Kevin Keele sculpt

I took about 2.5 hours yesterday to sculpt this really fun design by Kevin Keele.  A ton of fun to work with all the shapes in his design.  Such a talented artist.  It's not really finished, and I would approach the hair differently next time, but it was fun to take it this far.  A little of the process is shown in the pics below.

Thanks for the kind words! I really enjoy your design sensibilities. It was a lot of fun to work with him. Cheers!

As a relatively recent starter in character design I am trying to establish a good workflow, when I look around it seems to me that the norm in character design is starting from imagination/reference to 2d sketch, then from sketch to 3d sculpt...

Since both sketching and sculpting are quite involved as disciplines usually the two steps above are carried out by different people as is the example here.

Very few people (if any) jump straight into "3d sketching" and even you you find often the quality is not up to par.

Great work both of you guys.
