Miami, FL (well more like Carol City, FL but you get the idea)
i'm awestruck.... thank you Nick for this beautifully crafted model and thanks ZbrushCentral; its people like nick and everyone else here that make this place such a magnificent community of artists. Truely there is no other place like this!
Wow....I am surprised this made top row...the religion part I mean. If someone gives away a car model can he preach the Koran, claiming we are ALL children of Allah? Would the forum admins encourage someone to espouse the virtues of Scientology or the Raelians with a free creature model, with a top row stage for those ideas to boot? How about a nice dose of atheism with a well-done environment, free for download?
I understand people have their genuine beliefs....but just as well, there is genuine dissent. Many of us find these ideas intellectually and morally offensive. Just because there's a free model attached doesn't mean some of us won't speak up in opposition...but do we really want religious debates on Z-Brush forums?
That said, I do think the model is deserving of top row...but please, spare the sermons. If ye want to preach...go to YouTube, make a blog, write a journal...join a church. You get the idea.
At the very least, don't expect everyone to agree with your message or accept it because it comes with a nice model. I mean, Jim Carrey is a funny guy, but I don't want to hear his wacky ideas about the 'dangers of vaccination' in his next comedy role. Know what I mean?
And now, food for thought:
'But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly'. -Matthew 6:6
Final note, Pixologic will delete any post it doesn't like. They've deleted several more of my posts later in this thread.
