This guy needs no introduction. Morgan Freeman has played the role of some memorable characters throughout his career. ZBSee member mridulson does him justice with this “likeness” sculpt. The whole thing started life as a simple sphere and took final form using a combination of sculpting and re-topology tools like ZRemesher guides, ZRemesher, Projection and Alphas inside ZBrush. Be sure to stop by his user gallery to see an in-depth breakdown of his process, including texturing and rendering for his final image. Learn more about mridulson here.

ZBSee member Undoz goes the distance with this recent addition to the Top Row. The concept for the piece comes from Börkur Eiríksson and Kári Gunnarsson. This Valkyrie character was created for the Eve Prophecy Cinematic Trailer. The sculpting portion of the work was done inside ZBrush and displacement maps were generated by way of the Multi-Map Exporter. Undoz incoporporated ZRemesher to handle some of the re-topology. Check out more cosmic travelers inside his user gallery.
