Is there a way to export .jpg files directly from Z-Brush? It does seem strange that I can't upload any of Z-Brush's export file types to the ZB forum!
Today's been productive, as you can see.
I've modified the tree mesh, twisting the trunk and branches with Transpose and the Nudge brush and deleting redundant polys from the far side that we just won't see; it's now ready for subdivision sculpting.
The bat creature has been posed, using the base figure model; and it is now holding the stick and string, made from z-spheres.
The rubber bat was fun to make. Again, entirely z-spheres, massaged with the Move and Standard brushes and converted to an adaptive skin mesh. Moved into place with Transpose.
The grass was a side bit of a ZB cylinder, the unwanted polys hidden and deleted. Subdivided to level eight, it was masked with stamped instances of Alpha 07, (the spotty one) and then the grass blades were pulled out with a combination of Deformation/Inflate, the Move brush and one more application of the Inflate deformer, to fatten them up.
The moon is a z-sphere lozenge adaptive skin, smoothed, sphere-ized and subdivided. This makes a ball without any poles: no pinching!
I am concerned about my limited time and am trying to pull up all the elements of the image together at the same time. Should I run out of time, there won't be any obviously unfinished parts. Fingers crossed!
