Please tell Matt that this is really something special that he's put together. After his inquiry today I was really thinking about it. I am so appreciative for the opportunity to meet with like minded people. I've been wondering where they all are and apparently it's everywhere but where I am
I think he is absolutely right that fabrication can be so much bigger with the right pushes and he's creating a new world of fabricators with his school. Everyday I wake up thinking "How F***ing cool is this!". Just today I learned some serious tips on latex foam, not to mention "wet foam" was never even a thought in my mind for creating large characters (foam latex is the heaven of textures) and now I can think of making giant creations without having to use 2 tons of clay to sculpt.
I also got great tips from the others classmates on things I have been looking for but couldn't find on the net. I don't think I'm alone in thinking this is the best thing ever
Troy and James. I love the pics that you've posted. Both projects are coming along beautifully. And Tom, love the video. This is directed at Troy's last comment. Don't try and rush to finish... and that goes for all of you. I want to see your progress and you must finish, but not at the expense of quality.
Keep your comments and questions coming. I'm trying to find them and answer them.
I'll also try to get through the live critique faster next time. I'd love to spend hours with all of you. I am as excited with your projects as I am with my own.
James, Your texturing is coming along very nicely. And I love the eyes as well.
Ciara! 12 HOURS?!
Tom, I'm enjoying the muscle structure you're adding. I can't remember if you are adding clothing or not. I would suggest that when you add the spandex that you maybe sew in between each muscle group. I KNOW... it sounds like a lot of work. But it will maintain all the wonderful work you've done on the muscles. But, if you're covering your character with clothing, then I wouldn't bother with the sewing sugestion.
Troy, the shorter neck does look much better. It looks as if your head could have been about 15% smaller. When you made your pattern, you made from the outer most shape. But now you've added to that shape to create texture. So of course the head is bigger.
I'm really impressed with everyones work. Keep it up!!!
