    Post Modeling wip: ZSphere Dragon (ZSphere model added July 12, 2004)

    Hi
    Here is a wip of a dragon model. The ZSphere mesh is currently at a very early stage and is yet to be refined and detailed.

    Next stage will include a refinement of the base mesh and the addition of high-resolution details.

    Tip: Before posing a ZSphere model, you should store its base-pose as a morph target. By doing so, you instruct ZBrush to transform the morph target to fit the new-pose instead of recalculating a new mesh. This allows the posed-mesh to retain the same polygons count and UV mapping as the original pose (also important if you intend to reuse the same texture across multiple poses)

    Feel free to join this thread with your dragon-like ZSpheres.

    Great model Pix. And this model was done in an hour!

    This is my unfinished dragon from the speed modeling challenge at cgtalk. It's not finished because I ran out of time. 4 hours modeling.

    If somebody wants a model for detailing you can have one of my older models from this thread.

    great job, as usual, Pixolator. I especially like how it looks with it's low polycount mesh.
    From the images you posted, can you tell us the polygon and vertex count?
