When sculpting or drawing. do you rest your wrist on the surface of the tablet? or do you draw using your shoulder and elbow movements? or use both?.
What happened with your cool work called "Alien Priest"?! I loved that image!
beautifull artwork
I have learned allot from you, especially from you're intro to sculpting video, it really clicks with me as a zbrush artist in training.

Just a example of the stuff im learning from you're gumroad tutorials. its really helping me understand sculpting in whole new ways.

I hope to get a spot in you're mentorship as soon as its available again.
I can't remember if I already left a fangirl comment over how much I love your stuff.
(If not, here it is!)

I know this is a really broad question, that's usually difficult to answer but..
Do you have any certain processes or inspirations when you're designing inhuman lifeforms?
I'm obsessed with creature design but I can never seem to come up with anything decent on my own. It always ends up looking too forced or too generic..

I understand if you can't think of any specific advice to offer, just a bit fed up with my art block and figured it wouldn't hurt to ask some of my favorite critter creators :b
Thanks madkitty,

Actually, as cliche as it sounds, life drawing at the zoo helps a bunch. Understanding why animals are built the way they are is crucial in pulling from the many options out there. Knowing those reasons / rules also helps you break them and reach out beyond what is commonly scene. Hope this helps!
