    Mike -I'm so glad you showed this side of the pipeline. PS rendering with Zbrush is a wonderful workflow and needs more exposure.

    Great video Mike. I like to use Daz3D (free program) or Poser (costs $$) to get the pose and save/export it as an OBJ file which I can import/open in Zbrush to customize, then go into Photoshop, Painter (big $$$) or Clipstudio (under $100) to do the finished illustration.
    You can see some examples at carlkocich.com or #carlkocich on instagram.

      Carl Kocich awesome. Daz was my gate way into zbrush. Early on, my workflow was very close to what you are using.

      thanks! You are very good, two questions. How many hours take you for complete Jun? And how many years take you for become this good ?

    • OrangeAnimation 17/12/2017

      George Ioria M. Uzoma the Jun sculpt was just a personal piece I was working on in my spare time, so it it hard to say how long it took. I'll be creating the other characters in furutre zbl streams, so you can get a better idea by tuning back in. Hah. I've been drawing and painting since I was a kid, so that probably helps.
