So, I decided that this place is better for posting WIPs than gallery :)
drgnclw He's also going to look into the notifications by the way 😃👍🏻
smurfmier1985 That was the first thing I checked.
smurfmier1985 not sure what one needed to be on. The first 3 where active. Last one I just activated. That was turned off for me.
nekronavt Oh my Lord you are a godsend for sharing those materials, thank yooooooooou! I'm gonna learn a lot by picking these apart, thanks again! Really looking forward to your next project too, so I'll definitely be keeping an eye on you.
yyukinoh1989 I think you checked the wrong tab, there are only 3 options in the right privacy center tab (it's the first tab you see when you click 'privacy center'):
The middle one needs to be turned on, "Message Permissions".
smurfmier1985 yeah, it's turned on for me.
thecabbagedetective glad you find it usefull!
smurfmier1985 i indeed was in the wrong place xD message permissions was on already :) thanks for the help :D
nekronavt drgnclw yyukinoh1989 Thanks for the answer all! I'm going to tell the web dev.
Almost finished first part of realistic character modeling course. Palms, feet, ears and final polishing are left and next week I'll do character blocking. I have a nice concept from ArtStation I'm planning to use for this character. Suzanne on guard of SFW content here.
And a bit of personal news. There is a high chance, that in January I'll start attending a course about character modeling in my local learning center here in Minsk. I'm highly aimed to get into the industry as a character artist, so I'll learn ZBrush and Max/Maya. But that no means that I'm abandoning Blender. Not at all! And of course, that will not affect my presence here :)
nekronavt dude, you've got some sculpting skills! This looks amazing already! Especially the Suzanne's of course 😛
I thinks that's great news! This character thingie seems to be really your thing 😊
Can't wait to see what kind of awesome things you'll be creating next year!!
smurfmier1985 thank you, I'll try not to disappoint :)
nekronavt wow really great sculpt amazing work love all those details you put in.
nekronavt Damn that's some high quality sculpting there, you been doing that for long? The only body sculpt I remember from you was the demon, so if this was a second attempt of sorts you knocked it out the park.
yyukinoh1989 thank you!
thecabbagedetective well, that demon wasn't the first humanlike and I wasn't tried to be accurate with anatomy on it.
I tried to sculpt anatomy even before I found CGCookie and started blender and modeling seriously. Most of the tries just went to recycle bin.
All this human sculpting stuff relies more on anatomy knowledge than on digital sculpting skills, so I'm staring at the anatomy book at least half an hour a day and constantly repeating.
A bit of history:
First ever try. Did it in ZBrush in March of 2017 but then I gave up this idea for almost a year. I never learned anatomy before and just relied on references.
This was next attempt in January of 2018. Started to learn anatomy, so this guy is not as creepy as previous. And it's Blender now.
I even retopologized him (with a horrible wireframe of course) and had some fun with rigging and posing.
And this one was the last attempt before I found CGCookie in April of 2018. You can find this zombie guy in my CGCookie gallery but without a coat and cape.
And then there was a demon, a girl with a horned mask (also in my gallery).
And here we are.
nekronavt Wow, you've improved a lot since you first started with this! Just keep at it and I'm sure you'll get there. Your passion will take you places 😄🚀
Done with the first stage.
Now I want to turn this lady into this character
Concept art by Maryna Shcherbakova
nekronavt That concept art is wickedly awesome! Looking forward to seeing this one evolve 😄
Had a one day off yesterday and back to work again.
nekronavt That's looks very close to the concept art, nice! Looking forward to seeing this one evolve 😊
