    Mermaidine asked me about an antique bronze material that i'm using on my sculptures..I can't find where I got it from, but will try again and post it when I find it.

    I'm not sure if these materials are compatible with Sculptris, or if they can only be used in ZBRUSH.

    Credit for and Thanks to ..of course goes to their creator..

    I downloaded them a few days ago, but have not gotten around to using them yet, ..but they sure do look like great materials for doing digital bronze sculptures, which is what i'm into at the moment.

    Just found it,....

    This is the material that Mermaidine was asking me about..It's the rusted grey metal one..gets pitted and more rusted looking when you press Best Render in ZBRUSH...The other various marble ones are great also..They really make sculptures look like marble statues.
    That wood one is also really nice for making your sculpture look like a burled wood carving.
    Again, I'm not sure if they are compatible with Sculptris..I've only used them in ZBRUSH.

    Mermaidine...Sorry to hear that those bronze materials can't be used in Sculptris..It's a shame, because they look pretty good if you are going for a bronze statue effect..Oh well...Maybe some tech wizard will figure a way to correct the file type compatibility issue that has arisen now that Sculptris has been incororated into ZBRUSH...Who knows, it's still early on in this new venture.
    I was just thinking..That if we say PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PRETTY PLEASE maybe Taron might be able to create a nice bronze and antique bronze material or set of materials similar to the ones I posted above, ..by using his MaCrea system...I watched the demo of his system, even dowloaded it. But I haven't tried it out yet , but it looks like it can create just about any material there is..
    I'm a late starter in this digital art world, so it may take me years to learn even half of it...if even that much..catch up and try to keep up is the game i've gotten myself into..but still loving every minute of it..I really envey the future generations of creative minded people,..this technology just gets more and more amazing as time goes on.
    Sorry didn't mean to ramble on so much. .I just get excited about this stuff when I think about it..

    Hey Thuglee, you should always render out a straight-up Chrome version, if you have a cool environment. That can be taken anywhere with MaCrea and I'd have a blast with it, too!
    GReAT STUFF!

    Mermaidine, if you want a zbrush material, just save out an image of a sphere with it from within Zbrush. Crop it tightly and there you have it. But there's next to nothing you can't simulate or recreate with MaCrea, even if chrystal or other transparent materials are a little tough.

    @Spiritdreamer: I am so with you...smile, as I am a latestarter myself and my little greys aren't as quick any more as they used to be, so I really can relate, it takes me some times to get to grips with a new program in 3d, which opened up a whole new world to me some 3 years ago, which I definitly wouldn't want to miss anymore. And there are so many new fascinating things to learn and experiment with...

    @Taron: Oh thanks for this tip, but there is a tiny little problem with it, I don't have Zbrush I tried to get something similar in your sweet Macrea, but I wasn't successful so far, not even in creating something which looks at least a bit similar in color...lol... oki I'll keep trying and will let you know. Will do your Tutorial again and maybe there will be a day, when I can say:Tata!

    Ahaha, thanks. Of course those are really minimalistic, but you can still get some interesting results with that, when running it through MaCrea real quick...
