Bamboo test illustration

Here is an illustration I did for fun and to test some new techniques. Again, this was not for financial profit. The concept was to show many different ways you can be creative using this graphics tablet. Each tool represents a tool from either Photoshop or Illustrator. After making several renders, one being a skin subsurface scattering layer, the image was completed in Photoshop. It was modeled in Modo and sculpted in ZBrush.
Here is the final image.

Here is the base model made in Modo. I modeled the tentacles so I could sculpt in x and z axis in ZBrush all at the same time. This was a huge time saver when the suckers were added at the bottom of the octopus.

Here is a closeup of the sculpting process/

Spiritual Transformation

Here is an illustration I just finished for work on the spiritual transformation of 3 celebrities. It was a fairly long process of checking reference material and experimenting with exported fibermesh curves from ZBrush into Modo to use as hair guides.
Here is the final image.

Here is a close up of the sculpting process. I only modeled half of the butterfly and mirrored it over in Modo.

Here is a closeup of an early test render to see if the exported curves could control and direct the fur in Modo.
