The artwork shown here is exploring ZBrush as an illustrative tool, outputting 3D content as an illustration. Everything was modelled and rendered in ZBrush alongside Photoshop for postproduction.
The concept behind this artwork was to design a mechanical robot arm, often associated with technology, automation and a feeling of cold instruction. This robot arm was then shown to be painting something very beautiful and natural in the butterfly, giving a sense of humanity to the machine.
The work was also inspired by the fantastic artist Mike Thompson, also approaching illustration in a 3D workflow using ZBrush, Keyshot, Painter and Photoshop.
