    Hi Cherry Pig... ...Not sure what you are talking about...TransposeMaster/Line
    I just have the horse and then the woman as its subtool..I use the transpose feature to change the position and pose/gesture of both the horse and the woman as i'm working on them...Any rough spots that occur during the changes, I just smooth over and use the clay tubes brush to resulpt those rough areas...and then smooth over again where needed.
    I sculpt in the round, always moving the figure around as I sculpt, refining whatever needs to be refined to siut the figures pose/gesture..same as I would in real life.I made the woman bigger to be in the right proportion to the horse, which is a small Mongolian type of horse and not a huge Belgian or Clydsdale type of horse.
    Anyway,..still a long ways to go with this piece yet..and I'd really appreceate any feedback along the way...

    Thanks Cherry Pig.. I wasn't sure if what I wrote would be of any use to you, but i'm glad to hear that it was..
    I think the whole idea of the new features in Z Brush is to allow the artist to expess their creativity first and worry about the technical aspects of their creations later..at least that's my understanding of the direction the program is heading and evolving into..which is great for old school artist like myself..

    Further along with this AMAZON WARRIORESS Sculpture WIP....Still a long ways to go with it yet.
    Z Brush

    A Z Brush piece that i'm working on...It's taken from a memory of mine from a visit I took to a huge Sea Lion cave along the coastline in the State of Oregon in the U.S. about 30 years ago..Keeping that memory alive in this piece.

    hello sir. i would suggest that you try experementing with zspheres and also play around with more brushes. some brushes produce effects that are simply impossible to do with a clay brush or a standard brush.

    remember, using zbrush is like being in a room where you have an infinite ammount of clay, and you have a special tool called the ctrl + z.so dont be afraid to go crazy. it really helps to step out of your comfort zone and do things you normally dont do.

    basically all Im saying is go crazy and have fun. nothing bad at all can happen
    except for maybe a ruined ztool
