Join Ryan Kittleson for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating ZSpheres, part of ZBrush 4 Essential Training.
ZSpheres offer a quick way to construct simple shapes.…You can then convert these shapes into polygons in order to sculpt and edit them further.…I just want to get Light Box out of the way first.…I'm just going to click on this button and close it.…So the way you can make a ZSphere is go over here in the toolbox and just click…on ZSphere, and nothing happens at first.…It's just like loading up a Ztool.…You actually have to click and drag in here to open it up.…So what is this strange ball floating in space?…Well, it's really nothing all by itself.…In order to really use it, you have to make other ZSpheres attached to it and…form them into shapes.…
So to add more ZSpheres to this ZSphere, we want to go into Edit mode.…Now you can see if you move the cursor over the ZSphere, it kind of makes a…little spot where a new ZSphere is going to be created.…So if you click and drag on here, you're going to make a new sphere.…We can also move this ZSphere around and reposition it by clicking on the Move button.…
