Ryan SketchBook WIP


It has been some time since my last post here. Below is what I am currently working on.

Just about done with this Batman bust and started on a violin. Just practicing and trying to get better.


Hey man, how did the bust and the violin turn out?

I really like the start you got on the violin, it looks solid!


The Batman Bust turned out great. I am very happy with it.
Below is my current progress on the Violin. It is coming along. Working on my UVs at the moment and fixing some details. It is never ending lol.

I am glad you like it JeffHH, thank you for the comment.



Cool print dude, do you have your own printer at home or did you order it somewhere?
Violin looks like solid progress!


Thank you JeffHH

Here is my current WIP. Going for a stylized orc. My plan is to make a few different poses with different armor and make him into a toy like a figure. 2019-05-09


WIP Update The Orc Toy Concept


Orc Toy Update.

I am done with cutting up the body and making the joints. Next step is to cut up the armor and make it work with the body for printing.

Enjoy. If you have any question feel free to ask.


Here is an update on the one of the weapons that he will be using.


I am actually wondering, since I haven’t done too much printing.
I see that you just sort of stick the geo inside of the other geo on the orc, do you just do a dynamesh or something like that at the end of it?



Yeah, that is exactly right. At the end once I know the statue is in the pose and nothing else will be moved I dynamesh at a very high Rez so i do not lose any detail. Then you use Decimation master on it. That removed a good amount of polys but keeps the detail.

If you have something that is going to be on top of another peace and you want it to be printed you can use the boolean tool to make that part fit right onto of the other one.

Then you can save it out as an STL and send it to your printer guy or print it yourself. I am still very new to this but that is how I did my Batman bust.

Hope that makes sense.


Yeah that makes a lot of sense, thanks for the clarification!


Working on a new statue for a comic book company. Just for practice. So far I have this.
Here are the ref imaes that I am going off of.


This is my current WIP


Been working on a fan art peace. I am doing a Sabertooth statue from XMen 1992 costume design.
He is coming along. Let me know what you all think,


Update on the face. Still need to fix the fur and add detail but the base is there.


WIP Update
Working on the fur some more



I am not sure if any one is even looking at this but if you are and are following my progression please comment. If I do not see any comments then I am not going to wast my time. Here is an update on where I am at, at the moment. Still much more to do but he is getting there.


A big Update from what I had before. He is getting there still need to fix the hair, eyelashes, fur and then onto high detail work before keying for printing. Let me know what you think.


Yeah I noticed that the community is not as active as it use to be, keep posting man, not everyone is able to give great critique :smiley:

All I can say that the proportions look of, muscles are blown out but legs and hands short and dwarf like.


Thank you for the feed back, I will look at that some more.

Glade to see some ppl are here and active. I have noticed that most of the websites like zbrush central, polycount and this one, the activity has went way down. Just seems like ppl are more into Facebook and Instagram now.

It is a little bit of a bummer but o well.
