Turian Zbrush 01 by batchix Turian Zbrush 01 by batchix
Trying to do some new work for my portfolio

Turian based loosely on the original study in the mass effect books plus some inspiration from a sculpture by Jordu Schell.

I'm not a concept artist, so i tried to find something that I could sculpt from. Even though i'm an environment modeler by preference, i couldn't think of anything to sculpt in zbrush that was strictly environment based! sooo... here you go. turian.

I need to do some work with the stamp to do detail scale texture work.

Not only is this beautiful in the Zbrush way, but you could say it made an art project in high-school art so much more fun. <3
The project I'm currently working on is a clay sculpture. Now, when it comes to clay, I'm quite unimaginative (my heart goes out to plasticine). So I decided to not do something original and do a turian bust instead.

And my little joy at the idea would've been crushed if it wasn't for this Zbrush'd turian ya did~ Teacher would not have let my scupt if I didn't have something that showed various angles of the subject, and so this did it~

So I am eternally grateful for you making my art class more enjoyable. (And for indirectly creating the funniest memories of me going hysterical when my turian's head fell off while working on him) <3

Very cool study of Turian anatomy :), Can I use this study if I made a illustration of ona Turian nude?
