hey polymesh!
looks like a fine start. are you planning on doing "the real modeling" in zbrush, or do you just continue from here in modo? (-it is modo right?)

I can see the works of the censorship.:rolleyes:

hahahahah... auv:argh:

zbrush would make some of this sooo much easier - but I can't help thinking of sculpting as 'cheating' in a modeling contest.

diffently see your point, oddity. but then again, then we'll have to define modeling/sculpting/painting... for example when you are doing a displament map in zbrush. -do you then paint it, like you would have done in let's say photoshop or do you model it like like i would say you do in zbrush.
in my oppinion, sculping and modeling is more or less the same.

hope it came out well and understandeble...

Don't want to hijack this thread, but zbrush sculpting and poly modeling are completely different. All yoiu need think about in zbrush is the subject, while in poly modeling you have to think just as hard about the subject, and then think about your poly flow on top of that. Poly flows can get very difficult in complex organic models.
Poly modeling is more difficult than sculpting from a technical point of view, though they are both equally as difficult artistically.

Don't want to hijack this thread -me neither...
yearh! i see your point. it's just that i never really thought about that way.

I see the point, but....

I don't think using a better tool is cheating. It still takes artistic talent to use, and it's more fun IMO.

If it can help make your work better, then by all means use it. I wouldn't want to limit or cause my self any extra head aches, when I have a way to avoid them.

But, to each his own.
