In this series of ZBrush tutorials, we'll learn how to use some of the hard-surface sculpting tools in ZBrush. ZBrush has always been a great application for sculpting incredibly detailed organic shapes. But did you know that ZBrush has a number of useful tools that will help you to sculpt more hard surface shapes as well? In this course, we'll talk about the Polish brushes, which will allow us to combine smooth curves and sharp edges in a single stroke. The strokes themselves have been enhanced with Backtrack, allowing us to get smoother, straighter lines when sculpting. We'll also cover the Re-mesh functionality which will allow us to combine multiple shapes in Boolean-type operations. We can also take advantage of the ZBrush primitives to give us a great starting point for some of our hard surface shapes. Software required: ZBrush 3.5R3.
