this is a work in progress and i decided to try to modify the horse that came with the program. i do like to do things from scratch but this was an excercise in line work and concept work. its made of highly unstable material but that enables it to cross time and space with ease. im probably going to add crystls on its sholder and such as a variant with matching armor. there will be a mane made out of a nebula like substance bordring lava properties.
suggestions are apreciated and what i can do to improve it

this was just a project when i had no real knoledge of zbrush, i have a better understanding of it now thanks to everyone on the fourm, it was the pixologic horse[thanks whoever made that]. that is the base for this only modified. sure i may have mucked it up, but more importantly at this stage is the material that i came up with, its funny part of it was on accident, i have a series of materials based off this and the lines/engravings were done on a laptop touchpad the wings have more detail and i wanted to get the jist of one of the materials, this was done in z2.i will work on this more i have to build up form in the wings, its rough and i also am getting prepared for z3. it is a zsphere mesh structure[inserts]. i still have to add the mane and tail, as well as the ethereal qualitys to the wings among other things. i want to add a character to it with a saddle to boot. please offfer suggestions for improvment and im not sure how ill provide the materials perhaps in a zip, please as a newb idreally apreciate feedback, its important that something be learned from this so in the future i can do a better job. i may end up when i have enough skill to make a horse of my own. i will wait to post others as per the fourm policy. [Edit, i do intend to

zbrush is king
I'd like to see more
Yari- Its good to see you revisiting a interesting idea now that you have a bit more knowledge of ZB2. Though your still new and learning a lot like myself, its good to see you not abandoning your idea and looking to improve upon it over time. Nothing wrong with using anothers base mesh as your giving credit for that.. I'm sure now you prolly could experiment on the structure now more so and make it more your own. It sounds like you used it as a study for your material and engraved detailing you applied. Once ZB3 and the lazy mouse feature comes out it would prolly help you greatly to emblish and achieve more of what you want out of this piece.
When I think of the words cosmic and ethereal that you've used in relation toward your image or material maybe you could work toward experimenting with more of a translucent qualities to help give more of a celestial aspects to it? Would like to see more images and more of your thoughts before I can give any more definitive feedback. This forum has a ton of talented artists.. I hope more will be willing to add more insight as well to your project. Keep working hard will check back in for your updates.
shuould i give more examples of the materials, since this is a wip i figure that it would be good to showcase the materals on a complex object. i have a silver and gold too + a black one too, but with these you can have almost any color combination it just takes a little tweaking.
