Tarzan is a fictional character, an archetypal feral child raised in the African jungles by the Mangani "great apes"; he later experiences civilization only to largely reject it and return to the wild as a heroic adventurer. Created by Edgar Rice Burroughs, Tarzan first appeared in the novel Tarzan of the Apes (magazine publication 1912, book publication 1914), and then in twenty-five sequels, three authorized books by other authors, and innumerable works in other media, authorized and not.

Africa has been and is a land of warriors, wild and vast , rich and full of life in the same proportion as death and misery.
There have been many cultures that have built great empires on the black continent. Some as well-known as the Egyptian and others whose traces have been erased by their enemies, such as the great Carthage. But Africa hides more, much more, lost and unknown great empires.
This character is based on one of these cultures that has disappeared and that is why he honors its place in the history of Africa.
For the creation of this character, I used the ZSpheres to create the basic mesh. From here I started to model all of the details. To paint the model, I used the Spotlight in which you use different pictures to give a more realistic hue to the skin and photoshop. I then made a retopology and used the UV Master to create the textures to be able to use GOZ in 3D Max and make a rig. So, I was able to give the character its current warrior pose and make a small animation.
THOUGHTS ON ZBRUSH
I started with ZBrush about 2 years ago and since then I have not stopped creating and creating characters for my ZBrush. For me, ZBrush is the most powerful tool to quickly create 3D characters. Also, it is one of the most recognized software programs worldwide and is quite intuitive and easy to learn. Plus, the plugins make your life easier.
