    Hello everyone,

    Been a long time since my first post on here... I'm going to start posting more work. I've really been enjoying ZBrush and more so lately as I've been doing more personal concept stuff. I'm sculpting in ZBrush and doing the color, hair, saliva and environments in PhotoChop. Most of the stuff is done around a day or so.

    Top row stuff in my opinion!

    How much painting in it?
    I love the hanging skulls, are they ztools or completely painted?

    Beautiful in every way - original, great sculpt, awesome render, and sweet composition.

    Top row now!

    Thanks everyone for the kind words. The model is shown in a matcap that I sculpt in, plus a slight rim light added to clearly define the silhouette. Would a darker matcap with a balance value range be better?

    stefanobernardi,

    The ZBrush model I posted was the only 3D stuff. I did make some base meshes for the teeth in Maya, which were inspired a bit by a Port Jackson Shark's teeth, but my creature's teeth are not as cool as the reference. Everything else was painted in Photoshop. I looked at some reference of bird and cat skulls to get a general feel, then added the teeth as I felt it should be. Hair and environment was painted as well. The lighting of a specific matcap inspired the environment, so I came up with a lighting composition that suggested bottom lighting, and I made a composite of some rim lighting to define the form. I wanted to go to town on the lava more, but I had to finish in a time line I could reproduce on a real production.

    Some close ups of the head and arm:

    This is the coolest creature I've seen in a long time. The more you look at it the more trippy it becomes. Great work man.

    Really great creature man, i especially love the hands ! The anatomy looks really solid and it looks really great without a debauchery of details. Nice !
