Even The Tough Fall Hard



Something about this sculpt harkens back to the gritty quality of Sin City. Yet, with the full color and cute little dog laying the lick down, the similarities are short lived. This latest ZBrushCentral post by the talented Rudy Massar is a great juxtaposition of the hard and soft. The facial expression really sells the piece and smooches its way onto the TopRow. Still, the thought of Mickey Rourke and his family of Chihuahua’s runs deep. Rudy nailed this one. Check out his user gallery for more of the cute, cuddly, and hardcore!

Dripping Cool



With a liquid quality all its own, this latest ZBrushCentral post by Ziya Goncu drips its way onto the Top Row. The creepy are only the beginning inside zgoncu’s arsenal of digital sculpts.
