Fat bloke head

Fat blokes head sculpting, fairly happy with the level of detail so far. keeping the beard and sideburns as seperate models and not sculpted on as I want a proper hairy feel to them. Might take photographs of my own face to use as textures for this guy then use Spotlight to apply them. ( I'd usually just take a grab of the UVs into Photoshop and paint them. )

Found a new shader for Zbrush which shows the highlights and creases to a better effect.

'MAHmc Modeling Matte.ZMT', found on the Zbrush forum.

Personal project: Helgar Bust.

First modelling pass in Maya on a Helgar bust for Killzone2. The head will be based on Randy Coulture since he has an interesting shaped head, perfect for a Helgar trooper.

Maus Tank

Something none-character based this time, a WW2 German Maus which is being built for a small live action movie. I've taken a number of liberties which the 'rivet counters' might spot.
The tank only appears in a mid-distance shot, crashed through a wall and on fire. So my detailing will no doubt be lost lol.

Portrait Sculpting Book

A recent purchase: Portrait Sculpting by Philippe Faraut, a very good reference book. I've always been keen to expand my 3D sculpting into traditional clay sculping with the aim of improving my sculpting. Working in Zbrush doesn't get your 'hands dirty' and it's far to easy to get bogged down with the fine details and forget the form. Plus chucking wet clay about is a lot of fun!

Killzone lifesize

A blast from the past ( well last year ) Fullsize Helgar figure which was in need of much TLC, rebuild, repaint and adding LEDs to the eyes including a portable power source.

Nice to be working on something none computer related.
