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?

Holy shit! That is insane!! It totally looks like the real deal, not just a representation of a character, but the monster itself. You're leveling up!  :fnord: :fnord: :fnord:

Certainly how it feels, man. Totally stoked! He's on sketchfab now

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:

Hey, that's really cool! Congratulations on having the quality of your work recognized!

Oh snap! That's fantastic! I think you're so early to the VR Art party that you're gonna be a master before people even know what's what. Go go go!

Sometimes progression for me is in small, incremental steps. I keep practising and, every time I create something new, I get a little bit more fluid, a little bit better. Other times there are what feel like huge leaps, like with Karloff where a number of different things I've been working on seem to fall into place in a - better than the sum of it's parts - kinda deal. At least that's how it feels.

These leaps feel fucking awesome. With the incremental progress I hardly notice it happening, the difference in quality from one project to the next is barely noticeable. Only when I look back at earlier shit do I see the difference but with the "Level Up" crap, that's almost like a choir of angels or some shit. An orgasm maybe, it's a total buzz anyway but it's both a blessing and a curse.

Sometimes it's a bit of a fluke. My next dozen things will be back to where I was and that's frustrating as fuck but I just have to hold on to the memory of managing it the one time, to spur me on through the increments I have to plod through in order to get back there. TBH, it doesn't feel like failure exactly but it's a kick in the nuts from a very similar boot.

"Can I turn on the Karloff shit at will now or was that just a tease?" I was wondering to myself. Bit nailbitey but WTF, only one way to find out. Happy to report, I think it's a proper level up and not just a preview! So this guy is my "Big project for the weekend" New training regimen, to accommodate and build on my newly acquired hi frequency detail skillz. Even for the pros, detailing is a fucking time consuming thing. Time to cover a whole model raises exponentially with resolution so at weekends I'm going to dedicate 10-12 hours to ninja-ing the fuck out a sculpt and then through the week I'll stick to speedsculpts and anatomy studies.

Based on a concept sculpt I scribbled down a few weeks back. Should have this guy finished by tomorrow night

Was trying to catch the dynamic of him getting shot by a machine gun, so I looked in the mirror and imagined myself being shot in the shoulder, the cheek and then the head and trying to figure out where the arms could be. I went for a kind of left arm out doing the - graspy zombie - thing. And the right arm sorta just hanging down.

So then I acted out taking one in the shoulder and that obviously twisted my shoulder back but I could feel the momentum pulling on my left arm so that came across and then my head twisted back with shot-2 but the force on the left arm was still (I felt) coming from shoulder rotation.

And then my hand was between me and the shooter...

Dunno, does that momentum thing come across in the final sculpt? Also the ridiculousness of his eyes focused on the bullet that would have been out the back of his head before this brain would even register there was something to look at. Thought that might be worth a laugh?

I feel like it does capture this moment of "Oh fuck is this really what's happening now?" as everything kinda goes sideways.

Wow, Bobby's right -- you leveled up!

Your Karloff is simply stunning. I love the bullet-riddled zombo too, but that Frankenmonster is just on-point. Major kudos!

Thanks! Been working on a Bob Marley portrait for a couple of days now that still looks like shit and is currently walking the fine line between - right, lets get this figured out - and - fuck bob marley in his stupid dead rasta face  :argh!:

Took a break from him tonight and did a detailing redux on Goblin Fight Promoter. Been dreading detailing for so long but I gotta tell you - it's my new favourite thing in the world!

That skin texture is intense! The depth of detail is astonishing  :fnord:

With the software you're using is there an animation component? Because if you can eventually make these gd things MOVE, even just a a little bit, you'll be on some hyperspatial type shit!
