Autodesk Mudbox || Pepper Practise and Fruit Bowl

Experimentation within the program Mudbox lends itself to the creation of complex surfaces using many vertices and it is possible to create UV maps using this program, making it a good way to streamline work. A downside could be the number of vertices involved in mesh creation that tends to take up a lot of processing power, however it is possible to export a normal map from the model, which helps to decrease process time.

Life Drawing || Charcoal Storyboard



I took the opportunity here to practise drawing fabrics using the reverse 'v' technique, as the figure we were referencing had a shirt and shorts on for a change. It worked well on a basic level, and i hope to apply it to my illustrations in time, perhaps to improve their overall quality or to further manipulate into more suggestive shapes.
