Hi ...Guagua ....:thumbsup:
Was wondering if that horse has the ability to be turned around in space like the human
face that you created...so that a three quarter view ect. can be see, ...or coming straight
at the viewer, so that it appears to be in deep space.
I have not been able to figure out that part of Z BRUSH yet..:shrug: ....I know how to do the
relief or two and a half D, ....But have not been able to add the other side, to get the symetry
to make it a three dememsional figure that can be spun around in space, and viewed from
different angle's or positions. creating the illusion of deep space.
Was wondering if you have any other programs, such as PAINTER,....and also if you have any other Burne Hogarth books such as DYNAMIC ANATOMY...ECT.
At the monment, I am trying to combine my limited knowelage of Z BRUSH with my paintings
done in PAINTER # 9......example can be seen on last page of my anatomy thread....human
face....Z BRUSH, ....rest of painting,....HORSE ....LIONS ...ECT. done using PAINTER # 9..
Would like to know what you are planning to do with these figures that you have created.
Are you going for anamation scenes, or are you planning on doing something totally
different with them, like finished paintings ect.....just curious...
I really like that horse...but woud like to see some wind in the hair on it's tail and mane
That's just me though....:)
KEEP POSTING THESE, ....I AM REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING MORE.
Perhaps we can teach each other, what the other does not know, but would like to learn..:thumbsup:
04 April 2006, 04:48 PM
the horse was modeled use the zsphere,then make a polymesh.i have a painter come with a wacom tablet,so many brushes!:D i was little bit confuse about it ,but indeed it is a good artist tool.there's a smart symmetry under the tool-->deformation,you can ctrl click to mask one side you don't wanna change and hit that button,make your model symmetry.
recently i am aim for a better knowledge about creatures' muscle,the bone constructions,then i could modeling and sculpting more freely,i don't know animation currently,was planning skilled modeling and texturing before i moving into the wonderful field of animation,seems have a long long way to go:D ,all the models was posed by zsphere or in maya beforehand,and sculpt...sculpt..and sculpt..in zbrush, lol
it's my fortune to study with a artistic and warmhearted man :)
04 April 2006, 04:50 PM
April,23th a centaur sculpture
04 April 2006, 03:05 AM
Very cool work! It seems the body may be a bit small for the horse part of him? His arms also seem just a little large. But this is really impressive! :)
04 April 2006, 02:35 PM
your advice is very useful! i found that problem of the upperbody a bit small when i was almost finished last night.here i scale the upper part up a little,and modify the arm a bit,seems still need some refining, someday may be.:hmm:
04 April 2006, 02:40 PM
April 24th,continue Hogarth
04 April 2006, 06:18 PM
Hi guagua, :)
I still think the body could be almost twice the size it is now, but I don't know how difficult it would be to resize it that much. :) Nice to see a hand study! I think you have a great start, but I think the thumb seems a bit small, and perhaps needs to connect a bit better with the palm of the hand.
Great to see your work so far!
04 April 2006, 11:35 PM
If you look at the Boris Vallejo link :
The third painting in the first set of paintings is a centaur that might help you out on the proportions of yours. http://fantasy.bratsk.net/cgi/show.cgi?Id=3 (http://fantasy.bratsk.net/cgi/show.cgi?Id=3)
Also study his colors. If you want to learn about color, he is the man to do it from.
Study his paintings carefully and you will learn.
A great book on color theory:
“Capturing Radiant Color in Oils” by Susan Sarback, 1994
expensive - worth it if you can afford it. Might be in your library, don't know.
Another great book and the one that I learned the most about painting from:
“Painting Techniques of the Masters” by Hereward Lester Cooke
Out of print but maybe available used. I found it on:
for about $30 (USD)
I don't know if you have it already, but if you do not, you should get it for sure...great book
.....Dynamic Figure Drawing by....Burne Hogarth...:thumbsup:
Hope these help you out some. Looking forward to seeing more of your work and hearing from you.
Posted something for you about color on my anatomy thread.
04 April 2006, 12:24 PM
yes you are right.the thumb of hand is small indeed,the centaur maybe i'll remodeling someday,and texturing it,use the BORIS VALLEJO's picture for reference,thank as always.
thanks so much for the link! i saw this image years ago when i was in highschool just from a magazine,it was awesome,but didn't know author's name untill now:cry: BORIS VALLEJO :thumbsup: in fact that centaur i made was come from this picture in my memory. neither the book you recommend is availabe here,but i've downloaded Loomis's books in pdf,seems very useful as well.Burne Hogarth's,of course i have it,was translated in Chinese :D
04 April 2006, 12:39 PM
try some color mixturing,use yellow and purple
need speed up,so i use painter for sketch now
04 April 2006, 12:08 AM
Those drawings on the lower right are gorgeous! :arteest:Really lovely work! Would love to see more drawings like these! :)
04 April 2006, 02:35 AM
Really like those hands, wrist and forarms....GREAT...:applause:
Glad you refound ..BORIS..been one of my favorites for years now....over 300 paintings to
learn from on his site...colors ect.:scream:
Too bad that they don't have those books that I mentioned above where you are at...
they are really GREAT books...:shrug:
If you are interested in learning about paintingin colors and technique ect., then you might
want to join in on the...Open Figure Drawing Workshop....Rembrant Master Copy with Rebeccak
# 16.....found in the Artistic Anatomy and Figurative Art Forum....really great way to learn...
great bunch of people and talent in there...everyone helps everyone learn...nice friendly
envirorment....I just started my Rembrant painting today, and posted it in there, so that is
where I will be found for the next month...really think you should get in there, and start painting....there is a whole range of experience in there, from beginner to seasoned professionals.... it just started so ....GO FOR IT...:)
Also another class just started that you might be interested in....same forum..
3D Workshop...Digital Anatomy Sculpture...The Human Hand...with Simon Roth.
I just posted my first human hand done with Z BRUSH today....have already learned a lot from him in just two days....just thought I would mention it to you, in case you might be interested.
Really looking forward to seeing more of your work....drawings and paintings...:thumbsup:

