    MattBon's not so low-relief sketchbook

    Trying to find time to learn some more full 3D skills in ZB, so advice appreciated.

  5. Did you get any replies to this thread?

    I might be able to help you, with the caveat that there wouldn't be much room for a revision cycle within the fee that you're offering.

    Kind regards

    Hi Bob,

    To be honest, the brushes that you use are up to you. There's no fast rule.
    I use customised versions of claytubes and damstandard, with hpolish for smoothing out areas.
