Pixologic's ZBrush 3 stands at the forefront of digital 3D sculpting and 2.5D painting, a new medium that is taking the art and entertainment worlds by storm. Visual effects artist Eric Keller shares his expertise and talents in ZBrush 3 for Windows Essential Training. He presents the concepts behind digital sculpting, shows how to produce fantastic images using the unique ZBrush toolset and interface, and demonstrates the power of the Digital Clay and Sculpting brushes. To offer a richer understanding of the application, Eric gives a guided tour of the interface and addresses the most common problems experienced by new users. Exercise files accompany the course.
So let's say you have your model on the canvas. You are in Edit mode; you can rotate the model, so you are clearly in Edit mode. You are going to sculpt on it with a Sculpting Brush, and nothing happens. What's going on here? Well, the most likely case is you actually have a mask applied to the model and that mask is invisible. So let's open the Tool palette here and stick it in a tray. Go to the Masking sub-palette and see this ViewMask button is off. Let's turn it on and we will see there is a mask applied to the entire model. So you just need to clear the mask by pressing the Clear button and then you are ready to continue sculpting.
The same is true for Stencils. Sometimes if you are working with Stencils it's easy to forget that you can turn the visibility of the Stencil off. If there is no mask applied to the model but you still can't sculpt on it, the next thing you should check is Stencils. Do you have the Stencil on and has it been made invisible using the Show button? So just remember to turn the Stencil off, and then you should be ready to go.
