First Try at Polypainting

But since I am trying to learn Zbrush, I thought that I should do it in with Polypaint, and so far I am liking the results. Here are the renders from the horns:

At first I was a little hesitant to use Polypaint, but one of my friend Zac loves polypainting.

I will continue to work on painting it, but I wanted to show some progress before I have to go to work.

That's all for now, thanks for reading!

Now that I can see that the UVs turned out ok, I will continue to polypaint. I will have to watch a few tutorial videos, but I'm sure it will be fine. Thanks for reading!
