WIP rollerblader – Skate

April 27th, 2008

Hi. I am starting a new character. It will be a rollerblader.

I begun rollerblading a long time ago, and even I don’t practice much latly, I still love this sport.

Very popular in the second half of 90s and early 2000s, the sport is now much more underground.

However, people who love this sport keep pushing it, despite the lack of exposure in massive media.

I want to make a little tribute to them.

So first things first , I made the skate. It’s a Remz 2007 team model.

I have try something different with Zbrush, more hard surface than organic.

Moloch WIP

March 28th, 2008

This is my current WIP.

It’s based on a great concept made by Florent Maudoux for Rackham.

Where I am so far.


.

The modeling is complete at this stage.
All the polygonal modeling, and sculpting studies was made in Silo.
This is my first character mainly sculpted in Zbrush. I almost only used Mudbox for detailing before and a little bit Zbrush at the very end for some extra details. The only things that I can is that Zbrush is great.
