I purchased access to the ZBrush course as soon as it was available. I have completed all modules and am extremely pleased. Unlike the majority of the materials available on disk, which are primarily excellent, this course manages to do things the others do not. Each step is clearly described in such a way that I can repeat the process easily, not wondering what the narrator is doing different. ie, using a Wacom tablet while I am using a mouse. Questions are promptly answered, and in the case of my asking about setting Wacom properties, there was a video added which covered the whole use of the tablet in detail. Processes, like \"retopologizing scanned mesh\" structures were immediately used in the course of my official work requirements. This alone was worth the cost of admission. This is tremendously beneficial to those of us who must work with triangulated dense meshes.
I plan on being the first to obtain access to the advanced course when available, and only hope that my skills with the software continue to grow as a result.
