Salamander Sculpt

After many years I’ve finally bit the bullet and decided to learn ZBrush in earnest. This is the first of my sculpting endeavours…

Blocking out the main features. I’m not entirely sure on the nostrils at the moment, which is why they’re rather faint.

I’m referring to it as a salamander at the moment, but so far I’ve primarily been working without reference, so it’s kind of morphed into a hippo-lizard hybrid.

Head of a hippo, body of a lizard. Let’s say I was originally aiming for a creature which was more gelatinous than well-formed. 😉
