EXTREME realism - Bones surface modeling


Hello everyone!

Let us now contribute for the sake of zbrushing!! :smiley:

So far I have failed to find extremely realistic bones modeling. I have searched 1. Youtube 2. forums 3. google…

It seems to me that no gurus have done this. Weird?!

There are a whole lot of EXTREME realism >>> skin examples. But what about bones?

Now let us share our best works and best links and sources so hopefully this thread is useful for people since this is such a common topic, skeleton, dead skeleton and etc etc…In games, in movies, everywhere…

So this is so far the most realistic I’ve found: https://youtu.be/Hkpquhb23cI

Sadly it is neither zbrush nor very realistic.

So my dear gurus, tell us your experiences or assumptions.


Procedural or image based? PBR or fora specific engine? I remember that I’ve seen the most astonishing bones render here http://www.cgfeedback.com/cgfeedback/showthread.php?t=4876&page=37 . It’s quite an old thread but for sure you will gain lot of knowledge reading it.
P.S.: since now there is an answer I’ve deleted the other thread .
