    Zbrush question with first sculpt

    OK so i am teaching myself how to sculpt in Zbrush i must say it is gnarly. i just opened the program yesterday and i am still getting used to the interface still.

    Ok so here is my main question, i started a head sculpt and it is going ok having the usual problems when learning somehting new, but i saved the doc and later on i open it and i couldn't work on it anymore as a 3d form. forgive my ignorance in this but i feel like i should have done something before i saved it to preserve it... i don't know... if anyone could help me out a little with this i would greatly appreciate it

    ok i am not sure about questions here but i will post the shot that it is stuck in so i wont break any rules hopefully.

    Did you save your sculpt as a tool. It should have the .ztl extension. You would then load that up to continue sculpting it. If you only saved it as a document, I don't think you can continue sculpting that.

    If you haven't already, you should download a .pdf called "practical guide" from the pixologic webby. You might need to register, but it's free.

    Follow along with a few tutorials and you should be up to speed soon enough.
