Took a bit getting used to the sculpting tools, and finding the best way to use them for the task at hand, but I'm liking a lot how 3D Coat works. Sculpted and textured the helmet in 3D Coat, and then rendered it in Marmoset Toolbag, and finished it in Photoshop, painting and photobashing the background, while fixing some of the textures and lighting.

Wow it took long time to finish this due to problems I faced with texturing and still lack of experience with marmoset and 3dcoat. at least I did my homework:D

Week 2 Homework for Hardsurface Sculpting. First time modelling a gun and a spacecraft, still way to go but big fun!

Hey guys, fun class! I was struggling to get up and running with the tools, but got more used to them towards the end. I used Blender Cycles for rendering

Awesome teachers with great teaching skills. It's not just a class, it's a family.

I mixed what I learnt from 1st lecture creating environment with the 2nd lecture to create hardsurface sculpting and tried to design a keyframe for a shot I had in my mind to try to give it also some storytelling.
