On Friday night, I was asked by step son's school to do some face painting for the schools "Family Fun Night." My wife asked her friend Chrissy White (Ringling Alumni) to help out with painting. So she and I sent out to paint the town red... well at least some of the kids faces that is. (I did get to do 2 Spidey faces!!! Woot woot!)
I had so much fun painting faces that I volunteered to paint faces at a neighborhood kids birthday party at our neighborhood pool. I had a lot of fun and I got to take some photos from the days painting session.
Hope you enjoy as much as I did.

This is a tutorial that I built that will show you how you can use Zspheres inside of ZBrush to build some simple geometry and then take that geometry and sculpt it into a final sculpt. At the end of the video (Last 9 min.) I put things into a time -lapse mode to finish out the sculpt.

This is a time lapse move that I created from a ZBrush session. I started with some ZSpheres, created some geometry and then started sculpted that into the final model of Spidey.
This video is a time - lapse movie of the entire session. This is about 3 hours worth of work condensed into about 9 minutes.

Here is a concept that I drew a while back of an underwater aquatic creature. When I lived in San Diego I would go to the tide pools in La Jolla and I was fascinated with all the cool crabs that were crawling around. I drew quite a few creatures that were crab related. I think I drew this guy after a night at Red Lobster. :)
Hope you enjoy - NickZ. :)

This was the first time that I creaed a model from a sphere. I then added some music and produced the final movie file in Adobe After Effects.
made with the new ZBrush

In this video we will take a look at how we can take a model from ZBrush, export this out as an OBJ, bring that into Maya and resurface that mesh. (3D tracing) This will give us good edge flow an topological layout for our model. We can then use this video (Click Here To Watch) to learn how to capture all the detail and color from our original sculpt.
Peace - NickZ. :)
In this tutorial we will take a look at a scenario where we have a hi resolution mesh that is sculpted into the shape that we would like, but we have resurfaced this mesh in another program (such as Maya) and we would like our new topology to have the same shape and color as our original sculpt. To achieve this we will be using the project all button in the sub tool section.

This video is how to use the Mesh Insert Tool inside of ZBrush 3.0. This tool will alow you to take multiple meshes and combine them into one mesh.
