With this as good reference material i decided to have ago myself and see what i could come up with. It had been a while since i had last used Z-Brush i had not used it since i was on the FD course here at St.Helens college. After a couple of hours getting to grips with it again i had produced the panels but i wasn't happy with how things had turned out.
Looking at what i had produced the edges and strap areas where not coming out smooth they was coming out very rough and didn't look natural and at the same time i was struggling to get the desired effect like the Gears of War characters.
Ive decided to call it a day at this point as i have found this very time consuming and and very exhausting, I will have another go at it tomorrow.
