Travis Trasnparent by Zesiul

Check out the regular version! fav.me/d8t0a0c

This is the fifth installment in the Smashified series. I acted as a creative director, modeler and painter for this piece.

We are beginning to become a truly collaborative team now, as this one took nearly half the amount of time to develop as apposed to previous entries. I cannot suggest teamwork enough. It makes a huge difference. My friend Andrew Coleman helped to push the development on this one. With his great knowledge of 3D materials and how to render them. He's a huge help to the team and will definitely be in future Smashified renditions.

Travis, if you do not know him, is the main protagonist for the upcoming fan game "Mother 4". Due sometime next month. A continuation to a cult-classic, Mother 4 appears to bring the same fun loving, and very strange, world back to life in all the right ways. Check out the game at www.mother4game.com/

This is the fourth installment in the Smashified series. Also my first entry and kickoff to my involvement in the project as a creative director!

Being my first entry in the series, it was more than a difficult task to capture the style of Super Smash Brothers. Testing out a wide variety of techniques is something I typically try to be good at. This was so different from anything I've done before. So much so that I found myself taking a few steps back, often. Luckily the project is a collaborative one so I would receive pointers from other group members. Being a team is truly beneficial to success on this sort of activities.

In the future I plan to tip the scales from 2D painting more so to 3D. We will of course always have a need to paint over our models, but as time moves forward I want to have a bit more 3D work than 2D. As the Smash renders developed by Nintendo are completely 3D. We just aim to get as close to what they're doing as possible.

Natural Killer Cyborg by Zesiul
Natural Killer Cyborg
I've been attempting to get more advanced with Zbrush. Today's practice pushed me into hardsurface modeling. It's getting easier. This was all modeled in Zbrush, no maya this time. Rendered in Keyshot.

It's the Natural Killer Cyborg from Earthbound 2 (Mother 3)! A boss I've found to be a really cool mix of organic and machine. Just look at that tiny brain. How lovable. Yet deadly.

Since you're now working with Omni, do you think you can Smashify Rick Taylor from the modern Splatterhouse?

Hi, I was wondering: did you use illustrator for some of your work? If so could you name a few. Great works btw. They're on another level of awesome.

I don't use illustrator, that's an app more dedicated towards graphic design. I use photoshop for painting.

That's crazy!  One last question. Was your shovel night made with photoshop?

I'm very impressed with your gallery, especially because you seem to share my passion for re-imagining classic Nintendo properties.
