Thanks for all the comments! :) Here I'm posting an explanation of my process to deal with the scales detail, and a quick texture breakdown showing some layers. Gif texture breakdown: http://imageshack.com/a/img674/9994/kTRH8C.gif

    Thank you for detailing your workflow. The texture steps gif is great too. Where did you get the scales alphas that you use for the initial displacement ?

here a new image based on this sketch. My little daughter is coming to this world in a few days and this is how I imagine her sometimes. http://dfer32.deviantart.com/art/Redhead-472036236 hair made in zbrush, exported as curves in 3dsmax and used hair&fur modifier in max. tweaking and lots of tutorial watching got me to this result. I think its rather good.

Ranger Project video/image dump
This is a dump for some WIP and process images and movies for my summer 2014 ZbrushWorkshops course. I used Zbrush for design, polypainting, and some posing, Maya for retopo, UV, and some posing, and Photoshop for some concept work and texture touch ups . Here is what the final piece looked like in realtime, in Maya, viewport 2.0: 101200421 Here is a block-in of the initial proportions in Zbrush: 106084870 Here is what the costume in zbrush looked like before retopo: 99385225 Here is what the retopoed costume looked like in Maya: 106049316 Here are a couple of illustration videos I did in the middle retopo and UV layout just to break up the monotony of those tasks: 106153586 106174279 Here are some thumbnails I did to help generate some ideas about the final pose: 106139120 Here is a quick tutorial on the Dynamesh > Zremesher workflow I used: 106053179 Here is a test of the retopoed mesh in Maya in realtime: 100355201 Here is how I created the etherial flame on the sword: in Maya 106073376 Here are some assorted images showing some WIP progress as well: Textures as polypaint, and unwrapped/applied to UV shells. Retopoed meshes and UVs for final model. I had fun making this project and using it as a teaching tool. Thanks for checking this stuff out.

First post
Hi all, I've been playing with Zbrush quite a bit now but I just started discovering the power and simplicity of Keyshot. Here is a sculpt I rendered in Keyshot and I'd like to know what you guys think... On all levels sculpt, texture, and render. It is still a work in progress but I think it is the time for external feedback to potentially push it further in the right direction. Thanks in advance !

Key parts of the work were finished in ZBrush. The method is not difficult. Just copy and combine the elements together.

Hey all, decided to start a zketch journal to post all my unfinished ramblings and maybe finished stuff should that be a thing that might occur. Here's a project I'm working on! It's Ajani - Steadfast, from MtG. Getting ready to sculpt out the details. Trying to decide how I want to do his mane >_> Please ignore the lumpy feets. I'll hopefully keep this updated... Maybe some other ramblings soon too...

Fem Thief
Here's a game-ready character project I've just finished, it's based of Thief (2014). The high-poly character was almost entirely sculpted in ZBrush, with a few parts modeled in Maya and rebuilt in 3D-Coat. Images rendered in Marmoset Toolbag 2 and KeyShot. For more WIPs and some tutorials (one on using insert stitch burshes in ZBrush, one on threading lace using ZBrush and Maya) check out my artstation: http://www.artstation.com/artist/PaulP Please feel free to leave any comments, crits, or questions, and thanks for looking!
