    Default Now Im having fun

    I have NO IDEA how I did this, after a lot of tutorials that both helped and hindered I gave up and started doing what I do best:
    PUSHING BUTTONS!
    Here is the result:

    FUZZYTHING.jpg

    I have no idea what Im doing most of the time, but that is starting to matter less as I get an idea of what makes fun things, what causes crashes, and what looks hideous, Im great at hideous.
    Fuzzy is great, hideous is not
    GRIN!

    Cheers!

    I like your fuzzy thing. I am in the same boat but the getting started pdf Zbrush4 has helped me and the Zbrush community.

    GRIN!
    Thanks you guys!
    I read that PDF too but I dident understand the underlying stuff or reasons for a lot of it, so now Im playing with stuff and seeing what it does.
    I have been able to make more fuzzy stuff and I will post how to do that here later today, and I can even make it insane colors.
    FLORESCENT GREEN FUZZY STUFF!!!
    YAY!


    hehehe!

    Default Well..... having failed to make other stuff with fluff or green glowing fuzzz.....

    I managed this instead.....
    Zbrush could make the most normal person resemble the most frightning mental patient....

    ok so...
    Fuzzy things arnt all that hard... however I got totaly sidetracked and spent a month trying to make more than one editable object.
    I do not have much of a background in this stuff, most of my 3D experience comes from making things in VR and that is simple to the point of trivial compared to Zbrush... fun fun fun...

    Any how, heres how to make things fuzzy:

    You know where the materials thingy is on the left ok?
    In there is something called "fibers" apply that to what ever object you are working with, it should be apparent that you have done this as the color of your object should change.
    Now, look in the "Render menu" in there you will see a pallet with a bunch of buttons, turn on EVERYTHING and hit the "best" button.
    after a hopefully short amount of time (it can take a while...) your object will appear with a lot of fuzzyness....
    Now...
    So far as I can tell this works in all sorts of ways, you can draw fuzzyness in 2.5D or make fuzzy ZSpheres or sculpt fuzzy things of what ever sort you like.
    I think I mentioned above that I have no idea what Im doing so if this is wrong or unclear please let me know. Also if screen shots would help I can do that too. I think....
    Yah, I can
    hehe.

    Cheers!

    A quick example:

    Fuzzy.jpg

    Something I havent figured out is how to do things to the fuzz it self, like make it longer, shorter, curly, wavy or flap wildly in the breeze.....
    heh
    I dont know how to make a breeze either....
    Anyhow when I find that bit I will post it....
    Somewhere in the depths of ZmenuHell there is a "do stuff to fibers" button and Im going to poke it.

    That's actually kinda totally cool.



    By the way, I meant to give a 5 star rating but the system malfunctioned and registered a 3...

    Default Another work in progress (like everything I make)

    Making some more progress, this time Im actually making things I intend to make!
    This is another that had subtools, I actually learned to rig with this one but have already forgotten how.
    Someone needs to poke me in Zbrain, Im Ztupid.

    ok....
    Im out of control....
    A number of you guys have been making dead stuff, bones and so forth and with insane amounts of detail....
    I decided to find out HOW and I think I found it. I have to say one thing, if people knew what went on in Zbrush they would try to make a pill to fix it, as I made this I came up with all sorts of grisly ideas about what it is and how it got dead, looking at all your zombies and stuff helped with that i think.
    GRIN!!!!
    Please bare in mind here that I am still very new at this and that my computer wasent thrilled at the number of times I poked the "divide" button....
