    In the spirit of actually drawing, here's something I whipped up tonight. I want to color it, maybe. But I'm a little worried about composition, since I'm not so hot at that. Also, I want his shirt.

    I'm also going to say that the foreshortening on the [our] right arm isn't working. I think maybe it's that the point where the hand meets the wrist isn't defined at all on the pinky side.

    so this guy can hit anyone anywhere from any angle, eh?

    I downloaded the free trial for Zbrush and decided to model a Kroot's head as a way of seeing how awesome the program is. I've got a basic low-poly version in 3DSMax mostly finished up,

    krootlowpoly.png

    and I was wondering if you duders who've used Zbrush before could give me some pointers on working the program. Do I need to work at the low-poly version much more before I export it?

    Worstcase: love the doodles, is that just markers? birds are hella fun to draw...

    Hmm... I'll need to get some refs. I did that arm at least three times in three different angles and that was the most natural looking I could get. Not sure how else to define it without it looking like it shouldn't be there. I think the only thing really there is some sort of tendon.

    Meh, I roleplay, so this is a pretty old character. Technically, he can control light and shadow. He had a split personality, and his other half could jump through shadows. It was overcome with a near-death experience, so now he can make shadows and jump through them. So, basically, yes, he can punch anyone he can see. But I think he'd drop them in a hole first.

    Whats funny, I had to use dictionary.com to figure out what two of those words you just used...damn my vocabulary.

    But cha cha. I have trouble with focal point/composition. This was spread out over two pages in my sketchy book. And I wanted to draw as fast as I could. I was having some fun.

    Someone actually told me I need to try to use more solid black and white with my drawings, which is true. Its just hard to use more solid black and white with a ball point pen.I needz a marker.

    How would you vary values? Pwwwweeeze elborate for meh so I be bettur.

    I think you just answered your own question there.

    Buy some Sharpie Chisel Tips and black out some things and leave some pure white and bob's your uncle.

    I don't really know if bob is in fact your uncle but "bob" is a fairly common name so the chances are pretty good.

    Lol, My dead granddad was named bob, and my mom called him Boboso in spanish.

    But word, I'll be using more solid black and white, I'm looking up on this rule of thirds right now.

    Actually, with a ballpoint it's quite easy to vary values: you can actually get heavier/darker lines vs. lighter/thinner lines due to pressure, so you can control it. Focus on variation of density.

    Here's a page of stuff I did around a year ago, ballpoint on notebook paper. It should give you an idea of what I mean.

    Not really. You could drop that into Z and up the poly count and go to town. It's pretty intuitive.. sometimes.

    If you've used any other 3D tool before, it will confuse the hell out of you. It's alright to go in fresh and keep the basic UI mostly on.

    Also, mudbox does a lot of the same things in a more conventional setting.

    2785971133_e9777c379a.jpg

    Yeah, ballpoints are great just because they behave so much like pencil, minus smudging/erasing.

    You don't have to work in solid blacks and whites to place focus, you just need to not cover every single inch in dark scribbles like you are now. As has already been covered, varying pressure with the ballpoint can give you a lot of control over values. Put it some light-sources - which at the moment are completely absent - and shade accordingly and boom, you have a much clearer drawing.

    Also try using more hatching instead of cross-hatching. Cross-hatching when not done well tends to make everything look like a burlap sack. Making all the lines in an area go one direction is a great way to describe the form in addition to laying down value.

    Death Chalupa is a really good example of what I'm talking about. Notice how very few of his hatch-marks overlap. Instead he makes groups of lines. Their direction gives you a better sense of the shape of things, and doesn't flatten out the form like overlapping cross-hatching marks tend to. He does overlap a little, but it's only used in small areas and still services the overall goal of describing the form.

    Basically the lesson is stop being so uniform.
