@The_Mongrel_Dabbler Welcome to the competition. Trust me, doing a challenge like this really pushed you as an artist, at least that’s what I’ve found.


I will probably warm up with 7 pieces a week to make sure I am perfectly ready for the D Day !


I can’t tell from the rules, but is compositing different render passes in a program like photoshop allowed, or does the render of to come straight out of Zbrush and submitted?

This is covered by rule #10, which specifies the only software that may be used during the competition.

  1. You can only use the following software during the competition: ZBrush, ZBrushCore, ZBrushCoreMini, or the ZBrush 2020 Trial Version.
