Character design + 3D sculpt
2w
Rubén Frutos
Hey Guys! I haven't been active at all in the last month, but I was pretty loaded with class work. This is a character I had to design for class. The description I was given: "British spy. Female. Shanghai. 1937" After getting to the desired design, I had to scultp the character in Zbrush. This was my first ever full figure done in 3D, so it was quite challenging. Let me know your thoughts!! Thanks!

The colors are interesting, those purple tones on the skin reminds me of Leyendecker, i also like that you took care of the hairstyle to fit in the 30s, one thing i could say about it is that you have some room to improve your shapes, make exaggerations of some parts so you get stronger silhouettes, you can try it putting another kind of dress on your character or making bigger bumps of hair. I also think that the casted shadows on the iteration's page are not right, you have a strong rim light behind her, made with hard edges, so the casted shadow on the ground should use hard edges as well, i feel like that could improve the presentation

Also I was wondering... I rewatched recently this video by @Trent Kaniuga https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gPkbciJ8wCU , where he talks about the importance of creativity in the designs that you put in your portfolio. And since this design doesn't really bring anything new to the table, should I include it in my portfolio? Maybe after I'm done with my classes I could revisit this character and add something new and unique to it, more than just a pretty lady in a night dress... What do you think?? Thanks for reading!

Just an idea to offer something...break the stereotype and throw something in there that is completely unexpected but somehow hidden in plain sight.

I'm impressed, and doubly impressed that it is your first ever full figure in 3D! You have obviously put in a lot of practice time and are very talented. I'm trying to find something to help, the only things I have to offer are: somehow she looks too modern for the 30s to me, maybe the fabric? I can't pinpoint exactly what it is though, sorry. The other is perhaps a little more value in the featured close ups (the hair mainly everything else looks good.)

Thanks a lot Crystal! The figure is fully done in Zbrush, which is quite limited in materials, and since I'm no expert, I guess I didn't finesse that part. I'll try to do a rendered version using Photoshop and figure out that part there. Anyways, thanks for your comment, I really appreciate it! :)
