If you want to add geometry to a model, like let's say you wanted to make some…ears, or a neck for a head, you can use Edge Loops to make an extrusion to the…model. I'm going to demonstrate this by starting out with a very simple Poly Sphere.…You can quickly load the Poly Sphere into ZBrush by pressing the Default…ZScript button here at the top of the canvas, and this brings back the startup…screen, and I'm just going to press on Poly Sphere, and it will load on the…canvas already in Edit mode.…Now, the first thing that I want to do is lower the Subdivision Level as much…as possible on this model, so it can very easily get in there and add geometry…to it.

Then to…add even lower levels of Subdivision, I'm going to press Reconstruct…Subdivision; once, twice, three times. Now I have a very low resolution Poly Sphere.…
The other levels of Subdivision are still there, they haven't been removed. I…
