In this ZBrush stylized sculpting training lesson you will learn how to add a skin texture to the octopus by using a variety of techniques that incorporate both the type of brush stroke as well as an alpha map. Your instructor will demonstrate how using either a combination of the two or just isolating one, you are able to create different looks to the pattern.
- [Voiceover] Let's do the exterior detail first,…which is basically, adding some, just like dimples,…throughout the skin texture,…an easy way to do that, we could at this point actually…create another layer,…I'm going to keep it…at this layer for now.…But what I will do is I'll save my file,…just to make sure that we're safe.…So we're up to version seven now.…And I'm going to switch over to…the standard brush,…but I want to change my stroke pattern,…to a spray.…
And I want to change my Alpha…to the Alpha seven.…So let me go to a plain area on the book,…and show you what that pattern looks like.…So if I hit the spray,…okay, there we go.…So you can see the kind of pattern that we are getting.…And that may be a little bit too much, for what we want,…but there is ways to adjust that.…I can change this,…go to dots,…so that I'm just working with the Alpha,…the problem is…it keeps everything uniform,…it doesn't add any kind of jitter, in there.…
Another option is to just use the Drag Rectangle,…and to literally just drag out the dimples…
