    Thank you for all this info!
    Just found this website days ago, and it’s marvelous!
    As a long time polygon modeller, I’ve been having a difficult time understanding the completely different concept of zbrush modelling (i already sculpt in mudbox and blender).
    Here you have everything really well explained, so now i can start to say i can work with azrush as well 😀
    Cheers!!
