Start your project and the creation of your base mesh using the ZBrushCore ZSpheres. Learn to create the body for your creature in a T-pose, before moving into the sculpting part of the tutorial.
- [Instructor] Now that we know the inside outs…of working with ZSpheres let's kick off our project…by building a simple armature for our creature.…I like to start fresh so let's go ahead…and select the ZSphere from the Tool pallet.…And before doing anything else let's go ahead…and save it into the Zprojects folder…and I'm going to name this file CreatureArmature01…and click save.…Okay as I mentioned in the introduction to ZSpheres,…they have a hierarchy, and this ZSphere right here…would be the beginning of the chain.…
So knowing this is very important…because we are about to create a biped creature…with two legs and two arms, so we need one side…of the ZSphere chain to go up…and maybe the torso and the arms and so on,…and the other one for the legs.…In other words we need to create a ZSphere at the top…and another one at the bottom…and that leaves this original ZSphere…as roughly the belly of the creature.…Now before I add a new ZSphere I want to enable symmetry…and this will allow us to work on only one side…
