Wendigo Round II

So a Wendigo is a spirit from Algonquian Native American mythology.  It possesses humans transforming them into disgusting flesh-hungry giants.  Those possessed have an insatiable cannibalistic appetite.

Thanks so much again to Bryan who gave me a bunch of tips (more planar!  exaggerate!) on how to improve this guy, and even did a quick sculpt-over when I was stuck.

More on the way!

Keeping that momentum going

Here's what I did with my superbowl weekend:

A Yeti and a Wendigo, respectively.  Both in progress -- I'll post the finishes when they're done.

... and some more finished stuff

See, I told you I'd have some new stuff up!  This is a character I have been developing for my second independent study with my good friend Bryan Wynia.  An "Atlantian Prince": basically an undiscovered race of fishlike people that lives deep in the ocean.

I tried to actually sculpt out the transparent brain cavity (and brain -- went through several iterations of that) instead of just painting it.  Here's the color turnaround without all of the flashy materials and paintover:

Since this process is still kind of new to me, I thought I'd share some development.  Here's an earlier sculpt of the still unposed character:

And some early pose/expression testing:

Some paintovers to figure out some more subtle aspects of my design:

Thanks for looking!  New(er) work on the way!
