ZBrush Sculpting a Feather Exercise 04-2014

3D Feather Sculpt 1

3D Feather Sculpt 2

3D Feather Sculpt 3

3D Feather Sculpt 4

4 Different versions of a 3D sculpted feather with fibermesh hairs.

I thought it would be a good practice with fibermesh and groom bushes to make these feathers. It was more difficult then i expected. Because a feather is so thin it’s really hard to get the lighting and shadows correct. The results are far from perfect, but i wanted to move on with other projects..
Let me know what you think please, and if there are other folks out there who have done the same exercise i would love to see your results!
