This is a good place to dump some of the Zbrush/Mudbox quick-sculpt sketches I've been doing over the last couple of months...
These were two quick sculpts I did in Zbrush3, about 2 hours each, from the low poly base mesh. Pictured inset.....

Couple more that I did.
I started to experiment with other tools in Zbrush for these, apart from the 'standard' and 'bulge' brushes.
Started using 'pinch' and 'flatten'
2 hours each for sculpts from the low poly...

A few more...
These two started from a 5 sided cube, took about 2 hours each in Mudbox/Zbrush.
And put with a few props I had....

I love it.
The general hits with a special feel, the hard edges and blocky feel make him so much colder and bitter looking.

Great sculpts, thanks for the play-by-play :)

wizo, Jimmies_the_squirrel, Kovac: Thanks for the comments, appreciated.
Japhir: Ha! Ha! Thanks, I never knew who King Zora was until you mentioned him (I've never owned a Nintendo :() Does look a bit like him though!
peppi: Thanks man, it's nice to have place to dump all the non-finished work that you have.:)
This is another speed sculpt that I recently did. About 3 and a half hours from the low poly. Featured inset.....
Loosely based on a Steve West creature sculpture.

This one's not a speed sculpt, took a bit longer, done in mudbox...

i love the contrast between sharp lines and smooth surfaces in your sculpts. the old guy is great!
funny you didn't know Zora :). i thought you based your sculpt off of him. i guess cool designs are universal ;).

Hey, Cheers all...

This one was a texture test, mostly for me to try out Maya's 3D paint tool, as most of the base texture was done in Maya.
Finished in Photoshop...

A quick practice head I did a while back.....
01-02-2010, 09:07 AM
From the low-poly; took around 2 and a half hours for main sculpt and 30 mins for details...
The process stages...
looks great, you are pumping these out very fast! Any tips on the brushes you use?
01-03-2010, 01:34 PM
Mostly use the 'Standard' brush for the main sculpting; the 'Claytubes' brush to add mass and the 'Pinch' and 'Flatten' brushes to sharpen detail.
I try and keep it as simple as possible!
01-03-2010, 02:15 PM
love his collar (well all the little hard edge details he's got on). Gonna hafta try that sometime coz it looks awsome ^_^
hope you get time for more speed sculpts man
