New Brush Sets!

I have just released 3 new sets of brushes. First is the new stroke brushes! These are stylized stroke brushes. They work very well with terrain sculpting and detailing. Second is the new terra brushes! I used these on a recent terrain sculpt project. Now they are yours! :) Lastly, I finally created brushes out of the stitch alphas. For those that did not know how to use them. They might need a little adjusting for your needs, but they are ready for use.

New Premium Mech Set 2!

Now available! My first set of Premium brushes. Do not fear though, not all brushes are going to cost you from now on. These brushes took a long time to make and are well worth the $2.00. More free brushes coming soon! I am now working on another set to follow these that will be free! Enjoy!

New Brushes! Mech Insert Set 1

New Set of Brushes are now available! I have created some long awaited Mech Insert Brushes! Sorry these took quite a while to create. I am still in the process of making the stitch brushes. I just ran into a snag along the way. Stop on by and grab these new brushes. They work fantastic as additive or subtractive brushes. I hope everyone enjoys these new brushes. Leave some feedback on my blog or one of the forums posted! :) And please follow me on twitter or my blog so you know when I post new brushes.

      • Rendering with gradient ramp
    • Photoshop - Pipeline
      • From a texture
      • Handpainting an alpha (techniques)
      • Using Crazybump!
  • Importing into Zbrush
  • Brush Settings
    • Overview of what some settings do.
    • Types of brushes
  • Icon Creation
  • Exporting
I am far from an expert, but this will be my workflow! :)

Shanghai Garden W.I.P.

Here is my pet project I have been working on in my spare time. It has taken me a while, but it has been a blast working on.

Here is a closeup of the door. Still some work to do here as well as some erosion.

Closeup of the dragon head. I still have to sculpt the hands which you can see the lowpoly mesh below.

Here is the beginning of my concept layout. This is just a concept. It might change. I am thinking the left side will be another rock garden coming out at the camera.

Here is my reference sheet. :) 

Hope you like it! It may take me forever to finish, but I think it's headed in a good direction! :) Comments and Crits welcome!

Blog Up and Running!

So I finally got my blog up and running! Here you can follow my Zbrush Brush progess! I will also be posting work in progress from my portfolio and possibly some ramblings. So who knows! If you want to know first about any of my brushes subscribe to my RSS or you can check any of the forums posted on my website. I always update them immediately when I post new brushes. Currently I am in the process of making some really awesome clothing brushes such as; seems, stitches, stitch holes, buttons, zippers, etc... So look for these soon. I will also be making some premium brushes that will be for purchase, but I am telling you now, they will totally be worth it. I will include the source files with the premium brushes. I will continue to make freebies, so no worries there :) I love giving to the community. I think that's what keeps us going and growing! Share the knowledge!
