and I've stolen a booze cup! I've been a bit MIA for a month or two; class is back in swing, time management has gotten worse, etc etc. However, I am taking a basic entry level 3d class where we've been learning lightwave. The stuff we've been making has been lackluster, basic shapes. I kicked it up a notch. I decided to start using the basic projects as a basis to make actual cool things. I'm using lightwave to create the low res forms, then throwing it into Zbrush (low res program to high res) for detail work. Then I decimate the poly count, since i'm sculpting in the millions instead of hundred, and bring it back into lightwave for rendering. We were told to make tea cupts using bevel and lathe methods. I said "F that" and decided to make a greek kylix instead. This is the low res version, since I had to cut rending time to like 10 min. I'll render out a much higher res one soon and port it here as well, so you can see more detail. Here's what I have so far. Heres the youtube from zbrush when it was a WIP: Heres a link to the the larger HQ. Again, only 10 min on the render. I'll put the realistic high res up after its done.
