I decided to delve deeper into Zbrush and start a series of busts or full models to add to my portfolio and generally give me more experience in the program. I started with something simple, only creating the model using the following tools:
- Clay buildup
- Alpha 25
- Alpha 63
The model took roughly 6 – 7 hours to create and is, at the moment, untextured. I may return to this bust at some point to experiment with the ploypaint tools, but for now i’d like to get used to the modelling aspect.
The only problem I have with this particular model is that I went a bit overboard with the subdividing, so it has near 10 million polygons. This means it isn’t of much use practically however I will work on reducing the polygon count.
