Their website does say that you can pay per image at $1 per image. I am in the opposite boat though. I could see this having a very significant effect on photogrammetry but I would need to process a few thousand images at a time which would not be very feasible with their current pricing model

To the developers. A very promising piece of software for a VFX supervisor like me. BUT, please reconsider your pricing tiers and introduce a per-image price. We are a pretty large facility, but I can only imagine needing about 1-10 images a month at the very most. It's like HDRI's - we buy them all the time, one at a time. They need to be individually billed so a producer can charge them against a particular job.

A Free Stylized Base Mesh and a Guide to Creating Busts
12 June, 2017

Senior 3D Character Artist Leslie Van den Broeck shared a free stylized base mesh you can use as a starting point. The artist is known for marvelous stylized models, so this is a really great way to dive into character art. 

After getting a lot of questions about the availability of my stylized female basemesh I decided to refine it a little bit and make it available.

Disclaimer, this is a base to start with. do not take it as reference for anatomy, proportions or anything else. its purely a startingpoint.

By downloading a pack you get a ztl. that has the meshes combined and polygroups assigned to them and a obj. file.

Make sure to check out an awesome 8-hour video by Leslie on using a mesh below:

Want more? Here is a guide on how to make a base mesh for creating stylized busts inside of ZBrush by the artist. The guide folder includes a custom ZBrush UI setup and the actual base mesh itself.

Sadly that awesome base mesh is no longer available for sale in the gumroad store. Any way or other links that we can get a copy of it?


Hi, I know this is a old post, but someone could get this mesh/guide? Thanks!
