My first post
These two models are the very first projects I've finished in Zbrush. I'm new to the program and modeling in general. I think that under the circumstances, I did a pretty good job. I modeled both faces from a low poly mesh I made from 3 z-spheres. Unfortunately, I only have 512MB of ram, so I couldn't go above 400,000 polygons. Some dodge and burn and the eye glow in the demon face was done in paint shop pro. I know it's not fantastic, but it's one of my first creations as a 3d modeler. With all this said, I THRIVE on comments and constructive criticism. Please point out what I'm doing wrong/right. Also, please don't be mean. I really appreciate any comment or criticisms you can give. Thank you.
Please either leave your comments or questions! I need help to grow as a modeler. Thank you.

There are more around for sure....but hese are some I am partial to....I want to find the hand tutorial from Pusghetty (excellant tut) and there is a basic zsphere head base setup around here as well...I will try to find both for you also and post....the links about are the threads where the tuts and or zscripts are located...if a link opens up and is nothing but text /code then save it as a text file and run it in your zscripts....
That link will take you to the speed modeling head challenge area...lot of great head scripts on those pages from everyone....and if things move too fast stop the script...(Esc) button and you can slow things down in the zscripts drop down menu and then restart the script .....also if you are unsure of what you are seeing being done, in the zscripts pallette you can click on the Show Actions to see each button being pushed during the session.
Hope this all helps you a bit.
Wow, thanks a ton, Ron! It was awfully nice of you to help out so much. I will certainly look through the scripts you have there for me. I have the full version by the way. When I saw the ad for this software on another site, I knew I had to get it. My friend is a 3d modeler, and I became interested from watching him work. You're awesome for helping me out, Ron. I really do appreciate it so much.
P.S. I'm building a new computer for the sole purpose of 3d modeling and animation. What video card and RAM would you suggest I get? I have $1616 to spend. Oh, and it's a desktop.
You are quite welcome.
As for a video card....I am not much help on that at the moment...I am still using an old Voodoo card...my system is ancient...about 8 years old....Mentat7 lists his system I believe on the bottom of his posts...so when you check out the threads that might be of some help. I personally am more interested in several gigs of ram and processor speed on my next system, though a good video card is important as well. LOL, I am so prehistoric I don't have a clue on what my own next video card should be.
Just a note Ron that other complete noobs are finding this most helpful as well.
