Happy New Year!

For those of you curious about the new Transparent Creatures tutorial available now, here's a trailer to wet your appetite!



This tutorial will show you how I am able to start without an idea, and quickly render a creature to completion featuring transparent skin layers and organic forms. Sculpting the design from a sphere in ZBrush, I spend my time building up a foundation of anatomy and surface details. Working with Subtools to build out additional organic parts such as teeth, eyes, and organs. I discuss how I work with Polypaint to create convincing skin textures, and how I adjust my render settings in ZBrush to produce my final images. Finally, I share how to composite your renders in Photoshop, preparing the creature for final presentation.

When sculpting or drawing. do you rest your wrist on the surface of the tablet? or do you draw using your shoulder and elbow movements? or use both?.

I have learned allot from you, especially from you're intro to sculpting video, it really clicks with me as a zbrush artist in training.

Just a example of the stuff im learning from you're gumroad tutorials. its really helping me understand sculpting in whole new ways.
