Jill Valentine Final Zbrush Sculpt

This is the final Zbrush sculpt before being output for 3D printing. I already got her printed at Shapeways and I'm very happy with the results. She was printed at 11" tall not including the base. I had made the upgrade to Zbrush 4R7 during the time of this sculpt and started to experiment with using ZModeler brush on some of her elements like the holster and as I became more familiar with the ZModeler brush I ended up creating the whole base, including the shell casings, which was really great!

 At this scale there was no point adding details like cloth and pore textures as these would not show up on the print. Right now I'm in the process of painting the printed figure and will post shots of her once I'm done.

Ammo Pick-Up

Here is an ammo box pick-up item concept I created using the new Zbrush ZModeler brush. It was a lot of fun. This pick-up concept is intended to be used in a third or first person game.

Jill Valentine Maquette Test Shot

Colour test shot of the Jill Valentine maquette just to see what she would look like molded in colour as well as seeing how the new base design looks: I really like it! I find that it really helps visualizing what needs tweaking this way. At this point I'm going to cut her up for 3D printing and doing some fine tuning of details etc.

ZModeler Test

Quick ZModeler test as an exercise... did this in a couple of hours to familiarize myself with the tool. Really fun to work with it especially never having done any low poly modelling before.

Here's a quick base design mock-up I created for my Jill Valentine figure to be 3D printed. This was created with the new ZModeler Brush in Zbrush 4R7!

Jill Valentine 3D Print (WIP)

Almost done with this Jill Valentine collectable maquette. Just have to start separating and preparing her from 3D printing and making some adjustments and possible a couple of details here and there. Mostly subtle stuff.

Adding Some Colour...

Adding some polypaint to Jill Valentine to see how close I'm getting with this. It's amazing how much colour can change your perspective! Its so awesome to be able to paint while you're sculpting in #Zbrush.
