    Default Pixologic Release: Artist in Action - Cesar Dacol Jr. - Modeling with Masks

    cesar_masks_zbcMain.jpg
    Welcome to another release in the Artist in Action series!

    In this video, cg artist and traditional creature fx artist, Cesar Dacol Jr. ( aka voodoomonkey) demonstrates his working process using Masks and ZBrush's sculpting tools to rapidly create incredibly detailed creatures. Along the way, Cesar imparts his wisdom gained from many years as a traditional sculptor and an excellent teacher.

    This video shows one of the most innovative uses of masks that I have seen. You will not want to miss out on this!









    Thanks Cesar!

    Happy Pixoling!

    Ryan

    Downloading now, sight unseen, many thanks.
    These videos (and I might add your superb narrating style) have made them
    a welcome treat and valuable addiition to the zbrush arsenal.
    Thanks to all involved.

    Edit: post download. Wow!!! So that's how it's done

    Jeezzz... I am gonna be busy this weekend... Greet vid, didn't know masks could do that for you!
    It is kinda weird that in Zbrush you can use masks to get wrinkles, while in real life people use masks to get rid of wrinkles...
    Thanks a lot!

    Thanks Ryan

    I love the Artists in Action Series...It's really helpful seing different peoples workflow and how to integrate it into your own. Between these, the learning series, the user group meetings and interviews what more could we ask for (maybe the next version of zbrush...nah there's enough to learn as it is now...you don't know how many times that gets asked in Scott Spencer's class...we're just excited that's all)...a huge thank you from all of us here on the forums and at Gnomon.

    Great tutorial guys! Zbrush never ceases to amaze me with its versitility. Is there nothing this program can't do?

    Great tutorial! Thanks! One question: I like to use masks too but whenever I draw a mask with quick gestures I get a stream of dots instead of a solid line. Is there a way around this or does it just have to do with the speed of my computer?
