First steps into sculpting

Just finished this shield model done with Mudbox, a new tool to me.  The first two images are renders made in Mudbox.  The third is a lowpoly mesh (300 triangles) in the Unreal 3 engine. The model has a diffuse, specular, parallax and normal map on it. It took me just under 4 days to make, which included learning Mudbox. Sculpting is good fun though, I’m looking forward to do more of it in the future!

    I think it would’ve been like a head crab… but just because it looks like a head with tiny crablegs. Totally unlike the ones in halflife ofcourse :P
