Many of you will remember our interview with Olivier Thill (Luxo) about "Henk" -- A graphic novel being created with ZBrush and some clever use of its materials system. That interview led to some very interesting things! Because of it, Olivier was recruited by Edition Soleil to apply his techniques in the creation of a twelve-volume comic series. The first book has now been released and we were anxious to spend time catching up with Olivier to get the inside track on this very unique approach to ZBrush.
The story blends Greek mythology with futuristic sci-fi. It's only appropriate that the art should blend 2D illustration with 3D!
Some Images From the Interview:
Thank you to Luxo for taking the time to speak with us. We would also like to thank Edition Soleiol for the publication of the interview's images and comics panels, and to Looky for the publication of some of his sketches. Share your comments in this thread!
