As ye inflate so shall ye grow
I’ve fiddled with Sculptris Pro mode for 3 evenings and only tonight realised that the inflate brush in Sculptris Pro mode will actually grow continually according to the surface normals with repeating circular strokes. I recorded it in a picture to remind me. Also testing out switching between secondary and primary colours when painting in sculptress pro mode by holding the alt key. Erick, when you get back to Zbrushing you’re gonna love it I’m sure. Becoming fluid with the new features always takes some time it’s true. If you haven’t yet entered the room of coloured cones you’re in for most esoteric yet strangely satisfying experience . Ej , thank you. For snake hook roots I visit an understanding doctor.

Thanks folks :-) Attached some quick notes on the SnakeHook Cactus Brush as well as a Move Elastic Brush adjusted for working with low Rez quad meshes from ZRemesher (not for Sculptris Pro triangular meshes) . Whilst this brush is good for shape design adjustments it’s particularly good for adjusting mouth shapes with good loops e.g if you have created a suggested mouth bag to drive the zremesher process with regard achieving circular loops around the mouth. From a side profile it will help you grab the nasal septum and the philtrum to help with the correct curvature and projection of the top lip. From the front it will help with smile/frown shapes as well as pinching the mouth closed. For more fulsome lips the mouth can be further closed or enhanced by dabbing the inflate brush with a low focal shift -64 from a front view. SnakeHook Cactus Notes The Polypaint color blending I thought was cool :-) As a by the way..... Whilst always fond of the Spherical Brush I found that it's highly versatile when used in Sculptris Pro Mode - give it a whirl and see what you think?!!. Yours etc, Boozy.

Inside A sphere
Being that is is the season for spheres, my Sculptris Pro first test . ZBrush 2018 and Keyshot. Below are my initial notes that I jotted down from my first play with Sculptris Pro mode, perhaps they may be useful to some. Avoid the the temptation to get stuck in Sculptris Pro mode - to get drawn in to detailing makes global adjustments harder as the work progresses. As great as Sculptris Pro mode is remember subdivisions and why they are useful for bigger design changes. Use the traditional brushes to their strengths in combination with Sculptris Pro Think about sculptris for fast volume creation and things it does that exceeds the traditional brushes in performance, behaviour and creative freedom- noses being one. Convert medium detail Sculptris Pro sculpts to Zremeshed meshes to avoid surface chatter - add Sculptris Pro details only when design adjustments are finalized. If you use Sculptris Pro for volume builds and medium detail sculpts you don’t need to get hung up about switching out of Adaptive mode if you intend to convert to ZRemesh . When you’re ready to add final tighter details with Sculptris Pro , Adaptive mode again is fine. Finessing polygon distribution by switching out of Adaptive mode to manual settings is largely a wasted discipline if you intend to convert your medium detail sculpts to Zremesh. Yours etc, Boozy

Tantric Egg
Ah the Spring, when birds do sing, hey ding a ding a ding. More Shadowbox play except that this time I decided to make a custom menu that effectively makes a kind of separate working environment solely for shadowbox work. Little tip for airbrush painting in ZBrush - set your standard brush to rgb , use the gradient alpha , set the stroke mode to drag rectangle and set your brush scale to dynamic so you can get really big sizes needed for smooth gradients.

Polly Frame's Perambulations
Knacki, thank you - much appreciated. With an interest in ZBrush as 3D visual synthesizer as well as a sculpting tool I decided to play using the facilities of booleans to create a BPR render that reads like a loose crosshatch sketch using ZBrush's polyframe settings (Transform Palette + Preferences>Draw) whilst utilizing the poly structure and polygroups of the subtracting forms in a Boolean operation as a means of drawing. Also used > Tool (subtool)>display properties> polygons draw size - to create effects where the linear division between polygons can be widened and also represented in a bpr render mask. I'd like to explore the possibilities of this more as well as other features of 4r8. What, I asked myself whilst doodling, if polyframe settings could allow for further settings beyond the representation of the actual polygonal structure by including functionality that allowed for further pattern and abstracted divisions with regard their polygonal representation? Fanciful thoughts soon gripped me that effects of grain and noise were also possible by the fracturing of these linear divisions of the polyframe settings as were polyframe setting for outer lines only - outer lines to concentric center etc etc Yours etc, Boozy
