WIP Naira Commission by BJPentecost WIP Naira Commission by BJPentecost
I haven't posted anything in so long because I have been busy working. However, I intend to take a break soon so there will be an influx of artwork. :3 As to what this is, it's a WIP commission for Naira. I sculpted up a basic idea in Zbrush, rendered it, and will paint over the final render. Total time spent so far.... probably about 6 hours. It's just supposed to be a way of getting basic lighting and pose so obviously it's kinda rough.

Also, I might clean up and refine the model, sculpt a base, and ship it off to Shapeways..... maybe.

Have you ever considered selling models on the DAZ3d or Renderosity marketplace? I imagine something like this could sell quite well there. Same with your newer anthro 3d dragon. Simply awesome looking stuff, and far better looking than any "anthro" model currently on those marketplaces.

Thanks. ^__^ I have actually considered it and I was working with someone towards that end but I think I pissed her off. I'm good at making things look nice in 3D but making them functional can be very difficult. XC I still haven't ruled out that possibility though. ^_^ I might try again someday, if I get the time.

Know exactly what you mean. Rigging models is something of an art itself!

I'd definitely pay money to be able to use high quality models like yours, and I think many others would too. If you do find the time--I know of someone who you could possibly work with for rigging the models.

You should get some of these things 3D printed and sold as figurines, they'd be incredible!

that is so amazing BJ *_* I am not worthy D:

Just out of curiosity, when you say you paint over the final render, do you mean you take a screenshot of the render and paint over the jpg. in photoshop or does zbrush actually let you paint over your 3D models?

Only 6 hours? To accomplish anything close to this in a sculpting application would take me 6 days. Well done to say the very least.

Looking beautiful! It would make for a pretty impressive sculpture. The more I've seen of what Shapeways and other 3D printers are capable of, the more impressed I am with them. I've seen one guy here that makes some really cool Portal-themed rings and other jewelry for geeks. :D

So to clarify just what Zbrush is. It's a digital sculpting program yes? That you paint on as if it were real? But everything takes place through digital media?

Zbrush is a digital sculpting program. The best way I can put it is like this: Photoshop is to painting what Zbrush is to clay sculpting. With my workflow, I will sometimes just go straight to painting but other times, I like to sculpt things up in Zbrush and then paint over a render.

This is absolutely stunning! I've been meaning to fool with Zbrush for a while now (not that I'd be even remotely as gifted as you...), and seeing this beautiful piece makes me wish I'd been practicing already. This is just so... gorgeous!

When I first heard about Zbrush from a friend, I was like.... nah. But he kept hounding me so I tried it. I wasn't able to do much with it at first and there were many times when I just gave up with it for months at a time. Now? Now it is my favorite program. I actually spent 700$ on a legit copy and OH GOD was it totally worth it!
