Archer Lady Sibill WIP3 by YBourykina
Archer Lady Sibill WIP3
Switched to Archer for a bit, doing her textures, her low poly is around 6.76k, she's going to be diffuse ONLY, 2048 x 2048 (painting at 2048, no sizing down) :)
current shot is from Marmoset 1 with the Flat Environment shader.

this is a *ROUGH* bake from my sculpt, so it isn't pretty yet XD
bake is from topogun, i baked out a color map (because i polypainted the skin and eyes in zbrush), AO map, and a Skylight map. I baked each version with 0 cage and with 10 cage, some areas still popped out so i did a 20 cage for the AO and Skylight.

My maps in photoshop are currently set up:
Skylight Folder (top) is set to Soft Light, with 50% Opacity.  
AO Folder (second) is set to Multiply, with 50% Opacity. BOTH have a Hue/Saturation Adjustment to inject an Tannish/Orange into the maps.
Color folder (bottom) with normal 100% settings, underneath that is just a 50% grey :)

no idea what colors i am going to go with, if Paul throws some at me i will go with those

Jenesis WIP 1
back to my elementals project, scrapping the armour version of jenesis and going with her base design first.
i get asked about the hair a lot, there are actually 2 big dynameshed pieces for the front and back and then i created individual strands with the curve strap snap brush which i haven't sculpted yet, so they're just subdivided once right now XD
wip :)

video on the curve strap snap brush that i tend to refer to: Zbrush Quick Tip- Curve Strap Snap Hair

I think you're the first female 3d artist I've seen (artwork) so far apart from a friend and Sakimichan's casual head sculpt on fb >.< You have some interesting artworks and I can't wait to check out your gallery some more :>

(I also want to model but it's kind of...difficult to say the least lmao)
