  1. Have you guys at Z-Brush actually watched this tutorial? there is no question that the guy knows what he is doing, but he does a really bad job of teaching it, it is all stream of consciousness, “ums” and “ahs” and “oh by the ways…” I have taught classes before, this is not how it is done. There is a great example in Chapter 3 at the end, when he is talking about this great anatomy book, the title of which he can’t remember, but not to worry, his friend has a copy of it. I don’t care about the book, it’s title or who his friend is, but he sure spends a lot of time talking about it. The 12 hour run time, could probably be cut down to a 1/4 of the time if anyone bothered to edit the content.

    Anyway i thought it was funny that you’re advertising it front and center on your site, as it is very badly done.

    Thought i would give you a heads up.


  2. I can’t WAIT to get some free time to look at this preview. I most likely will be buying this. I’ve wanted videos of a project start to finish (especially the texturing part!)


    This is a great tutorial – probably one of the best I have done so far. You can definitely tell the guy knows what he is talking about and that he is highly skilled in this area. It helps that he is very casual about it and is doing it in real-time. I managed to follow this perfectly and produced a character that convinced my friends that I have been doing ZBrush for years!!! Before this tutorial I saw ZBrush as a daunting and complex software, after I finished the tutorial I went back and sculpted a realistic hand on my own (using the knowledge I had gained from this particular tutorial). I was very impressed with his style of teaching. I wasn’t going to leave a comment as it not what I normally do but I was worried that Paul’s comment would put people off buying such a great tutorial piece. If he had edited his tutorials to be formal and edited out all the bits that didn’t go quite to plan I would have ended up not knowing how to resolve such problems and feeling over-whelmed. I think the best judge of a teacher is their students. I completed this tutorial and used it as an utter beginner (not even knowing what a zsphere was!!!), having completed the tutorial my confidence has grown and I have completed other complex pieces by myself. This is definitely a must buy! x
