This is work based off of Chabe Escalante's Warrior 09 concept (https://www.instagram.com/p/BA_bpZisxZ9/), done for Dylan Ekren's Creating Appealing Characters workshop. Done mostly in ZBrush, with a little bit of Maya for some accessories.
Better defining and simplifying the hair.
5/6 - Another round of recommendations from Dylan, and another round of fixes! Also started simplifying the hair, and adding back in strands. Almost ready to call the head done, so I can finalize the clothing.
5/4 - Paintover on the left was a crit offered up by a Facebook friend (thanks, Leslie!). Made more progress tonight. She's getting closer! Need to simplify the hair and shrink the eyes a bit, and I thinks it's time to move on to the cloth polishing.
4/29 - This weekend's face updates next to Chabe's concept (full concept here: https://www.instagram.com/p/BA_bpZisxZ9/). I got some good feedback on simplifying the hair and bringing some of the planes back into the nose area. Back to it tonight!
Week 10 - quick liquefy to give myself some direction for final face shape/proportion tweaks.
Week 10 - fixing lots of face issues.
Week 9! I'm planning to use this mesh to learn rigging after the final sculpt submission, so I redid the topology for the face. I got some good recommendations for more forehead and ear loops, and this has the former but not the latter (yet).
Week 8 - more posing, sculpting, and polypainting. This will get finalized after week 8's feedback.
Week 8 - hair fixes and facial posing.
Week 7 - started on the hair.
Week 7 - started posing, made more proportion/silhouette fixes.
