I’m working on 2 fan arts. Both started in zbrush and only one has been moved to blender. I am a better sculptor when it comes to 3D. I can see to do everything but the face in Blender. Yesterday I took my model to topogun for retopology but it didn’t export correctly and the work I’d spent a few hours on was lost. Fortunately I found a video on how to do retopo inside blender and it worked great. Better than it use to so I managed to recover most of what I had done fairly quickly. At first I had the intentions of animating but now my only interest is posing for artistic rendering.
The only parts I’m not looking forward to is the hair and clothing and even the eyes. I’ve always found anime eyes in 3D to be quite difficult. I won’t say who the fan art is of yet but I will be posting WIP’s along the way. Stay tuned!
I upgraded as soon as I found out that the latest Zbrush 4R7 was released and it is certainly worth all the fuss.
Previously, I had avoided any and all media during it’s pre-release incase I got too excited and ended up disappointed when I got it and I am glad I stayed away. Especially concerning a lot of the fan backlash that I still don’t agree with. I simply love it and it’s new features.
Anyway the day yesterday in zbrush I worked on getting use to the new box modelling. I felt stupid because I haven’t used it in months and I couldn’t remember how to smooth so I thought I would mention here for anyone new to zbrush or has forgotten like me, use the Deformation sub palette and use Relax on your box modelling work.
But I am so use to modelling in Blender that I switched to blender as usual and ended up importing my base mesh to play around with. I played around mostly and didn’t save anything. I also got reaquainted with skinning in zbrush.
I made a simple female face and exported it as an obj but I ended up doing nothing with it.
Today I only painted since I’m unwell but I hope to sculpt something. I have found that I can record my progress without crashing now thanks to the 64bit version. So hopefully I will have videos to go with tomorrows post
