Some close ups.
Looking Great VoodooDad......I like the addition of the orange flowering plant on the left side in the last rendered post on the previous page in here..nice additions..
Also like your idea for doing other scenes from the story...Great way to explore the possibilities of FiberMesh and some of the other new features in ZBRUSH, and enjoy the journy at the same time...Like killing two birds with one stone so to speak..
Keep Inspired and Inspiring VoodooDad..
Thanks Glenn! Fibermesh is so much fun to explore it's unbelievable! You're really pouring out some inspiration now, especially with the last lake scene. I never would have thought of doing it the way you described in your thread. I guess at this point it's all about learning to use some of the older tools and shapes in different ways.
I'm throwing together some tools for use in future scenes while I'm between projects. This is a pedestal I'm working on right now.
More modeling and some simple characters for a sense of scale.
Gardening with fibermesh is so much easier than the real thing!
voodoodad - your progress is definitely showing man, keep up the great work! Again, look back to your original post, and look at you now.
I assume the majority of this is shadowbox.
May I ask, how did you do the arched roof pieces? Plane3d?
Corey! Long time, no see man! Glad to have you back! Yeah, I still go back to those original posts every once in a while just to reassure myself that I am making progress lol.
Ok about this sculpt... Nope, haven't touched shadowbox for this one. The holes in the roof pieces were done with cube inserts on a thick plane. I then used gravity on the y axis to shape them. Gravity works like a dream when you need a kind of bowed out surface like that.
Hope you're planning on post some work soon! Gary
Another update. Trying to decide how best to get some water flowing under the bridge.

At this point I've got my lighting set up and all but one of the pieces I need in place. Now I'm trying to figure out a way to simulate slow flowing water that looks halfway decent and a good angle to show as much of this as I can in a still.

Back to Bag End for a moment to correct some lighting issues. Might go in and fiddle with it a little more later.
Excellent.. VoodooDad.....Really capturing that Magical look of the kingdom and the feeling of the story......Thanks for sharing how you did those arched ceiling pieces for the bridge also...I was trying to figure that one out myself..
Really enjoying this learning adventure you have going on in here...A Great one for sure..
Hey buddy, sorry I have not responded for some time. They are offering alot of over time at my day job, and well, have to take advantage of it (cause it comes and goes). Anywho, real quick... it's really amazing how much work you have put into this last project. I love all the little details. Very strong imagination you have going here. Great use again of the new FIBER MESH. Too cool to see ZBrush used as a 'world' builder as you are doing here. Heck, they (Pixologic) keeps it up and, well, there will be no need to use ANY OTHER PACKAGE to do it all with except ZBrush! OK, gotta run (off to do more over time). Will holla at ya via email. Best.
