A quick update on the proportions of the heavy man, now definitely more ape-like, looking at some concept work for Mr Hyde from Leage of Extraordinary Gentleman for proportions ( no genitalia at this stage, that will come with the detailing) .
Well, finally back to to an older sculpt,originally blocked out and re-topo-ed in 3DCoat and now working in Zbrush. Yes I have been looking at a lot of hulk sculpts and insanely proportioned body builders out there, but I am still unsure of where I want to take this guy. He is currently about 7 heads tall, longer arms than is normal (even for a hulk wanna -be), so I guess I better start with a back story, so bear with me.
OK - The Troglodyte AKA Heavy man, lives in the jungles of central Africa, a giant hairless (albino) apelike creature with a taste for vegetables and when available human flesh. As intelligent as your average human, he and his clan have avoided contact for centuries, whispered of as the great white ape around smoky camp-fires of the Pygmy people (not be confused with the colonials - who were known as the lesser great white ape by the indigenous). A skilled jungle hunter and forager who stands 9ft high in Tapir loincloth (to be sculpted).
So from that (plus some knowledge filtering down from the Scott Eaton class) I think I need to ape him up a lot more, change increase the proportional differences between him and a human being- still a little too human at the moment. So will keep posting.
I have just started with Scott Eatons anatomy classes. I have just started doing the studying/drawing Human Anatomy on-line classes, which will be completed over the next eight weeks.
If you are interested in Scott's' courses look here:
Anyway back to watching, looking, reading and understanding (and drawing or course - its been a while since I have done that!).
