Purchase and Upgrade Schedule

Dear ZBrush Artists,

[COLOR=Silver]As you may already know ZBrush 4.0 Win and ZBrush 4.0 Mac will both be officially released for download on 8/9/10! (9th August 2010)

We sincerely trust that this exciting version of ZBrush will become a major part of your day to day artistic work-flow, opening you to an ever expanding world of creativity.

ZBrush was first released 10 years ago as a tool by artists for artists and we have certainly come a long way since then!

Our vision has always been to develop new and innovative features that push the boundaries of what has been previously possible in digital art, so we are thrilled to offer this new breakthrough 10th anniversary ZBrush 4.0 Win or Mac version for pre-order right now! (see the details below)

Here is a sample of beta tester images created with ZBrush 4 beta!
(When Z4 is released, beta testers will have their own threads here at ZBrushCentral so that you may communicate with them and learn from their Z4 experiences!)

On the second row of images this one: (check it out):sunglasses:

I noticed the cape is semi transparent and was wondering if it’s the model or material or a combination of both. It would be nice to have a tut on how it was done.



Purely awesome.

Again on the second row of images this one: (check it out):sunglasses:

It would really be nice if this is a from start to finish tutorial on how it was made.
Also the grass on the base looks real - is this a new ZBrush tool?



This is like falling in love all over again! Here’s why I love the concept of Shadow box!



SpaceMan:We can hope that it will be a new material in zbrush,i dreamed a lot of that…:eek:
also ANOTHER SPECIALITY is the SUBSURFACE MATERIAL i think…zbrush 4 have sub surface material and it can seen on the watch material in gallery and in another material…can’t wait to see more videos
Best of luck in SIGGRAPH…
also shadow box ROCKS…:eek:

That looks amazing! Just Wow! I am also very excited about this!

OMG this is F*CKING AWESOME!! :smiley: :smiley: :smiley:

ShadowBox looks insane! I can’t wait to do some hard surface models.
Best Render makes me drool!! Hair, SSS, Composition, Alpha Transparency, DoF, it’s all there!!
MatchMaker, i can already come up with a thousand possibilities.

and did anyone else noticed the Timeline slider the first pic ([edit] it says ‘camera’ by it so idk actually)!? hahaha this is sweet!

Pixologic kicks ass.

I agree with you Fil…shadow box would be awesome for actually cutting holes in meshes quicker :slight_smile:

Yep more videos :smiley:

It looks really great so I need to be hibernated in my refrigerator 'cos cant wait one more week !
