    Default Artist in Action: The Venus from the Rhone River

    Banner.jpg

    This is a making-of article showing a reconstruction made by Pixologic French team member Thomas Roussel. The project was of a Venus head found deep in the Rhone River, in Arles, a city located in France and famous for its old Roman elements. Since the statue's discovery, the Arles museum has performed much research into its original appearance, from the missing parts to the coloration. (Most people don't realize this, but traditional Greek sculpture was actually painted!) Additionally, this project has been documented for a TV broadcast aired on a prime time TV show on French national television, showing elements of ZBrush to more than 3.6 million viewers!

    Discover how ZBrush was used to work on the scan data of the head, rebuild the figure and finally paint it, in collaboration with the Arles museum and Eclectic Production / 2ASM.


    Be sure to also check out our many past interviews, which can be found in the ZBrush Artist Interviews forum and the User Stories page at the Pixologic website.

    That's great, thank you for sharing!

    I had a similar task lately, where I was asked to complete scan data. In my case the scan was missing the ears, back of the head, most of the hair and finally neck and shoulders. I was able to find the same workflow as Thomas here, which I find interesting after reading. ZBrush rocks. Thank you again aurick and Thomas. And to Ryan Kingsline for his kind advices... :-))

    Best
