So my first efforts went into getting the major areas sculpted so I could get his silhouette right. I didn't want the surface of Mr. Rock to have that feeling of a giant boulder with small details sprayed on. I really wanted him to have that chunky feel and overlapping non-linear flow. I wanted it to look organic, but in a rocky way, if that makes sense? Different sized rocks, shapes, cracks, etc (Fig.06a - b & Fig.07). Since the biggest chore for the whole project was getting the surface and texture right, I thought I might dive into how that look was achieved and which brushes I used for certain strokes. There's a bunch of ways and techniques to make rocky stuff in ZBrush, so keep in mind that this was just my way and personal choice... at least for now!

I agree with Lr, so bad (with this enormous idea) you didn't keep the composition from your concept drawing (fig. 4). Anyway, you did a great great work ! Congrats !
