Im not giving up. But I was thinking about what u said about trying to learn too much too fast and I think you're right. I have really thrown myself in at the deep end with zbrush and been trying to cram learn. I need to be more patient.

your maya modelling is good. and the forms are coming on in zbrush, particularly the skull

I was working on this character. But after an hour or so of work, i went to load him up in zbrush to carry on (this was about a week ago) and zbrush just kept crashing. Dont know why. But this is an image I got at the end of the first session.

Didnt you have a problem with poly count in zbrush, may be you have to change the settings again to bring a high poly count item in?

But I hadnt uved him, so I knew it was a bit of a non-starter anyway. Today I uved just his hat (im not very experienced with uv-ing) to try an experiment. I wasnt sure if you could both texture in photoshop and polypaint, kind of simultaneously. But I realised today you can, so I guess my next step is to uv the rest of the character and keep my fingers crossed z brush accepts him next time. Think I feel some modern warfare 2 coming on.

yeah. I had had some problems when i was trying to go from level 5 to level 6 on a couple of the subtools. Really elongated waiting time between strokes and visible outcome, and sometimes just plain failing to up the level. But as I hadnt uv'd him I knew, like I say, it was a bit of a non-starter. I was still wondering about colour maps, and the whole uvlayout thing so it was almost 'a sign' I guess, that I ran into trouble. It also gave me the chance to add some more edge loops in maya, as some of the geometry was very light and struggling to take much/any detail at the mid-subdivision levels.

Totally unrelated to the point of your thread (but your model is looking good so far!) but I was just wondering if we've ever done battle online, you on Xbox or PS3?

ps3. I go under the name 'cambodgienne'. There are a couple of pictures in my room by a famous french artist, I cant remember off the top of my head by who, one is a sketch of a dancer called 'la cambodgienne', i thought it would be easy to remember...

ps...dango. I see your tagline under your name 'master of the 32 bit floating point.', so ...you are kind of related to this thread, even if your message isnt :bow:

oh. When I was reading about displacement maps, I read you could export them in the 32 bit floating point variety...
