    Why not start with skeleton and then when it looks realistic start covering it by scraps of flesh.. ?

    Cool! Keep going! Zbrush is a beast to figure out for sure. Then... I'm constantly forgetting workflow. So I save a lot of links out to go back. Here's a good Zbrush tutorial : https://www.artstation.com/artwork/LV1Zw

    Hi Sensi, good idea

    Thank you mummyman, I know what you are talking about. Workflow is constantly on my mind with Zbrush. Perhaps I will make some videos of my own, to refer back to

    Cool link, thank you.

    Hi, I have decided to retire this project.

    This is good news though. Artists such as Danny Mac, Shane Olsen and Pavlovich have
    freely publish a wealth of training material which I would be a fool not to take advantage of.

    With this in mind I shall embark on a journey toward improving my craft.

    Practice makes master.
    Don't give up.
    If you don't practice, you won't be master..

    Like I said,
    I would start from making complete human/animal skeleton. Just bones. Good reference is key.
    Then start adding scraps of flesh on top of it.
    Buy meat in the shop, photograph it, transfer to computer, and use as texture.

    Want to have good looking wood? Make real photo of tree..
    Want to have good looking rock? Make real photo of rock..
    etc.

    People who want to be 3D artists, start from making photo of things they have at home, they measure size of things in meters, write it down on piece of paper, the more detail the better,
    and try to remake them in 3D, then add texture from photo (after removing in Photoshop etc. shadow gradient).
