I realize it's been quiet here - NDA's have been cramping my blogging. I did grab a moment to try out the free 3d program Sculptris. I have never done 3D before and I didn't even bother with any tutorials - just started pulling and pushing. I have to admit - I kind of loved it. I hope to continue with Sculptris and eventually head into Zbrush. This stuff is too fun.
The paint job was done in Photoshop CS3 which doesn't take advantage of the 3D paint abilities of CS5. Time to upgrade I think!
