This week, I continued working on Zhul'Thun's sculpt, and am currently in the middle of retopologizing him.
There was a lot of back and forth with him, especially in terms of redoing the back branches, as well as the foot design. Based on quite a few critiques, I decided to change his foot from hoof-like to more of a human foot to mach his hands. I'm pretty happy with how the back branches turned out.
This is the result:
I started retopoing since Wednesday, and while I'mn able to use some pieces from the old low poly, a lot of it had to be redone. It's still been a lot of work. I still have to finish up the rest of the hand, the back branches, the feet, and a few missing spots in scattered places. I'm hoping to finish this before the end of the day tomorrow. Ideally, I'd like to start texturing by tomorrow night.
Here's the progress on my Retopo:
In terms of school, I'm waiting to hear if any of my pieces made it into Spring Show. *Fingers Crossed*!
And even more importantly, it's less than 2 weeks before my Thesis Presentation. I'm rushing to finish, but I think I'll complete in time. I'm hoping to finish Zhul'Thun's texture by Monday the 4th, so I can prepare my presentation for the last couple days.
I've been chipping away at both Karnys (Texturing) and Zhul'Thun (resculpting) for the past week.
For Karnys, a friend/classmate gave me some critiques, so I changed a few colors, the pose, and some material choices. I still need to add some small accents (Small knives in his bandolier, metal accents on his belt), tighten up some existing textures (Metal accents on his boot), and maybe a few other things.
I also have been working on re-sculpting Zhul'Thun - I managed to change his hands from 5-fingers to 3-fingers, simplified some of the details so that there are areas of rest (Legs, chest, arms, back, feet). I still need to add a lot of asymmetry, and clean up some of the branches.
I finished these two pieces this weekend!! I'm really happy with how Leera turned out, but I might have to work with Karnys a little more. I think his pose created some problems, so I'm going to try and rework his pose. I've been working on these two a lot this weekend to have ready for my school's Spring Show deadline. Tomorrow I'll be working on Zhul'Thun's sculpt as my last submission.

This is a blog that I mainly use to record the work I do for AAU, but I'm sure I will be uploading some personal stuff, as well.
