Celebration

A newborn is welcomed by the den and its keeper. I wanted to sculpt a monstrous scene (using ZBrush) but without the often-found menace and violence implied - even though the adult creatures appear to be snarling, they just look that way and are in fact very pleased to see a new member of the family. All these renders in Keyshot, apart from the turntable which is rendered in Zbrush.

I created about 5 different tri-part brushes in Zbrush - each with a head, a central segment, and a tail. This made for easy drawing out of the snakes, without having to resculpt each segment or leg each time.
