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.

Creature and Texture Study

This is a project I did for my photoshop painting class. I forgot how many textures we had to combine… but the focus was on using a variety of animals and textures for the sake of creativity and practice with realism.

I made a red panda dragon. Sort of. It was actually based on a photo of a baby I used to babysit. I can see the resemblance actually.
