    Default Erick Sosa collectible sculptor, new to ZB ( Gallery)

    Hi all,
    My name is Erick Sosa, I am a 35 year old professional sculptor. I have been sculpting since my wee years.
    I started sculpting professionally at the age of 17 at Mattel toys, and ever since I have been doing toys, and lately ( past 7 years) statues for the collectibles industry.
    I have worked for most of the big players in the industry, and love what I do. I have been sculpting traditionally for 18 years, and while I love it, the industry seems to be leaning more towards digital, so I decided to learn it! SO here I am.

    I recently started playing with Zbrush, and took Ryan Kingslien's online class, needless to say that helped me take off on my ZB journey.

    I am still a complete neophyte, and have teamed up with Alex Pereira a seasoned CG animator, and friend.

    Together we have created quite a few statues for the Marvel Universe and other properties.
    I have recently started taking some online classes with David Richardson a very cool guy and a CG genius, and hopefully soon i will be able to create my models without worrying so much about my limitations.
    I hope you will enjoy the images, they span from my very first zsketch to older stuff.

    Hi Eric! I discovered you work years ago on the sculptor corner website and i just see that this website no longer exist...
    If i well remember you sculpted a really cool ryu, and a lot of other great models.
    i'm think it's really a great news that you join the zbrush community and i can't wait to see your next jobs.
    Awesome models are coming here for sure!

    Thank you Julien!
    I am glad you like my humble works. As my images seems to be too large to be viewed here, I am attaching a link to my online portfolio both CG and traditional stuff.

    Thank you all.
    Here's the newer stuff I've been doing
    Superman, represents 10 hours of work, ( I am very slow, and I am still learning compared to you guys).
    He is also my latest ZB model, and not done yet.

    Thnk you ,
    -Erick

    Very cool sculpts and prints. If you have time, could you explain how you prepare the model with the male and female pieces for print? Is that something you do in ZBrush or Maya/Max after the sculpt is complete? Thanks.
