Join Ryan Kittleson for an in-depth discussion in this video Tips for making good edge flow, part of ZBrush 4 Essential Training.
Edge flow can be a challenging thing to get right.…There's the theory behind it that I mentioned in the last movie, but there's also…a lot of practice and experimentation that goes into a thorough understanding of it.…Hopefully, with the following tips you will gain a better understanding of what…goes into good edge flow.…Let's open up the head_linesdrawn exercise file to look at what a finished edge…flow drawing looks like.…It's a Ztool, so I have to click and drag to bring into the canvas.…Let's go into Edit mode and I'm going to hide the Light Box.…I'm going to hit F, so we can see it full screen.…
Okay, so I use different colors than you saw on the last video, but it's…the same thing really.…The first thing I want to talk about is keeping it clean.…This means to avoid the temptation to follow every little detail, and instead…focus on just the things that have a structural significance.…So you see all the major structures of the face have been followed with edge flow lines.…However, I want to zoom in here on one thing and note how I didn't follow…
