Join Ryan Kittleson for an in-depth discussion in this video Examples of ZBrush work, part of ZBrush 4 Essential Training.
Now that we're at the end of this course, I just want to take a few minutes to…show you some of the work I've done in ZBrush.…I will talk about the tools and the techniques that I have used, as well as talk…about why I used them.…So this is a bull that I sculpted in ZBrush.…I actually started with a base mesh from Maya that is as very simple, rudimentary…model built in Maya that I could then import into ZBrush and then continue to…work on and sculpt on.…Let me just increase some subdivision levels, so we can see more of the detail.…
Now the bull is in an action pose right now, but it was sculpted mostly along…the process in a neutral pose with him just standing still and his head facing…straightforward. Even the tail was sticking out straight in a completely unnatural line.…I did it that way because I didn't want to have to sculpt all these fine…details and muscles independently on one side and then have to do it again on the other side.…I wanted to be able to use symmetry so that I could sculpt everything on one…
