In class demo, Whip Spider.

As with the Golden Turtle Ant study all surface details created without alphas (all the really large shell bumps were done by hand with an inverted Damien Standard brush), though on this one i did start to use one alpha in class to create some slightly irregular surfaces on the shell area but then undid most of it because it didn't look very natural then went back and sculpted it by hand to try to adhere to the restrictions on the early assignments i am giving out.
Quick Keyshot test of this guy. :)
Warmup for class, Golden Turtle Ant study.

No Alphas for surface details. Want the students to not use alphas for surface detail/texture on early assignments so they really understand the forms and surfaces they are sculpting.
