ZBC Interview: Jelmer Boskma for Look Effects "Warm Bodies"


Over the years, Jelmer Boskma (known at ZBC under the user name [Jelmer](http://www.zbrushcentral.com/zbc-user-gallery.php?uid=59532)) has used ZBrush to create some truly memorable characters. Who could forget his treatment of [Johnny Depp](http://www.zbrushcentral.com/showthread.php?75978-Johnny-Depp), or his [Senator Tumblestone](http://www.zbrushcentral.com/showthread.php?87128&p=686850&viewfull=1#post686850) and [Mr. Bigears](http://www.zbrushcentral.com/showthread.php?154323&p=876249&viewfull=1#post876249) creations? Over the last couple of years he has been pretty quiet on ZBC but that certainly isn't because he hasn't been creative! In fact he has been extremely busy, working on such projects as Tron: Legacy, Thor and more recently, Warm Bodies.

While zombies have appeared in a large number of productions over the years, Look Effects and Jelmer wanted to give them a new twist: creating a look where their clothing had actually begun to become absorbed into their decaying bodies. In today’s interview, he talks about how ZBrush was used to help accomplish that and much more!
