I'll be starting from today a thread for study, this study is based as a progression study and each step i'll be creating a character in a month or so . Each character I create I'll try to focus on my weakness and topics I must learn and create a great piece of portfolio.
The Steps will be as follows if any anyone want to join:
Step 01: Creating based on a great concept
(Search for a concept you love and create it in full 3D, trying to be as most faithful as possible for the concept, do not change anything match the materials, poses, cameras, and everything.)
Step 02: Choose another concept
(Recreate this concept just like before, remember to focus on the your weakness, this time change something, alter the pose a bit, put a different expression, small changes)
Step 03: Another concept
(Change the pose of the character put a pose you like, an action pose for your warrior, or a sexy pose for the girl.)
Step 04: Choose a character you like
(Get a character you like and put some cool clothes in him, fell free to create a cool cloth or armor)
Step 05: Create a cool character in a striking pose in a amazing clothes/armor
(Your creation now, get crazy, try your best, see during the lasts works what you did best and focus on it, try to create your best art, take some time on this one)
At end of the process you'll have 5 characters for your portfolio, you can compare them and see your growth.
An them star over! Lets do it all Again! Studying, focusing on your weakness, and creating big pieces of portfolio.
This is the process I'll be taking, any one wanting to study with me I'll be honored. If you want to join post on the topic, but we need discipline!!
