I just saw a video of ZBrush demo. I know. Where have I been? Actually, I've heard of it long time ago, but this is the first time I've seen the features demoed. To say I was impressed was an understatement.
It is, without a doubt, an extremely cool way to model. The comparison to sculpting is very apt. Except, it has way much more tools than traditional sculpting. It was an eye opener, to say the least. On some sections, it certainly looked like magic to me.
I'll be checking it out once I'm through with my carving project. I'm not much of a sculptor, but carving and scuplting are related, right?
