Project Description

Everyone's favorite reenactor, Toby, was my solution to the final project in the Digital Tutors course Skill Builder: Sculpting in ZBrush and Maya.    The project was pretty open-ended, asking only the following:

  • Create a character
  • Give him/her/it at least three accessories
  • Utilize Maya and ZBrush when creating the character

As it's prone to do, my mind went to what I know, and having done Revolutionary War Reenacting as a teenager I figured a Revolutionary War soldier, with all his accouterments, would make a good sculpture.   And that’s how Toby was born!   For more information on this project checkout my blog.
