Question Joe… do you do full on textures in ZBrush or mostly just the morphs?  I know that’s probably a silly question since you just got through with your mini tutorial but one thing that is perplexing me… working on getting Bruno’s skin, I’m about 90% there, very happy with the tones and some of the details but ... is there a way to keep a texture loaded but ‘tint’ it within ZBrush so I can keep with using the detail from the texture?  I’ve tried just about every idea from using the alpha brushes (which didn’t do squat for what I was after).  With all the great works that come out of ZBrush I’m sure there is a way but I just can’t figure it out.  Watched a multitude of tutorials today and none of them touched on that.

I’ll adjust colors in photoshop using gradient maps or variations.  Whatever you do, you have to do to all three maps, otherwise you’ll get seams.

Yea, I figured that PS was the solution but seems there should be a way in ZB considering all that it CAN already do!  lol Thanks! grin

Just got around to purchasing Smay’s new zombie textures.  So far loving it, I turned Mr. Hyde into a zombie hulk smile

Next after this is definitely a resident evil render I think.

After looking at Joe’s, I decided to up the size of the feet and hands but it looks a little off still to me.

I think this is on the right track. Maybe bigger arms, lats, and pecs. A wider waist and thighs might also be in order for Benjy Grimm. Thicker fingers, too. Is there a morph available to give him just 4 fingers and toes?

Just out of curiosity (I’m assuming this is the right thread to ask)... But does anyone know where to find a decent mask that resembles the classic hawkeye mask?

I remember seeing one, but I don’t exactly recall from where :-S

The only masks I can think of that even remotely look like Hawkeye’s are some of the masks for V4 (which can be refitted to anyone) in JoeQuick’s freestuff in his ShareCG gallery. You could also try Heromorph download section. See if they have one.

Interesting takes on Cap, Vision and Thor.  Your whole render also looks very illustrative.  You’ve done a good job getting the disparate textures and elements to all look a uniform style.

Just got around to buying your Superhero pack for M4 and I have to say it is pretty damn awesome! Just been playing with it right now so I do not have anything worth showing yet. Did I see somewhere where you are doing an expansion pack for this and a V4 set as well, or am I just wishing I saw it?

I could have swore I saw him making an expansion pack too. So far, he has only made some Super-Hero goodies for Golden Age Heroes in his freebies at ShareCG.

Yeah I grabbed all of those when I heard about ShareCG, since I had plans on grabbing this set and I couldn’t stand them being in my runtime with nothing to go with it. I am going to hve to break down and make something soon. Might have to try out a Punisher costume, or maybe a Deadpool.

I’ve been experimenting with the Cap design for a little while now, so I’ve been jumping around with him.

Thor is influenced from the movies, and this version of Vision comes from an old, old arcade game I used to play at the mall in my area.

Does anyone still remember it?

Thanks for the help. I think I’ve come up with a couple ideas for Hawkeye ^_^

That was the Vision right after he was rebuilt and kept the look for most of the late 80s to mid 90s. Oddly, some artists drew him with bare feet (complete with toes).

On another note, your Captain America reminds me of his Nomad days http://www.forevergeek.com/wp-content/media/2012/04/Captain-America-Nomad-470x413.jpg and the bare chested Thor from Warren Ellis’s run. Good times!  smile

And I got into comics in the 90s, so that’s how I was introduced to him.  Also vision was the only character I ever chose in that arcade game. We used to spend all afternoon at the mall trying to beat that and that classic X-men side-scroller, but only wound up wasting quarters :)


Also the Nomad cover is funny.  Apparently the shield had to go as well, and now he’s just lunging into a hail of bullets but it’s ok since he’s got a new identity :-)

Glad they ultimately opted to turn him back into Captain America.  I definitely see the resemblance you’re referring to though.  I have different versions of him, so I use the mask as the alternative to the full hood from the classic outfit.

Punisher would be easy. As for Deadpool…

Hey Joe—did I ever show you the Sentinel video thingy I did using your guy?

It was turning out kinda crappy so I ditched the WIP. Still, there were some decent parts.
