Bringing The Monster Manual To Life Using ZBrush

When a newly initiated Dungeons and Dragons player cracks open a copy of the original Monster Manual and sees all the wild creatures that reside inside their mind begins to race with the gaming possibilities.

But those original drawings are sorely in need of an update, and although the creature designs have been re-drawn multiple times there’s nothing like the look of a good ol’ fashioned D&D dungeon dweller created in the shiny new(ish) digital sculpting program ZBrush.

Level 18 Paladin and epic level artist Patrick Farley has been working through the original Monster Manual in ZBrush, bringing the iconic creatures like the Beholder and the Gnoll, and the more obscure/oddball creatures like the Xorn, to life with his incredibly detailed 3D models.

The most amazing part of Patrick's series- he has only been working in ZBrush for a little over a month and has already created five creature models. At this rate he'll be on to the Fiend Folio by the end of the year!