Lovely studies, guagua, especially the fist at the top left. Peoples' sketches you would really like are those of DoctorBone and Thomasphoenix, whose work is linked here (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showpost.php?p=3505145&postcount=1).
Really enjoying seeing your work, your digital work looks exactly like pen studies!
05 May 2006, 01:51 PM
thanks for your encourage the links,Rebeccak:)
May 4th,copy from Hogarth and Ken Hultgren's Animal drawing
05 May 2006, 05:49 PM
Looks very good. I ike that kind of drawings. I have never realy tried, but I think that drawing animals must be very difficult. Your works might inspire me to try and draw some. But ah, first, the human figure =] Show me more!!
05 May 2006, 06:28 PM
The upper Hogarth studies and the lower horse / deer / dog / bear studies are really strong! Great stuff, looking forward to seeing more. :)
05 May 2006, 10:34 AM
GREAT little studies there.....like the deer jumping into and out of deep space...:thumbsup:
SOLID DRAFTSMANSHIP AND FORSHORTENING...:thumbsup:

Like that Z BRUSH sculpture.....a lot of character....subtle expression...:thumbsup:
KEEP UP THE great WORK,...A PLEASURE SEEING IT..;)
05 May 2006, 04:46 PM
Am really loving your studies ~ this one in particular is really good, especially in terms of the figure ~ do you ever do Frazetta studies?
Always a pleasure to see your work here. :)
05 May 2006, 02:00 PM
finally i forced myself to get into the painting,still can not get well with the painter's oil brushes,my oil painting looks really sucks,so i use the photoshop instead and paint by my own feel of colors,and combine with the layers technique.
at 1st,it is really a tough process,but as i paint more,start get a little bit comfort and confidence in painting.many thanks to Glenn and RebeccaK,i dont think i could make progress so quickly without your encouragement and suggestion:). i think its a nice start in my way of painting,cheers!:beer:
May 12th,copy from Boris Vallejo
05 May 2006, 02:25 PM

:thumbsup:Great Work. I really liked your ZBrush work and Hogarth studies...
You have also learned ZBrush on ur own???
05 May 2006, 03:30 PM
thanks,CgIcecube,glad you like it.yes i study on my own.
05 May 2006, 08:12 PM
Think your Conan came out fantastic! Thought it would make a great painting with color so I played with it for about 15 minutes in Painter 9.
Just spotlighted, adjusted contrast and blended colors with soft blending brush.
Hope you don't mind me posting this on your thread. Just trying to return the favor that you did for me with Zbrush
Here is a link to the method I use for spotlighting with color etc:
(post #198) A short tutorial I did about painting for Siju....If you have any questions on this technique feel free to ask me. And I will be more than happy to answer.

