    Default Grot's zsphere sketches

    Hey all, I'm fairly new to this zbrush lark but I'm pretty taken with zsphereII sketching. Didn't want to clutter up other people threads to I'm starting this one.

    I can't seem to bring myself to actually skulpt on my sketches, I love the style of the zsheres just a bit too much

    Anyway, let me know what you think.

    Todays effort:

    that looks great! I suppose you could learn a fair bit about aesthetics from the zsphere sketches - i.e. analyze why they look cool (they do!), I think it has quite a bit to do with form separation and curvature hinting (via. the patterned lines). Maybe you could start your sculpting by trying to replicate some of those principles, starting with form definition. You might find something that looks even cooler

    One of the best efforts I've seen so far.

    Default dirigible

    Thanks for the positive responses!

    I was really struggling with 3.1, seemed like I would spend hours fiddling around and make very little progress, but these swanky new zspheres (creating an armature then filling out the form) is much more similar to what I used to do when I did stop-mo animation and had to make puppets for that.

    Super-glitcher: I totally see what you are saying about aesthetics, I'm definatley going to keep it in mind when I do eventually start sculpting.

    Anyway, its not finished (the pilot's not done and theres some bits that need tweeking) but I have savage lazy-mouse cramp so I have to call it a day, hopefully finish it off tomorrow. Here is my zsketch for today:

    Thumbs up Very nice Grot.....very nice indeed.

    Just what I've read in another thread....Zsphering is becoming an art of it's own.

    Wonderful work. Thanks for sharing.

    fantastic work makes me realise what kind of a tip of the Zsphere Iceburg we all find our selves at

    Default Capturing Z-spheres roundness?


    I also like the look of the Z-spheres is there any way to make an adaptive mesh that will preserve the Z-sphere spherical shapes?

    It wouldn't be ideal for most models but definitely would be a cool and useful option in certain situations.

    Default that's alata ZS!

    Interesting work!
    ZSII are their own art, this design looks good as is, but are you going to skin it?
