Thanks for taking a look!
I will be journalizing my sketches and progress here, I'll be using it as a public space to show my sketches, practice, studies, and some random stuff. I don't mind getting critiqued, just keep it light and friendly; this is just my sketchbook after all :)
A quick sculpt I did one night when I was bored but wanted to get the creative juice flowing.
Male face proportions practice. I wanted to give this sculpt a bit of character, so I experimented with different shapes for the nose, eyes and mouth. There are certainly some things that could be improved, like some of the muscles on the cheeks, so I will be taking these points of improvement to my next practice.
Another quick sculpting practice, this time it's Aku Aku from the Crash Bandicoot games! It was fun to do something more stylized and with bright, popping colours. The shapes and forms are iconic and really nice to work with.
A quick sculpt of some demon, this was more meant as a warm-up. I also wanted to try out some alphas in Zbrush, so I thought this was a nice opportunity to work with it. Even though I made this a while ago, this was my first time trying polypaint in Zbrush.
Sketches for some lunar-themed weapons. Still want to turn at least one of these into a 3D model. I have a cool idea for the shield, where the "backdrop" of the shield is like a starry galaxy shader with no depth.
A quick 3D sketch of a concept I was thinking about for a stylized log.
A 3D sketch of a sniper rifle that I made in 2021, based on a concept I created in 2020. The concept art was created as part of my minor, where I created a cyberpunk/futuristic/dystopian-themed art book. May or may not finish this one day :)
A concept for a cyberpunk cowboy. Haven't touched this project in a while, and there are definitely some parts of the concepts that I would change now. Maybe someday! :D
To keep progress but also to keep myself accounted and responsible, im posting this sketch. I want to make it a 3D exercise, specifically for texturing. So here's the first rough sketch.
More neons on that stand! Please continue with more "moon stuff", love that theme. and if you can make galaxy shader i want one :P
@Hallazeall thanks for your input! and yeah, I'm currently working on the sword as a 3D model, I want to see whether I can make the galaxy shader! :D
A quick sculpt for fun and to stay in shape! I'm practicing stylized hair and this looked like a good opportunity. I saw a lady on Pinterest and I just had to create a sculpt based on her looks (below). ~7 hours
Another stylized hair practice, this time with some semi-curly hair and facial hair! ~8 hours
Did a little sculpt for a friend, they made this cute OC which is a purple one-eyed bird called Julii!
30 min sculpt. i'm trying to focus on getting faster in sculpting humanoid faces!
another 30 min sculpt!
Overwatch head study, with Dva's face as reference. 2hr practice
Elf girl speedsculpt, 3hr practice including polypainting, working from a reference picture
