I am a traditional sculptor who works in the toy and collectable market and I am currently learning Zbrush. I wanted to say thanks so much for your dvds, they are fantastic! Great dvd design/navigation and your narration and teaching is clear and concise. I have all the ones you have done and I ordered your newest one last week. Soon as I received the email from Kurv announcing it I knew I had to get it asap! It should be here this week and I cant wait!
I am still fresh to Zbrush but thanks to your dvds I am making great strides in my learning. I am floored by the work I see on this forum and I hope I can soon achieve the skills necessary so I can also sculpt some awesome Zbrush creations. Im including a pic of one of my first Zbrush projects Im working on. Just a generic alien. I still have lots to learn but I think I’m slowly getting the hang of it. Hope you like it.
Thanks for the kind words John and I’m glad you found the 1st DVD useful. Its always rewarding to see what someone has produced as a result.
Sounds like you have a Job I’d kill for myself, I’m confident that it wont take you long to start to implement those trad sculpting skills into ZBrush. The stuff on Volume 2 will certainly help with that (along with practice of course.)
In volume 1 I cover the whole interface and toolset, so yes you could follow along easily. Althouhg obviously you’ll get much more out of it once the mac version is out. (I think someone mentioned about the new year???) Volume 2 is a project disk and you can follow along bareing in mind I use a combination of the old and new brushes. Also once I go to HD geometry at the latter part ofteh DVD you couldn’t follow along with that bit in V2.
Hopefully that helps if you need further clarifitaion let me know.
thanks,Just being able to get started with the interface and tools would be great:lol: So volume 1 seems like a good base for me,then if i’m lucky the mac version 3 will be out,in time for me to start on volume 2
Hi, I’d like to buy these dvds in downloadable way, but I have trouble with my credit card, your site (kurv’s site) tells me I have a not valid card, but it had worked with other sites.
What’s wrong ?
Do you support Visa Electron ?
There’s a coupon for a discount ?
Please, answer soon, I have just holydays to study !!!
Thanks in advance.
Baz: Aurick mentioned a little while back here on ZBC ‘unofficially’ if memory serves correctly. (If it doesn’t then I’m in the doggy doo doo lol) Anything else I am told in confidence about ZBrush has to stay a state secret. Not that I’ve heard a thing about the mac release anyway as i don’t own a mac.
thedust: I’m glad you got it cleared up for you. I hope you find the DVD’s informative to you. If there is anything you or anyone else would like to see covered later in the series do not hesitate to say and I’ll do my best to include it once time allows
Thanks I’m glad you liked them, sorry for to being able to reply sooner but I’ve been away working for the past month. That matcap was one I found here at ZBC somewhere a while back (It may well have been in the matcap thread), so no it wasn’t one of mine. I keep a selection of matcaps both those of my own and ones I am currenty using in my start up folder for materials to save me time. I think in one of the DVD’s I did touch on who did some of the matcaps if memory serves correctly.
(Incidentally my current start up selection is about 80% different lol). I’m a big beliver that if something works well, there’s no need to change it. So if a matcap is a good one, then there’s no point re-inventing the wheel. There have been some truely astounding matcaps gave away here on ZBC by ZBrush users, so I’d recommend having a look about for them.
