Androids started appearing in science fiction over a hundred years ago, and have since evolved from robotic machines into more fully humanoid shapes. With modern 3D modeling tools like ZBrush, it's easier than ever to create a realistic looking android that bridges the divide between man (or woman) and machine. In this course, Ryan Kittleson teaches you how to model a female android with ZBrush's powerful modeling and sculpting tools. He shows how to start with a basic model and refine and stylize the anatomy. Then you'll learn how to concept machine-inspired parts like vents and wheels; create clean, hard edges; refine delicate areas like hands, feet, and joints; and add finishing details like seams. In the end, you'll put the android into an action pose and create a rendered turntable video that shows off your model.
Alright, so we've reached to the end of the course. I had a great time making this android, and I hope you learned a lot of new things. I'm sure it's going to come in handy when you make other things in z brush as well. If you want to take this android further, there's some other courses in the lynda.com library that you can help you out. For example, you might want to check out Vehicle Rigging and Maya Adam Crespi. In this course, you can learn how to set up the joints in the android, so it moves and animates appropriately. You also might want to look at Creating Shader Networks in Maya and mental ray with Aaron Ross.
In this course, you can learn about how to set up the material properties for rendering in Maya, and mental ray. This course can help you produce some really nice photo realistic renders. If you don't use Mia that's okay, there's lots of other courses in the lynda.com library, that cover how to do the same basic thing in other programs, like Blender and 3DS Max. So, thanks for joining me on this journey of modeling an android in ZBrush.
