|One word describes this product, Fantastic! Back in the
old days when the earth was young, I taught prospective teachers to
"teach." I spent many hours describing how to present material.
When called upon to review "teaching products," I tend to look at
them from the instructor angle as well as the student angle. This 2
DVD set with 6 hours of instruction is so comprehensive that it
actually seems to have more than 6 hours worth of material.

I highly recommend this title if you're really serious about learning ZBrush. It is so jam-packed with useful stuff, that after watching the first dvd I was modelling like a man possessed. A few weeks later I thought it would be a good idea to watch them again, and realised that I had never got around to watching the second dvd! Imagine my delight .. another three hours of solid gold tuition. My work has gone from strength to strength. A few of my ZB pics are in my gallery if you wanna see. My only issue with Paula's review is the repetition of the myth of how complicated ZBrush is. It's different from other programs, and it's very complex, but that's not the same as complicated. The program is very logical, rich and beautifully designed. Once you get the concept of 2.5D in your noggin, and learn where the main tools are, your progress then depends entirely on your own efforts and abilities. The program doesn't hold that progress back at all.
I was not repeating a myth but my own and others experience. It is complicated for some people while for others it is not. Complexity is not a problem. I agree with your differentiation. I have used many 3D programs and I had infinite trouble learning ZBrush. The point I was trying to make is that for someone who found ZBrush complicated, this DVD opened the door to it. Now I can use ZBrush comfortably and it is no longer complicated. This DVD did it all.
yup ive seen these, they are brilliant, as im just learning zbrush myself! my problem was you definatly need 512 ram to play them..so i had to borrow a freinds laptop! zbrush is a totally amazing organic moddeler and these dvds are definatly worth having!!
