    Woah thats awesome! I really like how you showed your progress, I didn't even know you could create such dynamic and realistic environments within Zbrush, Next project has been ignited in my mind!

    Senka: Thanks... yep, height maps from any terrain software will work. This nice thing about the DEMs from the USGS is that they are actually real locations!

    Semmeh: Indeed.. there are actually a lot of environment artists who use Zbrush for non-character related work, it's just that ZBC tends to get a lot more character based work posted. Granted, now that fibermesh allows for plants/trees/etc, we're probably going to start seeing a lot more environment work. Hope so!

    Alex, you're crazy man. It's fantastic. You showed to us on The Union. I've downloaded ZBRUSH here to study by myself to do something, or try to do. So, it's difficult 'cause I don't know ZBRUSH interface buttons, functions and everything. I know how to draw so I can sculpt something. I hope study at AXIS but I think that my portfolio wont be accepted because I have a comic book art style. So, if you have time, take a look http://douglasfranchindg.blogspot.com/.
    The works: Cavaleiro das Trevas ( Dark Knight ), Dead or Alive, Homo-pinnipedia and Anthropossauros were choosen by SAGA and I won The Union tickets for free.


    When you talked about your life history I remember about me. It's the same thing, a kid that likes to be alone at bedroom drawing creatures, superheroes and another nerd stuff. The Union was amazing. Thanks!

    Default Making of Gathering - free video lecture

    dg artist: Thanks! Glad you enjoyed the event. Indeed, I think that the majority of artists are hermits... !

    So speaking of the Union, I decided to record a lecture based on the presentation that I gave in Brazil earlier this month.
    Duration is about 2.5hrs and it is free, available through the Gnomon Workshop.
    Hope it is useful!

    great tutorial! Just wondering if you care to share those dem height map files, currently dem files now at USGS are scans of geographical data consisting of the entire landscape instead of small height maps more concentrated on detail.
