Reconstructing Chirostenotes 03

More progress on this sculpture.  I blocked in the forms of the feathers and worked on developing the hands a bit more.  I was able to come up with a technique for sculpting the feather texture along the surface of the body, I'll have to wait until I'm able to up res the sculpt before I can really see the effects.  I'm really exited about finally purchasing my own copy of zbrush up until now I've had to rely on the computers at my school in order to work which is inconvenient at times.

Reconstructing Chirostenotes 02

Progress update on my sculpt of Chirostenotes.  Constructed the armature out of zspheres using my ortho in the background as reference.  I then began massing in the muscles by using insert mesh brushes mostly spheres and tubes.  This is the first time I've tried out this process so it's a little slow going but so far I'm liking the approach.
