Some digital maquetting... and a kappa

This guy was meant to be a study of a generic male, for anatomy purposes you know... I tried sculpting it without symmetry to learn not to rely on it all the time and this is what came out! Digital sculptors be warned, this is what can happen to you when you rely on symmetry too much! ;) But this chap earned himself the name Jonny one Finger and is sporting his very own pair of undies here. Hard to understand sometimes as he only has one tooth, and whistles when he talks. A very clingy guy who likes to stroke your hair!

A sketch of the gillman. A quick study and homage to a classic design I've always loved.

... and a break away from the bad guy's at work, to do a Kappa at rest.

The digital maquettes were sculpted in Zbrush, just a couple of hours on each for fun. They were then rendered in Maya using MentalRay. Final comp in Photoshop. The Kappa was done with good old graphite!


  1. Ha! Love Jonny O.F - great sculpt and and full of character.

  2. Ohh mean a Kappa! recently saw they did a movie in Japan called "underwater love" staring a Kappa.

  3. Awesome stuff man, you sculpt like a demon and that kappa is really fresh! Look forward to what's next.

  4. 3 of my favouritest fulla's! thanks for the comments guy's!
    Stu - might have to check out that movie! have had a recent interest into these creatures!

    Greg - Jonny loves you too!
