i really want to get into z brush again, but like you said I am afraid of relying on it too much to do things for me like the lighting and such. But then i think, maybe using it will help me learn proper lighting because i can see it applied in real time. decisions decisions. anyway great video as always!

I would love to hear your opinion on something that a few i know like to call innate perspective sense. Envisioning simple 3d forms like boxes in your head, imagining the curvature of a surface in your head. You drew the hands from two different angles, was that alot of technical work or did you draw it with your intuition and experience? Zbrush pretty much is doing this stuff for you but without it you have no "feeling" for perspective and end up relying on either reference or 3d models too much. It takes alot of time to develope your innate perspective sense  and i think 3d software can be very helpful especially with seeing symmetry.

I downloaded sculptris just to get a basic idea of how it all works... and quite honestly it's addicting

Digital Sculpting is way addicting. Make sure you learn how to use the masking functions. It makes it that much more addictive!

No prob! It's a great tool for editing certain areas without destroying things you don't want altered.

I just realised that i never really comment on your videos. They are awesome by the way. I considered learning 3D modeling to help me drawing, buy after listening to this I think I should probably wait for a little longer until I can at least do them in 2D without the help of programme. Anyway keep up the awesome/interesting videos!

I really really really like your square brush. Love it actually. Wish I had created it. I read somewhere though it's best to master just the basic default round brush in photoshop. Comments on using different brushes?

One of his videos actually goes over making a similar one. The basics of using any brush is the same. Ultimately it's just make/use one that you enjoy and works for your work flow.

I see. I guess I held onto what that ONE person said about mastering the basic brush because it makes sense. Still dig the square brush.

Truth is though, you can do some really neat stuff with that basic brush to manipulate how it works. Can squish it's shape, add textures, adjust how heavy it puts "paint" down, rotate it's direction (which is useful more when it's squished), set it to paint two colors at once. Of course, all those options are available with pretty much any brush.

I personally prefer the square brush myself, though I always keep a round in my settings as well. It's almost always in some squished form or another these days though when I do use it though.

Do the Zbrush sculpts you do for your paintings ever get passed to a 3D artist for cleanup? I could see how that would be really fast in a production environment.

At work I just work off of loose ketches and do and the 3D work myself. Just basically what I'm doing here, except I polish it up it to a final model.

When bringing your model out of ZB, do you decimate it for Keyshot? I have Octane but have not tried this (and dont want to crash it out if you are decimating first)... I guess maybe I'll have to trial and error anyway, but it would be nice to know.

Not really, the only things you need is a good intel processor, any i5 should be ok. And a video card, any now days mid range price video card should handle it just fine.

Does zbrush even use the vid card? Last version I had didn't support any :<

Of course it uses the video card. My amd card works just fine with it.

What I meant was that your video card does nothing to help renders in zbrush or really for anything.  pixologic.com/zbrush/system/
