Join Ryan Kittleson for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating new topology, part of Digital Creature Creation in ZBrush Photoshop and Maya.
Now that we've got our guidelines for new topology, it's time to actually create it.…Looks like our exercise file came in upside down.…That's okay, we can just grab in the open space and rotate it up.…Retopology in ZBrush is a fairly straightforward yet time consuming job.…It's a good opportunity to just put on some music and get in the mindset of just…working till it's done.…There are some things to look out for however, ZBrush has a few quirks that will…make Retopology a hassle if you weren't paying attention.…So we've got our model here with guidelines already drawn on it.…
Now to get into Retopology mode, it's going to be a few strange steps, so be…sure to pay close attention.…I am going to scale in here on our creature and let's go to our SubTool palette,…go to Append, and pick a ZSphere.…Now let's go up on our SubTool palette and make sure we got the ZSphere selected.…Now it's kind of big and in the way, so I want to go to Scale and just click and…drag on this to shrink it down, and let me actually just move it, so it's up…
