Custom brush testing





I made some custom brushes in Photoshop trying to replicate charcoal and conte, these are just some early tests put on paper textures. I wanted the brush to act like the side of a conte stick so I could block in a form and still have lots of texture show through.

Zebra sculpt




So today I tried sculpting a Grevy's zebra and here are some progress photos. The legs are in the early stages and I still have to fix the anatomy and smooth out areas. It was a bit difficult to get the model to balance on the thin legs but it stands by itself now. I will post more pictures when its baked and painted.

Sharks

I was watching a shark dissection while sketching these. I haven't drawn them much so it was interesting to learn more about their weird anatomy.

Hippos
