Trying to conquer ZBrush

So with the precious time off I have between semesters I have been trying to figure out ZBrush. It has been called the photoshop of the 3d world...Its really cool, If I can just figure out the basics. So far Ive learned how to make normal maps and how to cross pollinate with 3ds Max and learned the tools..Thats about it. Heres a sample of my fooling around in Zbrush with a model of mine from 3ds max.

Swingin' Stitches: Final

ok....This is my animation studio final! I had trouble posting it before because it was a little over one gig. So I mad an account on Youtube. I uploaded the video and I got a e-mail from Sony Entertainment to "maybe" alter the music. Because both the songs "All that Jazz" and "In the mood" are owned by them. Im not going too, I gave the music credits, and Im not distributing this video for profit..

Anyway... working on this project was a nightmare delight! I enjoyed the beginning with story boarding, character turns, walk cycles, script, character sheets, sound fx list, action sheets etc... But then the animating began....and the critiques. In the end I think I may have edited the animation about 15 times. Im just glad its over.

All in all, I would like to go back and tweak a few things, but for now....enjoy

Semester is Finally Over!

Well the summer semester has come to a close as of 8/13/09. Ive passed in all of my work, hopefully I did well. anyway I am going to be posting the finished animations I did this semester. starting with my first ever 3d animation. keep in mind a few things... I'm not a team of a hundred people, I had four other classes, Its my first 3d animation. I executed this project to the best of my abilities! I eventually want to go back into the animation and tweak a few things when I'm better.

Any who, here is my first 3d animation titled "Curse of The Black Diamond", along with a mental ray render i was fooling around with.
