Go In Depth with...ZRemesher 3.0 - DetectEdges
Let's familiarize ourselves a little better with ZRemesher's DetectEdges functionality. In this Lesson example, we'll take a gear model that has a triangulated mesh with no PolyGroups or no mesh ID, but has edges to help utilize the DetectEdges function. Once DetectEdges is activated, we can convert our mesh to quad based geometry, create PolyGroups, and most importantly retain our clean or hard edges. This function can assist with future mesh editing including Dividing and sculpting or features that utilize PolyGroups.

    Very well done and inspiring. Pity it is that small and also that you tend to disrupt the vieing pleasure with stamping your personal data all over the work. Your style is so personal that a single mentioning would suffice. But of course you are free to...

    Thanks very much, I'm glad you like it. Unfortunately the watermarking is necessary, as I've had my work stolen in the past. Being unique or individual is no insurance that individuals will respect a copyright.

Violet Corals. Everything is rendered in zbrush, with a bit of postwork in photoshop. I resurrected the old "ivy generator" made by Thomas Luft and figured out how to make it communicate with zbrush. And here is an enlarged segment so you can see some of the details more clearly.

    Aaaah yes, and of course you can multi stack nanomesh indexes. A fascinating road of discovery and possibilities awaits

    It's amazing to me what this ivy generator can do, and my image doesn't even do it justice. I love the fact that it can be harnessed to do other things. I have some remarkable little tests that I plan to post sometime soon.

Anisoptera
My "little" dragonfly, created entirely with Zbrush. A great deal of trial and time went into this one, and I learned so much!. I have a new fascination and respect for these fierce little creatures; the further I got into this project, the more I realized I couldn't cut corners or stop short. The wings were a particular challenge, and required many attempts... each wing was meticulously constructed one vein and cell at a time; rather than being 2D planar elements, the wings are fully realized three-dimensional models. The compound eyes are made of 24,000 components. I'll post another image sometime to show how the legs, head and wings move freely. I made allowances to animate this model in the future. The anatomy may not be perfect, but it contains elements of truth and detail that startle me nonetheless. For me, drawing is a process that ocurrs mainly in the mind; it requires a conception and awareness that goes beyond "mere" reproduction. Coordinating images in the mind is as important as coordinating the hand with the brain. Uniting those faculties in images like these gives me a great sense of accomplishment. In addition, it opens the door to increasingly difficult challenges.
