Ah you have me reminiscing as I often do about the old days of the forum when these kinds of post were about 50/50 with the art.
Ofcoarse much of all that knowledge is now searchable and people are less likely to post tips such as this but it’s great for people starting out to see fresh posts that they would find helpful. So all power to you Mr for sharing what you know.
Sometimes I think that the forum is so big now that it realy needs a begginers area where people help each other out as they learn and those with more experience can help out from time to time.
All of us over the years are aware that you will see the “I’ve only used ZBrush for 2 hours” blurb and then some fantastically sophisticated work is trotted out which in fact has been sculpted in ZBrush using a tiny percentage of the programs depth by an extremely competant modeler with many years of experience.
Whilst this is inspiring in many others ways; it also I feel misleads those starting out and perhaps to a degree makes posting first attempts in ZBrush daunting.
Years ago everybody who was starting out posted desperate stuff with promise and that’s the one’s you know who are really starting out because the truth is ZBrush is a very complex piece of software to get to grips with if you wish to use it as your main creative tool. which many do.
So if someone is listening, Slosh has made me see realise that a begginers pool is needed at the Forum - one where those further up the tree can be lifeguards.
On top of that I’d add an old timer’s club where the post rate doesn’t move too fast for those of us who enjoy languishing more.
I don’t know what set me off - I must have made my cocoa too strong.
