Default Zbrush Character Creation Book

For those interested, theres a 'new' book available called Zbrush character creation. I got my copy today, and to be honest if you are into your Zbrush work combining it with Maya this one should be for you, it really is like a couple of steps up from the Zbrush user manual, and if you are into characters then definately get it. It goes over some real simple stuff right thru to some nice advanced user features, and it comes with a dvd with files and movies!

hell I better start charging for the plug here LOL, anyways go and get it, its better than wanting a monkey!
