Can you make a Pokemon wallpaper with non gen 1 Pokemon in it? I would totally use something like that for my background.

You do all in Z-Brush? I'm kind of fond of modeling things from single cubes in Maya.

My best (yet crappy) model of a robot that I tried to do in a megaman style but that subconsciously ended up looking like Blitzcrank (I swear it was never my intention for him to look like Blitz).

Interesting,, should I invest time in learning how to use Z-Brush? I'm a wannabe artist and normally don't have too much time to do 3D but I would not deny I love to do it anyway, however if I'm not mistaken it would imply learning how to use one of those tablets to use properly.

Oh another thing, are LoL models done in old fashionable cube modeling or they are also done in Z-Brush? I mean, the latest model certainly looks more detailed than the old ones.

I actually called him Rob-5 (what can I said, I loved short circuit when I was a kid).

ZBrush is a bit hard to learn at first, but once you get used to it, its super fun =)
We do both actually! some people prefer hand modelling it out traditionally, others like sculpting it and rebaking all the details down to texture form, so you dont have a blank canvas to start with I guess..in the end, we still have to do a polish pass and make it all painterly and stylized to fit into the game though =)
