Some Zbrush fun again :)
Title inspired by tool ' ticks and leeches '.

Please give me some feedback on this ! I'm trying to get back into 3d a bit...

The artwork is pretty good but it doesn't fit for a parasite and a tick, first the legs should have been hooks, not like this, if its a tick it will need to be able to climb and hook, second his mouth is pretty bad for a parasite, like on the pic his mouth is made for chewing and the tick's mouth is not really a mouth, its more like a harpoon which they will use to bite and suck up the blood, then his body is pretty big and round and for a tick his body should be like a list of paper not round but after all the picture is great and it will make a good supplement for evolve stage 2 :D!

OH GOD SMASH IT! Love the teeth and the little hairs.

It's great... quite creepy... but yeah, I've been playing Gears of War 3 lately and I really want to see this thing get stomped.

Cool, do you have a favourite in mind? We're hoping to get some more artwork uploaded as soon as we finish the new version of the website.

I'd have to say 'Downtown' from Andree Wallin.
It's a must have! hehe.
Good luck with the new website !

heh thanks :D
No sadly, I don't have the free time at the moment to create a full 3D scene :( but I'd love to though.
Some day maybe.

Crazy. Awesome texture. Makes me think I know how it feels. Rough leathery skin and hard flesh.

How good is Zbrush? I have it, but I haven't been using it lately.

Can you SCULPT with it D:"? I mean, I know you can PAINT with it -textures and stuff- but can you CREATE with it O.o?

As for this, it looks pretty bad ass X.X! Better than anything I could do so far XD".

The teeth look a little weird though, specifically on the bottom jaw ; it looks like they're just painted on and not really standing out D:. That camera thing by its head looks a little out of place too. I mean, it just looks like it was glued there, rather than a PART of it O.o. Maybe work on that a bit?

Over all, amazing job n_n!

it's just plain PERFECT.

YES, that's the goal. It's as close to sclupting AND editing precisely as photoshop is to editing and drawing/painting.

yes you can create, that's the main goal. I made this all in zbrush, starting from a simple sphere (basic zbrush starting mesh).

lol some are actually.

Tool is amazing :)

Well, thanks for the heads up x]

I look forward to figuring it out -once I finish a small project in Blender x3-

Good luck with your 3D exploits :]!

Lol no offence, but now that I look back at it , blender is getting pretty useless lol.
Have you tried 3Dsmax ? :)

Hey you know what you can do in blender like the subdividing + sculpting ? zbrush is the same,but a lot more powerful.

Hehe thx!
Ophiguris's avatar
Yeah, I know Blender's kind of like MS Paint -following the photo-editing and image software comparison x3-

But it's a good place to start and grasp the basic concepts X.X".

I've never touched 3DSM D:" my other friend is REALLY trying to get me into Maya, which looks good and all, but Zbrush seems more. . . 'color' oriented XD", and I'm more of a painter so, I'll probably lean towards it more.

And no problem x]
