Viking Character Sculpting - Blender Timelapse


Zacharias Reinhardt writes:

Hi everyone!

This is something I wanted to do for a long time now. Finally, I had the time to put together a behind the scenes video of my Blender Viking sculpting I created during SculptJanuary 2017. It includes a narrated sculpting timelapse and an analysis part, where I show you, how I set up the procedural shaders and the lighting for the scene. Skip the bla bla at the beginning and start the viking timelapse at 04:30 min. ;)

The original concept was created by Johannes HelgesonGet some bonus content here (includes the .blend model and textures).

    Some interesting techniques there, Zacharias. A clean and compartmentalized process.

    It furthers my belief that Blender can be developed with features that streamlines some of this kind of workflow used.

    For instance, for the subdivided cubes that shaped in Edit Mode before you sculpt them in Sculpt Mode. Very useful, but Blender could do it smoother.

    I imagine a process where you can do this all from within Sculpt Mode and with some sort of adaptive extrusion feature where you can select on a face and extrude it using a gizmo.

    I hope Blender's Sculpt Mode can become as dependent on the viewport within Sculpt Mode as possible.

    More dependent on stylus-driven viewport gizmos, and less dependent on switching between Modes and using hotkeys.

    I hope some group of Blender devs target it someday. Just something to put on the agenda someday.

    Because Blender has some wild potential for streamlined 3D asset creation, even better than it already provides.

    Anyways, nice sculpt!
