sketch in Photoshop
not final design. but roughly how it will look like and the pretty final proportions
basemesh done in MAX.
took me a few days to model. did not manage to decide how the back and hair would look like but because of time constraints, i moved on to ZBRUSH anyway
sculpted in ZBRUSH
im still very new to zb. so i think it did not look refined.. and not as good as the image i had in mind :P
changes were made.. no more armour and he looks more like a gorilla+turtle than a bear. but not too bad
will model the crystals that will be his new natural armour.. whatever that would look like.
a week left! ><
