    Did I miss the shaders? I've been following several people who were developing the novel style. This one really does blow the rest out of the water!

    Video A short Zbrush Animation Movie

    Oh my - seems I haven posted anything here for about 3 years. Time runs so fast these days. What a shame. But I did keep lurking
    Anyway, I haven't done an awful lot of Zbrushing lately, but one thing I have just done might be worth showing, because it is actually a whole short animation movie done in Zbrush.
    I don't think there are many out there

    Basically anything that moves in that scene was animated with Zbrush's timeline. Only some post processing and 'cutting&editing' was done in Photoshop and Fillmore.
    Initially I all wanted to do was a quick Gif animation, but then it all started to expand and I found myself even doing a soundtrack. Way more hours went into this than I had intended. Mind you I am not an animator anything along hat line. This is the first time I ever attempted something like this.
    It simply had occupied my mind and emotions a lot and I needed to vent and get it out. There was a brief idea and that I always wanted to to see how much animation I could get out of Zbrush.
    It's not easy and there are lots of limitations, but that was somehow the 'fun' of it. I always loved Stretching and "abusing" Zbrush. It does have some advantages too though, like being able to work with high res models and the render speed.

    Anyway - too much talking, too little showing. Here it is - sad, short but unfortunately too often true little Zbrush movie. Dedicated to any victims of war anywhere on this planet.

    Glad to be the first to comment your recently posted artwork.

    Default The Promised Toonshader

    Browsing through this old thread I noticed that my last post 3 years ago was a promise to post my Toon Shader.
    Since I won't be hanging around here a lot in the foreseeable future either, I decided it's now or never and finally fulfil my promise.
    I had to update and tweak them again for the current Zbrush version. So here they are (Link) very very late but finally, even though I doubt anybody still cares

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3X...ew?usp=sharing

    There is an empty ZPR file included hat should contain the render settings and a simple light setup I used for these shots. Play around with the render filter settings to get various degrees of posterization on top of the shader.
    I also post some sample renders. What you see is pure and straight Zbrush renders with no touching up in Photoshop (except for adding the font in some)


    Have fun and happy new year

    "seems I haven posted anything here for about 3 years" ~ Seems like yesterday, where does time dissolve to!

    Hey Julian, I've for a long time very much enjoyed your posts, though I didn't register on here until only a few years ago, even though I've lurked on this amazing forum for about 6 years.

    It's great to see you return, and I remember the day you promised to release your Toon Shader as I had watched what you were doing with it and the fantastic results.
    So huge thanks you for sharing this with us

    Your short movie is quite powerful in it's theme, and sadly an all too often occurance on this planet. The direct result of too many sociopaths in positions of power.
    The animation is very well executed, and I'd love to know your procedure for doing this in Zbrush.


    Cheers & Have a Brilliant 2016 ~ Bang3rs

    Thanks a lot guys. Glad if it's still of use for somebody

    There are 2 things I forgot -

    1.: The Toonshader for the Eyes ( makes them pop a bit more and has glow if needed) Get it here https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3X...ew?usp=sharing

    2: In addition to the BPR render, ypu should also play with the old 'Best Render' for some nice results. Best Render works just as fine with this shader, but gives you different tweak options and results for the shadow/light interaction and you have the option of using a glow shader slot, which I used here for the eyes.

    Furthermore you cancombine both worlds and make a BPR render on top of a 'Best Render'

    Have a look at some sample renders and setting below.

    Cheers and a very happy new year to all !
