The Mold People

Some z-brush sculpting I've been trying out - based off of the 'mold people' from issue #21 of Prophet. What an amazing program - once you've got a basic understanding of it, there's a lot you can do with it...

is he wearing one of their skin to trick with pheromones and not be detected?

interesting idea                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         I have a project idea similar to your stuff, that implies the existence of multiple sophotn species from different worlds and timelines in a new world, including humans but also very divergent stuff liek triradial sophonts,far future brin shrimp,suminians and many others

I think this was my favorite part of the first volume (I just bought it yesterday and have been loving every moment of it.)

I love your drawing style and I find these termite-like people fascinating, though the different cultures aboard the caravan were close contenders for favorite cultures met so far. I'm looking forwards to getting my hands on more Prophet!

I need to start looking at my local comics place for this magazine. I've loved everything you've posted related to it!

Thanks, man. The next issue will be out on the 22nd, I think, too, so they might be easier to find. If not, I think the only way to get it (for now) is through a comic store (getting them to order it for you).

Nice work! If anyone's looking for a free alternative to Z-Brush with some really nice sculpting capabilities you might want to check out Sculptris, it was a private project similar in some ways to Z-Brush but now Pixelogic (makers of Z-Brush bought it and hired the author to develop it further). It's free for now (with registration to get a download link) at:[link] , Sorry if that sounds like an advertising plug, lol, I just thought it might help those here who can't afford Z-Brush (like myself) to get started making their own creations.

Is "Prophet" available online or is it at least available for purchase? I've never read any of your work and I want to change that.
povorot's avatar
It's available online through graphic-ly and the other comic apps, but those are expensive and you don't actually own the comic you buy (which I inherently distrust). If you're in North America, you should be able to pick up a copy at a local comic store - or get said store to order it.

And if you want to get "Jan's Atomic Heart", it's available through a company called poseur ink: [link]

Wow, this is the last thing I expected to see from you :D . Great work!

Is Z-brush easy to learn?
povorot's avatar
Well, I had a good teacher to help me get into it - but once you kind of 'grok' the thing, it's easy to pick up.
AmnioticOef's avatar
Huh. Do you think it's significantly better than Sculptris?
AeronyaArai's avatar
It has a steeper learning curve than Sculptris, added to the fact that it has many features that Sculptris does not have. But Sculptris is free whereas as was pointed out Z-Brush costs something like $800US.
AeronyaArai's avatar
Working between Sculptris and Blender you can do pretty much anything you can do with Z-Brush (maybe even a few more things than you can do with Z-Brush even since Blender allows you to rig your models for animation while I'm not sure if Z-Brush has that capability), additionally newer versions of Blender feature a 'sculpt mode' that while not as nice as Sculptris or Z-Brush makes it handy for 'roughing in' a model shape.
AmnioticOef's avatar
Then sculptris sounds like an unbelievable deal.
povorot's avatar
I thought the same!
povorot's avatar
Well, that's an exciting bit of news - thanks for the tip! I'm going to have to give sculptris a try...

Z-Brush is a gift from god.

Also, love the axolotl-esque jawline they've got. Looks cute.
