Hi everyone! I posted this on the WAYWO thread but no replies so I figured I would post it here as well and see if anyone got any tips/crits and suggestions. I hope this is allowed! :poly122:
I was thinking about doing one of the 4 horsemen of the apocalypse so in order to get some inspiration I read the book of revelations. While reading I ended up thinking the Lamb of god was an even more interesting character. Here´s the passage that made me change direction:
7 Horns and eyes? Challenge accepted!
So I went and did a sketch before bed:
I wasn't very happy with any of those designs. I looked and searched for inspirational images, references and mood-board of what the character should look like but unfortunately nothing struck me so I went to bed feeling defeated.
This morning, I looked at my previous day work and the thought of starting over felt really un-inspiring so I fired up Zbrush and started sculpting away:
After a while longer, I defined a bit more the face, eyes and mouth. So heres a little update:So my question(s) is(are):
How common and how bad
is it to go O´Reilly and "Do it live!
" when it comes to sculpting or sketching characters? As you can see, the sculpt doesnt really look like any of the sketches although it has the main ideas in place over there.
Also, any crits, ideas and suggestions? Would like to do a nice piece so any advice is more than helpful.
