The Making of Rambouillet

with Zack Petroc


Starting from a low resolution box mesh, Zack begins to flesh out the design sculpt of Rambouillet, a character from "Attaboy" - his sculpted novel series. Stressing rhythm, proportion and gesture, Zack works through a variety of options to find which one best accentuates the character's personality. Zack also addresses underlying forms and foundation techniques for developing secondary skin fold details.
