Mudbox straight lines around appendages

Hi all. I just recently started using Mudbox, and am wondering if there is any way to make straight lines around appendages. I am working on a character that I need to make a series of rings going around each finger very similar to this Giger Painting I've tried figuring out a way using curves, but I can't quite get them straight enough. Thanks for any help.
Cheers

Thanks Oglu,
I am going to go that route for the finer rings, but at the base of the fingers, I want to make the bigger ridges, plus I'd like to know if anyone knows a trick for doing it in mudbox just for future reference.

i would do the same...
if you displace it in mudbox you should get what you are looking for...

maps --> sculpt using map

or freeze that area and flood it inwards...
but i would paint the freeze into a texture and load it if needed as mask...
right klick onto the texture --> freeze from selected
