Rhino Base Mesh

Here's the base mesh for the rhino sculpt in the previous post. Modelled in Silo.

This is a model I've had hanging around for ages from way before I started the blog. I never got around to posting the finished sculpt on my web site and didn't have any screenshots of it when I came to put the blog together. I remembered I had it when doing some backing up and decided to do some screengrabs.

I think it was the first full model I sculpted and I didn't UV map it before I stated the sculpt. I've had terrible problems importing UVs with this model. It always blows up or the UVs don't propogate up the subdivision levels. Possibly because it's very small compared to Mudbox's default models and I'm having tollerance issues or some other unknown reason. Whatever the reason, I can't at this stage easily paint it.

Format Change

I've decided to change the format a little to have fewer images but with more angles in each like the hand anatomy study I posted recently. That way I won't end up filling the front page with lots of images of the same model.

Hand Pointing Anatomy Study

Here's a set of hand anatomy studies I've been working on this week.

I've been planning on doing some anatomy studies for a while and then just as I start one model, a related weekly challenge pops up on Wayne Robson's Mudbox Hub so I thought I'd take time out to do that one.

This is my own hand sculpted directly from life. You can't get better reference than that but it's not easy to hold the same pose. Nor is it so easy to have to use the hand for working keyboard shortcuts.

I plan to do some other poses when I get the chance.

Anatomy Study Standing Posed Woman Stage1

I've been meaning to get around to doing some anatomy studies for a long time. This one is using the Stephanie free sample images from

It's only at subdivision level 1 so far. I'm still messing about with the basic form and pose at the moment.

The model is based on the Mudbox Human Body. I didn't want to spend time on the base mesh this time out.
