Digital modelling and sculpting has come a long way in the last decade with ever evolving programs such as Zbrush as well as the leaps and strides in digital printing. You can now sculpt a figure digitally and have the detail replicated in a fine quality print.
I have been using and learning Zbrush for over a year now and once I got my head around the UI I found it a lot of fun. I have had a few of my models printed and it's great to see it in your hand as a physical object.
A new and exciting range of figures sculpted digitally, coming soon.
The latest and final update to Zbrush before version 5. With new tools for low poly modelling and a keyshot special version and bridge is released.
