Other Modeling projects


A work in progress dungeon/sewer.
mostly just texture practice and remembering how to use UDK . Fire is the basic fire from UDK just changed timing and color .9/1/13







I decided to play the latest MMO to see what the industry is doing. I found DC Universe Online . Some of the modeling and textures were real quick and simple. I fell in love with the world instantly  so I started to build the city, but  here is one building with its first pass texture.

I was scared of zbrush ...

I was scared of Zbrush and disliked everything about Zbrush. Its layout was funky and doing simple things consisted of going all through a whole bunch of tabs , materials ect . In the past I did a few projects with it but as my fear and headaches grew my skill in  zbrush stumbled to not even knowing how to do  the basics. After seeing and understanding how important and helpful zbrush was , I gave it one more shot . I attended an extra class after my graduation and the instructors supported me every step of the way. I learned plenty of character ,  hard surface sculpting,  and texturing during this time. Im an environment artist and never thought I would be able to understand character stuff in zbrush ... Well it took me about 2 weeks to make amends with zbrush , and now I can only think about sculpting a library of characters :D.

I will post all zbrush stuff here.


Father Orcy ( Work in progress )
I used about 6 brushes.
I used the base model in Z4R2 .
The Teeth on the necklace was super fun to sculpt , I put an immense amount of detail in it.




Koth the Hammer ( Work in progress )
I used about 6 brushes.
I used the base model in Z4R2 . I saw this character on a magic card  and just had to sculpt him. I  saw many other people already did a few iterations of him so here I'm trying my own twist of the character .


 




Leo's Hammer  
I used about 6 - 8  brushes.
I used basic shapes in zbrush  .




 And yes I had fun putting that detail in that you will never seee :D





Red Hulk Character Zbrush Practice
So I needed to create a Marvel character because it has been my dream to create one. I needed to find some motivation so I decided to have monthly zbrush practices on characters with a friend of mine . I wanted a mean looking face so choose to make RED HULK. Heres is the latest update on him.

Had a crazy time figuring out lights in this scene.
