New year, new challenges



I'm taking part to the Action Hero Competition at Zbrush Central. It started on 19th December and it closes on 13th February.
Participants must come up with an idea of an Action Hero, an initial concept sketch and then develop that with Zbrush. And that's fun! Here's my entry.

There are about 90 competitors in the challenge and there's a lot of exceedingly good stuff going round. Being this a work in progress competition all participants must post regular updates of their work. For me it's a perfect opportunity to finalize my learning of Zbrush by picking up techniques here and there. In exchange I give what I know to whoever want to follow what I'm doing. Group learning at its best.

Wow, this looks very good Max. Great pose and costume design, love the open fingers on the gloves. Zbrush rules!

Thanks Vince, I'm in the process of detailing his gear and costume now, it'll take me about a week to have the model finished or near so and I can't wait to have that done so that I can start texturing and working on the materials. I'm really into this thing now.

I'm very well Vince, thanks. There are still 2 weeks left to the end of the Zbrush contest and I'm giving it all the time that I have available. I'm really learning a lot.
