Hi fellow zbrushers!
This thread is collection of Dragon bust 3d sketches I did over the course of February using Zbrush.
55 designs in less then 28 days.
Most of them are modeled from scratch or recycled from the previous zsphere base(teeth,tongue,eye were also mostly recycled).
On average, it took about 2 hours give or take to model each dragon.
During this design "marathon" I have recorded most of the modeling sessions(except couple of models I had my zbrush app crash in the middle of session) that is something I plan to upload and link to this thread once I get it up to my website.
This was a great challenge for me and it turned out quite beneficial.
I ended up with some sharper skills, became faster in conceiving something, got some cool ideas for dragon related images that I plan to flesh out in coming weeks/months and a nice collection of 3d sketches..so I highly recommend something like this to all of you, especially if you have some spare time, to set a challenge for yourself and get it done in given time.
I'l keep adding some wips and sketches to this thread as I continue my work related to dragon stuff.
attached is part of alphas(zipped package) I've created specifically for this "marathon", feel free to use it in your own work. Same package can be found at PIXOLOGIC ALPHA LIBRARY
