Would like to point out that “this thing we do”, has two levels.
The artist working on his particular project, and the people that
do it for a living to whom results and time are extremely important.
Both come here in various guises.
The artist on his own, with time to spare and his own personal sense of
artistic integrity chooses to use and “exploit” those tools that enable
him to express his views.
The person doing it for a living approaches it differently.
Very often he is working with software that the firm for which
they work prefer.
There is also the dirty problem of deadlines.
If there is anything I think we can agree on ,is that there are many
programs that do basically the same thing.
I think we can also agree that if you have a favorite you tend ot stick up
for it here.
What we all 100 percent agree is that zbrush is a fantastic program
that appeals to both the artist and the “worker bee”
The posts in this forum reflect the views and problems and joys of both sides
of the aisle.
My own opinion has always been. I look at the finished product.
If I like it, I like it, congratulations to the creator.
If I don’t and it has an element that looks like something
I can use, I will investigate it.
I don’t care what created it, with the bottom line being I am told what did it.
To submit a program that was basically created in, say Maya, and purported
to be Zbrush only is misleading to us all.
Poser, Vue, Maya, Max, Modo, Xsi, Zbrush,Xbrush, Ybrush, are just tools.
What was the question again?
I made this post long so Tartan would not feel bad:D
