Jose Alves da Silva's (aka Zeoyn) Sketchbook

In order to keep everything together I am creating a Sketchbook thread. I will post some of my previous work and all my future work using ZBrush in here! I hope you like it!

Le Rabbit

Mouse Love

The Boxing Kangaroo

Barrio Guy

Tequila Tatu - an Armadillo’s Alcohol Addiction




Here are the ZBrush sculptures used to create some of my images:

A small ZBrush Tip video I have made when I found the virtues of the Smooth Directional brush :smiley:

5 stars from me.
I think you should do a little tutorial on lighting and rendering. It will be really very helpful.

ehh.nice render

Hey José, great to see you here :slight_smile:

Awesome, awesome work you have here, it’s strange that you didn’t have a sketchbook before :smiley:
This thread will be inspirational, as a benchmark of the kind of work I’d like to achieve :wink:

Um abraço!

Your art adorns countless desktops as wallpaper! It’s famous. Great talent. 5 stars.

Thanks a lot for all the nice comments! :smiley:

Answering some of the questions:
-Yes, I am from Portugal :slight_smile:
-All the images are rendered in 3DS Max with VRay, except for the Kangaroo which is rendered with Mental Ray.
-Regarding the lighting, if you go to my website www.artofjose.com in Goodies section under Tutorials you have links to some “making ofs” in which I also talk about the light. I also explain lighting in depth in the articles of the “Boxing Kangaroo” and the “Barrio Guy” which I have written for 3D Creative magazine, but those were contracted so I can not show them, you would have to buy the magazine, sorry. :slight_smile:

LBelerique> Hi bud! I should have made a sketchbook thread before. I have been posting stuff separately but from now on I will keep it all together. Abraço!

Here are some photos of the 3D Prints of the Barrio Guy and the Welder Girl:






Looks awesome. Its cool how they stand on their own. They must of set you back a bit, they look pretty big.

They are not that big (it is about 1/10th scale) Barrio Guy is 15 cm and the Welder Girl is about 17 cm. I would love to have those at 1/6th :slight_smile:
