The studio that had you “tap-tap-tapping” away in the seminal hit “Rock Band”, recently secured crowd funding for a reboot of the Amplitude franchise. Harmonix knocked this one outta the stratosphere and secured enough “greenbacks” to keep fans of the PlayStation 2 hit driving forward in pure rhythmic style! Check out the Kickstarter campaign to see some behind the scenes action featuring your favorite digital clay, ZBrush. We can’t wait to get “amped” all over again!

Sister To The Divine

The team of Masters and Munn lay the foundation for what could invariably be the shape of things to come in the world of traditional sculpture. Using ZBrush to design the feathers for this divine creature takes a progressive approach at propelling classical figurative art into the digital age.  Each feather is sculpted using ZBrush and brought to life by way of 3D printing. Once the feathers are printed, a copper plating process is incorporated. We’ll take one! Be sure to see more cutting edge sculptural works from this dynamic duo by visiting their website.

Visit ZClassroom for video tutorials highlighting features like FiberMesh and MicroMesh. You’ll be one step closer to designing your very own “winged wonders”.

Check out his breakdown for how to generate surface damage and paint wear.
