2016 ZClassroom Wel … Metal Slug Fan Art Time Lapse
This video will walk you through the entire workflow used to create the Metal Slug Tank fan art model at 4x speed. Starting from a single Cylinder3D primitive, Joseph Drust will narrate the entire journey from start to finish.
Metal Slug Fan Art … ZBrush for Concepting - Part 1
We'll start this series with a brief intro to Joseph Drust and Andrew Bosley, followed by an overview of the six part lesson. The second portion of this video jumps right into ZBrush as Joseph uses the default ZModeler Brush options to quickly generate building structures.
ZBrush for Concepti … ZBrush for Concepting - Part 2
Taking the buildings created in Part 1, let's use 2.5D and its functionality to create an Alpha.
ZBrush for Concepti … ZBrush for Concepting - Part 3
Now that we have an Alpha created from our buildings, let's use it to create Surface Noise. Once rendered with BPR, we'll convert it to editable geometry and prep our buildings for KeyShot.
ZBrush for Concepti … ZBrush for Concepting - Part 4
Let's use the ZBrush to KeyShot Bridge, we'll create a number of render passes from various KeyShot materials. These render passes will then be passed on to Andrew for the remainder of this lesson.
ZBrush for Concepti … ZBrush for Concepting - Part 5
Discover Andrew's technique from manipulating Joseph's renders and the start of his Photoshop texturing and paint over.
ZBrush for Concepti …

Thank you gabo1991. ZModeler is a powerful and effective modeling tool. When i am creating any kind of model i use Zmodeler as a base tool. Mostly i use 3 combinations of actions (fig.1). base mesh=qmesh; details=insert,inset; bridge=shape generator (just kidding but it works). Fig. 1 For example there was a lot of piping. I found the combination of Insert mesh with bridge action the most usefull when you want to creat specific shapes of piping (fig.2). Fig. 2

boozy floozie - Thanks so much, I've been admiring your illustration work in Zbrush for a while! I love all of the Illustrators that evolved from the Brandywine School and my personal library's full of books of their work so it's awesome if someone has seen even a hint of their style in my own work. Kryats - Thanks and no problem, it's my pleasure! Knacki - Thanks so much for you comment, it's always nice to hear from you! Yes of course, see my sketch below, I polished it off in photoshop back in 2012 over the top of the old sketch which was done back in 2007 i believe. It was just a silly scene I had in my head that I found cathartic to get out onto paper . I chose to sculpt it because I've been wanting to do my own work in ZB for a while and it feels like I've now come full circle from where I started. I added the Crow gang after watching the TV show Father Ted where the Crows keep stealing Father Jacks glasses to make their nest. I kinda liked the idea of the adventurer out for loot guarded by a gang of jealous Crows . I designed the Bard as a foil for the Hero, hes so drunk he's just along for a bit of fresh air and a sing song... Jhon_Erick - Thanks Jhon!!

Hi srlake314, Thanks for the kind words. I started with Zsphere because it is a quick and easy method for me to block out something. After I have the base form that made out of Zsphere, I hit adaptive skin and used ZremesherGuides Brush and hit Zremesh so I can a better topology on the base body. For the clothing, yes I created masks and extracted new subtool for the cloth from it. After that I use Topology Brush to retopologise the cloth meshes. At this stage, I unwrapped the UV of the meshes in Maya for surface detailing in Zbrush. Basically this is how I made the cloth for this character. Hope these help. Cheers!

Hi! Kind of new to this, usually work in the jewelry and architecture field, but here we go. This is a model of a slave i made for a new customer, i hope you like it! I kept the face relatively simple, but expressive for 3D printing, especially for smaller scales.
