many have been curious about my work method.

well to fully grasp that i must first explain my personal origins

2 i was a traditional sculptor..alas photos of that stuff mostly got lost :(
so here is what i did in high school.... by nebezial

i practiced abour 17 yeears now to get this bunch of mostly self taught techniques to work

most of my stuff is a digital painting now, made or drawn in photoshop cs3. never switched higher as cs3 satisfied all my photoshoppin needs

i used to do quite a bit of modelling in 3d studio max, but  it was too technical of a program so eventually i gave it up and completely switched to zbrush as it provided me with excellent set of organinc modelling and texturing tools

aand some of that

blender brush by nebezial

my workflow nowadays mostly consists of mixing 3d models i make in zbrush, mostly of dragons, monsters armors, immovable stuff , and painting, but it all depends on my mood as there is also the fact that i like switching styles around

aaand i have done quite a few of those XD

motherfucker was  all no nose before voldy made it popular XD....tho honestly, he was very much inspired by general thade from  tim burtons planed of the apes.. bad movie, magnificent villain!

albert einstein defined madness as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results...

i call that practice, and  it does make a world of difference!

also , proper video tutorials coming soon... also  i'm green lantern!

"i was a painter

get photoshop cs6
it's much faster, like A LOT faster, they changed the engine and it works much better.

So you're Batman and also Green Lantern.
NOW I understand it all... just one thing though... why do you use blender for? Just use your magic ring to make the models... Oh, that'ld be sooo awesome...
