Great stuff Mastone,
I moved away from texturing in zbrush due to the poor resolution quality with creating large texture maps due to polypainting. I find it great for sculpting and the new lightbox feature is killer, although I found even when subdiving a model to the highest level, with really high res pics the fine details would not show up.
Be good to know if you have found a way around this or do you clone the texture onto the model to then tweak in PS.

Cheers,

Leon

@honest: Yes it was a placeholder, but I do think I will use it as a base texture and refine it ( just to see how that works).
@Leonlabyk: Textures in Zbrush are ( imo) a bit funky yes, but there are ways around that, you have to do a couple of testrenders in maya to get a bit of a feel on how it will look and how changes made in Zbrush affect the endresult, I personally don't like lightbox ( if that's the funky browser thingy on the bottom of the screen) , I like spotlight, but that's really buggy ( it keeps crashing on me all the time), I personally prefer Zbrush over mudbox only and purely because of the " feel" of the brush and the way the sliders woprk ( in mudbox it snaps to absolute values way bigger than I want them which results in laying down the wacompen and manually putting in a value) it feels more natural in Zbrush

@Bullet: Thanks man
@Jay: As long as you don't see a green light and a high pitch voice I think you will be okay

Soz spotlight was what I meant, forgot the name as I have not used it for about a month as I am now texturing with mudbox. I find zbrush much better in many ways and have simply gone back to mudbox for texturing.

Keep up the great work and looking forward to seeing your progress.

Cheers,

Leon

I just do not get on with zbrush texturing with all the thing it has to offer you would think it was great. Mudbox for texturing, does it use layer like photoshop?...........dave

Edit: I do like photoshop but the 3D bit is not that good (could be my graphics card) end of grip

mudbox does have layers for painting as well as sculpting. the paint layers can be imported/exported as psd layers so i would say its exactly like photoshop - with one minor difference maybe: the layers only have a opacity setting - cannot be multiplied or anything fanzy as photoshop can.

i'm pretty sure he's been on posters and in ads and stuff though, so it's possible to know who he is without watching Harry Potter at all

Yes but if you watch a poster of harry potter ...in a way you watch harry potter and have a certain interest in it... there are a lot of ads with peoples faces I couldn't remember for the life of me , only the ones that take my interest stick
