I wanted to test the release candidate version for upcoming Blender 2.72, so I thought of doing a little Jordu Schell homage, using his 50's alien head design for a 1-hour sketch. (you can watch the video HERE)<br style="color: #333333; font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: 17px;" />I used Dyntopo for the sculpt, and 3 vertex-color layers for the final render. I really like how the color palettes are now integrated within the tool panels. I used the old palettes plugin, and didn't quite like its layout, or workflow.
Then, I decided to do some retopology, bake the textures, and rig the character, to give something back to my subscribers as the video got +10,000 views. Enjoy!
