Fareed used ZBrush to bring his own rendition of this timeless desert wanderer to life. The props and character were sculpted and polypainted inside ZBrush.

Racing into the past has never been easier. ZBrushCentral artist Daniel McKay knows this better than most, as he showcases his latest hard surface model. This one harkens back to the days when open wheel racing was more dangerous than tight rope walking. This latest piece is inspired by British Racing Motors Mark 1 formula one race car of the 1950’s.

The entire car was “built” inside ZBrush and begun by using primitives and Dynamesh. Daniel was able to arrive at the finish line by using features like Insert meshes, Clipping brushes and Panel Loops to name a few. Visit his blog to see more work from this talented ZBrushCentral.
