Join Ryan Kittleson for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating new topology, part of ZBrush 4 Essential Training.
Now that we have planned out our new topology, it's time to actually create the…polygons that will conform to the proper edge flow.…Pay close attention here; the way to do this involves some strange steps.…It's one of those processes that Pixologic has cobbled together from various…leftovers of other features.…But if you memorize these steps, you will be able to take advantage of this very…powerful way to turn a sculpted model into something that can be animated.…All right, now let's go through the steps.…
The first thing you do is go into the Subtool sub-palette and click Append.…We are going to bring in a ZSphere.…I know it doesn't make much sense, but just stick with me here.…Let's make sure we have got this ZSphere selected in our subtool, and let's…see the head disappear.…Let's just make sure that's visible again. What we want to do is shrink this down.…So I am going to go into Scale mode and just click and drag on the ZSphere until…we can't see it anymore.…Good. And just go back into Draw mode.…
