THANKS...Samanthie..:) I have been drawing and painting dragons ever since I can remember..The first one I remember, was with finger paints that my father bought for me when I was about five years old...I remember painting a whole bunch of different kinds of dinosaurs from pictures in a book, with those finger paints..They quickly evolved into dragons somehow,...probably from watching all of those old 1950's monster B movies ..like RODAN and GODZALA..:scream:

Tim .. THANKS...I will work on those wings more, when I make this image into a two and a half D painting, for a poster size print, which is going in my store....Right now, I like the way they look as a sculpted metal...Those facets in them pick up the light nicely I think,..which is what sculpture is all about.:)

Johan...THANKS...This image can be interpreted in many ways, depending on the personal philosphy about life and death of the veiwer. To me, it is the two symbols of immortal spirit..the DRAGON,...and mortality,...THE OLD MAN ....TIMELESSNESS, and TIME ...Combined into one sculpture.....Just like the dragon that I have tatooed on my shoulder in real life...That's the reason I had it put there,...To smbolize my personal philosphy of life...A mortal body, with an immortal SPIRIT within it...THE DRAGON..:)
TAKE CARE
Glenn

I've taken this image as far as I can and want to, as a sculpture,..now it's off to explore and experiment with the PROJECTION MASTER in Z BRUSH. I have never used that funtion of that program yet..Time to turn this image into a PAINTING, using those two and a half D brushes, while keeping it a 3D object that can be captured from all angles, and kept as a two and a half D image/painting,..using the PROJECTION MASTER funtion of the Z BRUSH program.:)

Putting this cast of 3d characters that i've created to work.
Making a composition that has to do with old age,a reflextive feeling,...middle age, strenght,...and next up ..youth, innocence.
The cycle, or circle of LIFE theme.
I have seen this theme portrayed by many of the old masters, ..but I have never seen it portrayed currently, and in 3d.
Made as a one unit tool,comprised of seperate tools, so it can be viewed from all angles....
This will give me an opportunity to explore and experiment with Z BRUSH further..:)

Hey Glenn!

Long time no see, so I dropped by to check out your latest work! Glad to see you getting comfortable with Zbrush. Also I like the plane sculpting very much, have seen it done somewhere before but never tried it. Seems like lot of fun and freedom. Sculptures you got reminded me of pompei people who've been frozen in time as the volcano erupted. They look like they're trapped with square shape of the plane, quite a few emotions they invoke!

keep it up!

Hi Glenn :)

Great to see your progress with your image - It looks like you're really having fun learning. I also really like your relief sculptures - they look very dramatic as Ivan said. All in all you seem to have a good understanding of anatomy.
I loved the small dragon - especially the way you did his face. Any chance we will see a small seperate finished picture just with him?
I have some small crits for the old man.. There's something about him that seem to sugest to me that he's about to fall over - like he's not totally balanced. I can't put my finger on it.
His fingers seem too thick where they meet his face - especially his smallest finger. It almost looks like he has something between his hand and his face.
Great expression on him by the way. And I think it could really turn out to be a great piece with your most recent idea (Circle of life) even though I liked him as a wizard too.

You're making me want to explore Zbrush as well.

Best wishes

Nikoline

Ivan ...THANKS...Still a whole lot left for me to learn in Z BRUSH, but i'm still having alot of fun learning it, most of the time that is :scream: , and having fun all the time while playing with it..:) Just an old kid at heart I guess, while under the spell of Z BRUSH..:)

Nikoline ...THANKS ..:) I was actually thinking about making a fancy base and perch for that dragon...I might even perch him as the centerpiece on top of this table...as the SYMBOL OF LIFE, which it is ,..to me anyway...:)
I am still working on the old man...his fingers are basically just blocked in at the moment...lots of refinements left...I will hopefully get around to them, sooner or later..Just taking it a day at a time, and trying to have fun with it, while learning lots of new things at the same time..:)
TAKE CARE
Glenn

Gave the table a center base,gave the man a new seat, and put one in place for the child to stand on, and lean over the top of the table, maybe to play with a perched dragon..the SYMBOL OF LIFE...kids have a way of playing with life, which is something that most adults forget how to do as they mature.
Just part of the cycle/circle of LIFE...I GUESS..:)

Hi Glenn!

