Because my previous Character Design teacher Neville Page (he is the creature designer of Avatar, Watchman, and Startrek...) told me in class that I got the talent of doing sculpture with tiny details! (so glad to hear it) He said maybe I should keep working with clay or learn zbrush.
Plus ~ I am into character design and toy design stuff and I saw some 3D printing companies and services presentations at SIGGRAPH this year. It seems like the 3D printing machines and services are getting cheaper :D (check out this site: http://www.shapeways.com/ you can upload your zbrush model and select the materials, they will print it for you and you can even sell it on their website.)
So I think it's time to learn zbrush :) !!
The program is really amazing~ It makes 3D modeling a LOT easier (I have learned basic Maya and 3D max before). It's just like working with clay!!!
My 1st project is to do a serpent man model and then do 10 sketches in photoshop.
To be honest~ I am totally not a scary monster/creature person XD I love to do cute stuff.
So my sketches turn out to be a "serpent woman" not a man~ hahahaa
My teacher Bryan said this is looking feminine but it's ok... serpent man needs a serpent woman ~ lol.
Anyway I am here to learn the program so please don't mind that I might make everything girly. XD
Here are my 10 sketches using the zbrush model I made.
and these are my references (ewwww)
