- While giving hair more volume might be hard to achieve…in the real world, it's pretty easy to do in ZBrush.…This first phase of sculpting hair is often overlooked.…A lot of people get distracted by the tens of thousands…of individual hairs and forget to give enough time…to getting the volume right.…Let's see what we can do with Spencer's hair.…Let's use the reference plans again,…so let's turn on the Floor,…and we'll turn off Perspective,…and let's look at this from the front view.…And what I wanna do is, get the Move Brush,…make sure I've got that active,…let's make a really nice big Draw Size here.…
And we've got Symmetry turned on at first,…but we might wanna turn that off…before we get too far with this.…But I just wanna pull the hair out…until it lines up with the reference.…Now it looks like there's a little asymmetry here,…so I'm just going to get it kind of at a nice…in-between one side and the other.…And let's look at this,…actually one thing I wanna do here,…is bring the sideburns in a little bit.…I know those shouldn't be popping out as far.…
