Old vs New

Comparison of my old Wolverine (my first portrait sculpt I did in ZBrush) to my latest one.


Old one: Done in one month in 2015 October, sculpted, fibermesh, polypainted & rendered in ZBrush (single pass), eye proportions is all the way off. Learned a lot of everything from ZBrush sculpting to anatomy. Used a lot of ref.


New one: Done in half a day, sculpted in ZBrush, ZRemesh & RizomUV for low-res & UV, textured in Substance Painter & rendered with RedShift in Maya. No ref, all from imagination.

Added PDF Format to my Tutorials, launching my Patreon page & Sales Reminder

Hi fellas, how are you? I hope you all doing well staying at home and staying out of reach of the Corona virus.

Previously my tutorials came with JPG images. I find it's not so convenient to read them, so I added PDF formats to my existing tutorials:


- The Making of King Arthur - A 3D Character Tutorial (gum.co/arthurtut)
- Making Torn Fabric in SP (gum.co/fabrictut)

I hope it makes it easier for you to read my tutorials.

So one more thing.

I've been thinking about this for a while and I think it's time to let you know: I will launch my Patreon page, so that you can pay a small amount of monthly fee to access to my cool stuff or promotion codes.

On this Patreon page, I will make 3D Prints models of Pop culture collectibles, Likeness heads of celebrities & Original designs (Statues, Wacom pen holders, Keycaps, Masks, Jewelries...)
This is just my plan but it will mostly depend on you, my future supporters. If you have anything that you like & want me to create, or any suggestion to tier price, or tier rewards, let me know. You can contact me via links below, don't hesitate.

I ran a quick poll and this is what some of my followers want:

Another Kobe Bryant WIP

Update on Kobe's body.

Just finished early stage of clothing and added a pair of Air Jordan 8 on his feet. Rather than going for fully realistic clothes I modified it a bit to be easier to print later.

Stay tuned!
