ZBrush Interview: Frederik Storm


It’s time for another interview!

Expanding on our User Stories featuring how and why artists and companies are using ZBrush in their creative workflow, this interview focuses on a young artist’s personal journey into the world of ZBrush.

Nineteen years old at the time, Frederik Storm caught our eye from the moment he first presented artwork at ZBrushCentral. We were captivated by his enthusiasm, raw talent and very unique style, to say nothing of such artistic proficiency coming from someone so young!

Frederik became a beta tester for ZBrush 4 and is now attending the Animation Workshop school (Animwork) in Denmark, expanding his art skills to the next level.

In this interview, Frederik talks about his techniques for getting a concept off the ground, hard surface sculpting and how he achieves great results with the new Best Preview Render mode in ZBrush 4.

We hope you enjoy this foray into the creative mind of a young, up and coming artist who represents the future of the industry!

Many thanks to Frederik! His time spent answering our questions – as well as serving as a ZBrush 4 beta tester – is very much appreciated. Here’s hoping we see a lot more from him in the future!

Congrats on the interview.
Frederik has been one of my favorite zbrush artists. When I read the part about him being a huge fan of Crash Bandicoot and Naughty Dog I burst in laughter. I went through an EXACT SAME phase of printing Crash Bandicoot concept sketches and renders from the old Naughty Dog site and taping them on the walls of my room a few years back.
