View Full Version : Mockup wip
01-12-05, 07:35 AM
Just some z fun with mocking up a book cover. The head was made in z. The "undead" title was a black and white text I made in psp and imported it to z as an alpha. I used the make 3d to convert it into a model and then used a z texture inverted (the little sky and mountain one) the rest of the text was added after rendering and exporting the image back into psp while I composited the head model with the 3d text and then merged the layers in psp and added the 2d text...was kinda fun and looked kinda kewl, so I thought I would share. I will probably do some other versions on this thread as time permits. Thnx for looking.
Always for hire
Any questions or comments are gladly welcomed.

...have 4 eyes! 2 yellow and 2 orange ;)
Weird indeed ! :)

I Like it! Yeah, work more on the eye , usually, zombie have classic human eye, but they look blind, nearly to full white.
Worke a bit more on the skin : you could make it moreblue/yellow/gree, with spots, and put under eye a bit darker...
Good work, keep it up!!

01-15-05, 09:04 PM
The second pass through photoshop for the undead man really hit the spot. The scales on that creature are very well done. Nice materials mang.

nice fish!!Musky or Pike?!!!BAS! I caught a smaller bass last week and the only other fish caught that day on the wall was by a man fishing to the left of us..and yes it was a catfish...(my favorite fish btw) the cat went about 30 pounds. My friend David and I had to assist the guy in landing his catch...here is his pic.
Thxn for all the response on this thread yall.
01-16-05, 09:19 AM
these are beings you brutalize or kill, just for fun, right?
01-16-05, 09:47 AM
well for me, Smell...hmmm when I was a boy growing up I would feed my family alot of the times, so then it was sporting for food....now that I am 40 and have my own family I fish for relaxation ....it's cheaper than taking Paxil....the man in the pic with the catfish took it home to feed his family....My family however does not like fresh fish...so I feed other families if the catch is good,though I will unfortunately say the last striped bass I caught died while on the stringer and we did not bring ice to preserve the catch. So I fed the fish to about a dozen homeless cats that are living at the area I caught this at. Normally my catches are small during the winter and I take a pic of me and the fish and then release my catch directly back to the water. I hate waste, but it does occur .....but then again those poor little cats were hungry too...so I guess this time I just added to the food chain a helping hand.
01-16-05, 09:50 AM
No kill! My pike is still swimming in the river. It is the most nice fish we have here in Holland and I respect it.
01-16-05, 01:40 PM
Are albino cats pretty common by you Ron?
never saw one before...specially not one that big.:D
01-16-05, 03:04 PM
Aminuts, I have caught several at this particular place....(Cumberland City Steam Plant TN.) This cat was a blue cat. I the blood in his eyes made him appear a bit albino...There is another local cat called the White cat...not albine but looks similiar to this blue cat....The albinos are truly like a bunny rabbit...white and pink...if I get another one of those I will post it.....but they are all good eating...though I prefer pansized fish for tablefare. (Easier to clean and young and tastier and more plentiful). In my 1000th post I posted a pic of a local man who sat the world record a mile or so from where I caught this. We kept that world record locally for several years until this last summer I believe and a man in Texas broke it. But that pic like I said is on my 1000th post page...In this thread that striped bass was my largest bass ever taken and my largest overall fish was a very very large fresh water drum,(and normally I would not mention catching large drum but...she was huge). That pic is on the 1000 posts thread for me. I will look for the link and post it here just in case you are interested...
thnx for the interest,
01-16-05, 03:57 PM
hahaha cool! hard to imagine someone could beat a 112lb record fish! yikes!!
like the one of you firing that weapon too.
01-16-05, 11:03 PM
I dont even remember the new record...I was happy to see a larger one caught but losing the world record locally hurt....:o :o :o
This is my head of the night....a progression shot .Very subtle details added in each shot....Nothing earth shattering but lots of fun..thnx for looking...If zbrush does nothing else for me, it keeps me calm and relaxed.
