Submarine by postapocalypsia Submarine by postapocalypsia
I am teaching myself to use ZBrush. This is one of my recent creations relating to an idea I have for a childrens' story.
The water effect was just a bit of photoshop dodge on the ZBrush render

Did you not do some children's books?
If not, you might want to submit some ideas to a publisher.

I am working on an idea now - bit early to show anything yet, but it is full of my style of foolishness. :)

You have a great style of foolishness with just the right amount of professional polish! :nod:

Hi! 
Zbrush is a great 3D modelling program, but has limited use for animation and lighting setup - mind you, I only have my trainer wheels on!
I am no master of Photoshop either, but I used it here just to sweeten up the watery look.
Thanks for the feedback - much appreciated :)

Oh I know. The thing is that I've worked painting backgrounds for 2D animation and now it seems everything "must" be 3D so I am getting a feeling that I should learn those programs or try to find another job heh.

I wonder sometimes if we may end up with an over- saturation of 3d perfection...when I see handmade animation like Miyazaki's or stop motion like ParaNorman, it seems like there is great opportunity for individual talent or vision to shine through away from purely digital animation.
I started Zbrush because I have too many wacky ideas and concepts in my head and it seemed like the perfect way to make them happen, but most of my sculpting and painting has been physical.
I sometimes wonder what would happen if we had to create something on the computer without CNTRL-Z to bail us out...I think that may be the  biggest difference between the way we approach physical and digital art.
Sorry to get all philosophical like that!
Thanks for your feedback, and all the best with your animation work :)

I am already saturated by 3D "perfection" even as a watcher. But that's just me heh.

It is very possible that I won´t work in animation anymore, (after my 4 movies, now it seems there's no work here in Mexico due to outsourcing and abusing people already hired).

I get the feeling that in the future (maybe not so distant) handmade stuff will be more valuable, so I am now redirecting my efforts to childrens' books and other stuff that looks cooler when it's done in the physical world.
