Ok after finally getting to grips with ZB 3, I am partly through my project to create an old Anglo-Saxon Helmet.
My task is to create a realistic looking helm based on pictures and replica helmets used by old Anglo-Saxon warriors. I am not aiming to copy proportions or style exactly, but to simply create a helmet based on the
Sutton Hoo stlyle Anglo-Saxon Helmet.
For a reference image, please have a look at this
A few things I would like to mention:
I could not have even dreamt about creating a 3D model like this one if ZB 3 wasn't around. ZB 3 is simply in a league of its own. I must admit that I was frustrated with ZB3 at first, but that was purely down to my lack of knowledge and also the odd ZB bug, of which I sure will be fixed soon.
Everything you see was created using ZBrush.
The model currently consists of 13.5 Million polygons, all of which are displayed smoothly on my PC (6300 3ghz, 2Gig Ram, 8800GTX). I have not yet needed to use the HD Sculpting.
The image is far from finished, although I am so far pleased with the current form.
Comments welcome, but please be kind as this is still WIP.
The following image shows some of the detail on the face plate.
