I’ve Been Discovering ZBrush

And I love it.

Here are some of my first projects. They are my first attempts, my first mistakes, and I have to say I’m pretty happy with the results. Not to mention I just like it. I am watching tutorials and practicing more. While I am happy with these I know I have a long way to go. Assuming my computer can take it- sometimes I was limited in my details and subdivision because of my computer. Oh well. I am trying to learn some methods around this for efficient geometry and models.

It’s also helped me realize how far I have to go in anatomy study (that it’s basically a lifetime of learning) and it has helped me progress with anatomy, even with the little I have done so far.

Yeah, I’m gushing about this y’all. 🙂

A experimental take on Zuko from Avatar:LAB, and first attempt at clothes and posing. Man. So many things I’ll do differently next time.

Second Modo Class Project

I haven’t decided if I hate Modo or if I’m just experiencing a sharp learning curve in 3D art. My feedback from teachers has been very hopeful- however my 3D classes have been really the only ones that make me worry if I’ll get a project finished, despite how much effort I put into it. Hours and hours can = nothing to show for it… I’m not used to that.

Still. I can’t decide what I think of this field.

The project was to recreate Trident Gum Layers in 3D

I start Zbrush next semester. I’m pretty excited about that actually.

My First Finished 3D Model

This past semester I took 3D modeling 1. This is my final for that class done with Modo. Modo killed one computer during that class… I hope the new used one I got now will survive 3D modeling 2.

Anyway, 3D modeling was totally new to me, so I enjoyed start to dabble in this field of illustration last semester.  I liked modeling the wax and adding the point light in the flame.
