G-man_Ray Johnson: Marmoset Viewer

Finally got round to getting this guy in the viewer.  Had to crunch the textures right down to get the scene file under 15mb, but he holds up pretty well considering

Blade's Daughter - Game Art

Some fan art I've been chipping away at in my spare time, learning new PBR related stuff and general practice.
My take on a possible daughter of Blade, as though raised by the old man Whistler.
Rendered realtime in Marmoset Toolbag 2.

'G-man: Ray Johnson'

Recently finished chipping away at this guy.  Started out as a Zbrush sculpt a while back but thought it would be cool to work him up as a bit of game art.
Sculpted in Zbrush, retopo and UV's in 3ds max, Photoshop and Quixel for texturing.  Rendered realtime in Marmoset Toolbag 2

Pteroscent: 3D Artist Magazine

A creature I created from a sphere using Dynamesh in Zbrush. Polypainted and rendered using BPR in Zbrush, composited in photoshop.
Inspired by the amazing creature designs of Carlos Huante

My first step by step tutorial into the making of Pteroscent is featured in this months 3DArtist Magazine (Issue 43).  It covers the workflow I used to create the creature using Dynamesh in Zbrush, along with tips on Polypainting and Rendering using bpr.
Kind of wish I spent a bit more time on the final grab. I'd like to have got a bit more movement in it, but its all good practice I suppose.
Hope its a useful and interesting read.

There's a whole section on the great work of Carlos Huante, which is very cool.  Check it out ; )
