Default The Critter

I have created this scenery to showcase my abilities.

Basic modelling in Maya, Sculpted in Zbrush and painted in Photoshop

I will post non darkly images later. so you guys can see the detail. as i sculpted at 3 mill polygons.

As this is the mood i was aiming for.

Many thanks.

looks great bud only crits are your lighting just something weird with the shadow direction also maybe just work a bit with the colours of the skin it would be great to see him with a really well built up flesh tone so yeah just a thought to play arond a bit more in photoshop on that but the modelling is great youve done a good job well done.

Hey thx for your comments indeed the shadow direction is a bit off, pretty hard to get correct, ill have to do some more work there.

Your flesh idea hmm im not into that for this creature, i dont know, are you talking about flesh like in doom? more disgusting ;D

I kinda like the dry skin effect at the moment, but let me know what type of fleshy your talking about

Attached more lighting in a sens to view the details, so dont crit on lighting there

nice model - might be nice to get a bit more variation in the skin colors - just seems a bit bland at the moment.
