I kick off the project with a quick sculpt session. The mesh then gets a simple rig to pose the character.

It's interesting to watch the techniques you select and hear why you made your choices.
Even more than the techniques, though, I find it valuable to observe your thought process and how it evolves. I think I can learn from your flexibility.
In short, fucking awesome, dude!

You genius can create amazing work even if only a brush is given. However, I understand what pains lie beneath those beautiful talent. It will be helpful if you share overview of how you learned Blender. I’ve been diving into learning blender for 7 months now and can’t get even a bit closer to that stage. 7 months is nothing, I know. May be a few years, huh? Great work. I’ll take some time with these artwork to explore. Thanks for this.

By the way, comments do not work for me in either Firefox Windows or Firefox Linux.

@klikmaker: Could you please share which version of Firefox doesn't work?
P.S: Writing this on Firefox 51.0.1 (64-bit), Ubuntu
P.S2: Now editing this in 52.0.1!

@PabloVazquez: HI Pablo, At work on WIN-10, it's 52.0.1. I'll have to wait until I'm home to tell you about the Linux version. It's Manjaro, so it should be pretty current. But I'll tell you for sure later.
OK, editing now, I'm at home now. It's 52.0 64 bit Firefox. Linux Manjaro XFCE.

@PabloVazquez: Pablo, about my issue posting here from within Firefox: it appears the add on "Grammarly" was causing a conflict. I have removed that add on, and am posting from Firefox right now. :)
