Excellent Book and Concept; Needs Just a Bit More Depth 28. November 2011
Von Nicholas - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book is an excellent companion for an intermediate and up zBrush artist. It goes beyond the usual "instructibles" (for which there are already plenty available, so this doesn't clutter the space) and delves into showing you the styles, techniques, tips and tricks used by other, very experienced zBrush users, all of them veritable experts all their own.

There are the needed how-to steps, but also includes interviews with the profiled artists, including background information that you don't usually see in similar books (such as what their preferential brushes or tools are, what other software they use in conjunction with zBrush, unique perspectives and methodologies, etc.), as well as recommendations that can improve your own workflow.

Excellent does not necessarily mean perfect, however. Part of this book's strength also contributes to its weakness. For example, while it isn't a "how-to manual" type of book, some the how-to's are still so sparse that you're left wanting more. An example is a featured "expert" who uses zBrush for printed art (instead of the usual film or game pipelines), but not much detail is provided on that particular genre and what specifics and "secrets" can be gleamed from the perspective of that medium (as opposed to say, the silver screen or a computer monitor or a TV set for console games).

Another beef is the interviews, which seem contrived and generic, applied to almost all profiled "experts" featured in the book, and quickly beefing it up in a way that most magazines are already doing all the time. Something that should be meatier in this type of book instead of a "one size fits all" type of interview questions. It leaves you wishing there were more insightful "secrets" to be had.

On the other hand, these do provide enough to show you how different people approach and utilize zBrush in their own style, and how you can learn from them and apply to your method. Per8haps, in whetting your appetite enough, this only shows the book is in the right track and pushes the right buttons in addressing what its readers really want. It's just that the reader feels wanting and ends up not quite getting there and needing more.

On top of that, the paper used immediately warps quite a bit even after only the first day's use, which is very odd as it is something I've never seen in other books before. That said, this book is more like a course guide and led me to first suspect this is a "self-published" type of book (in that it isn't from a major publishing house but one of the authors' affiliated company; for which there's absolutely nothing wrong with that), which for me would have been a positive in giving an "insider" type of content that general publishing houses may not have sanctioned.

Overall, these are mostly nitpicks but I highly recommend it for inspiration as well as to add fresh insights (even if sparse in some areas) to your 3D and digital sculpting library.

Beautiful book may best suit the moderately experienced ZBrush artist 27. Mai 2012
Von A. Reid - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
It probably ought to go without saying that if you know Zbrush inside and out, you're going to get less value from this book than people who are relative newcomers or who have not moved beyond the superficial in their relationship with this product. There are undoubtedly some "Tips, Techniques, and Insights for Users of All Abilities", but there is probably a sweet spot in the middle where readers will get most benefit. True newcomers may be lost by the lack of foundational instruction (no fault of the book that these are missing; this isn't a basic "how to") while true experts will have twigged to some of these approaches themselves. If you hit that sweet spot, this book could be fantastic to help you make masterpieces with this flexible digital sculpting tool. Otherwise, it might fire a desire to reach that sweet spot or, if you've already passed it, tweak a few new ideas.

The book does have inspirational value beyond its instruction. The artwork is gorgeous and gives some idea of what ZBrush can do in the hands of a master, and the interviews with the artists are interesting support material. It does seem like the title might better have reflected this mix if the book were called "Interviews with ZBrush Experts: with tips etc." As it is now, it's altogether too focused on one aspect.

Not for Beginners 19. Januar 2012
Von booksy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
I got this book because it said that it had tips and techniques for "users of all abilities," but it's definitely not for beginners. Zbrush is a very complex program with a very steep learning curve (at least for me) and this book is not suited for learning how to use the program in any way. I'm still trying to learn the simplest tools and for the techniques here, a good working knowledge of Zbrush is required.

For more advanced users of the program, however, the tips look fairly good. Each chapter portrays a different artist, who details one technique that he uses in the creation of a 3D object. It's not completely step-by-step, but there are a lot of (tiny) illustrations and most of the artists do a good job of explaining their steps. Most of the techniques require extra software or plug-ins, too, so keep that in mind.

Each chapter also includes a portfolio of work by the artist, and this portion of the book is really inspiring. The work is really incredible and really made me want to try to learn and use Zbrush more.

There is an "Insights" section which was pretty bland. A lot of the questions seemed pointless or asked about functions of Zbrush or other software that I don't have or know about. The short "resources" section in each chapter was very redundant, most of these artists use the exact same websites for their list so I think it should have just been in a bibliography section at the end.

Each artist gets a little "info" section also, which is basically their resume, which makes the whole tone of the book seem more like it's a vanity portfolio of artists looking for work. I did like the little section where they detail what hardware/software they use with Zbrush, though.

A huge downside for me was the size of the book. It's an odd shape and the portfolio pictures are really quite small. Although the artwork is beautiful, I would have loved to see it in a much larger, coffee-table size format in order to get the most out of it.

Although this book had some good tips in it, I'm really not sure that there isn't anything in here that is not readily available on the internet or even on Zbrush's own website, and because of the small pictures and the way it kind of reads like a portfolio/resume compilation of artists plus some tips, I'm giving it the two stars. If I could I would have given it two-and-a-half stars. For the price, I simply can't recommend it for anything other than looking at the pictures (possibly with magnifying glasses) and looking for an artist to hire for 3D work.

Could have been better 23. April 2013
Von Brad Teare - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
This book is an adequate addition to your library if you have substantial background with ZBrush. In no way is this book suitable for newbies. I wish the illustrations were better integrated with the text and that the explanations were more logical. In short, this is a good book to round out your library but will not suffice as your only reference.
Cofee Table Book 13. Februar 2013
Von GameMaker - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
This is a neat book for fans of Digital Character type art. It's really a coffee table book much more than a "how to" type of book. The book is filled with really nice, high quality (and impressive) character art, and in between the pictures, is little blurbs about the artists, or Q&A with the artists, or in a few cases some brief little "techniques" sections, where the artists describes something unique that they do at a fairly high level.

I like it, but like I said buy it for inspiration and as a one-time-read. It's not the type of book that you're going to pick up when you want to learn how to do something specific, and even less of a book that will help you learn ZBrush.
