“I put this series of videos together on design sketching in ZBrush because I’ve had a number of requests from friends and professionals who ask me where they can go for a design tutorial in ZBrush. They see sculpting in ZBrush as a huge conceptual design opportunity. I hope viewers will find these videos useful and learn from my own experiments.” – David Bentley

Racing into the past has never been easier. ZBrushCentral artist Daniel McKay knows this better than most, as he showcases his latest hard surface model. This one harkens back to the days when open wheel racing was more dangerous than tight rope walking. This latest piece is inspired by British Racing Motors Mark 1 formula one race car of the 1950’s.
The entire car was “built” inside ZBrush and begun by using primitives and Dynamesh. Daniel was able to arrive at the finish line by using features like Insert meshes, Clipping brushes and Panel Loops to name a few. Visit his blog to see more work from this talented ZBrushCentral.

We would like to extend a warm welcome to Guy Labbe, our newest member of the Turntable Gallery. Working from the front wheel back, Guy improvised as he went using the Shadow Box function. With the freedom to create as he went, the tricycle began to take shape. The end result is pretty fantastic and we can’t wait to see what he comes up with next!
