Well, here's my first attempt at a Grey after watching a basic tutorial on how to manipulate objects in zbrush
That's some good progress there, from my perspective. Since Sculptris is supposed to be good for getting used to the ZBrush interface, i got it some
time ago, and it took me three days of frustration to discover that I couldn't do anything with it at all. I concluded from that that ZBrush would be
a complete and total waste of my time and effort. No point in getting it if I can't make it do anything.
Same for Bryce. I got it, and it took three days of frustration (that seems to be my limit of patience) to discover that I couldn't do anything with
it at all. Wonky interface. Nothing there to tell me what this or that is supposed
to do, just a bunch of irrelevant pictures on buttons that
don't tel me anything at all. Trial and error just made me want to "fix" my computer with a really big hammer, so I gave up.
Now, I KNOW these programs can "do things", because I've seen that other people can use them to make things - it's just that I'm utterly
incapable of doing anything with them - can't even figure out how to make a basic egg shape, much less anything more complex.
SO - the progress you made here in just a day is nothing short of the mastery of a Black Art to me. Congrats!
It's frustrating, really - I get these ideas, sit down at the computer and crack my knuckles... and that's about as far as it gets. I stare at the
computer, it stares at me, I click some stuff, and the computer still just stares at me, and I finally give up and wait for someone else to make the
models i need, and they never do. Not over YEARS of checking and re-checking the internets. No interest, I guess.
Again, congrats - but keep that creepy alien outta MY room! I have a computer, and I ain't afraid to whack stuff with it - gotta get some
out of it!
