    Default NickZ Beta Blast. DO NOT DELETE THIS THREAD

    Hello,

    I’m Nick Zuccarello. I’m a Graphics Trainer for Electronic Arts Tiburon in Orlando Florida.

    I’ve been ZBrushing for about 2 years now. I love how the application has opened up sculpting to a whole new breed of artist.

    I can recall not too long ago having such a blast sculpting traditionally that I thought to myself that I didn’t really care about digital sculpting any more…. that is until ZB3 Beta came along and once again floored me.

    Now, with the addition of the Subtools, layers, real-time shadows and shaders, It is really starting to feels like you are sculpting on a real object.

    I really don’t know how I would be able to go back to sculpting without shadows now. It really helps me understand the forms correctly.

    Lazy mouse is also a new must have.

    I’m really starting to love the direction the program is going and I look forward to see what Pixoloigic will come up with next.

    Here are some of the results of my test that I have been working on.

    Thanks to the Pixologic for the opportunity to participate in the Beta program.

    It has been a real blessing,

    NickZ.

    Beautiful work! Why do so many of these beta renders have that red shader? Just wondering..

    Cool poses and expressions!! :P

    Are poses & expressions (move tool) layerable? Like, can you add moves to layers and pose and unpose the ztool with a single click? (.. if you know what I mean)

    Remib - Thanks bud!

    lear - Thank you (I don't think it is all there yet but I feel pretty good about the process so far.)

    YsenGrin - Guess you are right.

    3Dean - That is the new default shader. I really am starting to love the look of this one. I also like the silver shader that is on the 2nd image.

    feureau - Thanks! Yes you can store poses in layers. That is exactly what I am doing. I don't think that I can get into the specifics on what the process are right now because they may change when the final release comes out.

    I had a little time to sculpt on the inside of the mouth.

    I was trying out the make "movie" feature inside of ZBrush, very cool by the way. So I was able to capture some of the scuplting session.

    This Google Video is the result of that session.

    I wish I could show the hi res movie. That way you could see more of the detail that was being sculpted during the session.

    Peace,

    NickZ.

    P.S. Thanks Petey!

    wow. that movie was really cool--thanks for posting that. is that a new feature in the latest beta? i'm wondering why we aren't seeing more movies posted by other beta testers...
    anyway, nice work. that head and torso are very well done.
