Hello fellow artists, I thought it would be cool to start a progressional thread of my work as I get deeper into the program. :smiley:

Please feel free to comment as desired and critiques are always more than welcome!

Any tips, tricks and feedback is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Self Portrait









Final Render in Maya with Mental Ray.

This is a quick comp I had played with before finalizing my sculpt. Needed a bit of work with polypaint and fibermesh at this point.


Here’s the final comp of Mr. Cuddles. Took quite a while to get the hang of the fibermesh settings and doing my first comp from Zbrush to Photoshop. Love the workflow, I’m sure next time wont take so long! :smiley:

C&C are always welcome.


Hello all, this is a piece I recently finished. I call him “The Brain”.

Sculpted with dynamesh and eventually remeshed to use Subdiv levels. I used a base mesh I’ve had for some time for the brain, can’t recall the artist that created it :confused:. If you recognize the brain model please reply with a name so I can give the credit where due.

C&C welcome as always!

Glad to see you’ve finally started a thread on zbc, can’t wait to see what you turn out next :+1:

Thanks, I’m glad to finally be here. Now it’s just time to keep working on improvement.:wink:

This is a quick display of an eye tool I’m working on in Zbrush. Made the Eye in Maya and applied UV’s. Then exported to Zbrush and applied the textures from an eye creation PSD I made from various images and such off of google and other sites that I could blend together. The eyes are 100% rendered in Zbrush BPR and untouched in Photoshop.

**C&C Welcome as always ** Thanks in advance :smiley:

Nice work. I would love to see your render settings and materials. Keep it up!

Wow! Those eyes are fantastic. Would love to see a making of.

sexyy eyes :slight_smile: i too want to see a tutorial!!

Thank you all!!! I’m glad you like them. It’s still a work in progress as I want to tweak a few things, BUT I will make sure to put together a tutorial or making of for you!

Hey Everyone, I appreciate your support!!! Here’s the making of workflow for the final eye. Please let me know if you have any questions and I’ll do my best to help out, my email is Dvalk3D@gmail.com :smiley:

I used the same veiny texture for the Scerla to so that the color bump settings would show better…

Sorry for such a big size, just wanted to make sure the images and text wouldn’t be hard to see.

Share and enjoy! :smiley:

This is another render I did using a blue color for the Iris :wink:

Thank you for this. I know how much work goes into creating a mini tutorial like this. I think you have done a wonderful job. Great results. Nice, clean directions and grabs of all of the settings. I will steer my students to this thread for sure.



Very NIce eye texture. Was it found on google, or was it made by you??

I made a PSD from a bunch of pictures from both google and stock Images I’ve purchased. Not sure which ones those are now to be honest, I have so many. I cut
the Iris out of all of the photos and had a separate Scerla color, so chances are it’s a mix. I’m sure there are plenty on google!

Wow this is so generous of you.

Can’t wait to give it a go.

I’ll post my results.

Thanks so much.

Thanks a lot for your eye tutorial. I’ll surely dig into it soon :slight_smile:
