    Awesome expression and articulation in the portrait. I love it. Great zbrush render. I've been spending a chunk of time improving my renders from zbrush. It's a ton of fun. Happy Halloween. [COLOR=#FFFF00]Post often, reply. Help others and give back...

    Thanks. She had such an expressive face it's tough to decide which expression to give her. Tweaking the BPR renders really is like some strange sort of alchemy. I don't really know what I'm doing, it's all trial and error - mostly error.

Chris' Sketchbook
Hey everybody, this is my first post. I have been playing around with zbrush for a little under 2 months now with no previous art education or experience. I thought I would go ahead and make a post showing a couple sculpts, and maybe get some critique (as harshly as you want to give it.) I hope to one day be as good as some of the artists I see here, and I know that without interacting with the best, there is no way to improve. Thanks for any criticism or tips!

Zbrush Process
here is some info on how I sculpted some of the details in ZBrush for the face details I used alphas that I quickly painted and alphas that are by default in ZBrush, and I also sculpted some of the details by hand with Standard or Dam_Standard brushes most of the drapery ( clothes and leather ) is done with Standard brush The hidden stitches on the leather are made with the Dam Standard brush, I first dig a long line with a big smooth Dam Standard and then go over it again with a small Dam Standard that has more intensity and more Lazy Step value to the other stitches are using an Alpha with increasing Lazy Steps, I remember that I found an alpha like this before, not sure where, so I made one for myself The ornaments on the metal are done with Zbrush's Surface Noise using UV, I first made the alpha in photoshop from some islamic ornaments reference I have in a book . and then use it for the Surface Noise

Tiny Troopers Alliance Characters.
I was hired by Kukouri Mobile Entertainment as a character artist for the recently released Tiny Troopers Alliance game. I modeled, textured and posed these two characters for the game. Though the timeline was really strict and also as I was supposed to match the original design style already created of the game, the end result came out pretty good. Kudos to Lasse Lehmusvaara, a very talented and awesome art director I had the opportunity to work with. We had great time bringing these cute little soldiers to life. I am really happy to see the game is doing really well. If you still haven't, check it out here : https://itunes.apple.com/app/id883523740 Hope u guys like it. Comments are welcomed. Happy ZBrushing

WIP- Angry Golfer Walrus
WIP. Designing a character based on someone I know, an alcoholic with an overwhelming ego. Trying to get the fatty folds around his arms, belly and neck just right. Needs to be seething with anger with a very proud stance. Planning on giving him golfers clothing, like an overweight Arnold Palmer. Would appreciate any feedback. Thanks!

Did some fixes to hands and feet. And I was unable to resist and started detailing. Though still not satisfied with general shape of hands. The fingers of her right hand are too straight and lack a gesture, there is no feel of bearing the weight. And looks like the left wrist is too short (result of deformation after the posing). Overall wrinkles appear to crisp, but I believe that with SSS shader everything would be OK. In the end I always can soften them manually. I hope that overall it looks a bit better now

"Durga" - By Surajit Sen
I created this artwork ***8220;Durga***8221; in ZBrush. For post production I used PS. Durga meaning "the inaccessible'' or "the invincible". The syllable "du" is synonymous with the 4 devils of poverty, sufferings, famine and evil habits. The "r" refers to diseases and the "ga" is the destroyer of sins, injustice, irreligion, cruelty and laziness. Goddess Durga is the original manifested form of Mother Adi-Parashakt . Durga, through all her forms, encompasses the essence of salvation and sacrifice. She is the mother of bounty and wealth. She is the embodiement of purity, knowledge, truth and self-realization. Devi Durga is the Ultimate Shakti or Mahashakti, the ultimate power inherent in all Creation. Goddess Durga represents the power of the Supreme Being that preserves moral order and righteousness in the universe. She is the energy aspect of the Lord. As Mahishasuramardini, Durga symbolizes the divine forces (positive energy) known as divine Shakti (feminine energy/ power) that is used against the negative forces of evil and wickedness. She is the destroyer of evil - with her ten mighty arms carrying lethal weapons she triumphantly slays the demon Mahishasura. Thank you Surajit Sen
