apocalypse progress

Ploughing ahead with my apocalypse sculpt in ZBrush. Studying as I go, and already filling in some blanks in my anatomy knowledge. Haven't worked out how I'm going to pose him up yet, as in the gesture not the technique. He's unfolding nicely though so really looking forward to the final statuesque feel when it starts to happen.

Apocalypse sculpt - first stage

Recently I've been pushing myself in lots of ways with my artwork and having a quiet period work wise has made me pay closer attention to some of the blanks in my portfolio. I guess the question I asked myself is 'what is missing'? Not one really for fan art, I rarely visit these kinds of characters but when work throws them my way I'm over the moon and secretly wish I could have chosen a better character. I decided to brief myself on this one, and seeing as the adaptation of Apocalypse in the new x-men movie is utterly awful I decided to see what I could come up with. This is the first pass, about a days work but plenty more to do. This is going to be a dynamically posed statue and I think the key direction is "fuckin Bad Ass" More progress to come as I go. Enjoying this one so much..
