Zbrush is one of those software apps I absolutely love. I first encountered it wayyyy back in the early 2000’s or something at a WWDC SF. It was sorta new at the time but was doing crazy things with organic 3D sculpting no one had ever heard of. I was hooked.
It’s come a long way since then (although the interface is still as bizarre as ever). Over the years I’ve poked around in it and watched it develop. I don’t consider myself a master by any means, but as someone who loves design and 3D and now app development, it’s a tool that’s hard to ignore.
So recently I gave myself a learning challenge to dive in deeper. The challenge? Recreate the infamous rage comic “Forever Alone” as a 3D rendering.
His face is just perfect for modeling, wouldn’t you agree?
Here is the final result (click to enlarge). Stay tuned for a behind-the-scenes recap of how it was made!
