    Default A couple Zbrush 3 samples - Joe Lee

    My name is Joe Lee and I am a senior artist at Edge of Reality. I've owned Zbrush since version 1.23 and boy, has it come a long way to say the least.

    I have to also say the biggest noticeable joy was the ability to move so many polys around with much more fluidity.

    Subtools and layers make it possible to control the detail of your creation like never before. Transpose enables you to not only to pose models but to modify sculpts. The retopology feature is nice to have readily available should the need arise as well.

    Here are a couple of experiments using multiple subtools.

    The Hair study was a test to use subtools of zsphere chains to create locks of hair.The zsphere lends itself particularly well to posing and twisting for such results.

    The Raptor head was a study to try to reach for a woodcarving feel. The MatCap material helps present this test as well with the aid of an imported polished wood sample.

    See the Bird of Prey Tutorial in Here

    There's still so much more for me to devote more time to but I think it's safe to say, there is plenty opportunity to be both

    productive and creative with this release of Zbrush.



    I am grateful to Pixologic for this opportunity.

    I love the girl. Very classic work with nice solution for the hair. The eagle is just mind-blowing! This tutorial will set a new record when released!

    Keep rocking,
    -Kris

    The woman is just a superhero! Real look of beauty and confidence. The eagle...I'm just having to duct tape my jaw from dropping from all this awesome ZB3 work. Thanks!

    Amazing. Is that hair on the eagle (specially the bottom part) separate meshes 'projected' onto the tool or somekind?

    Amazing job on both models. However the detail on that bird is outstanding! I've got goosebumps. How the hell did you do that?!
    What if there were no rhetorical questions?

    What an incredible turn out of artwork from some of the most dedicated and talented artists I have ever seen gathered! The work here just inspires to no end.


    Hey Marsyas- I just have to first say that Mama Ogre of yours still makes me smile even today. Thank you. I think you will really enjoy ZBrush 3.0

    Antropus- What can I say except I can't imagine the beta testing without your contributions. Your work is nothing short of inspirational. I'm beginning to wonder if you and Alex Oliver ever sleep. Sculpt on, Zbrother.

    AgentSmith- I appreciate your compliments. Thank you.

    AngelJ- I'm grateful to hear the images are inspiring. I have to say the new tools allow you to realize new creations unlike anything before.

    Crusoe the Painter- That's great you are using it for miniature sculpting. You're going to love it then.

    DigitalDreamer and SolidSnakexxx- Thank you both.

    Feureau, Plakkie, Gpepper, Jadetiger- Thank you. As Kris hinted above, there is a tutorial of the process for the eagle that is in Pixologic's possession that explains things in more detail than I will here. I will say that there are multiple subtools, use of layers, use of the new projection brush (you are not too far off Feureau), along with a handful of custom feather alphas. You will have a much easier time getting this kind of result than I did first time around as I hope to spare you from my mistakes.

    It won't be much longer guys. Thanks again.

    Yes indeed the detail on the chocolate eagle is stunning.
    Both are superb.
    ......Nobody tries to be lah-di-dah or uppity--There's a cup-o'-tea for all.
