    (Did this at lunch before I saw your comment, but it works, so hey.)

    They've been all bipedal so far because they are actually all part of the same project. I've basically given myself a design brief of "FPS Enemy, Humanoid Alien, No Guns". And also experimenting with process at the same time. Once I get one I like, I'm gonna do it up in ZBrush.

    Hah, nice! Zbrush's interface still gives me nightmares, but your aliens are well suited for sculpting. Are you planning to do a refined turnaround of whatever you pick?

    I like the spider, he's suitably spidery.

  • SublimusSublimus regular Registered User regular
    Yeah, ZBrush is kind of a nightmare. I have an expert in the office though, so that will help! May or may not do a turn around, not sure. Their kind of boring, but if I think I have to I will haha.

    Here are some crazy colors! Probably too over the top, but it was fun.

    two more aliens, and a photobash head. I'm going to do some headdress designs on top of it.

    I suggest moving out of painting in symmetry after you hit a certain point with rendering, for human faces at least. Faces are more imperfect and uneven than we perceive, so the perfection creates uncanny feelings when you look at it.

    @Iruka You know, i don't really see it, but others have said it too, so I'll just paint on top a bit to break it up.

    Messed around with ZBrush and modo in-between overwatching today. much to learn here.

    An easy exercise is to take a picture of your own face (or take any picture of a person that's normally recognizable to you) that's as straight on as possible and mirror the sides. Some people have fairly symmetrical faces, but you'll usually always get an odd variation between the two mirrored versions of their face, and the original.

    Female celebrity photos with their faces all blown out are probably the place where you'll see the least variation. I personally think symmetry in faces makes them a bit stiff.

    Well I didn't want to necro post this thread, but the doodle thread was moving too slow!

    Threw this together by bashing together a few sketches I had done. Just trying to upgrade my portfolio real quick before I head to the Schoolism workshop in Seattle this weekend!

    I feel like the squid guy would benefit from a background. There's not a lot going on with the shadow side, and since our value scale is just him, he doesn't fade into the wall the way a good brooding, non-copyright infringing squid person who enjoys eating dark elf brains should.

    @gavindel Thanks! Yeah, the plan is to imply a cave/tunnel type thing.... I think I'll have to do some little thumbnail sketches to figure out an interesting value composition.

  • SublimusSublimus regular Registered User regular
    Figured this is too much for the doodle thread. So here is a mini sketch dump. Supposed to be a post apocalyptic high fantasy mash up.

    Gonna ZBrush one of these, then render it real nice, and paint on top. Any favorites?

  • SublimusSublimus regular Registered User regular
    @SeveredHead Yeah you're right. Not sure If I'm gonna go back into that piece or not, we'll see!

    Here are some recent sketches from the bar. Someone asked if they could have one of them last night, with was flattering I guess.

    On the ones missing feet. I know it looks like I had room, but I ran out of paper IRL.

    @acadia Haha yeah! In my head, he was giving a rousing speech to his evil army. :P
    @SeveredHead Aw thanks! haha

    Did another pass on these old alien heads. And did a color pass on some old characters! (Trying to go back to old work less, after these.)

    Sort of making a fake game in my head about dwarfs, so I'll be making assets for that for a while probably.

  • SeveredHeadSeveredHead regular Registered User regular
    damn it, see, calm down with this rad ass shit. but srly those hands are great, overlong and bulky but not too much like a creature, thats a tough balance to hit.. cause you dont want a demon dude with human looking hands, but if you go to far on the beast side then i mean he cant pick stuff up

  • SublimusSublimus regular Registered User regular
    @bowen @SeveredHead Thanks so much!! I lose faith in my shit while I'm making it, so it's always nice to hear other people still like it haha.

    Not a ton of work, because I was in Seattle for a week.

    Getting a little deeper into ZBrush. Here is my first test using subtools, so I can render different materials

    SubTool_RenderTest.png

    A March of Robots sketch that I decided was prime for some 3D. This is my first ever serious ZBrush sculpt. Got the Volumes blocked in, now to split it up into a hundred sub tools and refine!!

    Also I've been spamming the photo thread, so feel free to check that out too haha.

    Back on the Moria shit.


    First pass on a logo. Needs more work, but it's fine as a temp thing.

    I don't think the leg on the R fits with the vibe of the logo but otherwise I like the logo.

    @Doodmann Thanks! I'll take a look at maybe shortening it, but it's otherwise pretty in line with the LOTR logo

    lightbox_99960_1456795722.jpg

    Fair, but the lotr is more of a general high fantasy type logo where this should probably look more dwarven?

    As it stands it looks more general adventure type or even a little bit of a pirate vibe.

    The current goal is to just straight rip the logo style so it's an instant association. :P

    But! Like I said, this is just first pass/temp. So I may play with a more dwarven treatment when I muck with it again!