01-17-05, 06:50 AM
Paxil...hmmm now I see where the inspiration for the gore is coming ;)
Have you ever catched a zombie fish? :lol: :lol:
PD: Good images showing the progress:tu:
01-17-05, 04:00 PM
Ofcourse he catched on of this kind of fish!!!
01-17-05, 04:58 PM
LOL Bas!!!!! I would like to catch that fish...looks meaner than hell for sure....thanks for the smile and an excellant alteration.....:tu: :tu: :tu: :cool: :tu: :tu: :tu:
01-17-05, 08:17 PM
"They were shooting at me, but at least I had a semi-soft landing".........I guess that could happen here in the south during duck hunting season ;) Bas gave me the idea to use one of my existing fishing backgrounds with my current zbrush model. Composited in psp, foreground water added with the flamingpear.com flood effect....The wings and the body were new models I have played with on and off today in between naps....Everything is zif based....His feet were just too ugly and the hands give him questionable attitude .....just an old bald headed warrior angel I guess...and I assume angels dont reproduce due to the fact they would be supernatural beings and created rather than hatched...or some thinking along those lines...no zombies and no blood.............yet.. ;) I think the skin material was Sokar's..I love that one...no painting done on the model. Render adjustments and shadow touchup in postwork in psp.
Always for hire...and cheap too...:D :D :D :D
01-18-05, 12:10 AM
hahaha Bas you are definitely a welcome addition to ZBC, I like your sense of humor!
hahaha Ron it's a good thing that dude has lots of muscles cuz those wings...they look HEAVY!!:D
Ha ha ha :lol: :lol:
Be careful if you eat this.:tu: :tu:
01-18-05, 04:35 PM
This winged one I like to catch on my new fly I made. Flyfishing with a big black zombiefly.....
01-18-05, 05:18 PM
that is one helluva lure..LOL..the scary thing is that I have some stuff that resembles that closely minus the fangs.... ;) Love your sense of humor for sure Bas....you fit right in with the rest of us Znutz.
01-18-05, 11:05 PM
hahahaa Bas that fly would go nicely with the fish in the nuke plants pond out here!
01-19-05, 04:08 PM
Hee Ron, where are the new zombies? I need one because I drunk too much an my blood is thin! Please send a nice vampire! Or are you fishing? Tell me more about the fishes you catch!
01-19-05, 05:21 PM
thnx for another smile Bas and motivation for my daily...rather our daily dose of blood and carnage....45 minutes from raw zif stage to final paintup....not my best but I hope it satiates the Zghouls that go bump (brush) in the night:lol: :lol: :lol: pardon the pun....I have also include the zif modeling zscript for this head modeling session...thnx guys.
Always for hire..and always cheap
01-19-05, 10:06 PM
A little chaulk type test with z2's 2d tools....fill layer will black under the Layers pallette and simple brush with white and black paints....no zadd...RGB only with a level between 2-15ish.... then the second one is the same thing cept I colored it roughly ....light rgb settings....no a very good sketch but I was working fast to capture the essence of the technique trial....exported and composited the two in psp...Southern's pencil case script allows for the same/better ability to use Zbrush as a sketch pad for this type work. The white on black was my original intent...I know this technique has a name....had seen some work in it in some old art books I have around here somewhere...anyways...have a good one...
a cyclops....rough but fun to do....like a kids playin with crayons....lol
i like that style ron, reminds me of almost an x-ray or something :):D
01-21-05, 12:17 AM
Moved onto another head ....sketched all afternoon while company was visiting....got this idea from one of the sketches.....may go further with this one....anyways... 3d sphere modeled ...a layer for the head and a layer for the eyes and teeth...
01-21-05, 09:03 AM
Waaauw!!! This one is a real creep! I like it Ron!!
Man. This one freaked me out from just the thumbnail. Truly disturbing, evocative work.
OMG, I love the Undead pic at the beginning of this thread. very well done, esp the eyes. I also really like the "chalk drawings" on page 2 (I think?). Since I have limited browsing ability right now, I am picking out a very few threads to view. Glad I chose this one...Keep it up, Ron.
