Join Ryan Kittleson for an in-depth discussion in this video Preparing photos for use as references, part of Sculpting Portraits in ZBrush.
- Two of the reference photos…are going to need some special attention.…Let's go into the Free Exercise files,…reference,…let's go into Spencer,…and let's go into distance.…These are the long-distance shots.…What I want to do is,…get a front view and a side view.…I usually like to work with the side view…facing to the right of the image.…If you want to use a left-facing image,…what I might want to do is,…flip it in Photoshop…so it's facing the other direction.…
Let's get these two.…What I want do to is, go into Photoshop,…and let's just drag and drop these images in here.…Now, before we can use them as image planes in ZBrush,…we need to make sure…that the front and side views are aligned,…so that all of the features of the face…are on the same height of the image.…In this video, I'll show you how to make sure…that these two most important photos are straight and level.…Okay, now let's put both photos into one document.…
Let's get our Move tool,…and I'm just going to drag and drop this image…from one document into the other.…
