Hard surface - NOTE 41 year ago
ZBrush is king! I was able to smooth out all the weird little aberrations that were bugging me for so long with a nice 15 minute session of smoothing and easing verts. Smooth as silk. Thanks for the excellent advice Paul. Also the lighter text, with localized resolution to keep the sharp corners probably took me about 1/4 the time than the ridiculously heavy version I made previously. Live and learn!
