Colonel Zbrush 3!!!

Here is my first sculpture in Zbrush 3. This new version of Zbrush is a big improvement that allows the user to sculpt with more control, more response, and greater finesse.

This is a European gentlemen, that would sit around smoking with his fellow hunters, amidst taxidermy, tucked away in a war room somewhere. I called him colonel mustard to poke fun at the stereotypical "great white hunter" characterization.
