Exactly what I said up until about 6 months ago.

Since Mari 2.0 arrived:

My workflow:

ZB for lightning fast zpheres > export to Maya/Modo for refinement pulling and pushing vertices aiming for great "volume-management" (for lack of a better term) for the base mesh > ZB for dynamesh sculpting > Topogun for topology, never zbrush arghhh > Mari 2.0 for Texture painting. No mudbox.

I only watch the tutorials on Pixologic website and they do have "updated" tag on them so I assume that those are the most uptodate tutorials that won't teach me old workflow
