Another one of my courses just went up over at Digital Tutors!

This one is all about Retopping a high-res mesh in 3D-Coat, then UVing in 3D-Coat, then transferring maps in Topogun.

Take a look and let me know what you think :)

My New Zbrush Course @ Digital Tutors

Hello everyone,

My first course just went live over at Digital Tutors! Some of you have been asking how I create my digital sculpts, so I thought I'd make a tutorial to show you. You can find it here.

Original concept by: Dean Yeagle

I'd love to hear any input, or any course suggestions for the future.

Dino Lunch Crunch

Today's Lunch Crunch I dedicate to my Dad for his Birthday! Happy Birthday Dad! The original concept was done by the amazing Kevin Keele. This one took about 4 hours.

The file was getting huge, so I had to pause the time-lapse while I worked the mask for the scales. Also, I forgot to record the teeth process. Those are just molded spheres.

Follow this link to see a high-res time-lapse -->

Today's LunchCrunch is a Giraffe. This one was a blast to sculpt! Took about two hours over a few days. Original Concept by Tod Harris.

If you follow the link over to Vimeo, you can watch it in highres.

Mark Behm Model

Finally another update!
I modeled this guy starting in Silo, and finished in Zbrush. Mark Behm was kind enough to give me permission to model this amazing painting. Thanks Mark!

Cartoon Heads Are Fun!


This one went quick since it's so simple. About an hour's worth. 
I'm having a blast with these. 
I don't know what it is about Dean Yeagle's drawings.. they beg to be modeled.

Head Number Four

Tried to add a bust. It's okay, but I'd like to make it less "chunky". Thanks again to Dean Yeagle for his design inspiration. I can't get enough of his stuff.

Dream Guardian

I'm loving Zbrush lately. After you get past the worst interface ever, it's very, very powerful... and fun. Anyway, here's my latest model. It's based off of another painting by Todd Harris.

Vulture WIP

Here's a cartoon Vulture I was playing around with. I'm not too happy with the coloring, and there's still a long ways to go with the overall design, but it's getting there.

Lion Door Knocker

I recently picked up a book to help me learn Zbrush. The first lesson is how to sculpt a lion door knocker. Here's my attempt.

Learning Zbrush 3

Greetings all! I'm back from the abyss! I've been learning Zbrush 3, and I have to say, what a fantastic program! I've done a few 3DToons to get the hang of it. Here's a Camel. Original design done by Mel Milton. I'm not quite happy with the colors yet, but it will come with time.

First things first... To be honest... I've gotten a little burnt out on the pinup thang (for now), so she's been put on hold for a short while. In the meantime, I wanted to have some characters of my own to animate. I've been modeling some new fun little cartoon Fairies that were designed by Todd Harris.

Hope you diggem,

My Attempt at Sir Loin

I've been super busy lately, so work on the pinup has slowed a bit. In the meantime, here's my attempt at modeling Todd Harris' Sir Loin character just for fun.
