"Jurassic Molasses"

All toys digitized with Makerbot Digitizer, Imported into Zbrush R7, Rendered with Keyshot, tweaked in After Effects. 

Yesterday I went crazy with the Makerbot Digitizer and scanned a bunch of my kid's toys. This entire scene has over 22 million polygons! I really wanted to push Zbrush and Keyshot... and my craziness to see if my computer could handle it. I'm happy to report that we made it!

This is impressive love key shots rendering capabilities the quality of makerbot digitizer however is something to be desired, but still give a nice artistic style and texture to the overall piece . Nice work brother.

Zbrushing a grackle for the Bells project. Starting with the head then working my way to the body, wings, and talons. Still thinking about how to feather this guy. #zbrush

Zbrush Session: "Life Sucker" 
Stay away from these things... if you can help it. I'm tired, but my mind won't stop thinking. Zbrush sessions + Beatles really helps with this.
