This is a work of art. It goes far beyond the boundaries set by the original SoaSE staff. Interestingly, however, your work so far has all been based around these organic structures. Do you have experience with more "industrial" texturing? Will all of the races in Last Stand be "organic"? Or will you have a species that uses tech more in line with the TEC?

Of course. Xin have the organic theme, but the Remnant will have a completely different, tech/junkyard theme. The Hegemony, on the other hand, will have a distinct organic, elegant flow, but tech texturing. The mod will be split into three episodes, so that people don't have to wait another two years for it to be done. ;)

I just wonder if you are a "professional" game modder/ modeler/ texturer. Because all your work so far seems like most other game developers couldnt have done it any better. Everything is simply breath-taking. Keep up the gorgeous work.

Got two questions:

1. Can ZBrush be used to model/texture for any game? (e.g If I were to make a vehicle model for CS:S or Battlefield 2142, would it be able to work in that game provided that the number of polys were O.K?)

2. How did you learn how to use this program? Did you take classes? Did you learn by yourself using books/online tutorials?

I learned primarily by using online tutorials and plain old tinkering. Online tutorials are essential for getting the hang of time-saving stuff, so I recommend them, especially the Digital Tutors series, they are almost as good as taking classes.

You can use ZBrush to model/texture for any game, however usually you need a dedicated 3D modelling program in order to do other stuff which may be required by the game engine, such as assigning tangents, rigging the skeleton for animation etc. ZBrush is primarily used to texture existing models and add detailing, although you can make a model from scratch using ZBrush only.

Hi, excellent model and video, it looks awsome.
Can i ask how much ZBrush cost and where you purchased it as i would like to get into modeling and texturing.

Check out their official website: Pixologic.com

Keep in mind the modelling process is quite different with ZBrush compared to the conventional 3D applications.
