Figure Sculpting Class Week 3

Worked on arms in different positions dealing with twisting of the forearm.  I didn't really spend any time on the hand, because the hand is the focus of next week.

Cicada Soldier

The cicadas have been buzzin in Texas and I've found a couple of their nymph shells in my yard.  I daydreamed about some kind of anthropomorphized cicada flying out of a robotic cicada shell, and this is what I came up with.  It seemed much cooler in my head.  I drew it in pen and ink and scanned it and colored it in photoshop.  I also included a crappy pic of the drawing with the shells I found.

Figure Sculpting Class Week 2

here are some more torso studies dealing with rotating the arms 180 degrees.  We did 5 different poses on different layers.  Learned a bit about layers in zbrush also.  if i did this again the back and arms would be a lot better.  there's also a crappy zbrush animation of it blending through the different layers here.

Figure Sculpting Class

I'm taking Scott Eaton's Digital figure sculpting class.  The first week's assignment was to do a male and female torso sculpt based on some photos he took. It's cool to sculpt a posed figure for a change, even if its just a torso.  i generally have sculpt characters standing up straight with their arms at their side.  

the female one is here, i don't remember blogger's policy on nudity.
