    Default Free Assets - Male Bust Starter Kit

    I've been a lurking fan on Zbrush Central for a couple of years now and will occasionally add the odd post or two, but I felt it was time to come out of the shadows and be a part of this amazing, inspiring, and sharing community.

    I have put together a starter tool kit for those of you (like myself) always on the lookout for a clean mesh to play with. I'm self taught and still have a lot to learn, but I've come up with a clean bust mesh that I'm pretty proud of. I did the original mesh in Zbrush, cut out the eyes and mouth in Cinema 4D (my modeler of choice) and re-topologized in TopoGun all the while banging my head against the desk until I came up with a low poly mesh with no triangles (I hope – it’s my first clean mesh – yay!).

    I've played around with it a bit in Cinema 4D and made three variations that should cover all of the basic alien/super hero/ogre/etc. type models most of us seem fond of making. The variations are: Base w/out ears, Base w/out nose, and Base w/out ears or nose. Just for fun I've posted a pic of a rough "fish guy" tweak I did in about two minutes using the "no nose/no ears" mesh to give a little inspiration.

    I've also done some sculpting on the main base mesh in order to flesh out the face a bit and provide landmarks for those uber-noobs out there – you know who you are.

    I hope this comes in handy for some of you out there, especially those just starting out. Please let me know how these work out and do post pics of models you make with the bases...it could be fun to see what inspired works come out of this.

    Please feel free to distribute and share the mesh with your friends but please do give me credit (holla) if you use this mesh in your presentation works...*It gives me a warm fuzzy.

    Again, thanks to all of you out there who share your amazing works with us every day! This is truly the greatest site around.

    Here are some pics of the busts included in the kit:
