The August issue of Newsweek featured the usual brand of in-depth news but this time with a twist. Those with a sharp eye may have noticed the cover art more than the headlines. Everybody’s favorite digital sculpting software ZBrush was at it again. This time, construction of the spiny hand featured in the “Border Crisis” cover story was the “handy” work of ZBrushCentral member wbstudio. The project came together with the help of an Insert Mesh brush found on the Bad King website. You can see more from the wbstudio inside ZBrushCentral.
