A Tribute to Jacob Bronowski



Jacob Bronowski (18 January 1908 – 22 August 1974) was a Polish-Jewish British mathematician,
biologist, historian of science, theater author, poet and inventor. He is best remembered as the presenter and writer of the 1973 BBC television documentary series, The Ascent of Man, and the accompanying book.

"The world can only be grasped by action, not by contemplation...
The values by which we are to survive are not rules for just and unjust conduct, but are those deeper illuminations in whose light justice and injustice, good and evil, means and ends are seen in fearful sharpness of outline." -Jacob Bronowski

zBrush Project - Female Anatomy Study

Trying to build a female model from the ground up. Went really basic and slowly moving up detail on different areas. Slow progress but hopefully less than 2 weeks worth of work should suffice.

Day 1 - Basic build




Day 2 - Small details







Day 3 -






Day 4 - Final for Base mesh


After some time I went back and messed with the final, I left out too much and my proportions were off.

zBrush Project - One-Eye

I wanted to make a character purely from fiction, so I choose the character "One-Eye" from the book series "The Black Company" by Glen Cook. The character is a battle hardened companion, so I'm trying to go for an aged look. The character in the book is in his late 100's, so I'm trying to do all I can to age accordingly. The skin has to tuck close to the skull and around the neck is stringy and loose, very hard to mold onto a mesh.

Day 4 - FINAL
