If any of you are familiar with my other website this is basically an extension of that. I'll be posting updates of my recent personal and professional work here from time to time. Stay tuned...

A small bit of work

I've been working on my base model on and off. She's still only on sub-division three, which would actually be sub-division 4 as my base mesh is more detailed than usual (see the wireframe here). I'm sticking to this level of detail for now until I have most of what's needed before sub-dividing her more.

I've also been working on my Punk Girl on and off. I need to swap out the old mesh with the new retopologised mesh in ZBrush so that I can bake the normal maps. I've been doing some tests by bringing the new retopologised  mesh into Zbrush, but I'm getting spiking which sucks ass (strangely enough I never had this problem with my female base mesh when I tweaked the mesh's topology and brought it back into Zbrush). I also tried re-projecting instead, setting the PA Blur to 8 as suggested, but that didn't help too much - still getting weird spikes in the ears, eyes and mouth areas. If it becomes too painful I might just bake the normals in xNormal.

Edit: For some reason the hand thumbnail seems to be a different colour to what it is meant to be?!?



  1. Great work Gary ! The face is amazing :)

  2. Thanks Serge. I've made a few small subtle changes since. I've also added indentations to the eyes for the pupil, which makes the eyes come alive.