Still playing with this one I see. Will sure push as much as possible from this one. Must've learned a lot by now, mm? I like the update on 14th October. The dragons fits in really well, looks very interesting as a piece.
The reliefs look great! Saw those and remember of something that I believe will be interesting for you to see, even though I think you've seen it before. But still, just something I've photographed when I was in Milan. See HERE (http://img251.imageshack.us/img251/2483/dscn0546fl0.jpg) and HERE (http://img251.imageshack.us/img251/8100/dscn0544dm8.jpg).

I can't wait to see your next painting..I'm so glad that you have managed to keep the traditional painting style of CHINA alive in your paintings...It's too BEAUTIFUL of a style to lose, as everyone seems to want to imatate the western style of painting these days, and disregard their own
traditions and styles of painting..Seems to me to be like a slap in the face to all of the GREAT MASTERS of ancient traditions and styles of painting....So it makes me really really glad and happy to see you carrying on in the footsteps and style of painting of the GREAT MASTERS that CHINA has produced over many many centuries...Keep up the GREAT and BEAUTIFUL work...

MR MU...THANKS....HEY, these relief sculptures are alot of fun to do, plus they only take a few minutes to do..great way for me to loosen up in the morning, and also keep my memory of anatomy alive..and kicking..:scream: :)

Samanthie...THANKS...These relief sculptures are really easy, and great fun to do also,..plus they are great for doing quick anatomy studies that allow you to view the figure from different angles, which helps in the learning process...Hope you get a chance to try it out, I think you would really enjoy it...:)
TAKE CARE
Glenn

A little further along with this concept..Added the dragon, SYMBOL OF LIFE. Just getting the different elements in place..they are all sub tools, so each element can be moved seperatly and repositioned ..and also the whole scene can be moved around as one unit , to view it from different angles / perspectives...Still need to make the child to complete the three age groups for the cycle/circle of life theme that I am aiming for.

Johan ..THANKS ..I was thinking of joining these together to make a panal of some sort,...once I get more used to doing them that is..will have to think of a theme, and then create some figures to go with it..but that is down the road aways...right now, I am just using them to refresh my anatomy memory, and to get used to all of these fancy sculpting tools in Z BRUSH...:) ..Maybe by the time I get ready to create that panal piece, they will have that printer that you mentioned above ready also....YOU NEVER KNOW ..LOL :scream:

MR MU ...THANKS ...:) ...No overlays or tricks, ..just plane old traditional sculpting technique,...done digitally....:)
Using the clay brush, which adds clay,...and a smoothing brush which just smooths the rough areas out, along the edges that the clay brush leaves...same as you would do in a traditional way...add clay, then smooth...These are just quick sketch type of anatomy studies..that can always be refined further if I feel like it...but right now, I am just keeping them simple and vague, just to get the anatomy practice in, and to get used to all of the fancy tools/brushes that are in Z BRUSH...I will try out a new tool/brush on each piece, just to see what it is capable of, as I go along..lots of combinations to be tried with these new tools/brushes....a new adventure for me...FOR SURE..:)

this last one with the unified lighting is just wonderful, wonderful!

