    Default Halloween2009 (Mini Challenge)

    zbc_thread_main_banner_01.jpg


    Hello fellow ZBC Members!

    Halloween is getting close and I would like to invite everyone to participate in this tribute to a great tradition Pixologic has held for the last 8 years. This is my humble challenge for all, this Halloween season.

    CHALLENGE RULES:

    Pick a pumpkin from this patch, or grow your own. Sculpt and shape your pumpkin into whatever you desire, just keep it as realistic as you can. All forms of pumpkin carving are open (portraits, scary faces, silly, etc...) Use all the tools Zbrush offers. Full scenes are not required (just use a black background) but if you would like to, go for it! Just remember follow the TOS of ZBC, and most importantly have fun! Happy Halloween everyone! -Brian

    Pick a pumpkin from my patch! (just change the .txt to .obj)

    pumpkin_a.txt
    pumpkin_b.txt
    pumpkin_c.txt

    Later this week, I will demonstrate a simple, yet amazingly powerful way to light your Jackolantern...

    OK, I'll give a shot. I might be able to finish a Pumpkin. I was wondering if anyone would start one.

    Default Pumpkin carving, a little history

    This is a quick read. Just a link I found to help those who do not know what Halloween is. (yes, there are many!) I do not endorse this site...McAfee said it's safe...

    You would help to keep a great tradition alive... Although this is a mini challenge, and everyone seems to be busy... check this link for the last 8 years of ZBrush Central's Halloween Challenges.

    3Point14,

    Cool Pumpkin

    Sirquadalot,

    The pumpkins are coming. Just waiting for the weekend. Got the base done just need the time to get er done.

    It's all about marketing. Start telling people they ain't got a hair on their behinds if they don't make a pumpkin

    Default Very easy

    rolilli, it's easy, download the file, and in windows, right click on the icon and select, "rename". change the .txt extension to .obj. and click ok...(it will give you a warning about changing file extention...click ok. Also you can actually open the .txt file in windows note pad and see what went into these simple models! looking forward to your pumpkin carving. P.S you can make your own pumpkin and post the results if you are uneasy with this. I would completely understand! -Brian
