An artist fairly new to ZBrushCentral, neverwintered, just got a Top Row award for his “No Fear” post. The details and textures on this guy are incredible, and it was done mostly in ZBrush. For your viewing pleasure, he’s posted a giant detailed image as well as a shot of the model in the red wax material. Now this should provide you enough inspiration to get you through the rest of the week!

We have a new Top Row thread from veteran member Daniel Crossland (aka Pteropus vampyrus). His “Desert Louse” was made for a making of tutorial in 3D Artist Magazine. The concept was done by Dan Baker and Daniel modeled and did the HD texturing in ZBrush. He’s posted a bunch of images from the tutorial on his thread, so check it out!

We have a new artist that has just been added to the Turntable Gallery. A warm welcome goes out to Antonio Peres, who has shared his “Troll” sculpt with us. The characters were modeled in ZBrush 4R2 and utilized the FiberMesh feature. You can see the full 360 turnaround at the ZBrush Turntable Gallery as well as additional views and renders on his thread at ZBrushCentral.
We have a top row thread from artist Luo Qisheng, featuring a plethora of anatomy studies. The lighting in the final rendered images is pretty amazing, but don’t miss page 2 where the screen grabs from ZBrush are posted. Luo did most of the work in ZBrush: “I think 90% part of work was done in ZBrush, some even 100%, so many awesome tools there make me very comfortable when doing sculpting.”

Artist Moumene Sofian of Carioca Studio recently posted a thread with three characters he did along with Florin Enache (Interior), Andrei lazar (Interior), Ghita Morar (Monsters), and Dragos Coman (Postproduction). The mosters were made for a McDonalds campaign and heavily used ZBrush. Check out the Top Row thread where you can find the final product along with ZBrush shots.
Artist Jose Alves da Silva recently received a Top Row nod for an image he made for a tutorial in 3D Artist magazine. The modeling was done 100% in ZBrush, and he’s posted some nice closeups as well as a few shots of his models. The tutorial can be found in issues 43 and 44, with the first chapter being in this month’s edition.
See Jose’s top row thread at ZBC and pick up a copy of 3D Artist Magazine to see his tutorial.
We have three new artists who have been recently added to the Turntable Gallery, as well as an update from an existing member. We would like to welcome Shuling Chung, Sterling Sheehy, and “Art Machine” Pierre Thériault to the group. Their artwork demonstrates a great amount of skill and detail, and we’re happy to have them as the newest members of the gallery!
We also have updated work from artist Patricio Ruales Lopez, whose attention to detail when it comes to the human form is stunning.
