This is good sculpting, :clapping:

As I already mentioned, symmetry kills this kind of sulpture.

So, this is directly from voxels or MV ? Take your time to make a separate render pass for each rim light and combine them in Ps. Better results, easy to do.

Very nice sculpt. Super cool vimeo. Its great that the entire interface is visible. this is good and inspiring educational material :good:

thanks for sharing.

heh, thanks for the advice, I'm not to worried about making it look good at the moment. but I agree completely that the symmetry is killing it. I wish I could put a asymmetry lattice over the volume while I work symetrically.

I know I could comp it in Ps, but it kinda defeats my goal of mastering the tool if I switch tools. I've done my share of tool hopping believe me. :) I figure if I share what hits my cutting room floor while I warmup it might be interesting.

Oh nice sculpting and interesting rendering, :clapping:

Where this SSS like effect came from?

Hi

i feel very good about this Tool,and You are very creative with It.

nice feel to sculpt someone growing alive under your stokes and looking to you!

then how can we make him talk...or just morphanimate directly,something like Mari for 3D,or does ZB already has that animating feature?

I like the horned fella. Nice muckabouts your doing here. Lovely to watch you dropping to and from vox to surface in first video. Makes me want to experiment further with Surface tools and Key bindings. :good:Cool stuff.

Really nice. I liked how you fleshed out the look of the character as you go, in the time lapse video. I prefer to do that with characters I may design myself....only so much I can do in 2D with sketching.

yeah it's pretty cool to "doodle" without a plan sometimes.

huh. the instancers are neat.

Your work is very inspiring!

How did you do the eyes in your first post?

I just made a picmat of an eye and assigned it to a vox layer that had two spheres on it.

here's texture I used in the shader

eye_human.BMP

here's a 60 second face doodle.

Some fun stuff, I love the complexcity of your doodles, really shows where 3D-Coat excels. Great stuff. :clapping:

Thanks! I got it working...it wasn't nearly as complicated as I thought it would be.

After watching your excellent videos, one question. How to retopo all this complex structure? Like the excellent #13 sculptures.

yeah that would be a pain. the autotopology kinda falls apart on models like that.

Exactly so. But lets talk about manual topology now. Practically impossible, or not so? Some hours maybe. Difficult!

What I'm trying to say is that there's a limit when materializing our ideas and this isn't fair. Similar limits in traditional sculpting-painting-drawing and still not fair. It never was. LOL

not sure where fairness comes into it ;)

I usually just draw the topology on in manually with this kind of case #13 (to be fair, but for shippable models like this, I wouldn't make them with voxels to start with). that I can with voxels is interesting and a fast way to concept.

It will take a few more generations of the algorithms and implementations like autopo to get it "right" and handle cases like this. we are born too early.

+1

And they look great. Concept, the most important part.

Right spacepainter, why?

As long we can't fully use an advanced render directly from vox room (btw I really like the 3ds internal). As long we can't paint on voxels directly. As long we cant animate or whatever.

We can export a tri decimated mesh but its heavy and really difficult or impossible to UV and texture it. On static models (like rocks etc) I sometimes export a fully decimated tri mesh and re-import it to retoporoom for UVs and baking. It works great in more cases.
