ZBrush Core Mini was released by Pixologic earlier this year. It is a cut down version of ZBrush Core, which in itself is a cut down version of ZBrush. If you donâ€™t know, ZBrush is the grand-daddy of digital sculpting packages and has been around since the late 1990â€™s. You can see elements of ZBrush reflected in Mudbox, Blender, Modo, Maya and now even in Mobile Sculpting apps like Forger and Nomad.
Pixologic holds a ZBrush Summit every year in Los Angeles where ZBrushers from all over the world congregate to listen to studios talk about their work and also take part in Sculpt Off events.
Pixologic offers a free full version of ZBrush for download that runs for a generous 45 days, with no watermarks and no other types of functional restrictions. The trial version lets you test-drive all the exciting 3D sculpting features this software has to offer. You can get a flavour of the main program by using ZBrush Core Mini and if that is feeling good for you then move up to ZBrush Core.
