This morning I really wanted to work with ZBrush (Zaddiction), but I also had work to do. I had to do some images of a bad guy character, so I thought: Hmm, what if I risk my job, and instead of going with the usual and tried way of sketching, I use ZBrush to visualize the character, with no sketch or any preconception.
So I went right on, and started building ZSpheres, realizing the character while working. The result was very quick and natural. The whole process took about two hours. OK, the sketches would have taken me less time, but with this process I have a much more fleshed out version of the character.
ZBrush is the only software I use that makes me get up and do a victory dance every once in a while.
