"ZBrush is a new painting application with a 3D rendering engine developed by Pixologic. This powerful tool has been generating a lot of buzz in our industry and was chosen as a finalist for Game Developer Magazine's 2001 Front Line Award. Having only heard small snippets about this program, my initial impression of the ZBrush reinforces what everyone is saying about this tool -- groundbreaking."
Macworld (Winner, Eddy Award for Best Illustration Software), November 2001
"The Eddy Awards, the Macintosh industry's highest distinction for breakthrough product development and technological innovation, are given to products in many categories, honoring the top software and hardware products for business, dynamic media, video, web, publishing, graphics and developer tools.
Macworld's editors surveyed every Mac product released between November 1, 2000, and November 1, 2001, to determine our nominees and winners in each category. We recognize these products not only for their overall quality but also for their creators' willingness to lead us in new directions. These are the products that will inspire the next millennium...
Winner: When Pixologic's ZBrush 1.2 (, June 2001) debuted last year, Mac artists suddenly saw 2-D drawing jump off the screen. Unlike traditional painting programs, which treat pixels as flat dots of color, ZBrush adds a depth attribute and lets you push and pull the pixels as you would a thick layer of oil paint. An assortment of brushes and controls let you apply complex textures and realistic lighting effects to your creation."
