Overall Satisfaction with ZBrush

I've used ZBrush for 20 years and it's my go-to scalping software for digital characters, product design, and more. Great for lighting, color, material, orientation, and depth information for the points doing different creative projects. I still like this above all digital sculpting tools, apps, and other software. I also can't believe that I bought this 20 years ago and it's still just as great!
  • Best for sculpting characters even down to the smallest pore.
  • Great for points of light on a character.
  • So fast sculpting and crafting for product design.
  • I'm a Mac user, and the desktops/laptops don't have CD drives anymore...Hard to use on newer macs.
  • Painting could be improved.
  • Crashes a few times a year.
  • Easy, light to the tough 3D sculpting for characters.
  • Fast shape creation for product designs.
  • Great for lighting tests on characters and objects.
  • I've had it for over 20 years. It was expensive at first but paid off over time.
  • Ups my services list for 3D graphics.
  • Great for digital artists in general.
Even though it's 4x as old, ZBrush is still better in my opinion. Plus, I'm just so used to it by now after 20 years. Blender will indeed become better over time and the leading industry standard soon, but for now, ZBrush is still better for me for sure. Love it!

Do you think ZBrush delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with ZBrush's feature set?


Did ZBrush live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of ZBrush go as expected?


Would you buy ZBrush again?


Blender is still behind Zbrush when it comes to production quality. But ZBrush is a bit on the expensive side. But again, I've used it for 20 years. So the $100s of spent back then have paid off many times over by now. Just something to consider when purchasing, though.