The "tinting" gave it such a beautiful softness which together with the anatomical accuracy and lushness of the shapes is really enjoyable. Would also be great to see "fo' realz"...:D

REALLY ENJOYED the latest post of yours in your anatomy/skechbook thread...Hope to see much more posted in there...SEEING YOUR WORK,ALWAYS INSPIRES ME TO PUSH MYSELF FURTHER,..SO KEEP POSTING ..PLEASE...TEACHER..:)

Michelle....THANK YOU....:) A DOODLE to me is just an image that is not preconcieved..It's where you just let your imagination run free, and what it creates is really out of your hands in a sense..kind of like when you dream, but done while you are awake, if that makes sense..:) ..Sometimes you can control your dreames I guess, but most of the time, they are in control...for better, or for worse..depending on what your perceptions of good and bad are I suppose.
Anyway, lots of practice on a daily basis, will get you to the point that you desire, sooner or later, depending on the amount of effort and work that you challenge yourself to fullfill...:)
THANKS for the great feedback ..EVERYONE..Very helpful, and very much appreceated...I will reply back on your threads shortly, but right now, I am nursing a cramped up back, which gives me alot of pain when sitting for too long in front of the computer. Just an old injury, come back to haunt me one more time and usually only last for about a week..already feels better than yesterday, but still painfull,..SO, AS ALWAYS, TAKE CARE

HEY...Icey....THANKS.... ..NO, NO REFFERENCES.. I didn't spend a lifetime of learning this stuff/anatomy, so that I could copy other peoples work,..even though it is a good practice once in awhile to do it, just to make sure that you still can do it.. ..Plus you can always learn something new by copying from a master, no matter how much you think you may know..:) ..But on the other hand, working from imagination without refferences, pushes you to remember what you have already learned..The only sure way to be a winner at this game of illussion, is to learn how to do it/master ALL THE WAYS THAT IT CAN BE DONE..SHOULD TAKE NO LONGER THAN A ..LIFETIME..:eek: :scream: :)

Dionysis ...THANKS...I just discovers how to make those rocks yesterday, while playing..I kind of like the effect they create with these reliefs myself..they add depth, and and a whole new demention to the reliefs I think..:)

Serena....THANKS...About the child,....ME TOO..I'm just playing it by ear...don't know where i'm going with this , ..I only know that i'm going..:scream: ...kind of like a jazz musican does..just play from the heart, and make it up as you go along..sooner or later, whatever is in you manages to come out and show itself or be heard...that's the best part of the adventure, and journy,..not knowing what's next ...to me anyway...I like surprises :scream: :)

Dionysis ..THANKS..It's a good idea, and practice to set aside a couple of hours a day, or even just a few minutes, to just play, and exercise your own imagination, ..that's the only way to make and keep your imagination strong. Just like any other muscle in your body, the imagination muscle requires frequent exercise to stay healthy :) I exercise daily...that's why my sketchbook is updated daily..not anymore complecated than that..:)
For learning how to do figures from imagination, I highly recommend getting all of BURNE HOGARTHS BOOKS, and reading them, not just copy them.
I will be laying in a floor of some sort for this concept to rest upon towards the end of the journy...just taking it a day at a time..:)

More work done on this one this morning. Still totally created from scratch, and my own imagination..I did go to the library yesterday, and got a couple of books for inspiration, and to see if I was on the right track concerning my anatomy in these figures...looks like I am..:scream: :)
The books I got at the library, to check myself,and my anatomy results are.
THE DRAWINGS OF PONTORMO,...by Janet Cox Rearick ....VOLUME 11
MICHELANGELO DRAWINGS by Ludwig Goldscheider.....PHAIDON
FANTASTIC BOOKS TO GET INSPIRATION FROM..and to see if your anatomy is accurate, when working on figures from your own imagination, where you don't have model photos or a live model :)

Great relief, Glenn! Very well done, I don't even have to say that, it's obvious. It has this feel like those old master works do. With that satyr, lady and baby in it. Just the subjects often seen in old master's works. I like how the lady's hand get more out the plane and casts a shadow. By the way, in my opinion the grey one looks more natural but the red material shows the forms better.
Are you going to release the magic and light this one?

I'm really enjoying these - it's good to see Zbrush being used to create compositions rather than singlular objects, I think that's quite rare! The last few look like candles or artisitically designed novelty soap - the effect of the material is that convincing. And the detail
you're putting into the anatomy really does enhance the realism - that these could be sculpted by hand and are real world objects.

