Let’s see, things are moving forward, so here is just a quick update. I’ve been working on finetuning my sculpting and get some finer details in place. Here is a render of where I am at the moment. I made the render above in Modo by taking my low resolution base mesh and exporting a…

Destrachan – Made a Decent UV Map

When I was halfway through the sculpting phase I decided to improve my UV Layout for my darling. Originally I had settled on letting ZBrush create the UV map for me, using GUV tiles. But then I thought Nah, they don’t look very pretty. ZBrush GUV tiles does create a very nice distortion free UV…

Destrachan – Sculpting the Evil

Time for a new Destrachan update. Another completely unrelated project with a tight deadline came in between, but today I’ve continued working on my Destrachan creature. The project that came in between is finished, and I’ll be able to post about it in two weeks when I’m allowed to publish it. Anyway, continuing from the…

Destrachan – Something Evil Has Begun

I haven’t blogged anything since I got back from my vacation. Things have just been crazy since I got back, which made my personal projects suffer a bit. I’m gonna get back on track now though. To get my juices flowing and get back in the groove I started a new project today (again… hehe)….

Still Operating on Kat but Here is a Hand Update

But here’s a quick update until I’m completely finished with her. Aiming on tomorrow, but you never know. Anyway, here’s an OpenGL screenshot of her new hand…

Katana – Gets New Anatomy and Topology

There has passed some time since my last update of my character Katana. Last time I posted a progress of her I was in the texturing, shading and hair phase. Since then I have improved my skills so much in topology and anatomy so I just couldn’t stand to see her mesh anymore, so I…

Pin-Up Morning Doodle

Sunday morning. I woke up early today, and just felt like spending this lovely morning doodling around a bit in ZBrush. This is what came out after a quick session. It’s based on the character from my last work in progress post which I’ve been working on in LightWave 3D. I just exported her out…

The Art of the Female Anatomy

Lately I’ve been dedicating almost all my polygon modeling time towards the art of the female form when I haven’t been ZBrushing or recovering from dental surgery mayhems. This character is going to turn out to be something really special, and I’ll have her finished right next to my Kat(ana) character. I just wanted to…

Let’S Give Kat a Sword

There’s been lot’s of ZBrushing in the log lately, but I’ve continued working on among other things my Katana character piece at the same time. So while I was in LightWave 3D today modeling on Kat we talked about accessories. Yes, you do actually have to talk to your characters while modeling them. How else…
