So my Monster sculpt just earned a staff pick on Sketchfab which means it's featured on a feed that goes out to about half a million users. I feel like I've arrived :hammer:

TBH, I was never sold on the alien megastructure hypothesis anyroad. If there is a Dyson sphere up there I don't expect you'd even know there was a star. If you're not collecting all the fucking energy then you're hardly Karadshev Type2, are you. I expect any self respecting Dyson Sphere would look like a small black hole from here.

Finished! Almost. Couple of bits of the sculpt to tidy up and it's off to sketchfab. Purely subjective and I feel like I'm too close to the thing to be 100% sure but I feel like I just took a major step up in quality. I trust you motherfuckers hate me enough to not blow smoke up my ass (especially if I ask you not to) but is this like f'kin miles better than anything I've done previously?

Yeah, with the bull, the motion is there and the face would look cool on a teeshirt or an american football helmet I guess but for someone who's been doing fuck all but staring at muscle and bone for the last six months of my life it's hard to see past the wrong. Pug guy, tho, if that wanker is making bank then maybe there's hope for me yet  :eek:

My style was developed pretty much by shooting for realism and missing by miles, but then leaning into the trajectory of my misfire.

Thank you for my daily epiphany!! Like, srsly, you've just changed my life with half a dozen words :eek:

Thanks an absolute ton! I was totally shooting for the pathos he brought to the screen which was so on point in keeping with the book. You want to see awesome, tho,check out this guys work. I was using it as a reference, examining it in microscopic detail all day yesterday and I only found out today it's not a photo of Karloff, it's a life-size fucking sculpt by a stupid talented guy named Mike Hill. I feel like I'm getting the hang of this shit but, fuck me, have I got a long way to go!

Damn, he's quite the artist, eh? At first glance I thought it was a giant pug shit, rather than the pug itself. Second and third glance later It's still what I'm seeing. So the bull I always thought was rough as fuck. Proportions off by a fucking mile and legs that bear no resemblance to the animal they're attached to. The little girl on the other hand is pretty fucking tasty. Impressionist for sure but dripping attitude and conveying the emotion clear as a bell, compared to a bull which basically says nothing beyond "I'm mean and if I was a real bull I wouldn't be able to walk cos I don't have any shoulder muscles." Bull might have had "integrity" but it certainly wasn't anatomical.

Little girl wins the sculpt-off from where I'm sitting :lulz:

I've always had a love/hate relationship with portraits. Maybe sounds dumb but I kinda form a deep emotional connection with the subject. It's a bit like falling in love but not quite. Hard to put into words exactly but it feels great. Problem is, I always get to a stage where it's not quite right but there's fuck all I can do to fix it and I niggle away at tiny details but it makes no difference and eventually I just ragequit out of pure frustration and that's when I'm finished and it's time to upload to deviant art  8)

I did karloff years back in photoshop so this is a romance rekindled. Those deep soulful eyes, the primitive prosthetic. Such a striking, iconic image. The perfect illustration of Shelley's tragic creature. I'll spend another couple of hours on this and I know already it won't be right but, hopefully I'll be closer to the truth than I was before I started and, if not, at least I get to spend a bit more time falling in love with a dead actor.

When I look at your stuff I feel a bit jealous cos you have a total style that's all your own and it looks fuck all like anyone else out there and it's friggin awesome to boot. I'd kill for my own style but all I got is shooting for photorealism and missing by miles :lulz:

Care to share how you went about developing it?

Wow, that is super badass.

Cheers! "Badass" was totally my mantra while I was doing this dude. "Badass" and "Murrica" those were my inspiration.

So I started today with a face study all serious and grown up, like.

Then I sculpted over her with a custom stamp I made a while back called "Xenomorph" Think of custom stamps like custom brushes in photoshop only you're using them to fill 3-d voxel space.

Timelapse here

Check her out on Sketchfab
