Yeahh!!! Thx pixologic, it's damn cool to have Zbrush caps!
you have to have a certain kind of brain to be able function and flourish within zbrush, mark bannerman has the right kind
I can only describe myself as a "groupie" ( that hurts on so many levels )
What I had written under one of your previous works is the only
thing I can think of to say here.
Whenever I see your work posted it is like someone opened
a window and let in clean, fresh air.
I thank you for posting the kind of work that keeps me coming
back here again and again.
Thank you so very much.
Thank you all for such a generous response, the support from you all is such a great inspiration to me , be it feedback , good humor or technical help.
And yes Angst it was exactly as you remembered
Shame on me for being so shabby.PS It's funny. I remember in the old ZAcademy days (can I mention that august forum here?) people would flirt with you and Kathy shamelessly.
I also recall when you announced you were a guy... there was about seven minutes of embarrassed silence (or self-conscious coughing) and I laughed open-mouthed at some of the backpedaling that ensued by macho artists desperately attempting to change the subject to anything else.
......Nobody tries to be lah-di-dah or uppity--There's a cup-o'-tea for all.
The offchance of seeing a new piece by boozy is one of the main reasons I visit these forums on a regular basis. His surreal compositions always put a grin on my face.
Humanity and joy in shovel-loads, with just a hint of melancholy - it's wonderful.
Great interview with lots of good advice......You are the only artist on this forum where I find myself calling my wife over to look at your work whenever you have a new post. We both love all of your work.
Oh, the humanity! So tempted to let Lemo have the last word...
I wholeheartedly agree with your Tip No. 1.
Really great interview, and I love your work.
Great work Mark. Always inspiring seeing the ideas behind your works and the fun factor that also makes me happy just by looking at it
I think there's no art without ideas so I think you're doing art, not only technical exercises as the vast majority. It's very refreshing looking at works like this in this CG world full of Orcs, Hulks, gorillas, barely dressed CG chicks and all of that. They are sometimes awesome technical achievements but most of the time they lack of meaning, a story to support that piece of "art". More details will never mean better work (but surely impress the "masses", as we know). Of course I include myself on the bunch, since I'm modeling a Hulk right now (I call him "Shrek", just for a change ).
I particularly feel more inspired checking out works like yours than an over detailed wrinkled head, where the details serve only to disguise a weak structure underneath.
So, keep up the good work sir. I'm your fan
Your work is a pleasure to view. I have always enjoyed your painterly approach to your creations, and this recognition is well deserved! Way to go Flooz!
