I'm passionate about dinosaurs and 3D, so why not :D .It was also a Zbrush test i did in a couple of hours. I'm crap at it, but i hope i'll have a better grasp of Zbrush after a few test runs like this.

Hello, Would you like to send one of your artwork to participate in the international contest of this congress of paleontology researchers? 
It would be really great!…

thank you. I'm trying now to find the time to do a feathered one. Also, im looking for a good feather solution.

The red is just beautiful for this creature, well done! Did you use keyshot by chance, or just ZBrush?

thanks. It's rendered with Vray for 3DsMax.

Awesome, even if it isn't exactly Oviraptor in proportions.

The anatomy is not 100% but for a simple excercise, it looks very good visually, regardless of anatomy.
Shaka-zl's avatar
yeah, i know :))) After watching a lot of skulls, and couldn't decide which oviraptor i should do, i did one which is a mix of different known species, and the jaw is more theropod>basic raptor like, than the curved one of a oviraptor.
So it's more a Dromaeosauridae with beak and head crest.

PS.i know the eye might not rotate, but there are still some birds that can so i'm on the fence about that.

Cool :)

It's still a great image :)

thank you, next time i'll be more accurate. This is was basically a zbrush test that turned out to look kinda cool, so i posted it.
I'm working on another one...a more detailed cryolophosaurus. I'm very busy at work, but i'll try and finish it this weekend, or next week.

Shaka-zl's avatar

Shaka-zl's avatar
glad you enjoyed it. It means a lot, for such a great reception on basically my first piece in Zbrush.
