For the head sculpture assignment I started off using Maya but moved to Mudbox!

Here are the reference images of Siobhan:

I used the tutorial below to learn about the brushes in Mudbox:


Here’s an early stage of the head sculpt:

I was having a few issues with a few of the brushes, they didn’t seem to be having the same effect on the sculpture as they did in the tutorial but I tried my best to work round this.

Here is the finished head sculpture, it doesn’t have as much detail as I would have liked it to but I struggled with getting the brushes to cut detail into the model.

Then I used the video below to help me with importing the sculpture into Mudbox to start retopology.


Here are some screenshots from this process:

I really enjoyed this assignment but wish I could have worked out how to properly use the brushes. I am going to work on learning more about Mudbox over the summer and will hopefully improve!
