What /is/ zbrush? What is it for? Is it just for sculpting an already created model? I'm a newb, just been working in blender so far, but I'm curious since I see it mentioned a lot.
you start from a shape (from a library that can be expanded) and shape it like clay into super high detail meshes tham can be exported in a lowerpoly mesh with a normalmap simulating the highpoly verticlessorry im drunk

zbrush is solely for high levels sculpting (millions of polygons).you can sculpt in blender as well, but you need a good grasp of the controls.however zbrush have a big learning curve
>>529328But you could earn upwards of 120k a year as a freelancer.
>>529316If you upload any of your tutor4u (or any tutorial) work to a webzone (deviantart, furaffinity, whatever) PLEASE credit the authorsFucking HATE seeing on art sites when some faggot will upload the tutor4u cup or bear and post "I'm new to Blender, I just made this bear! =)"No, no you didn't make it, you followed a cook book recipe and perfectly replicated someone else's creation. Anyway, Zbrush is like blender's sculpt mode but imagine if a ton of people being paid real dollars were working on it to improve it, and it had a huge community making and selling improvements (brushes, textures, automated features), and so on; that's Zbrush
>>529332I thought the tutor4u stuff was actually common knowledge, I see it around all the time, OP of this thread by the way. And interesting, thanks for the answer! I actually haven't worked with sculpt mode for blender yet, still something to get to.
>>529316Is it a waste of time to do small things that are not organics in z brush over max?For example. For arch viZ sometimes I wanr a new lamp or funky sofa or chair, I can do these things in max but have never tried zbrush. With experience is whipping something out with zbrush faster? I don't mind learning if it will save me time in the future.
