Featured ZBC Thread: LrZo



Newcomer “LrZo” has recently received a top row nod for his sculpt based on the French comics “Robin Hood” by Brremaud and Simon Loche. LrZo started off wanting to create a sculpt to honor the original artwork, but the colors made him expand upon his original idea.

Featured ZBC Post: PSTCHOART



ZBrushCentral favorite Tsvetomir Georgiev (aka PSTCHOART) is at it again! He has been using and abusing (in the best possible way) the new features in ZBrush 4R3. This model was made entirely in ZBrush and is a prime example of the power of FiberMesh and BPR.

Featured ZBC Post: stumpf



ZBrushCentral staple Ralph Stumpf (aka stumpf) has posted another character in his “Scary Toons” series. This one is titled “The Ride of the Valkyrie” and includes two very complex characters. For the sculpt, Ralph used DynaMesh heavily, and he used BPR for the final render.

Turntable Update: Jerry Groschke



ZBrush artist Jerry Groshcke (aka lazy noob on ZBC), has provided a new turntable for his gallery at This one is a model of Davy Jones that was based on artwork by Tiago Hoisel. Jerry found DynaMesh an integral part of his sculpting process and used BPR for the final render.

“Dynamesh is fast, easy and gives artists freedom to do what is in mind in one nice workflow.”

New Tutorial from Eat 3D: A Comprehensive Overview of ZBrush 4, 4R2, and 4R3



Our friends from Eat 3D have just released a new ZBrush tutorial! This one is a comprehensive overview of all of the new features of ZBrush 4, 4R2, and 4R3. Here’s what they have to say about the new course:
“In this DVD, Michael Pavlovich takes up where he left off on the ZBrush 4 Comprehensive Video. With the release of ZBrush 4 R2, R2b, and R3 comes many new amazing features and Michael explores them in detail. He first starts off with an overview of Dynamesh and then goes into the many new Brushes. Next, Michael goes into using Noisemaker in R3 and 4 chapters on the exciting new Fibers System. Other topics include: Vector Displacement, Micromesh, Transpose, Materials, Wax Preview, and BPR Filters. Finally, Michael demonstrates the sculpting and painting of a multi-part pedestal for the cowboy.”

Since there have been a few updates in the past few months, this course is great for anyone who needs to be caught up to speed with the new features.
