Hey, so I have been using Medium more as a collaboration space with clients using existing models, but decided to start doing my own thing :)

Decided to do a quick doodle myself to figure out workflows between it and Substance and Redshift renderer .. Was super quick, gave me an idea for a proper sculpt which I will chronicle here :)

    Thanks! Your stuff is awesome too! The Angel of Death is my second sculpt and a proper project (the one above was just messing about and learning the tools). I really want a 3d Printed version once I am done.

    I am so addicted now.

    There needs to be a way to export them for Oculus Home integration! I want that statue next to my Wibwom statue.

    I'm pretty sure it's been mentioned before it's in the works! :)

    Painting the normal Map .. have a day off today so focusing on making this awesome!

    (for those who might not know) A normal map allows adding fine details to a model. It's not real geometry but it responds to light and ambient occlusion just like it was.

    Coming along nicely. Hair is just an experiment, will probably not be in the final version. I want to sculpt the wings and armour for it .. that's next on the agenda.

    Starting to block out rest of the upper body .. I want something regal and ancient almost necromantic feeling.

    Result! Glad you like it. Nothing worse than bigging up software only to find out the  other person hates it

    Oh my gosh, I always shied away from software like that as it was overly complicated. I have used ZBrush before .. its great but Medium changed me ... The Substance suite has done the same thing for me with regards to finishing and texturing. I found a twitter post detailing your story where you yourself haven't really been a 3d artist before .. and that Medium has unlocked that potential in you. Can't wait to see what you do next!

    Yeah, mate, it's a total trip. I always understood the basics but I was in a place where there was so much technical stuff to wade through before I could even begin with the art-part that I just got fed up and sacked it. With medium I've been able to iterate through the art bit so quickly and effortlessly that now I feel like I'm coming at it from the other end - I have a finished sculpt now and that gives me the motivation to learn the technical crap to polish it up.

    So, decided to start the next project, a full body anatomy exercise (this is my 2nd proper sculpt in VR), ... but to do that I needed a head .. so decided to do a quick half an hour session tonight ... well .. Half a bottle of wine and 2 hours later .. .... I have started creating the head, where did the time go?!  It's going to be an angry orc!

    Will be posting my updates on the project here, like before, from the head to body to full texture. I am so excited!

    From someone who has never done a full 3d creature sculpt .. to being able to make anything effortlessly ..

    So here is the rough start on the head.

    Go for it!!! One piece of advice, based on recent experiments - if you're planning a retop then sculpt the medium stage with that in mind. Little details like filling in the eye sockets then dupe the eyes and do a boolean subtract to get clean shapes at the back will save a ton of arsing around at retop stage. Basically don't leave any jaggy, porous areas even if you think they're going to be hidden.

    Also I'd advise resisting the urge to break symmetry until after retopping because then you only have half the work to do.
