    that could be my chance to finally get in closer touch to 3.5 and its stuff...
    I´ll try to make some time for this!

    I´m just not sure what "committed to design" means and how this criterion
    matters for the evolution of MNC - could you wise me up?

    anyways - I´m in!
    lets shake the ZSkiffs :]

    what about drawing zskifs on a plane to keep them on one axis?

    also that design thing has me confused too.

    are we allowed to turn them into a skin or are they supposed to stay just as they are?

    By Committed I mean, Make something you would be happy evolving throughout the MNC. Doesn't have to be but keep it in mind. Who knows, you week we might have a retrospective or something..lol.

    Will be posting something here tonight...was wicked busy with some commercial stuff but I might have a moment or two tonight.

    Default zomi pomegranate

    well i decided to give it a go, this is zomi, she lives inside of this creature, she hides her eyes because she can't stand to see what it does. took about 45mins to do, this wasn't exactly what i wanted but i let it guide me. i may do another one to compliment this one or in the same theme, this is inspired by borderline personality disorder, so for me at least its not just some generic beasty. i don't know how much detail to bother with using zskiffs, it seems to get messy. image is a composite of 3 or 4 mats, zbrush crashed when i went to pose it.

    Spaceboy412: Hey way to go with whipping out zomi , ehehe really enjoy the comment
    it seems to get messy
    in conjunction with the name pomegranate since they are incredibly messy at least for me . Hope to see more of your stuff on zbc!!

    Maybe i'll participate if I can think of something that inspires me to do soon. Though I got enough to do already, not to mention my daughter and the ps3 keeping me busy.

    Very Interesting indeed!

    I wish I could work on Z tonight but alas, duty calls. An old business partner called. With the economy in such a state of flux, he has just acquired an old yet prominent distillery. I am to develop the look and feel of said distillery and re-brand it's image. Huge work ahead. I will still try to meet deadline for this MNC though.

    Keep posting everyone!

    MNC is a place for personal growth and progression. I promise that I will personally be as helpful as I can. THERE WILL BE NO NEGATIVE VIBES IN MNC!
    If you want to comment here, you MUST be able to see criticism on a positive note! If you can't think of a positive spin, do not post.

    The Beauty of MNC is to encourage ZBrush use as well as Z Exploration and growth. Yes, we as individuals and artist must step outside our comfort zone but to do so here is desired and encourages. If we do not step outside our comfort zone, we do not grow as artists. Do not fear becoming something other then yourself! To do so stops the growth of you!

    MNC is key to growth, no stifling crits here.

    Spaceboy: Bravo on thinking outside the creature box...and kudos on the image setup. very expressive..with a kind of retro spin (in my eyes anyway).

    I have only one word for progression: Refinement. Do another level for form refinement. But otherwise, such a wonderful start to the MNC rebirth.

    Default OctoZkiff

    Been wanting to do one of these for a buddy. He's rather fond of the creatures.

    Zskiffs are the perfect answer.

    Regarding Digital Art.

    "So let me get this straight. I no longer need to watch paint dry, no more toxic chemicals or ruined clothing by a rogue globule of Alizarin Crimson? No longer will be punished for experimentation by ruining my work? I can take forms and colors and patterns and rearrange them at will upon my canvas. Easily upload and have my work seen by a vast global audience? BASICALLY, I can take what ever I can imagine and make it manifest?"

    "Yes, but you'll be shunned by the "Artistic World"

    angelJ, thanks so much, they are indeed messy, much of this piece was happy-accident-inspired. you know like silly putty, guess thats my brain, lol.

    MTB, were there bad crits already? i think if the MNC was posted top row, like it used to be, there would be more interest...
    I try to progress, but sometimes its regression thats necessary, you know? haha.
    I'm not exactly sure what you mean by refinement, i mean they are just zskifs, could you elaborate in more detail about what could be refined, i have some ideas. i don't know if i will go back to it, but i might, it seems when i usually go back i start to obsess and i'm trying to avoid that and just keep it fun for myself.

    Prosthesis, way to go, welcome to MNC, i'm so glad i didn't make that cephalapod that i started, lol. looks great, i really love the headcrest and the eyes, very clean too!

    Default Bim Pa Dak

    Here's BimPaDak, this is moving more in the direction i wanted, i need to stop doing test renders so small. there is a human shaped space in its center. He had arms but for now i like it without them.

    MTB, yeah i'm going for a sort of retro feel.
