View Full Version : TMNT Zbrush bust - Leonardo
03-14-2012, 12:43 PM
Hi everyone. First post in a while here. I want to post my glam shots and progress of my TMNT sculpt WIP inspired by a series of paintings by Dave Rapoza (http://daverapoza.blogspot.com/). I plan to start designing the body and posting my progress here.
Here is a color BPR with a little photoshoppery magic and a matcap BPR to see the sculpt detail. Enjoy!

This is awesome! I always loved those dark concepts.

This is sick! Now make it a full character!!
There were quite a lot of turtles these days, but I didnīt like any of them ( maybe I missed a cool piece, dunno) but THIS one is sooooo cool!
Maybe just the eyeball itself could.... no wait, texture will do it : )

03-14-2012, 01:38 PM

Oh man, I didn't expect anything clicking on the title of your post.... how wrong I was.
This is freaking cool, I love how you handled the expression. Banner material.

NAILED IT! Awesome work. :poly101:

Nice would love to see how you went about doing the fabric.
03-14-2012, 03:31 PM
Wow! Looks amazing!
03-14-2012, 03:35 PM
yeah me too, the fabric looks AWESOME. as does it all.
03-14-2012, 03:54 PM
Not digging the chest strap it feels like plastic to me, but everything else is amazing!
03-14-2012, 04:11 PM

03-16-2012, 10:13 AM
I just pooped a little.
03-16-2012, 11:42 AM

Hey thanks all for the kind feedback! Go check out Dave Rapoza's livestreams (http://www.livestream.com/fuckinartwithmrdelicious) too!
@LRoy: Thanks! Glad you like the concepts too : )
@itismario: I've already started!! I'll post some progress soon...
@C86G: Haha, thanks man. Textures will be rad, I cant wait to start!
@coots7: Thanks! I'm happy you dig it. I love how Dave made Leo so battle hardened and raw. I definitely want to stay true to his vision : )
@kevlar jens: Ha thanks! Cant wait to detail the body.
@BeatKitano: What's wrong with my post title?! : D Haha, thanks for the compliments!
@duncan: I really tried to do Dave's work justice. (His is still cooler I think : )
@SnakeDoctor: I was thinking about posting some detail screens if there's more interest. Basically I used displacement for the fine detail and separate tubes for the frayed strings.
@Chimp: Cool, thanks : )
@Thegodzero: Totally agree. A lot of it looks too shiny for my taste. But then again, it was a quick BPR. Textures will help resolve those issues down the road. Thanks for the feedback!
@spectre1130: Thanks a lot.
@Miche: Cool man! Glad you like.
@jramauri: I'm on it! Promise.
@Torch: Bahaha! Love the tears of joy : )
@Callesw: Schmoly! haha
@Ravenslayer: Thanks dude
@konstruct: My plan is working! The pooping of the masses has begun...
@drunksgt: Thanks. I did not get Dave's permission so-to-speak, but I did contact him before posting anywhere basically out of respect. I think it is important to notify the original artist, especially if the artist owns the creative property you want to model. They may be cool with it, they may not be.

03-16-2012, 03:53 PM

03-16-2012, 05:20 PM
Really cool! Reminds of the cartoons... yeah... I need to watch them now! ;)
03-16-2012, 05:23 PM

Sick sick work :D Love it!

This looks awesome man, a much more gritty look than the TMNT we are used to.
03-30-2012, 01:03 PM
I agree with everyone else that it looks absolutely amazing however I believe the Ninja Turtles were supposed to have been spawned from some domesticated pet turtles rather than a sea turtle. To that regard, the really deep scaled shoulders look weird. I'd do a search for "red eared turtle" on google. Their skin is more smooth like a snake. Your current design makes it look more like crocodile skin to me. Other than that, its really good!
got top row Ian, nice job dude!

Very nice work. Love the tattered headscarf.
07-09-2012, 05:24 AM
This is such a inspiration for me I love TMNT. I might just sculpt one.

08-11-2012, 02:54 PM
Dude! This is awesome!! :D
08-20-2012, 10:45 AM
Great work never seen Leonardo look so bad@ss lol
08-28-2012, 12:32 AM
Excellent work man!
09-03-2012, 05:21 AM
I didn't expected to see so Leo. Generally, it's not so good to envy, but this work has shaken me by detail level.
09-04-2012, 06:14 AM
Wow, nice! I wish I can do that one day :P
09-05-2012, 01:34 AM
wonderful detailing!!!! :))
09-06-2012, 11:49 AM
09-09-2012, 08:51 AM
Amazing reinvention and great attention to detail, would love to see the TMNT's realized in this kind of style!
Haha! "Ninja Tortoise"! I used to watch this TV show when I was little as well! :) Cool art!!

Awensome work, I like the final look...
01-08-2013, 05:44 AM
just a quick question by someone who only recently entered the realm of Sculpting with ZBrush etc.:
There are these fuzzy and torn areas of the eye-bandages and also at the sword's hilt. Did you really bother to snake-tool them out? Or which way is a start for subtleties like that? You know... it seems quite crazy to do it with methods I know so far ;)
01-15-2013, 03:03 AM
I will be keeping an eye on this one :D
01-18-2013, 10:03 AM
Angry turtle :) Great work bud
