Start my WIP, hope that keeps me to be motivated to make decent image in the end, since it is only a hobby for me.

I'm starting with my gorilla, head was posted also by me in a different topic (now with slightly modifications ). I will try to give him a better neck and extremities. Also a fur is planned to be done in Blender.

Critics and tipps are welcome :)

thanks Peter

Looking great so far. So you will retopo for posing before the fur? My curiosity wonders what size the file is , whether you worked low to high polys -started off with primitives -used curves for the limbs - that kind of thing? Always curious to read other users findings.

@all: Thank you all for the kind words,

@Candy-floss Kid.
what do you mean with size? I basically started with the head deforming a primitive sphere (i think it was the smallest one) and then increase the resolution step by step up to 6x. The torso was mostly using curves at lowres and going up for detailling (for arms i used human reference, only kinda stretched). Hands and feet are the one with the greatest resolution (7x).
All on seperate layers (head, torso, hand, foot).
I did the typical gorilla quadruped pose also, but i found out,that it wont giving me the opportunity to repose/ rig it.

Yes, i need to retopo, but that would be the first one for me, hehe. So i didnt have motivation for that until now, since i dont know if to retopo the seperate layers or retopo a merged body.

Cheers
Peter

Thanks Peter, it's great to read how you worked on this.

Here's video no1 on a great series on vimeo with regard retopo by Eric Kunzendorf - as Eric points out think of retopo like a puzzle that needs solved quietly and all should go well for you. Jump in and learn on the job , the other tips and tricks you will pick up with further experience. The one thing you notice is how Eric splits the retopo task into logical sections of the face first in consideration of the edgeloop flow. Much voodoo is talked with regard retopo which can be scary - be not afraid it'll come to you easier than you might imagine I am sure.



Voxel layers would be fine btw - more importantly is whether while working you want to separate parts of the mesh into retopo groups / layers to make your life easier.

Test:

Created this jacob sheep by using only Move-brush and Smooth-brush.

These sheep are really strange with their four (and sometime even more) horns

They are strange! How did you get the 'fur' texture with "only Move-brush and Smooth-brush"?

An interesting take on the Sistine version. Presumably, the man would think twice if he could see the horns.

He could caress her with his nose and appreciate her scent at the same time. The tusks preclude anything more intimate.
