    Default The THING that should not BEE

    Hello community

    This is one idea I had for the halloween 2011 comp, basically your average worker bee who after stinging someone (normally fatal for your average bee) does not die but instead becomes unliving, one of the class of undead known as....Zombees!

    *ahem* Anyway hope I have the time to commit to this before the deadline, crits welcome

    Interesting concept! Maybe the story should be that it stings an actual Zombie, which in turn, causes itself to be infected as well? Just a thought. Should be a fun one.

    The concept is very funny! ...
    although, to tell the truth, it's a bit un-Bee-lievable

    Zwolf - Thanks Dave, and I like that idea, fits better, cheers

    Guti - Cheers dude, gave me a buzz

    Very quick rough using the fan-tastic new tools in R2, still stunned at how easy it is to sketch things out in Zbrush now. Awesome.

    Love the idea and the concept drawing! No crits from me; anyone who's brave enough to present that pun to the community won't get any waspish remarks from me!

    Default Fuzz Test

    Small update, playing with the awesome array of controls with the bpr filters and also the fiber material to see if i could make a workable bee fuzz. Keep getting distracted by shiny new things in R2 and not doing any actual scultping/modeling etc

    All Zbrush, no photoshop.

    Hahaha! There is something so appealing about that image! It reminds me of BoozyFloozy's art; and I hope you'll take that as the huge compliment it is intended to beee.

    Rory : Thanks very much, I know of Boozyfloozys work and like his style alot, so I take that as a huge compliment

    Aspen: Thanks for stopping by

    Heres where we are so far....few more things to add and then try out some fuzz (either material or scultped, not sure which) plus Im not convinced by the base addition which I thought I could make into a bottletop perhaps but am rapidly running out of time! eek.

    A bottletop as pedestal is a great idea!
    I love the big props and the head of this last pic: very very very nice!

    Cheers for the support guys, am hoping to get it all done tonight, all things being well.

    Quick question for anyone passing, is the deadline 12am GMT or U.S time?
