best of luck mate, its looking good so far, maybe alittle bumpy in places, but a nice start

03 March 2007, 12:38 PM
Yo Eddie, thanks, glad to hear from you. Are you in this challenge too? Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

03 March 2007, 04:33 PM
yer, i want todo anthony hopkins but im having a nightmare finding a profile picture

03 March 2007, 06:29 PM
Eddie, glad you're gonna be onboard. Somebody posted a Hopkins on ZBrush central a few months back, fall - timeframe. I remember there were some neat reference pics posted to thread by others to help the guy.

Try doing a search on the site, hope you get lucky!

If you're Hannibal is half as good as your Medusa, it will be awesome!

Great start Will, can't wait to see it textured. Looks just like Cary, are you going to sculpt in some more of the hard details (creases) or work with bump/normal maps?


03 March 2007, 12:04 AM

Thanks for your words of encouragement. I hope to take this to the pores with ZBrush diplacement maps.

Looks like you've made a good start on King Arthur! Good Luck!

Had to go back to Silo and remirror the base mesh. A couple of verts didn't make the transition to ZBrush. I fixed the topology. I started over from the base mesh in ZBrush.

Here's the latest tool with painted texture and light displacement.

03 March 2007, 07:33 AM
Awesome Start man. Absolutely looking forward to seeing your final piece if it's looking this much like Carey in the beginning.

03 March 2007, 07:38 AM
Hey willbrown, this is looking fantastic, i like the 2nd head much better than the first one u did on zbrush, i just wish i knew the character a litle better ( i guess im too young ) but its looking really good compared to the ref pics you posted. keep it up.

I can see that the model is Cary Grant, did you use 3D painting tools? I have not used those before in maya. Or are you going to texture him?

I painted the texture in Projection Master in ZBrush. I plan to texture using alphas for pores.

AndreKing, thanks. Cary Grant was a major Hollywood star. His work for Hitchcock was outstanding. Worth a look.

Victorius, thanks.

Wow great....:thumbsup:
You are very fast....
good luck

I really didn't like the first two base meshes, so, on Friday I started again from a box.

I then moved it back into ZBrush and here's the result.

Carrara renders. Normal and displacement maps on base mesh for high-res detail. all maps generated in ZBrush.

Ok here are some renders done in Carrara. Working on Hollywood glamour lighting.

You have a very good model that meets the requirements of the challenge.
If you have not done so already, you should post it on the voting thread:
