Meats Meier Lays Down The Hammer



After a long hiatus from the ZBrushCentral Forum, Meats Meier returns with a whip-lashing of new creations using some of  the latest features inside ZBrush 4R4. Meats has been busy lately working on some over the top and out of this world projects. If you are a fan of the legendary Roger Waters of Pink Floyd fame, you are no doubt aware of the ongoing 2012 The Wall World Tour. Our old buddy Meats is credited with working on the animations for this epic world tour and we couldn’t be happier! If you’re not familiar with The Wall, then buckle up, because your senses are about to be shattered. First released as a double album in 1979, The Wall has been celebrated as a musical masterpiece for over 3 decades. A film version of the album was released in 1982 and is still regarded by many as mandatory rock and roll historical viewing. If you can buy a ticket and see it live, you won’t regret it!
