    Default LinuXr17 Zbrush Works

    Hi folks

    Just started Zbrush a year ago and fall in love with it. Time to post some of my works and share my experience with this wonderful tool. I'm a animation trainee in a small Character Animation Studio in Stuttgart, Germany. (www.mark13.com) My focus is on animation but for small studio reason I started allrounding in the World of 3D. In near future i will also post some animation examples. But here we go with my first still examples.
    The First example shows a Fitnesstrainer for a webpage, the second my first subsurface scattering test. The Monster is for a transformation I work actually. The wale was my first zbrush experience with Zbrush2 and a lowpoly mesh /normalmap. The Chameleon will get some animated textures in future.

    Hope you like it. Fell free to coment and critizice.

    Default Old Man Model

    Here my work in progress of the OldMan Model. I will also do a muscle system that will be visible in animation. Material of skeleton is rendered in XSI just with the cavity map multiply and normalmap of course. The Oldman is still work in progress, fine detail will be done next time.

    Hope you like it

    Default Sss

    Lip_the_pencilboy

    HERE IS A GREAT TUTORIAL: http://www.sjdigitalsculptor.com/tutorials1.html

    I worked it out in a similar way, without final gathering and hdri. I used 3 spotlights and Ambient Occlusion. also baked the cavitymap from zbrush in my diffuse and specular map.

    good work, i think the first image of the old man face is good, maybe i would work more on the hair in ears and eyebrows to make it more refined and you could try some gi lighting, i like the chameleon too, maybe increasing the resolution/detail of the texture and adding some sss could help enhancing the final image, keep it up

    Default NEw SSS Shading

    combatmantra: Thanks for your feedback and help. I am not familar with Global Illumination, but maybe I find time doing a final gathering test. To do real skin there is no other way (?) Here are first tests with your shading tipps, Hope you like it. eman"s shader is much faster than the xsi intern and simpler to handle. Thanks

    Do you run Zbrush with linux??? Your name suggests so and since I'm not very lucky with running zbrush on wine I'm quite curious if and how you've managed that.

    Cheers,

    Default Completely different subject

    Hi There. Today I discovered Projection Master again. After ZBrush2 I find no useability for Projection Master. But today I discovered some nice 2.5D Brushes to get correct Modeling for HardEdgeStuff. The Linell-Brush is a great Brush for that... Here my result: Done in 5hours.
