Dragonfly by MichaelF77
Dragonfly
My "little" dragonfly, created entirely with Zbrush. A great deal of trial and time went into this one, and I learned so much!. I have a new fascination and respect for these fierce little creatures; the further I got into this project, the more I realized I couldn't cut corners or stop short. The wings were a particular challenge, and required many attempts... each wing was meticulously constructed one vein and cell at a time; rather than being 2D planar elements, the wings are fully realized three-dimensional models. The compound eyes are made of 24,000 components. I'll post another image sometime to show how the legs, head and wings move freely. I made allowances to animate this model in the future. The anatomy may not be perfect, but it contains elements of truth and detail that startle me nonetheless. For me, drawing is a process that occurs mainly in the mind; it requires a conception and awareness that goes beyond "mere" reproduction. Coordinating images in the mind is as important as coordinating the hand with the brain. Uniting those faculties in images like these gives me a great sense of accomplishment. In addition, it opens the door to increasingly difficult challenges.
