Join Ryan Kittleson for an in-depth discussion in this video Installing the custom brushes, part of Sculpting Portraits in ZBrush.
- ZBrush has many brushes that do a great job of sculpting. However, there are a few special situations where a special brush can come in handy. With this course I'm providing a few of my own custom brushes for free. Let's see how to install them for use in ZBrush. If you already have ZBrush open, go ahead and close it. Next you'll want to navigate to the Free Excercise files, and go into Brushes. Go ahead and select everything in here, and copy it with Ctrl+C or Cmd+C.
You can also right click and go to Copy. Next you'll want to navigate on your hard drive to where ZBrush program files are stored. On a PC it's Program Files (x86). Navigate to Pixologic, ZBrush, ZStartup, BrushPresets, and then paste them in here with Ctrl+V, Cmd+V, or right click and paste.
When you're done with that you can go ahead and restart ZBrush. I'll just open up one of these default projects. Now you can access these brushes by hitting B on the keyboard. These custom brushes aren't absolutely necessary, but they will make life a little bit easier when you get into the fine details.
