yeah z-brush is awesome... this is my first sculpt (finally, i know) using one of the best programs ever created. many thanks goes out to ansgar/erdgeist who helped me out on this. because i am still very new to all that 3d polymesh, retopo stuff he provided help and information on the task and together we actually managed to finish a prop model. it's a totem modelled after a concept i did a while ago. ta-da, hope you like it.
