    • SO I have barely posted here as of later, but I have been working. Just not the way I use to. These were done in ZBrush and modeled up from the ground up. Spheres and cylinders worked up from the base up.



      I tried a few brushes on the Hulk Head to put some details in.

        • That's very cool. I'll have to look into Zbrush, especially for designing original characters. Can you pose the figures?

            I know it is possible. There are multiple ways of doing it, but once you finish building the base model you can then tweak it to pse it anyway you want. Though you will then have to retweak the sculpt.

                Oh this dog is learning a lot of new tricks m8. It is a lot of fun though. Here are some changes bulking up the body based on some input from Smitty.

                        Thanks for the encouragement and the critiques I am working on the base models and then I am going to start posing them so I need people to catch me when I foul up ...lol.

                          • I think you are losing sight of the overall picture by concentrating on details first. I've seen a lot of accomplished z brush artists develop head and bust shots. What's happening your work is that the proportions are all over the shop. It's a wip, I understand but at the same time you need to keep in mind the relation in size his head has to his torso, etc.

                            If it helps to sketch it out first, do that, or else you will get lost in detailing. Hulk can have the most exaggerated proportions but it's kind of jarring when done semi realistically. Hence the Avenger's depiction of the Hulk as opposed to the 2008 version.

                            Cool to see you trying this out.

                              Hey Dri thanks for the comments. Yea there are definitely sme proportion issues going on that I have to fix. The funny thing is I hadn't intended to take this to an end point really..... It actually just started off with me fooling around and messing with the proportions of this sculpt



                              Which it itself was just suppose to be this head study.



                              And well it just ballooned, but the basic detail was already there as I started to add more and more. You are totally right about the proportions though and I will be adjusting them as I go. It is one of the reasons that there so many layers there so I can adjust them as I go. In actuality I am not going to treat this much more than a gesture sketch level of detail (other than the head and neck area) with the basic shapes and anatomy roughed in because once I start to pose the model a lot of the REALLY fine detail would just be distorted. Right now the whole point of the T-pose I am working on is to do exactly what you are suggesting, get the proportions down. I am learning this as I go, and trying to do It right, build everything up from the basic shapes and learn. Going to try to do this better that I did when I started here initially....lol.

                              Thanks again for the comments Dri.
