Alright, so I tried out a polypainting tutorial, and I think this looks okay, but obviously not up to snuff.:

Is there any general tips that you guys could give to make this thing come to life? Any trouble areas that I could fix?
I'm fairly new to Zbrush, so if there's some sort of plugin, button, or function that I could or should utilize, please tell me!
Any and all help would be appreciated, and thank you!

Ah, really? I had some incredibly bad results last time I tried 3d-coat. Is there some tool I'm missing, or technique that I should use?

Don't listen to the trolls here. The large majority of the professionals in the industry use polypaint. You just need to learn more about painting in general, the techniques for creating believable skin textures. It applies to any software, neither 3DCoat nor Mudbox are going to make that easier to do.

Also, 3DCoat is religious trash created by a nutjob, please don't support it and him.

Except, they do. ZBrush is the industry standard, go around and all your favorite 3D artists and take a look at what they use, most of the time it's going to be ZBrush. Most studios ask for ZBrush as well. And if you were at all a part of the community and not just 4chin, you'd see how prevalent ZBrush work is compared to 3DCoat and Mudbox.

>>432133
Except it is true. Go have a nice google search about the 3DCoat controversy. And no, "tons" of AAA studios do not use 3DCoat. 3DCoat is mainly relegated to amateurs apart from the very few professionals who use it THEMSELVES, not the studio.

He has also gone out of his way to tell people not to use his software just because they were sculpting nude base meshes or "demonic" creatures.

I dont even know what to say man except that you're a complete idiot. Zbrush painting is shit - period. People i non-shit studios like Ubisoft (you?) use tools that dont suck fucking dick.

And you saying that your straw man isnt a straw man? Lmao. Stay retarded.

It's ok if you are just looking for cartoon characthers and hand made textures, buf it's free hand, layers in zbrush suck, and image projection it's not that great.

A lot of studios use Mari for films, cause you can paint 32k textures maps over the model or uvs, and has a workflow than works for hi res.

Whatever you use works, substance painter it's new tool, really cheap, and has a really cool workflow too.

Use reference, there is a very noticeable difference between the texture of the horn and the skin.

Actually learn why the animal has skin like that, the wrinkles and skin folds increases surface area and allows them to keep cooler.

It's sad to think we may never see black rhinos in the wild again.

unless his software is literally fucked over by his beliefs, than who cares. "oh no, i supported a bigot" than starve and die because you are always supporting a bigot somewhere down the chain in everything you do/need
