MAYA USERS REJOICE! We can finally understand ZBrush!


I’ve always been familiar with ZBrush, but I never fell in love with it until today! The new toolset in 4R8 is awesome! Minus a few bugs, we now have access to a Maya like gizmo, deformers and lattice tools, and a plethora of new and easy comfortable knowledge thanks to Create 3D Characters! They just released a two hour free tutorial for stylized dragon in ZBrush specifically dedicated towards Maya lovers! <3 Seriously guys, thank you! I’m gobbling this up and can’t wait to show all of you what I make in ZB next! <3


Welcome to my 3D Art Notes Journal!

butterfly1Anything I find important, interesting, or creative, I’ll post it here. This is a journal of my works in progress and current endeavors, but also a collection of some of my favorite resources, collated and organized with tags and a handy dandy search bar. Enjoy! and as always, Happy Arting!

My Fantasy Castle! This feels AWESOME


IT WORKS! YOU CAN ACTUALLY WALK AROUND AND EXPERIENCE IT! I’m so excited!!! My dream castle project is finally coming together, and I’m creating it all by my wee little self in Unreal and Maya.


Remember this post from… one year ago?! or this one?! …Now the reference images are this GINORMOUS mood board. I also sorted out the sense of scale, what it means to be a fantasy castle vs. a real castle, what shapes, forms, and moods I want to express, and even learned a bit about Gothic architecture. All of the stuff I need is now in my head and the hardest parts of ‘starting’ I think are over.

All of these things have accumulated to this very moment, THIS ONE, RIGHT HERE… Where I have my tower… and a ton more building to do, and I couldn’t be more overjoyed or excited to see it all come together. So keep your eyes peeled. This is going to be EPIC. Please follow me on Youtube! I need 100 subscribers to get a custom URL! (if that link doesn’t work click this one)
