Fantastic creation. With this and the last work you showed here you sure do got my interest way up on Z-Brush.
A couple questions I have: Does DXF exporting to 3D Max work OK? I have had problems in the past with DXF exports to Max.
Also do these heads come with Z-Brush?

Are they some kind of speacial primitives with Z-Brush?

Well your work is great.I have studied Z-Brush's site due to your great work. Just neeed you to convince me a bit more. I like Max but wonder if the two can go well together. Thanks for the art and any help or advice.:thumbsup:

My friend, you are the best advertisement for ZBrush. I was never interested in it before seeing your work

I'm gonna cruise over to the site right this instant and grab that demo


12-11-2002, 03:15 AM
Absolutely! If they havn't already sponsored you!
I love your work, again the 2d beauty of your composition is outstanding. Superb modelling and texturing. I really wanna have a play with that programme.
How long does it take you to create an image of that quality?
please keep posting!

yes realy cool what you do

12-11-2002, 10:10 AM
HellRender : The image you see in its present state is 2.5 D.

Kurtzar:The models in your image are all created with a 3D sphere primitive.
The link below will answer you other two questions .bud.

Fraggle fart : The image took around 15 hours to complete .

Thankyou for your inspiring comments .

I like the sort of " insanity " of this pic, it makes me think of Ranxerox :beer:

12-11-2002, 06:54 PM
I'll add to the praise, I think this is really good. One image that makes you want to know the whole story.

12-11-2002, 07:08 PM
wow! that is one great image :) have any of you heard the song "Computer Love" by Zapp & Roger? would really go well with this piece. lol. keep up the good work.

12-11-2002, 07:43 PM
Beautiful, all I can say about this peice and your earlier peice. Whatever your doing with Z brush keep it up.

*I too agree, Zbrush should get you on their staff....NOW!

...I look forward to more!

12-11-2002, 07:55 PM
I just noticed that most Zbrush work ive seen is always looking right face on and it seems a bit boring...

12-11-2002, 09:45 PM
ARRay : I have'nt heard the Zapper song ,but I'll keep my eye
out for it ,cheers :surprised
Bitmap : If your refering to animation I've posted a link for you

You have a sick mind :P

12-12-2002, 12:27 AM
that thing is pretty sick...however, the instant I saw it "zbrush" poped into my mind as to the app. Can it be used to make a more 3D "look" as opposed to just things that look like drawings?

12-12-2002, 12:51 AM
Hi ,
Thanks for the 2nd Award Lildragon ,much appreciate .

gigatron : Don't worry ,Its rapped up in a blanket with hot water bottle :buttrock:

Excellent Image Stevie. Pixologic should start giving you commisions. Congratulations on the awards.
The Magic Pen: You would be surprised at the kind of stuff that people have been creating with that "bizarro program"

12-12-2002, 05:47 AM

12-12-2002, 06:47 AM
hmmmmmm........ I dont know :surprised

:airguitar :drool:

12-12-2002, 06:59 AM
Very nice indeed - God lives in the details!

12-12-2002, 07:22 AM
i really like your work here Stevie-rae. a really dark feel to such a colorful piece.Great modelling and use of colors, it totally threw me off, i thought it was 2d! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

12-12-2002, 07:42 AM
Brilliant! Great style, disturbing yes, but what else could there be? Hats off!

12-12-2002, 09:44 AM
I really don't get Z-Brush, guys! Is this image 2.5D or what? I mean, like have you modelled it and you can turn it around and all too or do you have to stick with one POV because its the only side you painted on?

Carl :beer:

12-12-2002, 10:06 AM
Hi Carl,
This image was created in 3D ,then dropped to a canvas and turned into 2.5D .This retains lighting,depth , orientation,ect.
You dont have to drop the modeling to the canvas as you will see in the link below.
Also Pixologic are incoporating animation in there next version 1.6

Outstanding piece of work, I have been very impressed by the Quality of work produced with Z-Brush. Obviously mainly by the talent of the artists but it is just as evident that the package is providing some very proffesional tools.

Well done, keep 'em comming :)

12-12-2002, 02:43 PM
I agree with AshmisT and others. This piece has finally gotten me to serious look at the potential of ZBrush. As for the work its self its spectacular, the details in the texturing is superb and I love the full metallicy look.

12-12-2002, 03:46 PM
I also gave a try to the zbrush demo.
But then again its the artist that is so good, not the software.
I still prefer to model with lw, or even max and have mutch less polygons so the model is fit for animation.
i'm sure this artist can get the same results in lw or max or maya or whatever...:bounce: :eek: :buttrock: :applause:

12-12-2002, 06:08 PM
Hi Pensart ,
In the new demo comming out ,there's displacement
mapping for low poly modeling ,and in the next upgrade 1.6
there be animation also .I've posted some links.

12-12-2002, 06:39 PM
Stevie-rae, is it just me or do these high detailed things in Z-Brush get done as REAL quick or something? I mean, 15 hours? And I've seen other things that under GI would look like plaster statuettes! Whats the catch? :bounce:

Carl :beer:

12-12-2002, 09:42 PM
Hi Carl ,
Here's a link of a low poly model that would of taken
around 4 hours to create .Here people are testing the model for txt mapping to other apps such as Lightwave and C4d ,then
it can be animated , ect.

More good work from a zBrush user! SOme of the artists that are using this software are astounding. There seem to be a ton of people that use this software, due to the low price, and lesser involvement as compared to normal 3d packages.

12-14-2002, 11:50 PM
wow... it doesn't even look 3D. Very cool

07-30-2003, 12:02 AM
that's sick!
I love it!! :drool:
