Yay, I’m learning zbrush finally. Here’s my first character done in Zbrush. Rendered in Maya.

First I picked out a little doodle that I thought would be fun to model.

I started by putting some simple primitives together in Maya.

Here it is rendered with some simple ambient occlusion.

Here’s the model after bringing it into zbrush and smoothing and sculpting it.

And here’s the final render again.

    Polypaint in zbrush, the UV mastered, the opened and refined in Photoshop.

    This reminds me of one of those huge canvas paintings that you see when you walk into a gallery where people spend way more money than I’ll ever have. I don’t know how you turn this into an oil or acrylic painting, but you should try. It’s really brilliant.

    Thanks JT! Actually if I had the time I’d love to try something like that.

Sometimes I forget how much I enjoy drawing things with some detail.

    Wow, I can’t get enough of this shade of blue.

    And this guy looks like the younger, stoned-out brother of the Cheetos mascot. Maybe they’ll want him as a product tie-in perhaps? Reach out to a new demographic…

    thanks man. I wish I had more time to try more of these. I think you’re the only person who visits my blogs anymore.
