When we get hungry, we reach for a Snickers. It’s hard to deny the taste of smooth caramel and peanuts with a layer of nougat all wrapped in a chocolate coating. It makes “ZBrushing” that much more enjoyable and even faster! After all, you can’t survive on digital clay alone. Or can you? The latest Snickers advertising campaign sees a unique use of ZBrush come to life on the streets of Korea. Recently, an interactive advertising campaign popped up and put a “zombie” twist on satisfying hunger. Watch ZBrush artist Gio Nakpil and a talented team of digital effects artists scare some unsuspecting commuters. Visit Gio’s user gallery inside ZBSee for a closer look at this ZBrusher’s process.

The studio that had you “tap-tap-tapping” away in the seminal hit “Rock Band”, recently secured crowd funding for a reboot of the Amplitude franchise. Harmonix knocked this one outta the stratosphere and secured enough “greenbacks” to keep fans of the PlayStation 2 hit driving forward in pure rhythmic style!

The team of Masters and Munn lay the foundation for what could invariably be the shape of things to come in the world of traditional sculpture. Using ZBrush to design the feathers for this divine creature takes a progressive approach at propelling classical figurative art into the digital age.  Each feather is sculpted using ZBrush and brought to life by way of 3D printing. Once the feathers are printed, a copper plating process is incorporated. We’ll take one! Be sure to see more cutting edge sculptural works from this dynamic duo by visiting their website.

Visit ZClassroom for video tutorials highlighting features like FiberMesh and MicroMesh. You’ll be one step closer to designing your very own “winged wonders”.

Please join the Pixologic team in welcoming our newest member to the Turntable Gallery, Lucas Cuenca (aka lucasvv8 at ZBC)! His latest work, Alduin, was done for a Sony PS4 commercial that aired in the UK. Check out the video below. He did all the modeling and texturing in ZBrush!

The other turntable Lucas provided is for the character Green Arrow. After playing around with a sphere for 30 minutes he came up with an archer character and went from there.

Attributing ZBrush to why he started working in VFX, Lucas says it’s “the most artistic tool. It’s great for designing all kinds of creatures, characters, environments, mech and props. With ZBrush, designing and creating is just beautiful!”

See Lucas’s artwork in the round at the Turntable Gallery and view more at his user gallery at ZBrushCentral.

And of course, the PS4 commercial (the dragon appears at :22 to the right).
