A Sneak Peek at the ZBrush to KeyShot Bridge
A sneak peek at the upcoming ZBrush to KeyShot Bridge: As we finalize ZBrush 4R7 we wanted to share with you this sneak peek movie which focuses on one of the upcoming features: the ZBrush to KeyShot Bridge! This exciting new feature allows you to send your ZBrush scene straight to KeyShot (in one click), allowing for an incredibly easy transition to rendering with KeyShot. Additionally, you will also see ZBrush 4R7's new ZModeler Brush in action as it is used to create the engine. Some of the features shown in the video are: *Single button press allows for high polygon models (without decimation) to be sent to KeyShot *Apply KeyShot materials directly to the mesh *Size, position, and MatCaps® are respected across the ZBrush to KeyShot Bridge *Adjust the HDR Environment lighting to create the perfect Final Render Sit back and Enjoy!

The back lit up more Slight functional scoliosis through the thoracic spine I sculpted it as such because it looks cool, and I believe it can be easily justified for an almost invisible scoliosis to be magnified during the transformation to the Hulk. Certainly more easy to justify than his ripped pants staying on.

Just made my 3d print available on Sculpteo! $3000 is not the set in stone price. You may change the size and material of the print to better meet your budget. I got my white plastic print for $387 at 8 inches. I recommend going with white plastic because it's the cheapest material, but it still produces great quality. You can also paint on it which is another plus. Just to give you a better idea of how the white plastic looks, here is a photo before painting.

Status update...
Greetings ZBrushers, I would like to share with you the status of the upcoming ZBrush 4R7 for Windows and Macintosh systems, both 32-bit and 64-bit. We originally planned for this release to take place before the end of this year. As it turns out, due to the sheer volume of development involved in creating the first ever 64-bit versions of ZBrush for both Windows and Macintosh, it is taking a little longer than expected. There are effectively four versions to test -- twice as many as in previous releases. With that in mind, I feel that we should take the time to fine-tune and deliver the very best possible capstone to the 4.x series in order to allow you to gain the most benefit from the new features. We have therefore decided to postpone the release of Z4R7 from December to January. Please bear with us while we polish ZBrush 4R7. We are as eager to have these new features in your capable artistic hands, as you are to make use of them and reach higher levels of creativity. Have a wonderful Holiday Season and a Happy New Year to all! -Ofer Alon

    Make sure to get a few relaxing holiday weeks, Z-devs. If this is crunch time because of the impending release, I hope I speak for the majority here when saying delay it even further if this is the case! My best wishes to you.

Below are some rough video notes on the character workflow process used; I started early on the project and was tasked to compile some notes on the character pipeline. I am sharing these in case they might be useful to someone starting in the business etc... These are intended for intermediate to advanced users that already know their tools of trade ( maya,zbrush,photoshop etc) and were done merely with the idea to keep the same approach / workflow at developing characters for this project, so think of them as bits and pieces of information,tips and what not. Also bear in mind that some of the info might be now obsolete or less useful as newer software versions have appeared that solved some of the issues we have encountered at the time. That being said here are the links: KwjqvNXvI9w dS3iGrNVThk wTH9wVwYeBg Plk8kv15GEc yTaaf7Jv-TE FaFNBXy4JgQ yGWB8XG3nCw Also some resources i have made available for everyone to download,test and use as they see fit: zbrush brushes http://paultosca.com/wmt/zbrushes.rar photoshop brushes http://paultosca.com/wmt/ps_brushes.rar photoshop patterns http://paultosca.com/wmt/ps_patterns.rar Feel free to share the presets or videos with your friends , post them to other forums, websites etc ... I am merely trying to give back a little to the community for all these past years when i found so much free resources/info and what not on these forums. Hope this helps, Paul
