Join Ryan Kittleson for an in-depth discussion in this video Learning a few more common brushes (Polish, Clay, Flatten, Inflate, Tracks), part of ZBrush 4 Essential Training.
There are many more brushes to choose from, but most of them are either…variations on the ones I've shown, are rarely used, or are fairly obvious and…don't require any training.…In this movie, I just want to hit on a few more of the important brushes.…Let's open up the DemoRhino.…I also want to make it a little bit brighter so that it's easier to see, and…also let's go into Geometry and hit Divide a few times so that we have more…polygons to work with.…I am hitting F to zoom in a little closer.…Now let's talk about the Clay brush.…
Clay is meant to mimic the effect of roughly smearing more wet clay onto a sculpture.…The keyboard shortcut for that is B+C+A. I also want to crank up the Intensity a…little bit, and let's shrink the brush.…So it's good for the early stages of sculpting where you don't need a lot of precision,…you just want to get something roughed in.…The Polish brush is very handy for sanding down rough spots.…The shortcut for that is B+P+0.…
It very gradually eats away at parts of the model that stick up, grinding them down…
