I've been at this for a couple of days now, it's great fun to work on. I'm starting to realise the power of ZBrush alphas in creating surface textures, the trick is to use them in the right way so they don't look like tiled and flow with the mesh. I have 8GB of RAM in my machine and this mesh has got it at it's limit, I had to change a few settings to get the performance useable. It's obvious that I haven't started sculpting the far side of the body yet. I'm looking forward to posing him/her.
