Thanks guys, you are welcome! I hope it helps
Polaris: Magnetos daughter 3D print
just would like to share with you the first images from the 3D print from Polaris, which was toprow here at Zbrushcentral.
Thanks for all the support, more will be come!!!
Finally I can share my last work for 3D print.
"THE DEATH OF WOLVERINE"
It was a blast working on this project and probably one of the most iconic heroes from all times. My intention was to give the Rage feeling, after all thats what wolverine is....an animal!!! LOL
I hope you like it. Comes with 3 head kits as a bonus
I will post making of images during the next days as always
You can see them in HD in my Artstation: https://www.artstation.com/artist/mrnunez
And some Zbrush renders, so you can see all the detail sculpted
For the heads I used the displacement maps from Texturing XYZ
Would like to share one project I started on January, but took me a long while as I was still trying to improve my sculpting skills in zbrush and shading techniques in 3DsMax.
The idea is to recreate Mahatma Gandhi digitally, I hope you guys like it!

I want to share my Zbrush pipeline to create busts. I call it the "The method of the Spheres"
1.Start with a Sphere and find the head volume and shape
2. With other spheres append Nosea, Ears and Eyeballs
Pretty much already from this stage you should be able to see the character
3. Dyamesh it and remove gaps. Fix the volume and start with the anatomy work.
4. After it is where I spend most of the time. Likeness is very tricky and sometimes it can take some time to get it right.
5. For the high frequency details I used the displacement maps from TexturingXYZ. Very handy for the face
6. Remain body details are done with standard alphas
I always make sure to work in layers so later on I can intensify any of the details in order to get a better displacement map. Check out the image below:
Some people were asking about the displacement map workflow.
- Load them as Alpha > Invert in Vertical as Zbrush flip them during export
- Load the alpha in the displacement
Adjust the value, most of the time low values around 0,3 do the job
- Create a layer and bake the information from each Channel into separated layers (Primary, Secondary, Tertiary)
- Adjust each layer until it looks right
- Create any new layer for imperfections, wrinkles and extra porosity details
Once you are finish, in order to bake the displacement map I use Multi map exporter inside of Zbrush. Make sure you turn OFF EXR and the scale is set to 1. With the displacement map baked, in 3DsMax I add a VrayDisplacementMod on the lv1 OBJ imported from Zbrush. An amount of 1cm should do the job, though depending on the case I like playing with the SHIFT value too.
HOW TO RETAIN DIVISION LEVELS AFTER PANEL LOOPS
would like to share with you one trick I found out during the process of my last character. More specifically about level divisions in a garment exported from Marvelous Designer.All of us knows the basic pipeline about using Zremesher and re-project the details into the new mesh. But in some cases you are requested to have thickness on the cloth. Well, to be able to do this you can use Panel Loops but immediately you will loose all your subdivision levels.
I asked myself how to reconstruct the previous subdivision levels after the panel loop process. The answer is mathematics LOL.
All is a simple to multiply your previous division levels number by 4, and apply the resulting number as the Loops on the Panel Loop operation.
i.e: I have a cloth that I subdivided 3 times in order to project all the details:
- I delete the division history in order to apply Panel Loops, but set "12" as the loops should be generated during the process (3 x 4= 12)
- After that just hit "Reconstruct Subdiv" button, and you will be able to get down on the division level to the fist one.
Now on division level 1 is easy to pose it, create UVs, etc..
This is some great stuff, especially like the Scarlet Witch
Just wonderful! His is expression is brilliantly done!
great job on the face, it's nice that you went for an expression too
