Default "Share One Planet" Wild Animals CG Art Elites Invitational Competition.

Pretty excited to get invited to join a big CG competition.

We had 100 animals to choose from and since im from Canada i desided that i will do a high rez sculpt of a Moose. Also the sculpt just has to be in grey with no mapping or texturing so that really cool as well.

Here is the initial sketch of where I'll be going will most likely change as the models gets underway.

Yeah, really nice. I see you select just certain parts of objects while you sculpt in those areas...is that just a method you learned/kind of habit, or do you find that particularly useful?

I usally block out all the model really rough with cuts that will define some shapes once thats done, I will select just certain parts and add more details.

Hi Kurt

It looks really good

There are still some small tweaks to be made to the head, I am no moose expert, but if you look at this image you see it yourself:
