thanks...was just messing around whilst watching DS9 dvd's on sunday...it's not complete..wanted to see how hard it was to pose and sculpt and model in a pose like the cat laying down rather than in a default standing pose.
the head...well all of it is just w.i.p. or playing really.
I've been using the trial version of Zbrush for 10 days now and I'm really starting to like this program apart from the odd time the program doesn't do what it's supposed to (ie when I drop an object to canvas I can't go back into edit mode).
Anyway do you use a tablet? If so which one? At the moment I'm using a mouse whilst I'm testing out the software but in the long run I'll need a tablet for sure.
i'm using a HP tablet pc for zbrush mostly now..12.1 screen running at 1200x800...feels ace...for zbrush..
also on my quadcore desktop pc i use a wacom bamboo MEDIUM which is both cheap and really good...ideal for zbrush and came with photoshop elements and the wonderful art rage [on both pc and mac 4 installers!]
well i think i'm pushing it to call myself a 'pro scribbler'..i'm def NOT a 2d artist
so i need all the help i can get...drawing with a mouse is at best like drawing with a tethered brick!...not easy for a ''trained artist'' nevermind me with my talent for drawing still stuck at an 'average 3 year kiddie wink'
It's great that we are able to use technology to work AROUND our limitations isn't it? That's why I love CG so much - it enables me to create what my mind can conceive.
Cresshead would you recommend any DVD/video tutorial packages for Zbrush? I'm currently going through the ones on ZBrush central (I'm doing the vase one at the mo) but ultimately I want to be creating highly-detailed characters so an in-depth DVD on the subject would help.
For me it needs to be a DVD or video tut and not written (ie so books would be no good) because I need to *see* how things are done if that makes sense.
i'd def say if your looking for a detailed introduction on zbrush then either the meats mier zbrush3 or the digital tutors zbrush 3 vids are really well put together..i have the DT one and a few chapters from the meats mier one from gnomology
i have a few from digital tutors and will post a quick rundown on each later [teatime currently!]
Good stuff. was the base mesh imported from LW or modelled from scratch from within ZB?
I see you're in the UK. My trial period only has a few days to run now so it's time to get my wallet out (unless I can run the trial on my laptop as well but would that be a bit cheeky?). Anyway I was wondering if you bought ZB direct from Pixologic or did you find a UK reseller? If so how much did it cost you?
I'm presuming a £ sign is put in front of the price in dollars as everything else appears to be here in rip off Britain. Also does the product come on CD (I hope it does)?
