Hello, I've just purchased and gone through most of the "Zbrush 4 - Character Production" training DVD.  I must say I thoroughly enjoyed it and it has taught me a lot.  However, I am currently at the texturing stage and I want to use lightbox to apply my skin textures.  Problem being, however, is that I have no images like in the tutorial of the different camera shots from all the angles perspectives of a person.  Google doesn't seem to have much at all...  Why not just do myself?  Well, the body type I'm doing is much different from my own and I dont feel like asking anyone to take their shirt off etc and let me take pictures of them so I can use their body for a fat over-sized cyclops. Sticking out tongue

Anyway, are there any resources for this kind of thing or am I stuck having to find someone willing to let me take a ton of pics of them half naked?

Thanks for the help.

25 views...  hrm I really hope this doesn't turn into the "Texturing the Dozer"  2 threads down with 8000+ views and no answer!  Laughing out loud

Any advice on the matter would be great.  I am an amateur and entirely new to this.

 

This is the model I'm working on if it inspires anyone to help.  Still a WIP on the detailing as you can see on the hands/ arms, legs/feet, but almost there..

Well, I managed to just texture it myself from scratch and it turned out much better then I anticipated.  Zbrush is a pretty amazing program alright, I'm quite happy with the results so far.  Still have work to do on the scar so ignore that.  Anyway, I managed without Spotlight (sorry I got confused in my first post and mislabeled it Lightcap when I meant Spotlight)
