"Bulbasaur" - Everyone seems to be into ‪Pokemon Go‬ these days, so I thought it would be appropriate to have a ‪‎Pokemon‬ fan art sculpting session. If enough people like it, I may try another Pokemon sculpt. Comment in your suggestions!
Sculpted in ‪‎Zbrush‬ Rendered in ‪Keyshot‬.

"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!

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.
