Has the ZBrush matcaps been uploaded to a file repository for download? I currently don't have ZBrush or Photoshop.

The Matcap texture shown in Blender comes with the HD version of the tutorial and isn't available externally.

All the matcaps you see in ZBrush are available either by default with ZBrush or for free from the ZBrush download center.


Hope that helps!
