Young Rock! Parade Balloon

This was an awesome sprint project with my friends at Giant Step Studios! I had the privilege of designing and sculpting this balloon for Dwayne Johnson’s new TV series “Young Rock” coming February 2021.

I was responsible for designing by pencil sketch and concept sculpting in ZBrush. I also created the final model with topology, UVs and textures. Other artists were responsible for the rigging, animating, ropes and roto-scoping animation. A HUGE thanks to my friend and former student Ash Samet for referring me to the gig.


Haha…this is so good, the rock as an inflatable balloon!!! :pray:

Thanks Raphael! :pray::pray::pray:

You literally gave The Rock an inflated ego. Or at least a swelled head. :stuck_out_tongue:

I saw this in the parade. Had no idea that it was created using ZBrush. Very cool, and well done.
