what are your different ways to manage: when you want to use a tablet screen pressure pen to draw how you yourself as user of 3D do: do you use Mudbox, or ZBrush, or what software? to convert a 2d line/drawing into a 3D mesh or could i imagine you do: you conceive to do that in Ice or even Houdini? i think my experience with Mudbox is that there is a balance between chance encounter and guidance/control by the drawing gesture , so as happen with hand drawing with a 2B pencil on paper. (you can decide the proportion of intuition and chance, and undo or corrections) yet there is a greater proportion of chance/hasard, in proportion to the less reflexion/practice of the tools offered by Mudbox, you have allowed yourself to indulge. no? i don't know, either way: 1) there is a 'medium' quality provided by the fact that I am working with Mudbox as a medium, which helps finding through ordeals and tests a new kind of making/conceiving drawing art. 2) i hope as well, nevertheless, to find Mudbox to constitute the smoothest way possible, an appendice or prosthesis of my Imagination, which has been experienced by years of practice of 2B pencils drawings on paper since childhood, and art history and geography documentations in experiences & archives. i know most of the 3D industry is turned towards photorealism, and i am not. yet it is also changing since one or two years. (i also do not like to use the word 'organic' to describe forms which are 'natural', when talking digital art) so i am asking you, in my position, do you, or would you, use Houdini, or ICE XSI, or Mudbox, if you want to invent new shapes in your Imagination, thanks to 3D tools (so which ones, extractions, vectors(?), etc, etc?) Thank You in advance, Mathyas
