This is a project that's been on the go in some form or other for quite a while. It started as a zbrush sketch I did in my spare time, and then I did the ecorce at work, as a pitch for a project which never came to fruition.
Since then it's just of sat around doing nothing, so I thought I'd let it see the light of day with a render.
Everything except the veins (which started life as nurbs) and the render was done in zbrush.
I've uploaded the .ztl tool aswell, which you can get here. I find the foot such a mind numbingly complex part of the body to get my head round, so hopefully that might help some other people get to grips with it a bit. Technically property of 3DFramework though, so don't use it for commercial work. And don't put it on your reel either
The foot itself was a study from a cast that I have. I'm guessing from a greek or roman sculpture, but if anyone recognises it, please let me know, I'd love to know where it came from.
I can't guarantee the accuracy of the underlying anatomy (the veins for example, I found were represented quite differently in different anatomy books, so I winged it a bit), or that I've made the correct interpretation of what is causing each of the surface bumps and details. So bear that in mind, and don't use it as a guide if you're a doctor
Happy New Year everyone, hope you have a good and productive one.
