Hi guys! Thank you for the support ^__^ I've been having some trouble the past few days regarding a virus on the laptop I'm working on...so my pace has slowed quite a bit. I will finish this challenge but it might be a week till I update again. I'm also having trouble saving my recordings of the sculpt, I've lost a few video files because they go corrupt, so I'm recording as much as possible when I do sculpt. I'm also going to try and enter the snow creature challenge, since I only have 10 hours max for this and I've got some spare time.

Here's only about 2 hours of total work, 8 to go. I really hope I don't have anymore issues. Focus is mainly in the overall form and face. I'm going to create the hands separate, since zspheres were not very nice to me. Colours are not polypaint, just photoshop, so you can get an idea of the concept to it. Let me know what you think so far

Sweet

Stoneking- Once again Stoneking you are the MAN! I saw the tutorial and normally this would be great but since im not as fast or used to using it ill just wind up wasting more time then it would be worth doing becuase I'm already at 2 hours with the base mesh and I cant even use the thing for sculpting since I screwed making the topology. Its going to be faster for me to remake the base mesh in 3dsmax and just use my old base mesh as a reference. I really appreciate the help you have been fastest person to ever re spawn to my questions since I've started doing the monthly sculpts. I did find the tuptiral very useful becuase I was not aware of that tool at all and I can use it to make base meshes out of some high sculpted models I did in the past.
Thanks a lot for the help

So, first I did a pretty vague humanoid basemesh. Threw it into zbrush and kinda sketched around. It's sort of a mix between a goat and a chimp. Next is to go back to maya and fix some topology stuff. Nothing major.

Comments and critiques please!

I am about to enter this challenge but i have some doubts regarding that camtasia recording idea.
Is that really necessary to because it slows down my system and prevents me to sculpt fluent. Also if recording i should stop all my PM activities as well as internet surfing, searching for references while sculpting and so on.......hmmmmm.............
.........that does not work for me.
So again is it really necessary?
........................................
.......................................
Ok, i see this question has been answered in previous post, sorry.
