PICTURE 1 scroll from an old architectural
magazine. PICTURE 2 zsphere armature to
build on. PICTURE 3 Zsketch armature.
Picture 3 Skin to sculpt on.
  • I found some architectural reference for this piece and scanned it into my computer.
  • Created a Zbrush armature using Zspheres
  • Drew on the Zshperes with Zsketch. I really like this feature of Zbrush 4 for the Mac
  • The skin of the piece is created from the Zsketch. This makes it easier for me to sculpt on.
  • The final sculpture is shown in two ways. The one with the black background is the final version
  • The final version with the white background is using something called Best Preview Render.
Above is the final version, below is the version before best possible render.

I am a perpetual teacher. I love to share. So here is information and some screen shots on the scroll. It is created in Zbrush4.
