Can’t wait!!! I watch it from Europe…the following Monday is pretty brutal, but well worth it…every time.

Congrats on the top-row btw! :smiley:

That’s nice and all but nothing to get excited about when you’re in europe.
What about presentations that are streamed?

Have you seen the videos from last year? That was all streamed. Loads of great stuff!

Yea saw it all. And it was great. That’s why i want to be excited about this year’s streamed content :).

i’m waiting

Shame I can’t go.

Hopefully they announce what we all hope they will :slight_smile:

ZBrush V5!!!:smiley:

If you’re ever in New York look me up Pixologic. Sucks being on the other side of the continent when things like this go down. Nothing ever seems to happen on this side. I doubt I’ll be able to go but have a blast and I look forward to streaming it.

Such a big lineup can’t wait . Will there be a Pixologic demonstration? Always enjoy seeing Paul Gaboury and Joseph Drust work their magic.Always fun and intuitive.

SO EXCITED!!! What a great line-up!

It’s finally happening! I am Finally Going to Hollywood
to see Pixologic, Gnomon School, and many ZBrush
members for the first time in 15 years volunteering for
the community! ZBrush Summit, HERE I COME!
What a dream come true! ‪
