Amazing as always!


Gorgeous! And the peel UV?! Any news?


Wow… always… wow. Every new feature/update shown I’ll be able to use straight away in my workflow. Great job folks, can’t wait.

Awesome! Looks like ZModeler has been given some love this time! I’ve been wanting a more complete box modeling solution in ZB for years. And cloth dynamic?! Boo-yah!!!

This makes me very excited! I picked the perfect time to get back into ZBrush full time and dust off these old skills with the new feature. The new ZModeler abilities make me the most happy! I am going to be working on creating items for manufacturing and ZModeler (especially it’s new features) is going to be key in me getting to my end result faster! Super excited!!! I really wish I could play with it RIGHT NOW! lol! Thank you again, Pixologic! :star_struck: :clap: :tada:



I suggest pixologic to also put a renderer in real time. This will be the biggest strategy for Zbrush to be the most adored on Earth.


The dynamics excite me, love all the new possibilities you guys put forth as well as refining the tools themselves. Can’t wait to try it out.


I am going to love this release so much. I can’t wait for The cloth brushes, they look awesome. I think it’s fair to mention the work of Pablo Dobarro with the cloth brushes in Blender. We needed that stuff in ZBrush and it seems we are going to get it.



This looks amazing :open_mouth:
So keen for the cloth brushes!


Marvelous Designer is going subscription only now… Zbrush is one of the rarest companies out there that consistently does their user base a solid. You can tell that they put some serious love into this software, and each update is innovative and very exciting.

Please never change, Zbrush.


cool! :+1:

I am getting mad ! Need zbrush 21 right now ! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Cool stuff Pixo Team. Just 2 things I actually want to know, and want the most at this point from your Product… (I would happily re-pay you $800.00 in a heartbeat for.)

  1. New overhauled User Interface /UI (Simplified, and redone for the gratuitous amount of features that are quite easily forgotten, and tedious to pull out and use.)
  2. VR (Virtual Reality) support for (Index, Oculus, etc.)

Thanks for the free updates again!
