A little History

XMD is the brainchild of 3D Environment & VFX Artist Michael Dunnam. Having used ZBrush since 2005, Michael began to experiment with creating custom brushes in 2012. The XMD brand came about simply because looking through other artist’s brush creations in ZBrush, there were no X named brushes. Since ZBrush uses the first letter of the brush name as a hotkey, X seemed like a logical choice. And who doesn’t love a good X? Behold! XMD was at that moment, born! (MD being his initials of course).
