Great concept. I had a similar idea for this contest first (2 in 1) but dropped it in favor of my current one. Go go, nerf3601 Smiling

its really difficult for me to do this sculpt, the stretched flesh is the most dificult. I dont know how to really get it done. I just keep goin at it with the clay tubes brush hoping it comes out half as good as I want it too

Cool idea, but yeah man I can see why that would be tough... that's a lot of stretched flesh to cover.  Maybe easier if you pulled it in a bit, somethin like this?

Maybe I will pull the heads a little closer to make it easier but prolly not that close. I do want it to feal really twisted and inhuman and the 2 human heads are making sort of a new more larger monsterous head

thanks for the crit though dude

 

In retro spect I think I should have played around with the Zsketch feature or maybe not.. I dunno I gotta lwearn alot more about how to better utilize the specific parts of zbrush

Got some suggestions and comments for you in the picture below - you could also try to improve on the muscle flow a bit by referring to actual anatomy (ok, might be hard to get pictures of siamese twins' anatomy). Apart from those you might consider using another material that gives more contrast. Right now the shadows tend to wash out. Makes the features hard to read.

thanks suz.. trust me if I could do that I would have but trying to do it all in Zbrush is really really hard for me.. Im still a newb to this whole 3d scene. it pisses me off that I can draw those details but not model them.

 

all I really used to pull out that stretched flesh was the clay tubes brush, if you have any idea how to get that look other than clay tubes I would soooo love you for it Eye-wink

btw I tend to bite off more than I can chew so to speak, its the only way I can learn and hopefully learn FAST Laughing out loud

 

 

playing with color .. I wanted all the red fleshy undercrap to be shiny but z brush cant blend between matcaps Sad

the one on the left was made from the demo head and some zspheres, I know not to enter that one its just a kinda proof of concept. should I go in that direction or what? This head really has me stumped Sad

First feeling that struck me: disgust.
Second feeling: curiosity.
Then again: disgust.
It's like a car accident. You cannot watch it but somehow you do.
I guess that makes your concept head a little more convincing to me then the one you've sculpted from scratch.

As to how to achieve the multi layered effect I had an idea. You could try the zsketch feature to draw the stretched flesh on top of the base mesh. With a little tweaking you even might get them to have some spacing from each other.

I like the heads version as opposed to the zombie version. Both are terrific however. Very unique concept.

hey nerf, if you think you have hit a plateau on the Betrayer, put it on hold for a while...... it may not be shaping up the way you might have envisioned at the outset but that's a problem with the first impressions that they are fugitive no matter how great they may be..... so let it be for a while..... it is a very interesting idea and is capable of creating a profound character if you think of it as a personality...... the newer version is more from this world and has agony as the dominant expression whereas the starter version has fear and realisation as its dominant expression......... i feel its a very uniqe idea.....  so please go for something else that seems to give form to your crearive urge for the moment but do revisit this piece as it may really turn out to be an excellent work....... and...  all the best for the Tribal dude.......

Hi nerf,

 

i like where the human head is going, you could work on two very different expressions to portray your original idea. A person that lies well, will have a face people can trust and believe, its the horrid mind underneath it all that must be revealed and exposed.

Good luck with your choices.

yeah but I think with my current level of skill in 3-d Im not really sure I can conquer this concept. that and I had my "main computer" you know the beast we all have to do these kinda things crapped out and I JUST got done fixing it so that took alot of wind outa me so to speak.

 

anyhow Im not sure what Im going to do, gotta try and remotivate myself aggain Sticking out tongue

 

thanks for the adv. Lactics Eye-wink

not that long ago, one of my earlier computers gave me some grief...fails and repairs in 1 year = 6 monitors, two internal HD, two external HD, faulty ram replaced once, ram re-seated 3 times, and in the end a fail mother board which was probably the cause of most of its issues. They a great when they are working, a pain in the butt when there down.

well to say, after that, took out a loan and purchased a very cool custom made PC, will never buy off the shelf again.

All the best nerf3601 with whatever venture you tackle, wish you all the best for Xmas and the New Year Smiling

Keep at it, learn hard and play heaps.

Cheers Ady - Laticis
