Sandbox Alchemy - Works and WIPs

Hello,

This is my first time posting work on Zbrush Central, but I’ve been using this amazing forum as a technical resource for years. I am so thankful this place exists! I wanted to join the fun, at last, and share some stuff. Here’s a quick personal project of mine to get us started.

Creature Design by James Gurney (http://jamesgurney.com/site/)
From his book series, “Dinotopia”

Probably one of my biggest childhood/ teen inspirations was the world of Dinotopia, by James Gurney. This book series is the stuff of world-building dreams. If you haven’t heard of it, I highly recommend taking a look.

More dinosaurs!
Today, I’m sharing a Dimorphodon (small pterodactl-like dinosaur).

Creature Design inspired from James Gurney (http://jamesgurney.com/site/)

“Each small Dimorphodon can memorize messages and will deliver them to various destinations - somewhat like a cross between a carrier pigeon and a parrot.”

“Master Pilot Amelia Earhart”
Zbrush Sculpt and Paint
(Personal Exercise - Fan Art)

Based on Amelia Earhart. Inspired by the world of Dinotopia, by James Gurney (http://jamesgurney.com/site/).

A fanciful fan re-imagining…
In 1937, Amelia Earhart disappears somewhere over the Pacific. At this time, she crash-lands on the lost continent of Dinotopia.
She is found on the shore and nursed back to health. As she learns the ways of Dinotopia, she discovers a new destiny…
as a Master Pilot Skybax rider, leader of a flight of Quetzalcoatlus Skybax (Pterodactyls).

In most of Earhart’s piloting photos, she appears unconcerned with convention, and wholly in her element as an aviatrix and adventurer. I aimed to capture this spirit in this work.

Skybax riders are part aviator, part acrobat, part world messenger, and their attire reflects this. Master Pilots wear blue and gold.
This costume is my own whimsical design, inspired by Dinotopia fashion, with a touch of steampunk air pirate.Gamble_Celeste_2018_Amelia_01.jpgGamble_Celeste_2018_Amelia_01.jpg

“Master Pilot Amelia Earhart, Skybax Rider”
Zbrush Sculpt and Paint
(Personal Exercise - Fan Art)

Based on Amelia Earhart.
Inspired by the world of Dinotopia, by James Gurney (http://jamesgurney.com/site/).

“Breathe Deep, Seek Peace!”
Amelia Earhart returns, with her Skybax and Dimorphodon companions.
Posed, they ready themselves for an incredible adventure!
My tribute to a beloved world.

I learned so much about Zbrush, and looking forward to learning more.
(Used Zbrush 2019 to render with the new camera.)
