I call this “Bads” because I listened to Oyaarss album “bads” on repeat while painting it. This is also my first painting where I used Zbrush to get me a base scketch. Basically I created an ugly model that roughly had the right volumes and then added light where needed.
I didn’t, however, go entirely with this “base sketch”. I took some fairly obvious liberties with the lights and shadows, purely for stylistic reasons and such. But it definitely gives me hope that Zbrush might become part of my regular workflow.
Even if in this case it slowed down my progress to twice the usual speed. I took far too long to fiddle with the “base sketch” and lights, whereas I would have normally just started painting and “go for it”.
