I practiced this week by free handing a wolf skull from photo references. It's pretty inaccurate from a scientific point of view, but still looks cool, I guess. Total modeling time was about 2 hours. :)

    This was only the second full-body dragon that I've ever modeled in any software. The first one was nearly a decade ago. There are a lot of features I don't like, some I do. The hands need a lot of work, the hind legs are kinda wrong, especially the ankle joint. The hind feet came out okay, though. I'm still trying to learn where muscles need to go. Anywho... I might practice adding wrinkles and veins, redo the hands, and add more detail to the skin overall later this week. 

    Total modeling time was 3 hours 45 minutes.

    Better hands... still needs some tweaking. Also, I've uploaded this model to my gallery.

    This is kind of a street tough sort of guy. I haven't modeled many humans, so I was glad when this turned out as well as it did. Total modeling time was about 40 minutes.

     Very good natural naturalistic effects. The rocks, the trees, even the blades of grass. Did you have to do the grass blade by blade?  The patience required makes me shudder!

    I made a comb-like stamp and kind of took advantage of low frame rate to randomly paint in the grass. It went pretty quickly.

    The tree bark, on the other hand, was a real pain. Every line of bark was manually painted, and I had to go slow enough to prevent aliasing.

    Seriously impressive man! I hope you can finish it, the pose is awesome! It's like a Yin-Yang :)

    Holy shit, mate, that surface detail is above and beyond. It's making my arms sore just looking at it. And yeah, alphas (both sculpt and paint) have been pretty much items 1 thru 500 on my wishlist since day one.
