    That's a question I get a lot. I don't really know I guess I'm very nitpicky lol. My main brush is the flatten brush with 100 intensity. I also use flatten with ALT, I think thats's what gives me the most clean stuff, cuz it fills the cavities first like a clay behavior. I also just got used to my detailing maybe, I always clean my details with flatten, smooth and planar brushes.


    Jazzon3D:

    Thanks man, for the overlapping techniques, O'm assuming you're talking about the "hell creep", the organics tendons. I used basic alphas shapes made in photoshop to layout the tile, then Its a mix of damn standard, with zsub zadd, to have a "folding effect", usually the sides of the tendons use zadd so the edges pop out with bevels, just try to draw a couple brush stroke with zsub zadd, zsub zadd next to each other and smooth the top and end, you'll see what I mean hopefully.

    Here's some more personal sculpt I did for a personal project, I have no idea IF i'll ever finish it, I actually lost some files when I format.

    What's the gray material that you use?

    Hey,

    Thanks for the reply. Definitely given me something to think about.
    I have another question If I may....
    When creating environment pieces such as the modular architecture or props that need to be a specific size / proportions, do you first create a base mesh in your 3D app and use that as reference / base sculpt mesh? or do you create the sculpt in zbrush first and worry about the size later?
    With Zbrush having no 'real world' unit system this is something I've always been unsure about.
    I generally import a very basic size reference model and then create as much geo as possible in Zbrush. Just wondered if there was a better way that I was missing.

    thanks again for taking the time to reply.

    cheers

    Mindblowing stuff, some of the best Sculpts out there!

    I love the presentation, could you maybe go a bit into detail about how you render your sculpts in zBrush (well, is it zBrush? do I see a cavity map assigned?)?

    Also, thanks a lot for the brushes - Orb's Crack is one of the few basic brushes I need day to day!

    Keep it up and keep posting!

    Default Circular details?

    Hi Orb,

    Thanks for your brushes and for sharing your artwork!

    Quick question: how do you sculpt the circular grooves on your reliefs? I always find it hard to do precise shapes (circles, straight lines, etc.) in ZBrush. Of course, it could be poly modeling the grooves instead of sculpting I guess.

    Thanks!

    sorry late replies!

    @rob_beddall:
    yes, I try to match a real life scale, because it impacts a lot the ambient occlusion bake, if your mesh is super small you'll get different AO then if it's huge, so I try to be relatively correct, at least when I bake.

    @avagoyamug:
    It's pretty simple, I have 2 custom lights, one top left, one rim light with 0 ambient, and I make two bpr renders and composite them in photoshop. The matcap is a custom one that I was planning to share with a video on the future, it already has cavity and highlights settings.

    @epach:
    Not sure to understand, you mean the runes? if that's the runes, I use a very useful way, and actually very easy, I use photoshop to make the shape I want, and then inner glow effect, with chiseled mode and 100% opacity, then you can basically control your bevel in photoshop, all you have to do is drop that alpha on the model and mask>polish to clean it a bit. Again I'm planning to actually demonstrate that tip on a video, I actually use this a ton.

    Niiice, very nice looking brushes
    Can you share your alphas and screenshots of brush parameters with us? I want to emulate you brushes in blender 3d

    And metal, I love how it looks, can you share your albedos? Please

    Hello guys,
    I wanted to share a skin that came out recently on heroes of the storm, something I had a ton of fun working on. For both reasons: I was in love with the idea/concept (from luke mancini "mr Jack") and also because it was my very first skin in the game (I'm an environment artist mostly, I do some minions but this was my first playable character). I hope you like , it's a mix of Anubarak and a lurker (zerg unit in starcraft)










    Thanks a lot!

    Hey _Orb,

    Thanks for clearing that up for me. I'd love to see a tutorial in the future about your workflow with PS and ZB!

    And sorry for the super late reply. I guess I missed the notification last time...

    Keep up the awesome work!
