    Default ZBrush 4R2 Beta Testing By: Rudy Massar

    The "Night Watch" is a made up snoring security guard of the ***8220;Rijksmuseum***8221; in Amsterdam. The name of this piece refers to the famous Night Watch painting of Rembrandt you find in this museum. The image is inspired by works of Norman Rockwell and Franz Xaver Messerschmidt.

    I used GoZ a lot to bring pieces from Maya to ZBrush. The patterns were created using NoiseMaker with custom tileable textures. Designing MatCaps was new to me as well as modifying materials, so I spent quite some time working with LightCaps and materials. This was great fun, fast and really powerful. My goal was to create an image that has a typical global illumination (sun and sky) feel to it, including the low sampling noise you quite often see. I also included a version that uses the standard material and a default light set-up. It***8217;s just one piece for this beta but I hope you like it.

    Wow, thank you all for the compliments, I am truly flattered.

    : In my case I used the UV option. You can also choose 2D or 3D, but in my case that would cause a distortion in some directions. In the lower left corner of the NoiseMaker preview window there's a dot you can click which allow you to use your custom made (tileable)texture.

    i was honored to work with you on this beta. This image speak for your talent. Its an amazing and truly breath taking piece. The influences of Rockwell are very present, and for you to capture a master figure painter's life in a sculpture like that, its truly something outstanding. well done my friend. I look forward to future betas with you

    Thumbs up

    Very Nice style .. Noise maker and lightcaps look amazing... I have to say the Character reminds me a bit of Tom Waits... Especially how that man can exaggerate his face.
