“I bought a Porsche last year. Today, the new model came out and guess what… they gave it to me for free… full option and all… . How cool is that!!!”
I was awestruck when I started working with the new ZBrush - I needed to flesh out a new Beast character for “The Thin Veil of Reality” and with all these new features at hand it was a great experience. Again, technical barriers are lifted, giving our imagination and creativity unprecedented freedom.
Betatesting Z4R2 was awesome!
Thank you so much Team Pixologic

A Great Collaboration:
For this next project, I had the honour to work closely with a very talented artist/ZBrush artist, fellow betatester and good friend Julian Kenning (ZBC name Julian_K). Not only is he a great visual artist but he is also a great composer. He was kind enough to create a piece of music especially for me to go along with the videos. I love to bring something extra to the presentation of my videos and it was great to “hear” this piece come to life while I worked on the vids. I need to thank Julian for that, and for the good advice and constructive criticism on my works.
