Sir Ian

Next project was to sculpt/model, rig and animate a celebrity likeness or caricature! I chose to do a realistic sculpt of Ian McKellen.

Had a lot of fun with the high res sculpt, although... he started to get pretty creepy once I textured him. Uncanny valley ho!

This was still a good project for me though, because (besides learning how to animate faces) it made me realize that all the work I've done for school so far has been realistic-styled work. So, I'm going to try and make a more fun and stylized character for the next project, the boss character! Excitement!

First assignment of the new semester! I am going to be in zBrush 24/7 and I am SO HAPPY.
Anyway, just a quick one week warm-up assignment:

Oh! Also my portfolio site is sort of done! I'll have to move it out of my free Ringling webspace eventually, but for now check it out!
