Thanks Bobby. The more I practice the more I'm finding my eye getting dialled in. Borg Queen was a pretty awesome experience for me, the least amount of fiddling about with forms back and forward. I'm able to get a lot more right first try. Even a couple of weeks ago this would have taken three or four days. As it turned out this one was about 3hours. I pissed about with the paintjob more than the actual sculpt.

Some process wips.

First rough using an old anatomy study as a starting point. Mouth on the original was open so I had to redo the lower jaw and tweak the cheekbones and eye sockets to match the subject. Eyes haven't been touched at this point so that's why they look totally wrong.

Second session, concentrating on secondary forms, fixed the eyes and trying to push some expression in there. Was about this point I noticed one of my refs had a huge bulging cranium (must have been a post fx process - none of the others had this). Considered going in this direction but decided to stick with a slightly elongated normal size skull.

Third session, more detailing, added some pipes and metalwork and whatnot. More detailing. Normally buy now I'd still be fucking around trying to the nose the right shape or some other stupid bullshit.

Last session, adding the shoulders and funky glowing spinal column and she's good to go

And then about 3 hours yesterday fucking around with shaders and textures in blender. I hate this so much but the results are just about worth it.

this is why i'm sincerely hoping we colonize a planet in my lifetime. It's the only semi-possible escape i can see from this madness.

If we can't get our shit together here, we won't be able to get our shit together anywhere else, either. I'm not sure what that would accomplish besides fucking up more planets (which aren't really even ours to fuck up in the first place).

Right now the human race is one Trump tweet away from a global extinction event. Continued existence of the human race (if you happen to be one of those weirdos who thinks it's something of intrinsic value) is wholly dependent on not having all our eggs in one basket.

Also, in the absence of any other claimant, the entire universe is ours to fuck up as we see fit.

If you're not one of the freaks who values our species then why the fuck would you value any species? Or universe? It's just a pile of crap, floating in space.

There's also the fact that, from Putin's point of view, Trump just winning was a good enough endgame to be worth the effort. I can't imagine a player like Vlad would really need any leverage or inside track to capitalise on a complete retard being in charge of his biggest geopolitical rival.

Trump Potus will do as much damage to mainland USA as a dozen tactical nuclear strikes washed down with a land invasion chaser but with none of the guilt  :lulz:

After being on for a solid week, day and night, my fan died.

I have no other fans  :sad:

Now that's just nonsense. Everyone knows we're your biggest fans!  :cainftw:

Dreams! Fuck me, I'd forgotten all about that. Cheers for the reminder.

Thanks Nigel. I thought I'd replied to this days ago but I must have forgotten to hit "post"

Anyroad, the big news this morning is my Karloff Monster was just featured on UploadVR.

This might be one of the most realistic models ever created with a VR tool (in this case, Oculus Medium). The raw emotion visible in this take on Boris Karloff’s monster here is incredibly compelling, reminding us a little of Wilson’s Heart.

I'm actually feeling a bit emotional that some complete stranger just wrote that shit about something I did!  :aww:

Oh yeah, and heres what I meant to post the other day. Not sure there's any compelling raw emotion in here but, hey, I'm sure even Picasso had days when he'd just seen the DoomVFR trailer and wanted to paint demon skulls, right?

So here's the thing that's been gnawing at me, pretty much since you first started posting here. Perfect example in the last pic you posted - that texture you're using on the hills at the horizon. Either it's something tilable, in which case - how the actual fuck do you tile something like that? Or else it's hand drawn,in which case - what the actual fuck, are you even human?

Put me out my misery, I need to know?

I'm thinking that some guys are in relationships or at least have no problems getting laid and other guys either through choice or lack of personality have no option but to beat off. For a lot of guys it's an appetite, like eating. You either need to get laid once in a while or you need to do it yourself, right?

So given that you're one of the ones who needs to sort himself out, isn't it a natural progression to go from looking at porn to interactions with something tangible that looks exactly like your worst nightmare just crawled from the bowels of hell and jumped on your dick?  :lulz:

Attn Cramulus: You called this years ago. Hope you're fucking pleased with yourself  :argh!:

We should have listened to Lemmy.

Cheers Bobby! Eyes have always felt to me like something I have covered. Like, "Yeah, cool, I totally don't suck at eyes"

Bringing the rest of the face up to the same level as the eyes is the challenge for me :lulz:
