    Default My return to ZBrush!

    [font=Times New Roman', 'serif][font=Times New Roman', 'serif][font=Times New Roman', 'serif][/font][/font][/font]
    [font=Times New Roman', 'serif][font=Times New Roman', 'serif][font=Times New Roman', 'serif]This is really my "first" sculpture in ZBrush 3.1. All the jobs I have had over the last few years have never needed it to be used.[/font]
    [font=Times New Roman', 'serif]Now that I'm between jobs, I finally have some time to learn it. A lot sure has changed since version 2! [/font]

    [font=Times New Roman', 'serif]I started with a great default head from modo 401 Contents by Jacques Defontaine. If you have seen my website, you will notice I have a few zombie/dead heads already on my site. What can I say, I like the "Living Dead".....in fact, the of the first films I worked on in Makeup Effects was George A. Romero's "Day of the Dead".[/font]

    [font=Times New Roman', 'serif]I hope you all like it. There is really some GREAT work on this site! [/font]

    [font=Times New Roman', 'serif]I now need to make NEW sculptures.....and not more a zombies.[/font][/font]

    Welcome back
    Great start on the zombyhead.
    As Ville sayd great work on your site amazing clay works.
    Makes me want to have clay.
    If you not have yet check out clay tubes in combination with flatten tool.
    I think its what resembles real sculpting with clay best.

    also try turning gravity on when you sculpt (if you haven't already), it might feel more natural when you work especially since you work with real clay too

    this zombie kind of reads more as a drawing than a 3d sculpture, not sure why

    good work though.. and i was on your website enjoying the view
    lots of canceled disney films, what's wrong with disney ? lol

    take care

    Here is my latest sculpt.
    Just a old-man-character head....made to look like a rough-sculpture.
    broadstroke - I have not tried turning gravity yet but I will test it out!
    Disco Stu - Clay tubes played a big part in making this model.

    You got some great sculpts. Lots of character. I'm also a big fan of the first 3 Romero dead films. I think he lost his mojo recently.The third has the best makeup, really loved the jawless zombie and the brain zombie.

    when I get some freetime (rare these days) I will check out your site.

    Thanks womball!

    I really like "Dawn of the Dead". When it came out I think I saw it about 6 times, but I also liked "Day of the Dead". I agree that "Day" had the best makeup effects, but for it's time, "Dawn" was really good.

    Here is a character that I'm making in ZB. It started out as a human head made in modo. I wanted to make it "fun" and scary. These are just ZB renders.
