I started this sketch out of a sphere using photo reference. I found it helpful to use inflate brush to block in the hands and legs, and i found that zremesher was helful in the early stages to be able to build up forms with the clay build up brush. Hope these sketches i made are helpful.
here i'm beginning to use damian standard brush together with claybuildup to begin blocking in muscles. Using a photo reference that shows muscles clearly is helpful to begin to block in the forms.In total this sketch took about 1 hour.
