    Default Same sort of thing but for 3ds max?

    Hey it looks like a great video =D. If I had the time and the money then I would definetly be tempted. Just wondering though (my apology if this has already been asked) but do you know of a similar video where it works through zbrushing an entire character but instead of using XSI it uses 3d studio max to finish the character? Thx

    Just a thought if ur thinking of making another movie =D

    Well, I'm part way through watching the DVD and I think it's great. Again, I don't own ZBrush or XSI, but I'm getting a lot out of it. I'm p.anning on buying Z (maybe when they update and I hear about the Universal version).

    It's great becasue it's just watching someone sculpt. You watch the creative process, the sometimes, slight change in direction or ideas. He just uses Move, Zadd and Zsub, mostly and gets the job done. Nothing fancy. Just like it's a lump of clay and you push and pull the clay around.

    I can see why lots of people start with a base cage from another app rather than start with ZSpheres though. If you're used to banging out a quick shape in Sub-D, you might be better off importing that to get you started.

    Anyway, great work from a talented artist.

    PS Aaron, you sound a little like Richard Shiff (Tobey Ziegler) from West Wing! (just an observation).

    Default Intrigued...

    asims: I did want to get this DVD of yours, but I was quite disapointed as I will need the XSI and I don't have it... I still consider myself as a beginner and I was looking forward if you could produce one DVD really for beginners, yes, I have the Meats MEIER Introduction to Zbrush, but it would be nice to see it from another Master such yourself. I am more looking forward to see any tutorial to build a robot with a cool background from scratch to finish.
    asims, I saw you last night!!! hahaha I bough the Detailing Characters: Zbrush Alpha Library, but although is an excellent DVD by all means, I was expecting to see how to actually make it with all colors and so on, rather only how to apply the vains and so alphas.
    Would it be so cool really for a beginner like me to see really from start to the end. My biggest problem is how to really apply textures/colours to the final piece look cool. I really appreciate if you or anyone could guide me to a cool tutorial for that.... pretty tired of sculping gray spheres... Always when I finish modeling/sculping, I look at my gray model and ask myself... Now what?...
    Just from a beginner point of view

    Meats Meier: Zbrush for illustration, this is without doubt one of the best Gnomon titles for Zbrush...

    I just bought through amazon "Get into ZBrush with Glen Southern".
    Don't know really what to expect. Some people say that is great, others say that it is ok... well, it is aimed for beginners, so.................. LOL

    WADE ZOMBIE 1.jpg Aaron/Binky,
    Was just out in LA for a little bit on a project at OPTIC NERVE. Sorry I didn't get to meet up with you. Looked around for your DVD's at World Art and Golden Apple on Melrose, even called Gnomon on the Saturday before I had to return to Prague, but didn't score your DVD's Maybe they were all sold out? I will just have to order them by mail. Your work looks great! How you doing these days? Send me a line with your email when you have a minute will ya!

    Bye the way, been following your work now and then, and it's looking great there kiddo!

    Hey Aaron, your DVD rocks!

    I'm almoust half the way (lecture 5) and things look pretty good so far (my friends are impressed!)
    I'm new to Zbrush, this is my first character and i am willing to follow the tutorial until the end, so i've just got XSI (i'm just installing it). I am a Maya user, but i've heard good things about XSI (although i've never used it)... i never textured before, never made maps, never rigged
    This tutorial is more than just amazing!
    So i will be able to keep up (and may be more ) with the artists from my team (we are working on the Shards of Asgard project....)
    It worts every $.. looking forwarding to see other great dvd's from you.


    Regards,
    Vali (lider of DK Entertainment)
