Thought I'd try out Zbrush now that it is working.......had to partition the disk.
Started with an old model of mine.....slapped some shapes and color about, 'sketched' with the model...changed my mind a few times. Then went for a 'soft' art cheaty approach...(blending). Baked the model and background straight away in the first image here. All done with the blend tool and smudge tool..and paintbrush...then a little corelpaint..had three layers...baked them, then painted...stretched etc. Lost detail in jpgs.
Images in order of art whims.........
Welcome back Ed! Having admired your past posts I am ecstatic to see you back and at it again. I shall add you to my Muse collection Wonderful approach on this. I like the way you went from 3D to 2D paint style. The end result most definitely has the 2D look to it. Wonderful way to bring the point home
