Clay Sculpting - Alien

Hear it is so far, it still needs a lot of work but I really do need it to dry first.

Clay Sculpting - Adding Detail

Starting to get used to the tools so I've added some details in, but I think I need to let this dry before added any more.

Clay Sculpting

Alan suggested to me some time ago to start modelling in clay and add it to my pipeline. I bought clay and tools yesterday and set myself up a work area with a stand. So far this is my first ever attempt at sculpting, the hardest thing I've found is keep it symmetrical. This is still a work in progress and I'll post more pictures as I progress.

Mudbox - Refining

Ok, I've gone back over this to make it look a little less monkey-like and more reptilian.

Minor project

For the minor project I'm looking at a character design of something sci-fi/horror. I've been looking at some of the character of Lovecraft as a possibility but am really needing to narrow down to 1 character idea and a setting to put it in. Over the weekend I will endeavour to finalise an idea.

Mudbox - Getting Started

This morning has been an introduction into Mudbox. I've used Z-Brush previously and found that Mudbox is much easier to get to grips with. I started sculpting from the base head that comes with Mudbox and created a creatures head with skin detail etc. Unfortunately Mudbox crashed before I could save it out so I haven't got an image to post :(

EDIT: I thought I'd get back into Mudbox after it crashed and have another play around, I'm getting to the point that I don't think I'll go back to Z-Brush again :)
