Hello, So a while ago when I was going overseas I bought a bundle so I had something to do on my downtime. I had purchased ZBrush Character Production, Low Res Character Production, and Character Skinning. I've worked in Maya for college but had never touched ZBrush before. So I tried jumping into ZBrush Character Production and completely failed, miserably. I had no idea what anything was in ZBrush, and the DVD mainly expected you to know what you were doing already. I was completely disappointed. So finally after getting back and a little over a year I finally told myself I'm gonna try this again but start with ZBrush 3.5 - A Comprehensive Introduction. First the plan was to not get ahead of myself, and also watch it first, then try it out. Basically I got to chapter 3, watched it, and dug in. I didn't have any reference photos, used the video model as a basis for what detail I should be on for what level, and had at it. Well, I'd just like to thank Eat3d and Michael Pavlovich for the awesome dvd so far as I think (not to be boasting) the intended purpose of the dvd shows. I know I have so much to learn and I'm still not going to move ahead till I make at least another 2-3 more heads so that I'm a little more comfortable making them. This is the first head I've ever modeled/sculpt and first time actually using ZBrush correctly. Also it took me a good amount of hours just to make this one head. Nonetheless though I'm quite excited for the rest of the DVD and wish I had gotten this DVD first way back. Thank you again.

Ahh, that is great to hear!

I'm glad you are enjoying the DVDs and you certainly seem to be making some nice progress on your sculpting skill!
