Industrial Light & Magic and ZBrush featured in Disney World Backlot Tour


Industrial Light & Magic and Disney feature the use of ZBrush in a video about the creation of Davy Jones in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest, part of the Walt Disney World Backlot Tour. A while back Pixologic.com featured an interview with ILM on the use of ZBrush for the creation of the characters in Dead Man’s Chest and their details, such as their wrinkles and the barnacles and sea creatures covering them. In the video above from the Disney World exhibit, Hal Hickel discusses how ILM was able to achieve the incredible realism of Davy Jones and the CG pipeline.

This week ZBrushCentral is featuring ZBC member tes3D, Robin Benes, in the ZBC Top Row! From head to toe, pegged leg to flintlock pistol, this goblin pirate has more details than you can find in just one viewing. Check out his punk inspired pirate boots and his cutlass/pistol combo weapon – fantastic!
