ello, this is my first post and first entry into any form of competition.

I have chosen 3D total because of all the inspiration that I have drawn from the making of articles and such.

I have been learning Zbrush since around the time of the first DWIV mini challenge so I guess nearly three months now.

Anyways here's something that I was playing with tonight. A horned Lizard called astrabell, he's the familiar to a norm Invoker, haven't really thought much beyond that yet. Not even sure if this is the right idea but my 2D sucks quite badly so I'm just throwing a few concepts up in Zbrush.

I'm just beginning to define the nose and eyes a little better at this point.

I'm thinking about a werebadger as a posibility too, but I have no idea how to go about fur....yet

anyways more tomorrow.

cheers
seth

updates yay!

Had a chance to have a think now, and this is Lucy she's a invocation familiar, a recepticle for energy to be used by her owner at a later date, sort of like a scaly battery pack


Spent a couple of hours on her this morning, and beginning to feel really limited by the number of points that this machine can handle...super clunky at 2.6 mill, go does anyone have any advice on how to better deal with that other than poly grouping and hiding half the piece?

I'm knocking the symetry out of the piece now, hence the right looking more detailed than the left

Hey hey Guys. This pet theme sounds pretty cool. I began working on "Ebizorie". Here is the base mesh, made of zspheres, and a rough sculpt. Still needs tweaks and detailing. I decided to cut some arms, maybe it was giving the impression of showing more than 45%. Anyways this is Ebizorie so far, I hope you like it.

By the way great job everyone so far with the pets. Keep it up

"Princess Pickles" Update #3

Hey all. SO here's tonight's helping. Having fun with this one. Still got a ways to go before it's done though. Great stuff from all of you.

Seth.Nash -- Nice idea. As to the memory issue, I'm really not sure waht to suggest, other than checking your basemesh has no wasted loops. You could potentially simplify certain, unseen parts and then reproject. Otherwise, I think you'll just have to live with it.

Talking Little more detail

Started working on the skin... trying to get that
burning flesh thing going on.. Really attempting to get
a feel of thin layer on skin wrapped tightly around the
muscle. Got a little way to go still.. Inside of the mouth..
havent touched the hands yet... Harness for his book..
That type of thing....

morning all, spent most of last night working on subtool base meshes ( that still arent working when I import them but that's what a lack of experience with maya can do for you ) for Lucy so not much to show sculpting wise I hope to get more done tonight.

thanks for the help with the memory issues monte and polysmooth, I'm running on nothing better than a 300 laptop at the moment so I'm not expecting the best results. I think that I can save a few poly's by re-working the basemesh though (never thought of looking at it from that way, daft as that seems) but I dont think that I have any more memory to unlock

great work with the pieces guys, I love the tension in the straps with your's monte. And I think that the stretched skin look will be perfect for a "hellspawn" Polysmooth.

anyway, the day-job calls...later.

What platform are you running on your laptop? If Vista, you could get a Readyboost enabled memory stick, (6) and upgrade your memory allowance that way. If XP, oh well.

Yeah, tis quiet ... hmm. I gave it a front page plug this morning on 3DTotal so hopefully that should kick-start some new viewers/participants. Great to see you in this challenge Monte! Looking forward to seeing what everyone else comes up with, too - not long to go now: sculpt people, sculpt!
