All About Striking A Pose In ZBrush

I made this series for the students at FIEA. It is all about posing your characters inside of ZBrush. First we look at how to use the transpose tools in ZBrush. Then we look at how to pose multiple pieces in ZBrush using TransposeMaster. Then we look at how we can create a skeleton in Maya, weight up our character, pose the character and then send all those results over to ZBrush via Maya so we can pose our high res character. The poses will be stored on layers inside of ZBrush.










Peace, NickZ. :)

FIEA PRE-VISUALIZATION PLANNING BOOK

FIEA PRE-VISUALIZATION  PLANNING BOOK


In PDF Format.

This book was complied by a student of mine, Jarrod Pope. We created the book to help aid in the process of building better art style guides for our capstone process here at FIEA.

The hope is that with more clearly defined art style guides, we will be able to build a more coherent art style throughout the duration of our capstone production time.

Heavy Demon Bust printed with the formlabs 1 + Printer.



















This was printed at 50 microns. The sculpt is about 7 and 1/4 inches tall from base to the tip of the horn.

Made this with Corel Painter for Mobile on a Wacom Cintiq Companion Hybrid. Pretty cool version of Painter.

My daughter and her friends asked me to draw them some monsters. I have an old Wacom companion hybrid at home so I was looking for something to draw...it took me some time using Sketchbook Pro for Android to find the right settings so I could actually draw...but now I'm really starting to have fun and I can control the line work! Now I really want to take the Companion 2 for a test drive.
