    Hi…Zrush stands above all the other 3d applications in highly detailed 3d modeling and texturing. And I like the production pipeline it supports..so no wonder why 3d artists find it the number 1 tool for high-end modeling. This is a great achievement…and Rick you have made eyes of the world turn towards you and ZBrush as well..You are an inspiring genius..keep up the good work!
