Description

Learn a time-saving workflow for modeling with ZSpheres and building complex organic models using production-applicable tools and techniques. Contains over 4 hours of project-based training for artists modeling with ZBrush. Popular highlights include: creating ZSphere cages, adding ZSpheres symmetrically, transforming ZSpheres, creating insets with ZSpheres, using ZSphere magnets, converting ZSpheres to geometry using adaptive skins, sculpting detail into meshes, sculpting fine detail with alphas and strokes, selecting geometry using polygroups, deleting geometry, re-drawing topology, using a mesh to start new topology, projecting existing detail onto new topology, creating fitted accessories with topology tools, creating accessories with ZSpheres, extracting geometry from existing meshes, appending SubTools, using SubTool Master to manipulate SubTools, creating geometry using ZBrush primitives, using masks creatively with primitives, using deformers, converting primitives to polygon meshes, and posing with Transpose and Transpose Master. Software required: ZBrush 3.1 and up.
