    Post Tutorial: 'Rusted Golden Idol' with a drop shadow...

    Hi
    This ZScript tutorial demonstrates the following items...
    Symmetrical object.
    Rusted/Corroded surface.
    Drop shadow.
    Gradient background.

    The image below is generated by the ZScript…


    This procedure is similar to the one used in creating the Carriage And Horse image.

    The ZScript can be downloaded by clicking in here.
    After extracting the included files, place these files within your ZScript folder and open the RustedGoldenIdol.txt zscript from within ZBrush.

    I hope that you’ll find this tutorial helpful
    If you try this tutorial, please post your images and/or findings,

    Hi Pix,

    Never occured to me to do a drop shadow within ZB because I hadn't thought out the stencil/mask combo - very illuminating

    It's been said many times but I must repeat - never have I seen such an excellent learning process from within a program as you have provided with scripting. It's power cannot be denied - good work!

    Comparing my talent to yours is a chasm that will never be crossed, the best example as to why is you NEVER use the key stroke combination that I use more then any other = CTRL/Z

    Thanks

    jd

    another wonderful and inspiring script - thank you, Pixolator!

    i think this one adds up to at least 7 techniques (and points to 2 more) i’ve never thought of before (in a lil more than a year since the first demoversion for the mac was ready for download). absolutely excellent!

    kudos

    Another classic Pixolator script. I just ran it. The solution to doing the drop shadow was an elegant one, I didn't think of doing it that way.

    I'll have to think of some rusty objects to create now. Maybe in conjunction with the terrain tutorial, maybe I can do a "rusty terrain".

    I thought the option to run the script either with or without notes was a nice touch.

    I was just thinking that it might be useful (for the benefit of the multi-marker tool) if when duplicating and flipping layers if you could have the option of duplicating and flipping markers as well to do complex symmetrical objects using multi-markers.
    The direction of companion mind should cooperate with rescue at lighting of a red lamp,or a buzzer. Please give me connection from a nearly extraordinary telephone.

    Thanks for a great little tutorial, pix!
    I especially liked the drop-shadow method you showed.

    Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, Pixolator! What a wonderful, informative tutorial! That drop shadow move was incredible. And what a way to make rust without a photo texture.

    I'm blown away again.

    Fantastic tutorial!
    I'm going to learn all kinds of things from rewatching this thing!

    Edit:
    Yay! I've rewatched it, and had some time to experiment with it, and came up with The upside down dude:

    Nothing much, but a good learning experience.

    Cool

    I really appreciate the layer duplicate, then flip method, combined with merge layers, to get that symmetry effect SO much quicker that redrawing or mirroring.

    Thanks again, Pixolator!

    Thanks for the great tutorial. It contained parts of the program that I haven't gotten to play with and learn yet. You made the modeling and materials look so simple.

    Talking

    This tutorial really inspired me to experiment with materials. Here are some of my experiments:

    Pic ID 6: Crusty Molten Ball



    Pic ID 7: Verdigris Idol



    I like verdigris and rust.

Any schoolboy with a little aptitude might very well draw better than I perhaps; but what he most often lacks is the tough yearning for realization, the teeth-grinding obstinacy and saying: even though I know I'm not capable of it, I'm still going to do it." -- M.C. Escher, in a letter to his son Arthur, 12 February 1955
