This past Sunday I downloaded the 3D sculpting program Sculptris (it’s free software, you can get it here.) I haven’t attempted to sculpt anything in roughly a bazillion years. On top of that, I’ve never really tried to mess with 3D sculpting software. So I was pleasantly surprised at how easy the software was to just leap right into.
I mean that in terms of just getting started. I still basically have no idea what the hell is going on. Over the last few days when stepping away from the drawing table for a break, I have been trying to spend more time learning with it. If nothing else it’s kinda fun.
So I thought I would share a few screen shots of my fumbling ahead in figuring out what I’m doing. Most of it really doesn’t look too bad. At least I think anyways.
These first couple are the very first thing I did with the software. I started out with playing around with my character “E-no” from my old Jungle Planet comics.
I was mainly trying to play around with the different settings, lighting and whatnots.
I did this one later that night before going back to my drawing table.
I also did a bit of color on him, but (believe me) you don’t need to see that.
Yesterday I started on a sculpt of me (or of my TreeBeerd version of me, I guess.) I have made it my hour or so in the afternoon project for the week. Just trying to use the different tools and play with some stuff. Just something I am playing with when taking a breather from all the other drawing.
That’s where that’s at at the moment. No where near finished and it may even be quite some time before it is. I am realizing some miss-steps I made along the way and look forward to finding more!
It’s fun learning this. I look forward to sharing more in the future hopefully.
