Portrait of JFK
hello guys, I was a traditional scupt student now made myself to a digital sculptor by Zbrush, first time tried Zbrush I was impressed by its handy tools, and I dicidied to leard more about it and more about whole CG production.Here's my first ever FINISHED work , a CG portrait of the famous JFK. For this piece , I started it from some base spheres and then dynamesh it to sculpt almost everything like head, hands, clothes ,etc, and then zRemesh , for the hair and fur , they're fiber meshes exported as curves to Maya and applyed some hair systems and some nodes of a hair plugin,Shave and a haircut. Rendered in Vray for Maya. The final render size is near 8K and rendered time for days. Hope you like it, and happy zbrushing!

Thanks DrBo42, Here's a little tutorial on how I did the cloth pieces using Panel Loops. I was experimenting with techniques while making this dude. I found this workflow to be quick and pretty effective, though I am sure there are other good ways as well. If anyone else knows of any other workflow I would love the insight ^^ Hopefully this is helpful. Alex

Hi y'all, first let me show you 2 fun quickies.These were done to explore the orientation feature in conjunction with the roll feature.You can find the first one in the Brush palette and the second in the Stroke palette under modifiers.01 was polypainted then and rendered with BPR,no postwork.02 got filled with a reddish orange then AO masked and filled with black. Shadows turned off,two lights,one as radial light.Quick and easy fun. The next one is a Dynamesh and QRemesher test. Have a nice Ztime,J.

    Seeing as how this thread has been resurrected I just happened to see the last two images in #88 and you remarked how it might be "too heavy" for a jeweller to make these. Maybe, yes, but to a 3D Printer it would be a piece of cake - silver, gold,...

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

Realistic body in Blender - WIP
I am sort of new to this but is still improving. Sculpted and painted in Zbrush and rendered in Blender. Need to do something about thoose veins that looks like scars and work on the shader It is still a big leap for me, doing this for about a month.

    Looking good from my perspective, however I think you should concentrate on getting the basic forms down first. You are jumping too fair ahead with the detailing. I appreciate that you are new to this, continue to study anatomy and you will improve.

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
