished (see next post), and I've combined it with my turtle to create my favorite (and perhaps most bizarre) piece to date, so stay tuned for pics of that in my next post!
|Anatomically fairly accurate zsphere toad armature|
|Armature plus a tiny bit of sculpting converted to a polygon skin|
|More sculpting to create what looks like a dessicated dead toad!|
|Further sculpting, followed by re-meshing (smooths everything out)|
What I like is that I can work in a similar way to my wire and clay approach, and get convincing results.
Plus I can also do things I can't do with wire and clay that make things more efficient.
There's lots of back and forth between my sculpting program and video tutorials on YouTube or Pixologic's website to remind myself how do do things.
But it seems to be working, so I'm happy.
