Scar, The Lion King

Latest Disney sculpt, Scar from Disney's The Lion King. A challenge no doubt, but I had somewhat of an easier time after the shere kahn sculpt. As always, Zbrush is my MO, starting with a sphere and using dynamesh. I made some adjustments that were not captured in the timelapse, because I had taken it to the point where I was ready to upload, but I spotted a few things that were off. This turned out to be a blessing in disguise, the final image ended up turning out much better than the first one.

Long live the king.

Hercules

My latest Disney classic, Hercules. I was able to catch this on ABC family, so I recorded it. (I wish they showed the classic more often) I paused occasionally to take photos of Hercules for reference. I think challenging was a bit a bit of an understatement. At some point the thought of giving up crossed my mind, because early on it looked nothing like Hercules. I had to throw in some of the pieces so that it could somewhat resemble him, which allowed me to make major tweaks until I was happy with the way it turned out. As always, it begins with a sphere in Zbrush with dynamesh.
