    Default Z4 Beta Testing By: Marco Menco (Nudity)

    Hey guys,

    once again Pixologic impressed me as an artist and as a professional building some really amazing new features that are seriously going to make artists' imagination run free.
    For the image I completed I used some old geometries that I had done before jumping between Zbrush, sculpting-retopo and Maya for fixes and new ones that I mostly created out of the Shadowbox which to me is one of the best the new features. So here I'm going to share some steps of the work-flow I used during this betatesting-time.

    This is the final image, I hope you like it:

    As I said before most of the props have been done using Shadowbox and then the new Clipping brushes.

    Here is an Xposed view of the model in all its subtools:

    Here the Shadow box where just by drawing a grey mask of the silhouette it was possible to have a "ready to use" desk, and then Clip Curve:

    I was also testing the render options that you have to make a nice presentation of your model in less time as possible. So now we have the Best-preview Render option which it wasn't available before, but even with the "zbrush old school render" it was possible to have pretty cool results with Fog and Best Render. Of course now you can have both playing together and achieve some really interesting results.

    Here is a screenshot of the final comp:

    I really like that lighting too. And the carved-in ornaments on the table are a nice touch. This is a solid illustration
