I chose to do "Cosmo Kramer" (Michael Richards) as my celeb. We have a total of 5 hours to manipulate the provided basemesh into a cartoon-like sculpt of the celebrity of our choice. Here is my sculpt, 3.5 hours in.

Zombie Update

More work on the Zombie. The next step are:

-add in more bone exposure (spine, clavicles)
-refine decay
-add in more facial details
-experiment with hair options
-poly paint
-displacement map and render in mental ray

I really want to take this to completion as a portfolio piece.

zombie bust WIP

Hey everyone!

I started a Zombie bust today. I am placing bone structures underneath the skin, and then chipping away, using Ryan Kingsliens "Zombie Brush" mainly. I still need to add more detail to the face, and then address the other sections of the bust. I need to build zsphere clavicles and a spine as well, to expose those. But its a fun exercise!

Another gesture study, this time with two figures. The complexity of the poses took a while to sort out, and I need to work on a lot of the anatomy I'm sure. I will be showing this to Ryan in class Friday to see if I can get any tips.

Male Gesture Study

Here is a turntable and images for a male gesture sculpt.

Female Gesture Study

I did a quick 1.5 hour gesture/proportion study tonight. Here are the results. The arm anatomy is all messed up, and the legs could use some more definition, but I do like this, it has a very traditional feel to it I think. Ill probably continue it later tomorrow.
