 Trading Card by Zoe Love Rare

Above: Concept sketches I did for a trading card game. The trading card seen above is still in its infancy.

Guidelines

•      Page size no larger than A4
•      Using only pen/pencil or ink
•      Scan sketch in at minimum 900DPI

After calibrating our new Samsung C1860FW printer we decided to test the prints on 900DPI  on200 g/m2 glossy cardboard which, we will increase to 380 g/mwhen the final set is complete.

ZBrush/Sculptris – Custom Materials

ZBrush - Sculptris - Custom Materials

Above: So I spent some time creating a few epic 500 x 500 pixel materials that can be used in either ZBrush or Sculptris. I created the materials based on my need for more than just the stock standard materials supplied with both software’s.

For example you will find a lot of creature skin and organic materials, like human flesh, hulk skin, lizard and amphibian skin sets.

Among the more synthetic materials you will find, batman style matte amour, steel, metal, bronze, aluminium, foil and various plastics.

For interest sake I had tested Sculptris on, Windows XP, Windows 7, and the new Windows 8, and I have found no major problems other that the random spontaneous crashing, however when I tested Sculptris on the 27″ imac (using Mountain Lion), the performance was shockingly poor, with an Unbearably low frame rate which makes the application unusable.

It is clear that the creators of Sculptris have left it in is crude and unfinished alpha state intentionally, in order to try promote the sale of its bigger brother ZBrush,

3D Alien Design - Sculptris - ZBrush - Zoe Love

Above: A quick mock-up for a four eyed alien, designed in Sculptris/Zbrush. I have no idea what I am going to do with my collection of monsters, but the hope is to one day have them feature in a video game or even a film.
