Exploring Venus at Sunset by SteveReeves Exploring Venus at Sunset by SteveReeves
A fun project where most of the modelling was done in Zbrush (first model from Zbrush really - still a learning!) the clouds and the final render was modo. Photoshop used a little as well to add the sun. Hope you like it.

Thanks :) Is Zbrush easy to learn - hard to answer (and I am no expert I should make clear!). If you are used to another 3d app like Lightwave, 3DsMax, Modo, Maya then it is very different and will take a while to get used to. You can many things in different ways - it's kind of a system and has huge capabilites. When you are in the swing I think Zbrush is faster/easier to create a lot of things (hard surface and organic) than other 3d apps. Check out the forums at Pixologic and have browse through - should give you a feel for what it can do. There is a load of free video training there as well that will give you a good feel how Zbrush works. Also check out www.badking.au for some ace tutorials.

Thank you :) Although when you get into the swing, Zbrush makes it a bit easier I have to say!

Zbrush is a complete mystery to me though I wouldn't say I'm that experienced at modelling in Max :) Looks good and for my money you got the lighting just right (though to be fair, I've never actually been to Venus...yet!)

Yeah Zbrush is very different to anything I have used before (LW, Modo and Imagine LOL!)but very powerful - in the right hands anyway. Taken me a while to get into the groove of the Zbrush system, but I do think it is worth the effort. Some of the stuff people do with it is amazing. Thanks for the comment about the light on Venus, wasn't sure if I had overdone it - did have to tone it down a bit in Photoshop after the render!

Well done (:
Was the entire object modeled in Z-brush?

Thanks :) Yes the ship is 99% Zbrush. I popped it into modo for a couple of vertex tweaks - mainly because I couldn't work out how to do it in Zbrush! Zbrush has a learning curve but doing this ship has helped me quite a lot! Still tonnes to learn :)
