hey jason originally posted this in your other thread but thought it might be to buried so figured i would post my reply here..
hey jason yeah the adobe connect thing was great was thinking we should start it up again so i suggested it here http://www.zbrushcentral.com/showth...hlight=ventrilo hopefully there's interest and we can schedule a definite schedule that we can have it open to the zbrush community.. till pixologic comes out with the whole zcast thing that was mentioned here http://www.zbrushcentral.com/showthread.php?t=036912 would have been a great teaching aid and learning tool for the zbrush community.. thats great jason that now you teaching with the commercial version wow 19 students is alot, so far i have been teaching a couple of friends and there taking i=to it pretty well i have taught 8 people just this year alone.. been trying to get them to post there work here but there to scared and afraid of what people might say so i told them i was just like that and said the more you post the better you will get, which i think is true considering my early work..lol.. thats great news jason that your teaching your 3d already im sure when she advances you can get her in to legos and then kinects. thats funny that shes taking to the old block throwing in time who knows she might hit the from time to time and then the dog will really have to be on his toes,lol.. i actually just went up to new york to go see my newly born niece who is a month and a half old, cant believe im uncle already where did the time go, so im hoping she shows interest in art im so excited about all the things i could teach her maybe who knows maybe in time she could become a member of the zbrush community..
yeah modo i have just started getting in to i like what i see people are doing with it and would like to get comfortable with it, i hope your able to maybe do tutorials on it in the future would be a great asset to zbrush for rendering... thats great that your working on digital tutorials to get rid of a lot of the clutter and torn pages, not mention the occasional missing book that happened alot when i was going to school..
wow thats great that you have done all that with maya i hope to go through them when i have the time to i have been forever wanting to rig and animate and breath life into my zbrush creations and render them out with nice lighting. you really have a lot of work ahead of you to do all those tutorials im sure they will turn out great..
wow thats great jason these will help out so much cant wait to look at them have been wanting to learn digital painting for so long might be time to upgrade my hardware have been hearing alot about the new cintiqs they look real cool for getting in to painting sketching and sculpting, actually in the video for it they even show zbrush being used on it. but yeah i hope my painting and drawing skill will improve over time as my sculpting has improved over time.
yeah photography has been one of my passions for a while especially wildlife photography actually we have close friend of the family that used to shoot for national geographic and he really got me interested in taking it up so not to long ago i bought a 15 megapixel rebel really like iit but would like to get some better lenses for it get a whole lot of blurring with it was wondering if maybe you had any suggestions of what i should get for lenses to take good pictures one for close up to medium distance, and the other for far away for really zooming in would like to get some better lenses because im just using the stock 55 millimeter lens right now..
its really great hearing from you also hope everything's going well with family and happy to hear that your teaching more on the side im sure the students are learning alot..yeah i know what you mean i bring mine with me every where it is great friends cant ever understand why they invite me over to play games i bring my laptop and iintous 4, i guess its in artist thing they will never understand..lol.. yeah driving car with it would be interesting im sure marcus civis could help with that..yeah just recently got a wii because friends wanted to get me in to playing it heard you can program the wii trying to figure out how t mod it so i can use it with zbrush in combination with the intoous4 as separate hotkeys, thinking about maybe getting a custom keypad stick seems like it would do wonders for shortcuts and choosing brushes....
thanks jason happy you like them have been trying really hard to improve in all areas of artistic expression everything from sculpting to painting to 3d and drawing.. so hopefully they will improve progress hoping to maybe one day get a job in 3d as a concept artist or maybe a wildlife artist if i get good enough.
i updated my sketch thread added some traditional stuff this time http://www.zbrushcentral.com/showth...4870#post724870, im actually working on another dog head right now but im also doing it in pottery clay using it till i find something better to work with but the grog is terrible in it. but its the only kind of clay they sell around here so im thinking about ordering online for something different once this runs out, but yeah im really enjoying sculpting and not having to worry about topology but now the problem is im dealing with gravity and its hard not to get the sculpture to stop sagging.
but its great hearing from you and look forward to learning and watching all your videos thanks again for being a great friend and well a vital asset to the zbrush community in the area of education and teaching.. sorry that your efforts continue to go unnoticed by the pixologic company i hope one day you are recognized for all your hard work and determination.. wish you the best as always friend..
Good post Troy thanks for the update on your work. The post links lead to dead air but I searched for them easy enough.
Full screen: There is a little button on the bottom of the video if you watch them on youtube, it has 2 arrows (one pointing up and one pointing down) hit that and everything looks like 1000% better. That is the fullest fullscreen you can get.
hey jason i asked this question in the question and answer forum but know one apparently knows what im saying.. heres the promblem i got a large intous 4 for digital painting and i was wondering, how do i set the active tablet area ..
what do i need to type in the coordinates boxes under tablet mapping for my intous4 large http://www.wacom.com/intuos/large.php to get my active tablet area to function as my old intous3 6x8 inches ..so that i can map my tablets active area specifically for zbrush4 ? because i originally got the large size for drawing and digital painting and dual display capability... and i don't really seem to understand pixel to inches conversion ratio to scale the active area down proportionally to a size more usable and manageable..
im not sure what to put in as far as coordinates goes so that its active tablet area functions as my old intous3 6x8.. any help some one here can give would be greatly appreciated?.. because i would hate to have to buy another intous4 tablet just for zbrush alone..
how do some in the zbrush community have there tablet setup for use in zbrush?