Great stuff, keep up the amazing work! :thumbsup:
05 May 2006, 03:39 PM
i think i'm a lazy toad:shrug: ,for 4 days not excercise too much.and because English is not my mother language,my reading speed is as slow as a snail. :banghead:

Really love that unicorn! (Of course, hehe~).
I love your soft shading, great work ^-^
05 May 2006, 05:35 PM
GREAT STUDIES....glad you are finding a use for that LIGHTING and COLOR TECHNIQUE...:)
PAINTER # 9....IN EFFECTS
APPLY SURFACE TEXTURE section...In that color chart with all the little squres of different colors...
if you go to bottom row,
third squre in...left side.. a nice green olive color...pick a medium to light shade of that color
apply to your painting
second squre in...left side..same row....nice golden olive color..has yellow in it...pick a light shade of that color....apply to your painting
and put on top of the first color
second row from bottom...left side...second box in....a nice brown...has orange in that brown...apply to your painting
put that color on top of the other two colors
TONAL CONTROL section
go to ajust color...slide middle bar...SATURATION... all the way to right and you will find... GOLD...:bounce: :scream: :)
TONAL CONTROL section.....Play with the BRIGHTNESS and CONTRAST
SURFACE CONTROL section....APPLY LIGHTING
Hit that gold with different colored spot lights, and MAGIC will happen ... ENJOY....:thumbsup:
That is the same method and colors that I used to get the golden color on the last set of Z BRUSH figures on my anatomy thread...posted yesterday..:)
05 May 2006, 01:37 AM

Nice start to your OFDW piece ~ you should feel free to post your WIPs to the OFDW thread as well. :)
05 May 2006, 03:50 PM
Like that painting your working on...colors ...GREAT ....would be a good one to try out some
of the oil brushes in PAINTER #9 on....impasto maybe, here and there, just to give it a little
variety of brushwork....good chance to experiment, and add to your technique....I agree with
Rebecca, you should post your painting in OFDW the forum she mentioned...a lot of great talent there. I am sure everyone there will help you take your painting technique to it's full potental....:thumbsup:
Also I want to THANK YOU for your help with my Z BRUSH problems...I will try what you just told me right now, and will post something tonight, useing the information and help you just gave me...THANKS AGAIN...Guagua...:)
05 May 2006, 05:02 PM

Just stopping by your thread to see if there is anything new...really like the feel of that
master copy that you just did ....can really get a sense of the heat in it...GREAT JOB on
the figure, and the whole painting ....nice brush work and color....:thumbsup:
Did not see it on that finished painting section that Rebecca posted...you might want to mention that to her....she probably just overlooked it...:)
HAVE YOU DONE ANYMORE ...BORIS STUDIES.....or Z BRUSH studies...would really like to see them if you have...:thumbsup:
11 November 2006, 06:55 AM
finally the lazy toad has some time to upload his recently works :shrug:
11 November 2006, 09:28 AM
Wow, nice work. The head look great, a bit more work on the shader, the beard and hair not just the texture and you'll have a freakin nice looking low poly head! Is it for some personal project? Planning to animate? Tell us more, please :) And, how many polys are there now?
The study from Frank Frazetta is astonishing. The one thing that really bothers me is the writing! Other than that, great! Looks really cool.
You should post your work more often, it's really something to look at and enjoy.
11 November 2006, 11:01 AM
Beautiful work in your thread. Have added it to those I like to watch.
11 November 2006, 02:56 PM
Great thread you've got here! Wonderful drawings and great 3D work! Keep on going.

It's been a long time I haven't posted anything,play online games do waste a lot of time,I think need more exercise,here is my recent self-challenge,the concept art was downloaded from warhammer 40K,the result is not 100% match the concept,and lack something i think it's "strength".
the original concept art
head modeling in Mudbox
the IBL rendering of the head
point view of the hand
and the whole body
07 July 2007, 01:56 AM
I always admire great concept arts,those artists are so talent and skillful.
today I start my new self-challenge,the character is sanguo hero Zhang Fei,I'll post the progress often.
07 July 2007, 01:23 AM
Just wow! Did you do the original concept art as well? :)
07 July 2007, 04:21 AM

Would be lovely :)
looking forward to see your Zhang Fei develop
07 July 2007, 12:04 PM
You have quite the talent there. I looked through your book and all of it is really good. I especially like your Warhammer character, I used to paint and play the model game all the time years back. Keep up the good work!
07 July 2007, 06:45 AM
Thank you,Glenn,my friend,you are right,the only winner of those online games is the operator.
NR43,Thank you,in fact I don't have any recent drawings/sketches,like mentioned before,I'm a lazy toad,but I'll do more exercise form now on.

Great thread here.....I missed it before....
I love your 3D work....Its got STYLE!

Would love to see more updates....
