I'd say it's really up to you. I like sometime to start with Zspheres in Zbrush in challenges like these where there is a time limit, since it is really fast. The inconvenient with Zspheres tough is that you can't really control the edgeflow, and you can have too much polys in the hands/toes and not enough on the body/face.

But since this month there is no time limit, I tought I would take 30 min more and do one in Maya with a good edgeflow, putting my edges where I need them.

My personal preference, base mesh in 3ds, will allow for a better Edge flow and you wont be "forced" to retopo later on.

ok just failed a second time at making a base mesh, i have know idea why i cant make one. I ok on zbrush (not with zspheres i always mess that up) and good on 3ds max just cant create one. Going to try zspheres see it that works. Also with zbrush anyway to get a ref pic on there so i can get the size right?

two quick questions
1: are we allowed to modernize our design. example http://kassarts.deviantart.com/art/M...azon-146938226
or do we need to stick to the traditional amazon design such as http://xiaji777.deviantart.com/art/Amazon-61076971
or maybe a combination of both.

2: is it a requirement to have our progress recorded via Camtasia or Fraps?

This is about fun, learning and cool sculpting. We're not gonna go "Big Brother" on you.
Also i think i can be modern as its still the same concept.

All these questions made me wonder myself, The amazon itself is described to be a beautiful female warrior, so do we have to go for a specific traditional clothing?

Hey guys sorry for not posting for a while, I will be entering this comp for sure and such, I sadly could not finish the coming of ice one last time because of work on my portfolio for a college place (which i got woot!) but yeah count me in for sure!

Oh and Turvs if your having trouble with your base mesh you should check out soem of Ben's tutorials over here: http://poopinmymouth.com/tutorial/tutorial.htm

I would really not focus too much on getting a perfect base mesh by the way man, and if your really having trouble you should also follow the Joan of arc tutorial that is on the 3dtotal homepage(http://3dtotal.com/pages/tutorials/m...c/joanmenu.php) it has helped me out a great deal when I was learning and once you get something that looks like a female put loops around areas that will have to bu sub-divided and it will work just fine in Zbrush/Mudbox and so on. Focus on enjoyment and you will be fine and grab some pics of women on the net to use as a guide for anatomy which I am sure the net is usefull for lol! But yeah hope this helps ya out man, best of luck!

To further clarify on some questions:

1. The modern approach to the theme would take this in too many directions. Let's keep it in the traditional mood like TNTxGRAVE's second image: http://xiaji777.deviantart.com/art/Amazon-61076971

2. It is not a requirement to record your progress, it is a suggestion. If you do record, you do not have to post in anywhere, but it is good for you to have it in case it is requested that you show it ( in private, for any possible reason that cannot be foreseen at this time ).

3. Make the amazons as hot as you like. Oh, you mean this question wasn't asked?

Throne: That's not modernized. It's a fantasy Night Ellf. I think a similar idea would fit perfectly.

Thank you FreeSpace for clarifying things for me. Now I have a direction in which to go. I wanted to do a 90% traditional and 10% modern character. The 10% would be taking something as simple as a traditional weapon and bringing it up-to-date. so she isnt running around with a stick.
