Arrow JC nunez (Dunkel) sketchbook

Hello!


Long time without posting!, I passed the last and a half year dealing with different personal issues that made me leave aside my passion, sculpt!


happily I´m returning to the path , now I feel very motivated to improve my work and go an step further in my carrer. so I taked a course with Kris Costa at Visualarium, and wow, what can I say, it´s being a very great experience so far, with a awesome group of people and a lot of knowledge to learn, and a lot of work to do.


we are at the middle of the program right now, so I want to show my progress here to collect even more helpful critiques. (also I posted at ZbrushCentral).



a little brief of my course project:

at the begining of the course, I discovered "die antwoord", a VERY controversial and disturbing south african band (with very catchy songs , a fresh and stylish look and a lot of bad words). maybe at a first glance you can find it shocking and hollow, but watching their videos a second chance, I think their work have a deep conceptual structure with symbolisms of south african cultures mixed with a badass sense of humor


well, in matter of tastes... (don´t judge me, is not the only kind of music that I listen )



this image is an inspirational/references board with some ingredients that I want to evocate. Beside Yolandi Visser (the singer), I´d like to include some elements from cyberpunk style, like ranxerox, gunnm and tanaka´s works.


this will be not necessarily a portrait, but I want to do something that evokes the energy and provocative proposal from the band.

progress images:
Character based on Yolandi Visser


this will be not the final pose, is more like a test pose homework (based on Scott Eaton work)


face and expression WIP


I´m refining the facial expression and working in the hair style, so more progress is coming.

In your section 'face and expression WIP' the facial expression on image 2 reminds me of Sigourney Weaver in Alien3.
