    Shadow Over Innsmouth

    This is my first ZBrush attempt. It's my take on those fish people from H. P. Lovecraft's, "The Shadow Over Innsmouth".

    I made the base mesh for all elements in Maya.

    On a side note, I have a technical qquestion. This was made on a new Dell 720 with Windows Vista. I had some problems getting ZBrush installed on the computer with Vista.

    As you can see, the outline of the tool appears crenelated or pixalated. Also, the thin spines (subtools) appear broken. I have played with the document size and Max compact Mem, but I can't figure a way to correct this. Does anyone know if this is something to do with Vista as an OS, and if it can be corrected?

    The full computer specs:
    Intel Core™2 Q6600 Quad-Core (8MB L2 cache,2.4GHz,1066FSB)

    2GB Corsair Dominator DDR2 SDRAM 800MHz OC'd to 1066MHz-2

    256MB nVidia GeForce 8600

    320GB - Seagate 7200RPM, SATA 3.0Gb/s, 16MB Cache341-3764

    Nice and creepy looking! Fitting for Lovecraft.

    Hard to tell, but I think those pixely edges are normal. Working at actual size, edges aren't antialiased in ZBrush. If you want to see an antialiased view, you can click the 'AAHalf' button, which will show you a 50% view of your doc.

    The aliased edges can actually be helpful when rendering out for postwork--they make selections a breeze.

    Congrats - the creatures are really something fresh for the eyes - pretty different from what people are used to see.

    Default A new concept character -- The Last man

    Here's a new concept character I've been working on. I wanted to juxtapose human anatomy with some techno. I am now doing a paint up of him which I'll post in a couple of days. This is the first time I've used ZBrush for Hard surface work. All the hard surface elements are sculpted simple shapes -- mostly spheroids made of quads.
