One of the amazing new features of ZBrush 4R& is the ability to send your models to Keyshot via and plugin Bridge with a single click. This little test was to see how the Fibermesh hair carries over and to be honest I was blown away with how good the results were with no tweaking at all. ...
For the last few years I’ve been building up a collection of reference models to help teach my courses. I have a wide range of statues, figures, ecorche sculptures, toys, figurines and 3DPrints. I collect anything that helps me explain a principle or part of a subject and I always try to get hold of high end items. The Dinosaurs, for example are mostly from the Papo range. which are incredibly detailed, accurate toys and are usually to scale. For...
A new Skaaar model this week. I was having fun trying out new poses on the Zombie variant this week. I still see lots of anatomy issues on this model and I’m doing break down of each issue as a paint over ready to do a fix...
Back in December we did a full day session as part of an INTOFilm event at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester. Part of the sessions gave students from local schools the time to work with us on developing their own Alien from a brief they chose. This is the winning design by a Student from Astley Sports College in...

The three parts are: 3D Modeling and sculpting, Training 3D Modelling and sculpting and going out to inspire people to get into 3D Modelling and sculpting as a STEM Ambassador and Wacom...
Had some Skaar: Son of Hulk fun recently. Still very much a wip and one I probably won’t finish but I can already see how much I needed to re-learn anatomy. This sculpt is based on the amazing Premium Format™ Figure by Sideshow Collectibles I just started a Scott Eaton Digital Figure Sculpting course and I’m really interested to see how I improve. I’ve been relearning from the Richer books and some online resources but getting onto the...

I’m about to do some work with a company that uses Plasticine (Newplast clay) for pretty much all their modelling. I was a little embarrassed that I hadn’t modelled with Plasticine for a long long time and last time I did it was in coloured strips! I grabbed one of my black plastic busts that I use for doing heads on and modelled this Smoking Orc today for practice. I’m a long time Sculpey user but I have to say I’ve really enjoyed...
