hey guys, wanted to share this with ya’ll its a video demonstrating how to draw characters and creatures in mudbox,...wait what...yes drawing, although this feature have been possible since the introduction of paint layers(2009-10) users weren’t aware this was possible, i came up with this idea a while back of drawing in mudbox and with the release of 2011 around the corner and its sweet new painting tools such as dodge,burn, contrast and such accompanied by blending modes makes this feature even more powerful, you can also use this as you would regular paint layers and send them to Photoshop to use its existing tools, or finish it directly in mud.
it feels so natural even more so than Photoshop, as i’m able to zoom/pan and use the mirror option to do symmetrical drawings, and take advantage of the steady stroke and stamps on my brushes to get a wide variety of styles.
you can aslo, save screen images of your character sculpts and draw over it to explore designs and such with-out leaving mudbox.
as mentioned in the video, ill be doing a series of these in which i take a character from concept to completion with-out leaving mudbox...keep an eye out.
