Thanks again for the kind words everyone!

Rofideo: Face expressions are done in zbrush. Any other motion, like the eyes, is done in max through a simple rig.

MattQ: Thanks! It's a pretty simple zbrush workflow. I start out with any low geometry shape(cube in this case), subdivide it twice, and push and pull with move brush until I get a nice looking base shape. I subdivide two more times and work on it some more with the standard/move brush. When it looks decent enough, I subdivide two or three more times and start working on the details using standard/dam standard brushes.. Once it starts looking the way I want it to, I begin retopologizing the model and eventually reproject it back to the highpoly zbrush model. Hopefully this answers your question.

Imageshack is giving me some problems today. Hopefully this upload was successful. Here's Scared ... drunk, angry and sad.

Surprised(more awestruck than scared surprised) and a new pleased. The first pleased looked more like enjoyment. Two more to go.

Awesome work! Glad to see that you got enough time to finish. 2 more to go is great! Power through, lookin forward to seeing your final entry.
  06 June 2009
Thanks TiMrozek. Glad to see you finished yours. Your rage looks great, although sad is still my favorite
  06 June 2009
Thank You as well! Yeah, it's nice to finish something I started. Doesn't always happen. Yeah, Rage is fun but Sad just looks so odd and intense on this monkey. Hmm, not sure which of yours is my favorite. I love pleased, such a funny scheming pleased. Whatever is making her pleased has sinister roots.

These are looking so amazing it's crazy. She is so expressive. i laughed the hardest at drunk, but so far tired is my favorite. Can't wait to see the last 2.
