    Hi, For a beginning it's not bad at all !!! You seem to already nail pretty well most of the essential primary shapes of the face. The best advice I would give to all the beginners out here is to always turn around your model a lot, sculpt it...

Hi im 17, new to zbrush and self teaching
hi everybody, I'm a 17 year old girl who has just started Zbrush and I'm LOVING it so much, does any one have any projects that are good for beginners? Here's one I've started but not yet completed.

Spartan Rage Some more WIP pics
I'm posting some WIP images. I've been playing with cape and hair. As for the cape I'm thinking of look and feel of some kind of baroque cloth with decent amount of folds, floating in space as if it was sunk in deep water so it slowly flows creating round shapes. I want hair to conform to the very same principle. Well obviously I need to make the hair a little longer to accomplish that. I'm also planning to give our spartan something more to wear. At the very beginning I saw him wearing only helmet, cape and shin covers (greaves?) but right now I'm considering wrapping his pelvis area with some leathery underwear

BjarmiSaem's Sculpts
Hey, I'm Bjarmi Sæmundsson. I'm a student at Game Artist Academy. For my ZbrushCentral debut I'll start with Disney's Hercules. Technically it's still a WIP since I'm working on retopoing it completely (an ongoing process that has lasted few months) I usually start with the Mudbox basemesh. I just started by extruding toes before going into Zbrush. My workflow is that I try to get as far as I can push it for each of the levels of the mesh. Getting the silhouette and as much facial resemblances in the lowest level as I can. I think the shoes are entirely 3ds Max also the strips on the armor. The armor itself is a mesh extract in Zbrush I retopologized inside 3ds Max. Clay Vray inside of 3ds Max. Zbrush Render

Spartan Rage project
Hi there. Here's my new project I've been working on lately. Actually I found out I sculpted this furious spartan and his shield half a year ago and it was waiting patiently on my hard drive so I decided lately to give it a go and advance my work on it. here's some kind of anatomy study for the project.

Gold Rush
Hey guys. Here is one of my favorite shots from a commercial I worked on last month. I was responsible for all the environment modeling (except for the mine cart and gear machine in the middle), all shading, lighting, and rendering. The basic geo was given to me and I brought it into Zbrush to do all the magic. Modeling and sculpting done using 3 basic brushes: Clay Tubes, Clay Buildup, and Move brushes. I also made use of NoiseMaker to make all the elongated surface details throughout. The cave was then decimated and brought into Maya for shading, lighting, and rendering using Mental Ray and maps I baked out from Zbrush.
