I wanted to share my progress on a character that I’m doing. I’m going for a dwarf, based loosely on this lovely concept by Joris Dewolf https://www.artstation.com/artwork/EYLNv. Just loved the boldness of the features and the giant head looks like it would be lots of fun to do 🙂
I’m an environment artist in my day-to-day job, so this is all pretty uncharted territory for me! I’ve created a character before (if you could call it that. It was pretty terrible!), but this is my first real attempt at a character from scratch. I would really appreciate any feedback at this early stage, as there’s probably a lot of glaring errors that I’m not seeing. The flipped normals videos have helped me so much after a friend recommended them to me, partly what stimulated me to try my hand at characters.
So I started by creating this base mesh from a dynamesh sphere and then zremeshing, and then adjusting his proportions to resemble something closer to a dwarf. I then began to sculpt into him and add some muscle details.
