New Zbrush head...in 3 - D!!!

Here is an anaglyph image from my late-night zbrushing. This thing is nowhere near done but it's still coming along alright. I'm troubled though as I'm beginning to think that my computer is just not powerful enough to push fine details in zbrush (which is bad because zbrush runs quite fast).

(UPDATE) The non-anaglyph (2D) version is slightly newer with new surface details and a higher polygon count.

Superjon and Superkim save the day!

So here is some very simple, cheap and ultimately fun art that my old friend Kim Hannon and I made after Christmas while I was home on holiday. The process is actually quite similar to a modern green screen movie or photo. I assure you that we used only the best in pre-school technology to achieve the stunning visual effects you see before you!

Watch our thrilling exploits in photocut-o-vision!

Marvel at the dramatic fingerpaint-generated landscapes that are so real you can almost scrape them right off the page!

Cheer as we double handedly save downtown brooklyn from a certain doom at the hands of such classic villains as: A FIRE! And: A LIZARD CREATURE!

Just point and click to be dazzled so hard that you'll be blinking stars out of your eyes for weeks....and weeks....
