    Mate...this is very good. The atmosphere in black and white (imho) is the best. Love it al the way...for me this is worth 5*****
    Are there any ZBrush T-shirts? Black - XXL please

    Yeah, another nice one! I like the "grit/grain" of the black and white one, the second one feels a bit to clean/saturated. Maybe you could try to bring a bit of the colours into the b&w image. Not sure about the floating ground plane; takes away a bit of "the suspension of disbelief", like revealing the backside of a movieset. Anyways, great stuff! More, please .

    .... i must say that i like the first black and white image best, the material in the render brings out the forms stronger then in the second one...is the material matcap based ?....perhaps a fog with no alpha and/or image is better because the objects are strong on themselve .

    Thanks again for the comments.

    Jantim: the material in the B&W is one of the new shaded sketch ones, can't remember which. I think they are matcaps but lighting and shadows seem to work pretty well with them unlike some other matcaps I have played with.

    Etcher: I see what you are saying and I'm in two minds about the floating ground plane...

    On one hand I like how they mess with the suspension of disbelief, a little reminder that what you are looking at dosn't actually exist... and on the other hand I feel they need something more, maybe a full environment... But at the moment its not bugging me too much so I shall just see what develops as I continue having fun.

    Here's another. Title: "he pokes holes in plastic bags"

    (looking at them again, I think the contrast in the B&W image is a bit high. Might have another tinker when I have time)

    thanks again.

    these soft forms and armatures look great.....and i think you should use a bigger ground-plane that fades in a background fog, you could even use your own ground-plane and place that on the one that stretches into the foggy background .

    Awesome! I think I'm a fan! Maybe a detail, but I love the shades of the fog/clouds on the left corner of the ground plane in the color pic.

    Oi oi, its been a while. Just thought I'd drop in and post my latest zbrush creation.

    Slowly learning things, polypainting etc, seems to be taking forever!

    Let me know your thoughts if you got a couple of mins to spare

    cheers,

    thanks man.

    I probably should have put render details in the post with the image... all renders in zbrush then layered up in photoshop.

    Think I used basic material1 for shadows, then a sketch matcap and flat colour over that, possibly used one other layer but I can't remember what material that was.

    Wow, you mean your latest image above, the image called "monster 5 FINAL IMAGE .jpg" was rendered in Zbrush? Really good!

    Tell us about your lighting and how you achieved such a natural feel and those rich shadows.
