Here is a quick composite of several materials, some color work, and some paintover work on top of the previous post's model. As a test, it was pretty remarkable how fast it is to get lighting, color, etc, blocked in. I still have to play with finding the right balance of painted verus sculpted so that the piece does not feel like a painted over model and more like a well lit painting.
I decided to dig deeper into zbrush this weekend and try something that is not an alien. Normally, I figure I can draw or paint something faster than bothering with a sculpt, but I wanted to challenge myself to create a human-based sculpt related to a story I'm working on. I did some ideations of busts from imagination, then chose a few to take further using reference. I then chose a final head and tried my hand at a sculpt. It was fun and I learned a lot, but obviously I have a whole lot to learn. I definitely could continue with the sculpt to make it feel more like the drawing.
I am going to continue playing with this and try a few other experiments. Hopefully they will yield interesting results.