Trunks
11-17-2007, 04:10 PM
Hey Glenn,
first of all: Zbrush is a very confusing programm... I have never seen such a complex and confusing thing. It is really great to see how you can handle this programm :) I think it will take some more time till I can show you my first "better" experiments because I am just at the beginning at the moment :)

On this last piece: It would be great to change this red texture into some bronze texture but keep the dust. (well I don't know if there is dust but it would be great to keep this effect) I'll try to create an example how I mean it but I hope you understand it ;)

It is also the most rewarding and satisfying thing that I have done so far in art, and in digital, for me so far too.
I'm a little burned out on the si fi stuff as of lately..it's all starting to look the same to me.
At my age, the beauty in clasical art, and the wisdom in it's myths and stories is where it's at..some things are just timeless, and worth repeating,...beauty in art, and story telling with art is one of those things..to me anyway.
So for now, I am sticking with the clasical...a very rich resorce, if ever there was one...:)

Good work on the sculpture, Glenn. It must be tricky to model it this way because of the round surface. Oh, I chose the same sculpture to work on. Polyphemus. Haven't started yet, but seeing this will get me started sooner, hehe. I really like how the figure is stepping far out.
Is the shape of the overall object random or will this be something? Like a vase maybe. Just wondering :)

Hey,
Just watching your progress in that relief Glenn. Sorry to don´t post in every update, but keep certain I´m following.

The only thing that bugs me since the first images is his left arm (screen view). I think you´re going to make a "robust" figure, with short and strong limbs. But this arm looks unproportional. Maybe it´s just the way you have sculpted the volumes of the forearm muscles. Very easy to change, I think.

Keep inspiring mate! ; )

THANKS for stopping by, and for the crit..always helpful, and very much appreceated..:)
Sorry that I have not written anything in your thread lately also.Will remedy that soon.:) ..This vase and figures coming out of it, is just burning me out a little...alot harder than it would seem,..working on a curved cylinder shape in relief..very tricky..but fun, and for sure a challenge...:)

Hey Glenn, I see you're in on the sculpting fun thread. :) Good thing to beef it up a bit. Lookin good so far. I read you wanted to maybe have wine flowing out. May I suggest you sculpt the giants arm out of it so it can serve as a handle for pouring? Functional design/sculpt? :bounce: Thought I'd share my wacky thought.

I will save that handle thought for the next carved piece that I do though, it's a good thought, and idea..I think...:thumbsup:

Hey Glenn,
great to hear you are selling your digital sculptures as real sculptures. So you don't need some sort of texture or scene ? You only need the model? :D
I had a thought on your vase, maybe it might be very cool to not only sculpt the vase but also paint it. Like a scene on the vase so all the guys have a background. Or were you planing this already?

Keep it coming!

HEY ..Icey...ALWAYS GREAT TO HEAR FROM YOU..Whether you be up or down.., IT ALWAYS GOES AND COMES AROUND :) I like the one that you mentioned also...too many choices to choose from as usual..:eek:

Thomas...I didn't say that I had any of these ideas made into realife sculptures YET,...I will as soon as I am sure that I have one that is likely to sell..it cost alot to make a vase in realife..:eek:
Right now that shop that I have my stuff in, is just selling jewelery boxes with inlaid tiles of my digital paintings, and prints, calenders ect...just small peanuts..the real money, is in the sculptures that they sell in that shop,..that's why I have been, and am trying to master this 3d technique...closer to it, than I was six months ago..so i'm heading in the right direction anyway..LOL :scream:
I like your idea for a painted surface...maybe a deep blue on the vase part..would act like sky, and make the figures pop out, adding depth to the whole piece...plus people sometimes like blue..you never can tell what they like, it's usually what you least expect, or want them to like..about your work..LOL..:eek:

Ivory for the head, arms, hands, legs, and feet/hooves.,..and gold for the armor....maybe ivory inlayed into the gold armor..just thinking out loud here...:)

