spyro sculpt: gemcutter by MrsDrPepper spyro sculpt: gemcutter by MrsDrPepper
yesterday i sculpted and textured this little guy, my third finished sculpture. i had a couple of attempts to sculpt a gemcutter from before (one was live on stream) that didn't quite sit right with me, so yesterday i decided to go for something closer to my drawing art style and the result was 10x better! much happier with this guy. i used a drawing i had a of a gemcutter in profile:
glimmers 2 by MrsDrPepper (top right) and sculpted over it to get the silhouette down

these are his flat textures, and a couple shinier materials are used on his eyes, nose, and helmet. none of the materials i have on the program were appropriate for the rest of his body, but the lighting i put on his textures alone give him enough depth and softness imo and i really like the result!

i also put the pre-textured sculpture on there so you can kinda see that i used many more segments this time than in my 2 previous sculptures (separate head, ears, arms, legs, eyebrows, nose, etc)

i want to sculpt a lot of spyro critters tbh...

I've said it on Tumblr and I'll say it again...this is pretty much the best thing I've ever seen. Which program did you use, if I may ask? I may want to try it myself someday.

thank you kari! i hope the sculpt more spyro stuff of course :D

i'm using a free program called sculptris:
i recommend it, it's very simple and straightforward and good for a more natural sculpting experience. it's not like modeling software with a million buttons and menus that you need to watch 3 hour-long tutorials to get you making a basic character shape. you just get in there and do it with a small handful of tools
