    Wow, just wow.
    The detail you put into these images really sells them. Gorgeous, beautiful detail.
    That image of the beast is absolutely amazing. It forced my jaw to the floor.
    How long did it take you to complete that last piece?

    Thanks, glad you like the Beast image. That one took me about a day and a half. I spent a full day sculpting it out in ZSpheres, detailing, posing and exporting out the matcaps to build a composite then start the hair. The half day I finished the hair, color, skulls, and environment. I called it quits early on the lava elements, which as someone pointed out I could have added some hot embers billowing up and a more defined sky/clouds to really push this image.

    Hello everyone!

    Here is another quick ZBrush, Maya and Photoshop mash up. I've been too busy to do any personal stuff right now, but I thought I'd share this image.

    Hope you enjoy,

    C+C are appreciated...

    Sommoned from the Depths

    Hello CA.O Community!

    Thanks everyone for all the comments!


    I've been trying to find the time to post some new work, and with the recent ZBrush 4R2 release, I had to get my hands on all the new features. Dynamesh and LightCap are very fun! Thanks Pixologic for these awesome features!!! (among many others



    So, this is a personal piece I created for my portfolio. I love aquatic life and the unique forms of life that thrive in our oceans, so I'm constantly gravitating toward designing creatures within this theme.

    I wanted to depict the moment when this creature, summoned against its will, first breaches the sea. Angered by the ferocious swells, tormented by the frigid wind and riddled with disdain as it scornfully peers out to the one who conjured him from the silent depths below.

    Critiques on the concept or how well my story is conveyed and how it can be improved are appreciated. Also, any technical software critiques are also welcomed.


    I created the model, colored and rendered in ZBrush. I did almost no composite work in PhotoChop, just short of some final contrast and blur touch ups. The background / environment was PhotChop.


    Thanks everyone and I hope you enjoy!

    Nothing Left to Burn

    Hi CA!

    Here is something I've painted recently. I started this as a rough alien type character, then allowed the image to develop, which is one of my favorite ways to paint. The character, over time, developed into the scale that it is in this image, which helped flush out the narrative that gave it it's name: "Nothing Left to Burn." So, evidently, I visualize an apocalyptic story, but with an actual aopocalypse at the end instead of the last minute hurra that always seems to save mankind at the last second... haha..


    What do ya think?
