Hi thanks for the appreciation! The first Elder Scrolls Online cinematic was finished months ago, but basically the zbrush specific involvement for this type of character can be sum up this way : In the blocking stage i took care of quickly block out the main elements as separated geometric pieces. We started with very detailed concept designs provided by the client, so the first goal was to quickly assemble all the parts and have something solid in terms of proportions. Some of these pieces were modeled from scratch in brush, other were coming from out libraries and some others , like the plates of the armor and other hard surface elements were polymodeled in 3d studio max. I brought everything into zbrush and started to play with the proportions and placement of the parts. Once i was satisfied with the overall proportions i brought back the objs from zbrush to max, to finalize topology for hard surface elements and on those parts that requires cloth simulation. Once topology and geometry was final i brought it back again into zbrush for a pass of detailing...wrinkles...scratches and all sort of surface enhancement . For the head we started with some very rough scans of actors chosen by the client. We had to intensively resculpt those geometries in order to match the likeness with the actors and add surface details like pores and wrinkles, based on photoreferences. When all the sculpting and the surface detailing were in place we rendered sample stills for approval (internal and external), this is a vital stage that we do in zbrush with BPR before proceeding to texturing. Here`s another example of BPR render before texturing on another project : Ale

    As with Thanos, I feel the arms are a little shorter than they should be. He also does not seem to have ankles, it's like the calfs go right into his foot. With bigger guys you should make the arms a tiny bit longer than you would normally expect them to...

World of Red Sands is a Go!
Hello everyone, Ive been away from ZBrush Central for some time now, but with Good Reason....Ive been working away on an exhibit of alien sculpture. I've been taking my ZBrush designs and creating large scale physical sculpture to show in gallery as an exhibit of alien life-forms including anatomy, design illustration and paintings. A lot of time has been spent just sourcing a mainstream gallery to take a chance and show the work... and I'm happy to say The Endeavor Arts Gallery and Event Space here in Calgary has agreed to host the first long term show! I'm excited to say that without ZBrush Central and its members who encouraged and supported my artwork as it developed here I would not have had the opportunity to take my work as far as I have. Like many here at ZBrush Central its been a passion of mine to see my designs in large scale, to have them accepted, shown and shared in all their alien glory for exactly what they are.... explorations into speculative biology, anatomy and design based in a foundation of traditional and digital skills which are presented purely as art, and and now its actually happening. I've had my project on a local crowd funding site called InvestYYC for several weeks now and I'm nearing my goal. All of the funds go to securing space, travel of the beasts and the creation and presentation of workshops on their creation. when I surpass my funding goal I can begin to expand the world, add additional artifacts and grow the number of its inhabitants. Its been an exciting time and I would love to share it with all of you. Please take a look at the recording below to see some of the progress, investigate the link below and if you can come on board as an investor there are some fun rewards to be had. Thanks to the great and powerful Pixologic You could even Win 1 of 3 Pixologic Prize Packs which include a ZBrush4R6 licenses a free upgrade to 4r7, ZBrush Hats T-shirts and Key Chains. If you live in Canada you will also receive a Charitable tax receipt. In addition you could have your likeness recreated as one of the inhabitants of Red Sands which I would travel with the exhibit as I expand the show to far away lands. Rewards also include hand made sculpting tools used in the creation of my sculptures, prints and much more....have a browse, share your thoughts and invest hard!.... DLhXBQCjWhg Click Here for InvestYYCC Details Here are a few images, Thanks everyone...more updates soon...

thanks for the comments guys! Here is an update on the single pass BPR tutorial… I know some of you guys are into making creatures, so I wanted to test the Skin Material I build for the tutorial with a quick creature concept I made yesterday. Here a screen capture of a SINGLE PASS BPR render from ZBrush, no compositing, 20 seconds render. I hope you guys like it! I will post a couple of other creature concepts and you guys can let me know which one you would like me to use to describe the process in the tutorial.
