If you go for Unity and Biomes, as you wrote in your article, please do support Vegetation Studio Pro. Your work is awesome, can't wait to see it on the store.

Great breakdown of the process and optimization, thanks for sharing.

This article just not only provides great tools for level design. It's also useful vocabulary to express ideas with our team.

The 2018 ZBrush Summit is Coming
19 July, 2018

The ZBrush Summit is almost here. A three-day event happening September 28 through 30 in Los Angeles, CA will feature presentations from top ZBrush artists, the Live Sculpt-Off, interviews, contests, the annual ZBrush Awards, and more.


In addition to the exclusive workshops, the ZBrush Summit will be offering a full slate of live presentations that will be streamed LIVE around the world. Of course, the best seats in the house are in the studio (there’s nothing like being there in person!) but no matter where you are, you can be in on the action. You can even communicate directly with the presenters via social media and possibly have your questions answered live.

You can watch the event unfold during a LIVE stream and then vote for the winners.

This year, Furio Tedeschi is being recognized as a LIVE ZBrush Sculpt-Off Hall of Fame Champion. After winning his first title, he has successfully defended it the two following years. Congratulations!
