Oh man, thank you so much for the reply and the kind words!
When I started this thread I was glued to the computer for two days waiting for feedback that never came.
My background is the opposite. I started learning 3ds Max 3 years ago and then started playing around with Zbrush and fell in love.
I had no traditional art skill, but I’ve been studying as much as I can trying to get there. I recently started getting into clay sculpture
and I’m right about to finish up my first go at it. A 1/2 scale Patrick Stewart head in medium chavant. It took forever, but I just
had to get used to the tools and the feel of clay. Now I love it! So I just ordered a bunch of armature wire, more tools, 12 lbs of
green chavant, a turn table and some sculpting dvds. Should be here next week! Kind of odd that I’m learning from the outside
in, going from digital to traditional, but its just so fun and even relaxing at times. And now that I’ve had some time with clay
I see exactly what you’re saying about the disconnected feeling of the Wacom. Nothing beats having the piece right there
in your hands.
Anyways, thanks again man. Really glad you stopped by and I’ll post some more stuff here soon!
