The Marx Brothers.
This sculpt is based on a plaster lamp base I once owned. I found photos on line and sculpted it as a 'totem pole' exercise along with my students, who were sculpting their totem pole designs from another class.
Another Cert course exercise.
The delightful Hugh Laurie. This was a demonstration in class of sculpting a portrait.
I took up ZBrush in order to teach it as part of the animation and concept art courses at Tafe. I do not profess to being a ZBrush expert or specialist. I do confess to a strong passion for sculpture, one that I discovered in high school, and was somewhat impractical in my itinerant life.
The examples are projects I worked on in class, alongside my students, as well as projects done for personal development as part of the ZBrush Workshops run by Ryan Kingslien.
Baby T-Rex - a character pose exercise done while doing the ZBrush Cert course. The goggles were done exploring the brand-new Modeller features.
ZBrush Cert course exercise - a quick dynamic maquette pose. I unleashed my inner dancer.
This is a ZBrush replica of a maquette I sculpted while working at Disney Australia. It is a model of Ariel's daughter Melody. The studio made several acrylic casts from my original Super Sculpey model for the animators to use as reference.
