    roosterking: thanks man, and thanks for taking the time to drop me a line - welcome to ZBC! !

    ineversleep: thank you! Quote:"i like the idea of using zbrush to study constructive anatomy" the worx of many artists on ZBC made it clear to me that anatomical studies are crucial if you want to improve your sculpting or drawing skills:Ryan Kingslien, Zack Petroc, Alex Oliver, Scott Spencer, Scott Eaton, Nick Zuccarello, Arran Lewis, … . Did you see how an accomplished artist like threetails used this method to build up his Witiko sculpt (superhero contest)?Also, check out the works of Intervain (speedy models),PSTCHOART, anguyen and many more. I owe a lot as well to anatomytools.com (Freedom Of Teach): I purchased Andrew Cawre's Human Anatomy Male V3. It helps me a lot. Hope to see some of your worx on ZBC! Thanks for stopping by !

    @adampof: here's a start on stuff that made an impact on my creative endeavours - it's all very much ZBrush related, but I'll post some more (regarding dvd's and digital downloads, etc)in the weeks to come.

    hey etcher thanks for a heads up on all those artists, I have not seen the work of many of them before.
    it was a little easier to study anatomy when i was in school since we had anatomy class, bones to draw, very rare trips to the cadaver lab etc. well im out of school and im planning on buying a male sculpt model from anatomy tools. I want to get the V2, is there any reason you think the V3 would be a better choice?

    I found this link while seeing if i could get into an anatomy class
    old school anatomy plates
    most of the pictures are not that big so its probably not useful for reference
    but it might be fun to check out anyways

    KillahPriest: Quote:" Wow those are all the things I want in one picture" you're wrong man, those are all the things you need in one picture! Quote:"You bastard" ain't that the truth ... ... no, wait, it's all Pixologic's fault... they shouldn't have made ZBrush... .

    ineversleep: you're welcome! I'm learning so much from these artists, I feel it's very important to give them credit! Quote:"very rare trips to the cadaver lab" lucky you-I never had the chance. On the FOT model V3 is good if you need the colors as a guide to show you exactly what's bone, muscle tendon, etc, but the different colors can be a bit distracting when you want to see how the volumes of the sculpt catch light/shade. If you don't need the color guide, I'd go for V2 ,which has detacheable arms and head, like V3, which is very useful to me. V1 does not have detacheable arms and head. hth .
    Thanks for the link, it's great - I love those old books !

    Moni-Poroni: blame adampof ! I'll post some more in the weeks to come. The new ZBrush book is great, it'll be worth the wait, you'll see . Woops, Januari, that's Dutch... thanks for pointing that out; I reread the page and also noticed I wrote "multidude" instead of "multitude" ... what's a "multi-dude"? .

    eof3D: you're welcome Eugene, more to come. You're right, working with ZBrush feels like an adventure... but, judging from your latest sculpts, I guess you already knew that !

    Yeah, but it's also $800 worth of needs.

    One day.

    Hahhahahah.... that was so funny! I like your humor a lot!
    I love ZBC because of all the great work, the great tutorials, and because of all the nice people.
    BUT.... ZBC is also very, VERY entertaining!

    I`m often laughing out so loud that my husband looks at me... shakes his head... and asks me ARE YOU NUTS??
    Everytime I blow-dry my hair I`m surfing on ZBC and read the posts from a few certain members because those posts are a) informativ, b) funny, c) both. And you`re one of those members.
    Since you`re on my Z-talking list.. I know that you have almost 1800 posts. Like me! We should celebrate that! (Erm, ok, don`t count THIS post... hrrrr it`s post number 1801).

    Killahpriest: I think I know what you mean man... been there; just remember; one step at a time, if you want it bad enough, you'll eventually get there. You know how I feel about your works, I guess it'll only be a matter of time .

    Moni-Poroni: Funny?!? You're probably confusing me with someone else... I'm always dead serious. Life is too short to have fun. . You're right about ZBC; I'm very critical about internet, forums, virtual communication, etc but ZBC radiates a lot of positivity; top artists post and are willing to answer questions, constructive criticism / help is commonplace; it's really boosting my energy/creativity! Imho, ZBrush justifies the use of a computer as a visualization tool and ZBC justifies the use of virtual communication... .Post 1800 eh... numerology... I knew it was going to surface again... , maybe we should celebrate post 2000? Anyways, I'll make sure that #1800 will be on your thread... you'll see... . Thanks for the nice and motivating comment Moni

    well if you ever do get the chance to go to the lab take it because its not something your going to forget. if your local zoo has a research centre you could always ask if you can study some skulls and bones.
    thanks you confirmed what i suspected, im going to get the v2 i dont need the colors or veins etc im just interested in the muscle, bone, volume and the detachable head, id get v1 if the head came off.
    no prob! i think the old books are cool too.

    ineversleep: seems I was wrong about the FOT V1 not having removable parts (thank you Santis!). I guess the price difference between V1 and V2 lies in the included turntable (Santis, correct me if I'm wrong ) , which I find very usefull.

    Santis: thanks bud! It's the weirdest thing: last time I checked the FOT site, the parts didn't come of, I checked again just now... and guess what... .

    Santis: i cant find anything about the V1 head coming off
    V1 features - if you go to letter "L" in the bottom right it shows the
    arms and male organ are detachable, but i could be wrong.
    the turntable is cool too and the matte grey so id get the V2 anyways

    Yes, Etcher is right, the trunable is the only difference (and the color).
    I guess the head didn't come of on the earlier version of the V1, V1.2 (the one they are actually selling) have a detachable head and doesn't for example have the Richer's band, so they're probably just not showing an up to date model on their site.
