Sounds Great Wes, I'm always looking to learn new Z brush tricks. This new Webinar setup is working great, and it's exciting how many of these classes you are pumping out. Keep them coming.

I'll make time for this one. I've been wanting to learn how to use ZBrush better for the past 6 months and haven't had the time to even sit down with it for more than about 30 minutes. This will be great.

I watched most of the Creature Modeling Webinar and I have the following feedback.

The webinar was great but it went a little slow. You advertised it being 2.5 hours and at the end of that time he wasn't close to being done. Because of my schedule I had planned for 2.5 hours but ended up having to log off before it was done. The artist was moving really slow. Most of us watching probably aren't trying to following along in Lightwave on our own so we're just watching and taking it in. I think you could move at a much faster pace and then you would hopefully meet your goal of a 2.5 hour webinar.

Other than that is was good, but unfortunately I didn't get to see the end of it. And without getting a link to watch it later or anything, I could never see how he actually turned the flat 2D model into a 3D model. I've found this to be the case in many other tutorials too. Even ones I've bought off Gnomon for big $$$. The artist runs out of time after taking to slow in the beginning and you never get to comprehend how the project is finished.

But the quality and overall webinar was very informative.

I can appreciate your comments on time... but we also had many many more people saying our speed was perfect.

The video will be available for download later, after some light editing.

Also, Adam is recording some bonus footage on further detailing the model a little more as well from his stopping point.

:D

I thought the class was brilliant.

Having joined a class like this before, I was ok with sleeping in and joining late, and I'm glad I did. The final 3 hours was brilliant for where I'm up to.

I'll be looking out for your further free tutorials, even at the cost of my sleep (gotta love timezones) but I was impressed at the numbers who came for this one (622?)

Don
have a great day

This first class was very informative & enjoyable.
It's always great to watch someone's workflow.
You always pick up something new.

I'm looking forward to the ZBrush part of the class.

Please thank Adam Gibson for us.
He's a great teacher.

Hey, I've registerd for the one coming up (which I guess is the second one), having missed the first one. How will it affect me not having the model to add detail to?

Is it possible for either a download of the first one prior to next week, or even a free mesh to use on the second?

Thx Paul, Larry is a true Lightwave guru.

Paul is possible that the dialog appears typed in some place over the screen at the time that you speaks? My english is not enough good and the 80% of the class I dont understanded for me.

Again thx

Thanks Kurv for these free webinars. :thumbsup:
About the time, as soon as I looked the bust's sketch to be modeled I immediatly think it would be imposible to do it in two hours (as in the precedent webinar that extends in one hour)). This is a very time consuming and patience work.
I enjoyed a lot seeing Adam's approach to modeling.
Maybe you need to be more realistic about the time webinars will last.
As a rule of thumbs, I actualy calculate one or two hours more than you said, hehe. :D
I'll enjoy the next part of it in ZBrush...
Thanks, :dance:

Although it was long, I enjoyed the event as well. I was multi-tasking and I had a half hour meeting in between. I think if I was following along second by second, it might have felt more repetitive and tedious.

I liked all the detail and methodology described. Suggestion to help adhere to the scheduled time: show in detail the first time a new technique is employed. Then jump to the "after," like the cooking shows. Much like Adam started showing things in other layers, he could have the "after" pieces in a layer.

Thanks to Adam and Kurv --- for always providing great free and paid content.

You might think it would be "tedious and repetitive" But it was Not - it was amazing fascinating and informative and ALIVE class. the journey is as important as the destination. This was like looking over the shoulder of a master as he modeled and explained every detail. also the "gotomeeting" experience was outstanding - glitch free.

It was a great learning experience to lean someone else's modeling style. It was fun and enlightening. Thanks Wes!!!

Yeah, really enjoyed the first one and look forward to the 2nd part. Four hours to get to where he was is quite realistic considering he had to talk to us while doing it!!
