I run a school animation club and one of my rules is that no child does something in my classroom on a Friday lunchtime they can’t reasonably do at home at the weekend instead. We use cheap digital cameras for stop motion, and Blender and Sculptris software.
Which brings me to my point. I’ve seen you’re starting a tutorial series on ZBrush. Great idea. But given that the program doesn’t come cheap, why don’t you opt to do one on Sculptris instead? It would be a great introduction to the ideas, which everybody could then try out, regardless of how much they have to spend. Andy, via email
Claire replies Thank you Andy, that’s an excellent suggestion. ZBrush is an industry standard tool, so it’s important that we feature it. However, Sculptris looks like an affordable way for artists to discover 3D art techniques and is definitely something we’ll look into featuring in the future. What other software are readers using that you’d like to see workshops on? Let me know!
