Hello my name is Hezekiah and I have made this forum requesting for some people who can help me and some buddies of mine with this project we are working on(Arround 6 people so far). I've been programming since 2011 and my plan is to make a game I've had thoughts of for years now. What we are looking for: 6 people who can do semi realistic textures/graphics, 6 who have experience using cryengine, and 6 people who can do complex animations with it's going to be a science fantasy, futuristic...
One of the things we'd love to get out of these boards, are a group of gamers who have an interest in designing games, writing rule-sets etc.
We've got several ideas for tabletop games that are in mid to advanced stages, but not close to being finished, and we'd love to find people who want to do more than just help 'balance' games or help 'tweak' a rule idea.
If you're interested in getting involved at a higher level, we'd love to hear from you. Also, if you've got a game idea yourself, but...
Apologies that it's taken so long to reply.
I've got a card game in development, I don't want to post too much about it in public just yet because it's quite an original concept.
The current state of play is that I require an additional series of artwork to be completed prior to the game being production worthy. I have the artists and colourists all lined up to complete the artwork, and will shortly be doing a kickstarter campaign to try and raise the funds I need to get the remaining...

Jonathan, I just added you, you should be able to see the forum now
Just wanted to cover a few basics as far as ZBrush goes. Obviously its a bit of a learning curve going from physical sculpting to working in digital media, and I'm far from being an expert in the field, but I'd like to share a few of my most common tools and techniques I use - hopefully others will add to the list and we can all bounce off each other and try out something new and useful!
I tend to start using a lot of low resolution Dynamesh - a sphere first to rough out the shape of...
Legend! Thats immensely helpful!
I was watching another youtube tutorial the other day that added another tool to my arsenal - The Matchmaker brush. If you have a flat relief image such as on a spacemarine shoulder pad, orientate the relief as a new sub tool hovering above the pad itself, and then apply the matchmaker brush. The relief deforms to the same shape as the mesh below it so you don't have to try to manually move it to shape (as I did when I last tried to do something like that!)
