hey guys... ive been zbrushing for a bit now and would like some advice/criticism/praise what ever you like for my recent model... its somewhat of an alien head since it allows alot of freedom and creativity.
good start. My suggestion to anyone just staring ZBrush is to work out your forms at a low sub-d level and only go up when your satisfied what you've done and the proportions look right. It looks to me like you started this at 2 mil+ polys and that's why this has that playdoh look. Also I can see the exact places you used the move tool, so you'll need to use a lot of smooth brush. Are you using a tablet? If not I highly recommend it, my own work got 100x better after I bought a tablet.
thankyou for your thaughts... yes i have a tablet but i have trouble using it since it creates all sorts of artifacts when i use it. even when i set my stroke spacing really low and mouse smoothing and etc.
does anyone know any golden rules for using a tablet with zbrush?
What sort of artifacts? Post an image of it and maybe we can help. Have you messed with the tablet options in the zbrush preferences? Using a tablet is almost imperative. Maybe try downloading the newest drivers for it.
