This shaggy mustang colt is 98% Zbrush, just a little antaliasing in Photoshop. And yes, horses do get shaggy in winter ;)

Have to agree with your son....second head is much better...the snout seemed a bit out of proportion to rest of body.
Liked the coloring of first though!!
Keep experimenting you are on the right track.
There is an old old thread by Marcel I think it was who was trying to figure out how to use multiple version of fiber brush to get varying kinds of fur or hair and I believe Aurick posted a great fix or work around that may help ya out with working with it....if I get a chance I'll try to find it...in meantime I think a search on fiber brush would bring it up....it might even be in the links listed below this thread here.
Keep on going!!

I think I did find the post about saving the brushe settings as a tool. Actually I did figured that one out already ;) I will continue to work on the colt refining it etc. although I think that heads and fantasy characters "sell better" on the forum.
I enjoy fantasy art and love to create strange and mythical beasties, but for learning Zbrush I find it much more challenging to create real subjects.
Since my background is 2D I find it hard work modeling in 3D, especially since allot of the artists here start in Maya or some other program and use Z later in the process. Lighting and texturing (like the teddy bear) also remain for the large part a mystery. I have been doing the tutorials and downloading Zscripts which does help...some of them are quite mysterious, they click on a button with no explanation and you want to stop the script and say, hey why did you do that? :confused:
But I will soldier on :) And thank you once again for your feedback!

The horses look nicy nice. That critter looks like it wants to play tag. The three eyes look good and shiny.
I barely think of this program as a 3d program to be honest. You have to draw your own perspective, and that's a really fun thing about Z-brush. It gets easier everytime you make something, just like other art forms.

I refined the model and tried the fiberbrush again.

reminds me of old 4h days!:D
Your getting better and better with the fiberbrush, Shannon !
The model has good lighting so it's not that of a mystery to you,...and i liked that little mud-monster :tu:
i like the 3rd one best!
maybe you can reduce the size of the eye.
The first two seem to be a little bit noisy
apart from that its goodjob!

I played around with the "eye bone" and refined the colt a little more.
Hope you like it :D
