About a year ago I started teaching myself Zbrush because I wanted to create characters.
After about 3 months, I started a university course that is strictly environment art, and haven't had a chance to do any character practice or anatomy studying since.
I've now decided to try and start learning this again during my freetime/downtime and wanted to post what I'm working on and hopefully get advice as I go along.
This is the last sculpt I did before I stopped last year. I was attempting to do a likeness sculpt of Lucy Liu, but hadn't really done enough anatomy study to get the fundamentals down of the face. I think I worked on this for about 3 weeks intermittently.
This is the first head sculpt of any kind I've done since last July. I think it shows. I don't really know what I was going for, but this was as much as I could get done within my 1 hour lunch break. This was done by following a Youtube video on how to begin making a head in Zbrush.
40 minute Lunchbreak on day 2. I've apparently developed a fear of mouths because both times I've done this now I've completely avoided that region.
I also keep making the cheekbones really exaggerated.
This is my latest sculpt. Again I squeezed this in during a 1 hour lunchbreak, this time looking at a diagram of a skull and trying to replicate it by eye.
I genuinely tried to pay closer attention to anatomy and accuracy this time, but I think I haven't studied it enough to really get the landmarks and proportions right yet. Struggling to figure out the best method to study. I'm not very expirienced at drawing, but I think from today forward I'm going to attempt one sculpt and one drawing every lunchbreak, and a little bit in the evening if I can make time.
Any advice/critique on this latest attempt would be amazing.
