    Default WEBINAR RECAP: Array Mesh (Recap in Post 1)


    We are pleased to now share the video of our second ZBrush Webinar!
    Title: Don't Just Build It: Array Mesh It
    Date: April 27th, 2016
    Features Covered: Array Mesh (All Options) and using the TransPose Line with Array Mesh.

    The Array Mesh feature offers a unique instancing system that makes it possible for you to experiment with elaborate scenes while maintaining a low polygon count. Released as part of ZBrush 4R7, the Array mesh system can duplicate a single piece of geometry as many times as needed, and in boundless configurations. This workshop focused on how Array Mesh can be used to build elaborate landscapes, as well as for adding that last bit of detail to accessories, weapons and small props.

    Also, for those of you who missed the last webinar (or wish to see it again) it is available on video.

    Both Webinar's have been great and last nights one blew me away... I have been chasing after other hard surface solutions and have come to see that I have a jewel in my hands just have to play with it more often... time to open my eyes... and as someone suggested "let the webinar run the whole night"... can't wait for the online version as I was medicated due to flu and couldn't focus much...

    One has to think while designing as all the tools are there... think out of the box...

    Default Making a Dragon Tattoo

    Hello

    Here is a step-by-step of the dragon piece that I completed for the most recent ZBrush Webinar - Don't Just Build It, ArrayMesh It.

    This is a render with two lights and BasicMaterial2 selected.



    This is the final Tattoo render using BPR in ZBrush.



    Here is a little breakdown of how I made the scale.





    More steps in the next post.

    Ok now we need to convert what was created from ArrayMesh into an InsertMesh brush along a curve.

    Render Time.

    Here are the steps I did to get the render to look more like an illustration with the ZBrush BPR. I then used the image in Spotlight to apply it as a tattoo to a character.

    Below you will find a link to download a project with a cube in Edit Mode with all of my render settings used to render the dragon, enjoy.

    Thanks a lot Paul for that breakdown. Very much appreciated indeed.
    Looking forward to watching the webinar on YT. When it is the same quality as the first one, and I'm shure it will, all I can say is 'wow'...
