ZBrush and LW animation goof

I did this in about an hour this morning with ZBrush. I hate the interface, but love what it can do. I know it isn't much but maybe someone will think its worth a look. ZB really has potential.

this is a must see for lw/zb users. I found it really helpful

haha, i guess it.

yea guys, i had seen all that. just that i din get the result so detail as they all do. or should i say, i din get the sharp edges when i on my displacement map.

by the way, what is your opinion on using normal map or displacement map? i mean, when to use what?

thanks for sharing the links guys

Normal map for Games, Real Time 3D work, and Displacement maps for hi-res quality/animation work would be my workflow.

i dabbled with both, nothing to deep, but here are some screens. One thing I havent done is try the normal map with the normals plugin. one of these days. shaders dont work with fprime so I havent tried.