Amrinder...THANKS..I don't know if it is the propper way to sculpt a figure in 3D,..but it is alot of fun doing it this way anyway...plus the computer never slows down doing it this way, because each subtool has it's own memory, and acts as a seperate unit in the total memory log of the computer..only reads one subtool memory at a time, instead of alot of memory when you subdevide in the regular way with a figure...no overloading or slowdown while sculpting...GREAT.. :)

Hey Glenn,

That Subtool thing looks interesting. Looks like you´re sculpting in different Layers. 8-)

Anyway. At this point it´s kind hard to see where you´re going with this...probably because I just saw people sculpting in ZB using a base model or ZSpheres, when the base model and pose is already there...

But that´s your magic. And it´s nice to following it everyday. Keep going.

I can see you´re going further in your scultpure. Nice too see how you´re using some "traditional" tools and knowledges to reach your goals: the spheres for the arm reminds me some of the Hogarths great tips for foreshortening.

So, I don´t want to disturb your creation-time with points and gaps that I´m seeing here and there... just keep it flowing.

Anyway. If you don´t mind just one question... :0)

What about their head and neck? Looks so small and fragile if you compare with the robust mass of his body. Probably is just a proportional issue (scale of the head)... take a second look at it and tell me what you think...

Keep sculpting! ;-)

Agnaldo ....HEY...THANKS FOR POINTING THAT HEAD AND NECK THING OUT TO ME...Sometimes, while working on the smaller things, I tend to lose sight of the bigger things...Glad you caught that error, before I went any further..THANKS AGAIN..:thumbsup: :)
TAKE CARE
Glenn

This guys head and neck were getting smaller as I added bulk to his shoulders, arms, chest, ect..so I made his head, and neck bigger, to go better with the rest of his body...Also just playing some with materials and lighting...Still a long ways to go yet..:)

Hi Glenn, this character reminds me of
Pan (the lord of all satyrs)...


“Thou, to whom every fawn and satyr flies
For willing service; whether to surprise
The squatted hare while in half sleeping fit;
Or upward ragged precipices flit
To save poor lambkins from the eagle’s maw;
Or by mysterious enticement draw
Bewildered shepherds to their path again;
Or to tread breathless round the frothy main,
And gather up all fancifullest shells
For thee to tumble into Naiads’ cells,
And, being hidden, laugh at their out-peeping;
Or to delight thee with fantastic leaping,
The while they pelt each other on the crown
With silvery oak apples, and fir cones brown—
By all the echoes that about thee ring,
Hear us, O satyr king!" ~ from Endymion (John Keats)
:)

Theme of the vase is..Polyphemus #13 in the workshop selections,..Son of ZEUS, and the woman that scorned and then blinded him. I also put a swan in the water which is ZEUS, who often takes the form of a swan, as he lures and seduces unknowing women, which would be the other woman sitting on the rock washing her hair in front of the swan ...LEDA and the SWAN.
The vase is in the style of ancient GREEK sculpture, and the themes on it, are taken from ancient GREEK MYTHOLOGY

This morning, I explored some of the amazing new sculpting tools that are in the new Z BRUSH program...I used this sculpture of PAN that I created to experiment with those brushes on. Discovered that the smooth brush, not only smoothes,without distorting, but it also brings out the metal look in the sculpture when you smooth over an already rough surface...like his beard, hair, forhead, nose ect....Just like polishing real life metal in certain areas that you want to capture light on,...when working with the model that has the metal material on it..:)
Also working on his hair,..getting away from that raked look, and going for a more real look..experimenting with new brushes to get there..Still in sub devision level #1...no computer/memory slowdown :)

Hi Glenn,
Great to see that you have gotten hold of Ryan Kingsliens Rough maquette.The pose is nice you have gotten good with the transpose tool :).
I would love to see more work from you based on a base mesh.
Here is a good base mesh by Sam a.k.a .Arshlevon of MB forums I use it a lot.
and a base head by Jaques Defontaine also from mb forums which is very cool.

take care and regards

Siju
