To say that Jean Giraud Moebius was an influential figure in the world of art is more than an understatement. The man virtually invented science fiction and the visual esthetic of the genre. The Turn Table Gallery has a new addition with this latest piece by ZBrushCentral member Fareed Dridi. The Arzack comic book served as the primary influence for this latest sculpture. Fareed used ZBrush to bring his own rendition of this timeless desert wanderer to life. The props and character were sculpted and polypainted inside ZBrush. Visit ZBrushCentral to see more of Fareed’s work inside his user gallery. You’ll also get a kick out of visiting the GFactory website, where more awesome ZBrush work is waiting for you.
