Zbrush is fun!




Here's my first rough attempt at using Zbrush....trying to make a photo real Asian elephant. (its not done yet...needs more sculpting)

I made the top model in MAYA , then I morphed and pulled it in Zbrush to form a realistic looking elephant. Zbrush is so powerful and easy to use, its just like sculpting with digital clay.

Painting elephant


Asian elephant trained to paint...........elephants!


Since the logging ban of 1989, many elephants have found work in tourist centres doing tricks to earn money. Profits from these centres help fund conservation for wild and captive elephants in Asia.
