Hello, this is a character from a short film I am working on. I am learning mudbox for sculpting, and using Xsi as my primary software. Currently I am sculpting the characters face, these are a test to see how the forms are reading with lighting. I am trying for a older look to this character, wrinkles, saggy skin, and of course alien. I am happy with the muzzle so far but am getting stumped on the brow, always looks mad, and what I should do with the bottom mouth and jaw. I haven't touched the ears yet, I know what I want there. I have several anatomy books on my desk right now, seeing what might work for the lower face. Please let me know what you think could be changed or added. He does have a tiny bit of a dog face to him, which was what I wanted, now I just need to age him up. Also I keep hitting a out of memory problem when working in mudbox, I have 4 gigs and am running xp. Guess I need to upgrade?
Do you like the lighting, or is it still too flat? I know the skin looks plastic, I over ran the spec to see the forms better. Also there is no textures on his face, just the eyes.
