Me! I’ve bought it. It does have a strange workflow at first but you’ll get used to it and after a while it even starts making sense.
I’m planning to use it for landscapes and environments mainly, I’m not that much into characters and creatures although that seems to be the main thing it’s used for. I’m still learning, haven’t really produced anything final yet but it’s fun to use and only crashed twice since I’ve had it. And that was in the beginning when I didn’t know what I was doing.
I don’t really like hires modeling, so for me it’s great - I can do something with just a few polygons to give it a rough shape and then add all the detail in zbrush. Here’s a model I’m working on right now…
Still work in progress. Haven’t finished detailing the bottom area. Plus later on I’m going to use projection master (sounds like projection painting, haven’t tried it yet) to add some even more detailed displacement for the bark.
So it’s not just for adding bits of detail here and there, it can completely replace most of your ‘usual’ modeling. Plus it lets you do stuff that’s otherwise impossible to model!
