Sculpt that Blob – Part #1

Our new project is something I can’t wait to get started on.

Our new head sculpt project is very exciting and is something I can’t wait to get stuck into further. At this point I have started my sculpt in Zbrush by saying down a rough head shape and then building on top of it whilst looking at my first hand photos of my lovely model, Clare.


Since Clare wears glasses I have also taken some shots of her with them off.

I have given Zbrush a try a few months back but since then I have forgotten how the interface works in areas, it is quite difficult to remember what all/any of the buttons do. My life is full of buttons these days…and I keep pressing the wrong ones. Below is a screenshot of my first hour spent on the model. I love sculpting and aim to get Clare’s head looking nearly identical to her, in shape and detail.

I have set up the image planes for the front, left and right sides of Clare’s head. At the moment I’m finding this quite awkward and may delete these and just sculpt by looking at the photos on a different monitor. I feel I am taking too much time trying to get things perfect at the beginning when this is not needed until after I get the basic portions matching correctly.
