I recently started to work in 3D, I would be interested what you think!

I have the feeling that it might be sentient, is that true?

It would be interesting to see it use the facial tentacles.  Much like an elephant.  The large limbs are for walking and heavy work, while the tentacles do the lighter work as our hands would.
Sheer genius.
Is there a full view of our wonderful friend here?
I'd love to see it.
Best, Jim

I'm aware now about the description: "Sculpted and textured in Zbrush. Shading and the final render in Modo". Do you mean this has no postwork? Supernatural OMG

I think you are a master painter. I've checked your other alien creature made in Zbrush and painted and you undestand perfectly well how to use it. I'm completely in awe. I think depending on your approach you can use 3D as a tool for getting the job done. If you have 3D modeling skills your concept art will be more complete and maybe the 3D model could be used in CG videos and games. What am I doing? I'm giving you a suggestion! I'm not worthy...;)

Beautiful and gorgeous work.  I love the details that you put into the structure and design of the body, neck and head.

I hope that you have a great and blessed day.

I just downloaded Zbrush a while ago and have been messing around with it. But I can't seem to figure out how to get the tools to work the way I need them... Do you happen to have a tut on your facebook or website? Or do you happen to know where I can find one?

Have you tried the free version called 'sculptris'? I'd be very interested in seeing what a professional can do with the tool.
Excellent image BTW.

Truly wild and captivating. For some reason I just sat here for about five minutes thinking about how I would communicate with this creature. A full spread of photon torpedoes should do the trick... I mean, open hailing frequencies, of course!

Why do I feel like saying "She's beautiful!"? Maybe it's the eyes and slender shoulder, but I'm not sure why this one looks so feminine and pretty.

You clearly do great work in both media, so it's tough to decide based on the end product alone (though for my money, 3d wins by a hair). I suppose the salient questions are: which allows you to achieve a quicker turnaround? Which do you enjoy more?

Whichever you choose to focus on going forward - you're on my watchlist now. :D

(Also, :+fav:)
