- Before I get into sculpting this head I want to hit…on a little bit of my process and philosophy of sculpting.…I want to talk about the core of my thought process…so that everything that comes after…should make more sense.…First a note on my computer setup…I usually work with two monitors,…one with ZBrush and one with my reference images.…If you have only one monitor you should probably…print out copies of the reference images…and stick them up on the wall next to your monitor.…Throughout this course you can assume…that I'm looking at reference images as I work,…either in print outs or on another screen.…
My second note is more philosophical.…You'll notice that as I start I'm not importing…image planes of the orthographic images…that I just made in the last chapter.…I'm also not starting from a stock head model.…All I do is I go to Dynamesh16…it's one of the files that comes with ZBrush…here in the project folder.…Just double click on that,…and we'll start from this sphere.…Now why am I starting from such a rudimentary stage…
