With the excitement of the Electronic Entertainment Expo aka, E3 in the air, we’ve decided to take a closer look at the business of video games. With the dawn of the latest hardware comes increased graphics capability. What does that mean? More details! Where there’s more details, you’re sure to find more ZBrush. We’ll highlight how ZBrush is playing a role in bringing your favorite next gen titles to life, while at the same time giving you the “lowdown” on the hottest new games being unveiled at the conference. Mirror’s Edge carried with it a serious fan following. It’s no wonder that EA Digital Illusions CE (DICE) is bringing the franchise back for a second helping. Be sure to check out this behind the scenes, “making of” with the talented men and women at DICE for a glimpse of ZBrush in action. Here’s to the team that keeps us living on the edge!

Feast In A Fallen City

Stop-motion film making is a demanding art form. From the creation of “physical” sets and characters to the painstaking capture of movement, every scene demands attention to detail. The “Feast In A Fallen City” takes the time honored tradition of stop-motion film-making and gives it a jolt of modern technology. Using ZBrush and 3D printing technology to realize his designs, director Aron Bothman, a student at the California Institute of the Arts, took full advantage of everybody’s favorite “digital clay” while bringing his tale to life. Be sure to watch the “making of video” for a behind the scenes look at how it all came together.
