Breaking Bad- Walter White

Hey everyone, i havent post anything for a while mainly because my full time job as a character artist at Sony San Diego and i am still doing some freelance works at the same time, but i have been doing this sculpting using only my freetime (which is around 5 hours per week) for a while now, i have to say...... he is not easy to sculpt at all, he has got a pretty unique head skull shape, and really deep winkles on this forehead and cheeks, and it was really hard to find refs for his side view.

Anyway, i think because this TV show is so popular, it makes it really easy for people to tell who you are sculpting,(basically a bold guy with glasses and beard), the challenging part for me is to capture his likeness with out his beard and glasses, so i spent a lot of time studying his facial anatomy and expressions. Here is what i got so far. Basically finish the head, will detail his lab suit and mask soon....

Especially thank to my supervisor at Sony-Rafael Grassetti for the best critiques!

First week YETI- 90 mins sculpting




I am currently taking a creature sculpting class with Bryan Wyina, so i will post what i do each week here, i am really excited to learn creature design from him.
So this week's assignment is 4 speed sculpting of YETI,this is my first take of it!!
We shouldnt spend more then 1 hour on each speed sculpting, but this one took me around 1 and half hour, it was really hard to just stop at one hour, i will try harder for the next one!
