: I guess a little beard could be cool! Might have to add it next time!
: You're right, it is a bit reminiscent of Faun from Pan´s. It was one of the reasons I looked for Robert De Niro frown pics so he wouldn't look so young and joyful like Faun does.
: Could you explain more on the "V" shape? I don't think I quite got it correctly.
: One of my fears was that he would end up looking too much like Faun if he looked younger. Like I mentioned to Perma, I used De Niro as my reference but I might have to try with a cleaner face.
: Thanks. I will have to play with the horns a bit more.
: Thanks! I agree that it looks a tad stiff ATM. I will later on change his posture too. My plan is to sculpt, retopo, texture and pose this fella. But Im not in a hurry, I want to take it nice and slow and make this as good as I can!
Thanks everyone for the nice words and critique! I have to agree with everyone here that the horns do indeed add so thanks to you guys for the tips. Also thanks to nyx, Sukotto
. You guys were right about the horn curl and touching problem. Today I had a couple of hours free so I fired up Zbrush and continued on our lamb guy and I encountered the problem you guys already mentioned. I should always come here first before continuing with my projects. Would have saved some frustration, that's for sure!
So here is what I made today. Unfortunately I am not pleased at all with it. What I did was the following. I masked the areas of the horns and extracted the mesh. Once each set turned into a subtool, I clicked Dynamesh and moved them around a bit. I dont like how "lumpy" and bad it looks. I think it might be better to do a base mesh in Maya, extruding some faces along a curve so I have more control of the curvature of the horns.
Secondly I added the cloth. I did the same as with the horns. I just masked the area and extracted. I went a bit overboard with the wrinkles to the point that this isn't recognizable. A real shame but I guess this is how I learn, by fucking up and doing it again.
So here is today´s "progress"!
I thought it might be good to post here, even though it doesn't look good and I will probably redo it later on. I always wonder if people do have these kind of days but they never post them? Because most of the time people have amazing progress!
Anyway. As always, feel free to tear me a new one! Point out every wrong or anything that I can do better with this piece as I want to make this perfect. This isnt a work or school piece, this is for me to learn and get better.
Have a great rest of Sunday guys!
